Your bird simply just needs an adjusting period.

Going to a new home is stressful on the bird. He's bitting bc he is scared. Not because he just wants to be mean. Don't take him back bc of this. He simply needs time.

Going to a new home, there's new smells, sounds, objects, and people. This is a lot for a bird to take in all at once.

Just let the bird hang out in his cage, feed him treats by hand, and just talk to him. This will help build trust.

If there's any small kids in the home, please be aware, children are spontaneous, and can potentially frighten a bird more.

Make sure the bird has a reasonably quiet area, where he can see what's going on in the home.

I assure you the bird will adjust. Just give him time.

Yes, you should keep the bird, in my opinion. The bird needs time to get to know you and it's new home. Try to spend lots of time just sitting next to the cage reading a book, sometimes talking to the bird in a quiet voice etc.

Please read the articles on our Parrot Training page for more information on training birds.
