Why is our Sun Conure now biting my husband?

Sun Conure, Boolie getting ready for bed
We've had our female Sun since she was 3 months old. She will be 5 in March 2012. She's only laid eggs once and only 3 of them. I removed the contents and let her have the empty shells until she lost interest.
We've learned that belly and back rubs could encourage her to lay again, so we avoid that.
Up until the time she laid her eggs, we thought she was a male and she was very close to me.
After she laid the eggs, she became VERY close to my husband. But she's also taken to biting him in the face. First his cheek, back of his head and tonight on his lip.
Why is she doing this? She loves my husband and gets excited every time she sees him. She loves to cuddle with him and go outside with him. She still sleeps with me though.
Can you tell me WHY she is biting my husband when she clearly loves him very much? This is causing my husband to want to get rid of her. I won't let that happen. But I'm also very sympathetic with my husband. He says he's going to get rid of her when I'm not home... Please help me with this problem.
