I was thinking 1-2 hours of play time. I don't know what the average play time is, so if it's not enough please let me know. Also, if...

    I feel bad everytime I have to leave Vira alone at home. Though, she totally gets her vegeance upon my return.. So nippy! I've been wondering if she had other parrots in the room if this would reduce her loneliness. She hasn't been plucking or anything, just looking for your opinions. If she...
