Question

I have a male parrotlet who recently turned two years old. I allow him to free fly around the house and he gets a lot of attention and handling, but he has become a bit aggressive and bites frequently.
I'm not sure how to curb this behavior.
I am also considering getting a second one to keep him company. I am concerned he may bond and ostracize me.
Does anyone have any advice regarding these situations?
If I do get a second one, would a male be better than a female? I want to get a baby to form a bond, like I did with Albirdo Hotwings. I got him when he was three weeks old and hand fed him.
I'm hoping his behavior is like the "terrible twos" and will outgrow this aggression that recently developed.
Any advice is appreciated.
