hey Thomas this is Rohan from India.I also j\have taken an alexandrine baby which is about 2.5 months old and i am having him since 1 month......suddenly even he has sarted to behave very strangely and alwaz wants to bite me.he allows me to hold me only hen placed on the t stand but not when he sits above the cage.parrots are very moddy and when they come to a huamn home they feel very scared and need lot of time to gauin trust and frenship.u need to give ur parrot many toys and good treats.u should tok to him early morning and in evening.this will build trust between you botha nd the bird will show a good behavior.try this and add me on fb.
