It is wonderful to hear you say you’ll never regret getting him. He is so lucky to have you. I have a lot of hope some of these things will work and it will give you a bit of space from him as well. They can be very demanding. Don’t worry if he is calling you. It will take him a bit of time to adjust to your new situation.Thanks for your suggestions. I’ll try the cage before I get his wings clipped I think. He loves his flying. I’ll also keep his food in his cage and see if this helps. I’ll hope puberty gets over sooner than later. Kiwi sounds like a sweetheart. Lots of fun too- and eating well. The parrotlets are very special- and a bit sassy. But I’ll never regret getting him. He's good company. I’m sure your Kiwi is great company too. Thanks for all he help.
Cutest photo EVAR!!! 🥰I got a two year old right now and had a bit of this a while back. One I did increase his sleep time to 13 hours and it seemed to help. Basically we leave him caged a bit longer.
Also Rio has that anger / chew thing you describe. It drives my wife nuts but I figure that at certain times he gets excited and has to chew. When he gets that way I tend to get some toilet paper and let he chew on it. Sometimes I have to play with him on it. Today I wrapped him up like a burrito in with his head sticking out an he just sat in my hand an chewed the heck out of toilet paper making little pieces everywhere. If he does not get the chew out of his system I will put him in his room or his cage. On you time is a privilege he has too earn. Out of cage time is a privilege he has to earn.
