I would suggest that you tell the bird "noooo" in a low voice when he starts to attack your husband, since the bird likes you. He will want to please you, I am hoping.

Also, have a treat the bird likes that only your husband is allowed to give him. That way he will be nice to get the treat.

My husband had to do this with one of our birds when the bird suddenly decided he liked my husband and hated me. It took a few weeks, but Buddy finally decided to be good to me.

Give the bird treats and toys on the play stand to keep him busy and talk to him once in a while to assure him that he is included. You can even be talking to someone else, but looking at him and make him think you are including him. LOL
