    Thank you so much for your input . I love this sweetheart but it
    is very trying on me. The lady had him since he was 5 weeks old
    and he had a big room that he was in all the time. Here I have
    other birds and I don't feel it is safe to let any bird out when
    there is no one home. He was going in to get his food and water
    but now he just says water, water,water when he wants a drink. A
    lady that runs a bird farm told me to put him in and close the
    door for like 5 mins at a time. That is not working . Because he
    was never afraid of getting off his cage on me and now he acts
    like he's afraid of me
