Hello, I'm Dr. Bob. I understand your concern, but this is quite typical behavior for a young bird who's recently been introduced to a new home. Is his cage located in a quiet part of your home, away from T.V. and/or conversational sounds, and do you cover his cage at night with a dark cover?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He could hear the TV and people talking he is cover at night his behaviour starts as soon as he is put in the cage

Okay, thank you. That is one thing you may be able to change to hasten his adaptation to your home. What are you feeding him?
