    Connie, I wouldnt think you would have any problems with him
    adapting. He knows you and just let him adjust be patient
    and he will be fine. We took in a 10 yr B&G and he is my big
    baby. All our macaws are rehomes, even the untame have come
    around.This is why we have rehomed 18 and owned by 10 cant
    have just one. LOL
