    Hi
    I have just come into possession of a pair of Peach Faces and the female is constantly biting the male.
    Does anyone have any idea why?
    Thank you in advance for your time.

    Are these Lovebirds? The female picks her mate. If she doesnt like this male she may be trying to run him off.

    Cramped spaces as does illness can cause aggression.

    What is your set up? How old are they? They may be stressed from being in a new home. Parrots do not like to be rehomed.
