My rosycheek conure is about 8-9 months old, super affectionate, and doesn't have a biting problem. However, when "strangers" (people she doesn't know) she gets incredibly defensive and tries to attack them to protect me. Is there any way to train her out of this?

Conure aggression towards strangers

We had challenges with our GC's too once they reached about 6 months old. They suddenly went from loving me to hating me and loving my husband.

I wrote how we overcame this in an article on our training page.
