|Personal experience, how he has changed out lives. Well, to say the truth, we aren't good "birdie parents", at all. Sadly Mo spends most of his life in his cage, even on a weekday. He attacks the dogs. His poop has RUINED our front door, he will actually squirt it out of his pen onto the door and what you can't get off with cleaning, you end up taking some of the paint off with it. He likes fresh fruit, to which he takes bits off, chews them then throws it on the walls, ruined some more walls with it, but at least those walls were eventually coming down anyway. Oh, and those same ones we had at one point put up wall paper, and he decided the apples on it were too real to resist, more wall paper went up and his cage got moved.
Window frames! can't forget those, he chewed up a VERY large portion of a window frame, thankfully those were eventually getting replaced too. And a table! He's been chewing up a VERY high valued antique table, one reason he is kept inside a lot, if he can't be watched he is in trouble.
Oh, and that NASTY "feeding behavior", he "feeds" (throws up) everything, from his toys, to the salt shaker on the table, talk about embarrassing. Even more, his toy humping problem, we solved that and most of his bored screaming by giving him a box to play in. We go through about 3-7 boxes a week, at least we try to save by buying in bulk, then he gets the box. But really, try explaining that one to guests.
He's pretty much unable to be handled, why he doesn't have his feathers clipped, although I don't think I'd want it anyway with his dog aggression. He really to me, just isn't that pleasant or appealing anymore, we just put up with him and he seems happy enough with food, toys, and boxes. After his owner died we just made a promise to keep him as happy and comfortable as possible. As long as he isn't attacking someone, he isn't to bad to live with, and manages to entertain himself when he can't be out.
Oh, and of coarse he ends up being one of those "non-talking breeds", but he does make some cute noises, laughing, mimicking drinking, mimicking digital buttons like the phone and microwave, he gives "kisses", almost says something that sounds like "thank you" when you give him stuff, and "hi". Wish I could get the cute stuff on video, sadly for as much as he likes my big DSLR, he HATES my little one that take videos.
