    Are you a situation where you can put her up and outside
    flight? Would her noise bother anyone? I keep my parros
    outside most of the year and they love it especially when it
    rains. Once it starts getting chilly then I have to prepare
    to bring them in.
    I can give you advice on how to see up a nice outdoor flight
    pretty cheaply.
    I worked with cockatoos for about 24 years.
    (Also, be very careful feeding grapes if they are imported
    in the winter time from Chili (Demonte) etc. They apparently
    use some sort of pesticides that is absorbed into the fruit
    and is very fatal to parrots. People say Oh I wash my
    fruit..NO it Absorbed into the fruit and it's extremely
    deadly believe me I know I lost about 8 parrots at one time
    after one feeding. One was a moluccan I had for 18 years!
    The fruits they get now are only those grown in US.
