Beaker,
It is not unusual for a cock bird to become aggressive (especially during the growing up stage). Not sure how old your pair was when the first clutch was laid but my guess would be that he was still learning the ropes.
Parrots are like humans in some respect. Their behaviour changes with age. The cock bird appears to be jealous of what is happening in HIS territory and is blaming the hen for his problems. I would suggest he may need to spend some time in solitary confinement. The hen is very capable of raising the babies on her own so dont worry too much about her. She will probably thank you for the change.
As for the cock bird I would house him in a seperate aviary until this batch of chicks have weaned and are ready to be removed. Then relocate the nest boxes in the aviary. Make sure you have at least 2 boxes in and shift them from their current location. Even if you simply put them on the opposite wall. Introduce the cock bird back into the aviary with only the hen in there. Make sure there are no eggs and the boxes are clean.
This may just settle the cock bird down and a change in the aviary is sometimes all it takes to get things back on track. Good luck and keep us updated on how things go.
