Advice for a hormonal male lovebird?

Hello! I am quite new to this forum.

I have a little peach faced lovie who's about 2-3 years old now. Usually in the spring and autumn is when he starts getting more hormonal (more bite-y, angsty, etc), but recently when ever I put my hand near the cage to replace his food and water, he attempts to regurgitate on it :\ . I usually finish what I'm doing and back off for a little while as to not encourage it. I also make a rule for myself never to touch him on his belly or under his wings either.

Does anyone now how much out of cage time a single male lovebird should be getting when it's "twitterpated" season? I usually try to take him out for 2-4 hours daily.

Any advice helps! Thanks! ^^

I might need this advice too. My male GCC is so hormonal right now. Poor guy is feeling crazy and irritable. I also don’t know exactly what to do to help him.
I look forward to reading people’s advice to you.

You can allow as much out of cage time as you normally would. Just be sure to cover/fill in any nooks to reduce cavity seeking behaviour.

If he has a "special" toy or thing, be sure it is available for him all the time. My male, before he got a mate, would mate his boing whilst holding a certain toy, so those things were always available for him (and even after he shared a cage with a hen, I left the special items in there)
