Default Biting habit after going out of town

As most of you know Cloud is a little brat 8-9 months old, very tame and talking. But I went out of town for 5 days and had to leave him for boarding at a local exotic bird breeding store with lots of parrots and some budgies-he was in his own cage by himself but can hear and see the other parrots. When I bring him home he acted all the same, except he started biting my hands super hard to a point it hurts pretty bad. - he normally never bites my hands. Is this a reaction he is mad at me b/c other humans took care of him, so he thought I just gave him away? I did not move my hand away when he bit me not to encourage biting but he continues to bite even harder then.

Sounds like he has developed a little fear in short. Start over with him like he is a brand new bird and reestablish his trust....

He is coming to my hand and sitting on me and talking to me and everything, steps up to the finger. but then he starts playing with my hands then starts biting really hard and chirps at the same time so confusing. but he took a batch in my hands today, so he still trusts me and all but may be mad at me somewhat because i left him alone when I went out of town

Hi, it is possible he is actually becoming mature as he is of the age when they can start to display this sort of behaviour.
He is more or less showing he is the boss and trying to be dominant.
Sort of sparring with you, as he has come home he can be a little unsettled as well.
give him a week or two and see what he is doing.

Hi Island,

Mallorn did that the very first time I went away on vacation for a few days, too. She would act nice and then bite suddenly--she was definitely mad at me. She squawked a lot during this time, too. After a few days, she got over it and started being normal again. However, Cloud's biting could also be his maturity level--if he's around "teen stage" (5-9 months) he may be acting defiant towards you.

Either way, chances are that soon he'll be less angry and aggressive as long as you keep working with him patiently and he realises you're there to stay
