Just a couple of things to help you and your bird. Take the smooth dowel out and carve it up so that it has an uneven surface or find some birch or white pie tree branches to make perches from leaving the bark on for the bird to chew on. Consider getting some perches like these http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/p ... atid=15079

They will help trim your birds nails and also help him sharpen his beak .
And second thing is try placing a perch up high in your sleep cage as most birds prefer to perch as high as possible when they go to sleep.

Great advice, thanks. I have some Nu perches that are, I believe, what you are recommending. I have some whittling knives and sandpaper that will make correcting that an easy task. As far as the toys and the perch in the sleep cage go, I was concerned about overwhelming the little fella' and I have put several different height perches in both cages now. We were a little over zealous and have a box full of toys and toy making stuff. We have found that toy making is a great family activity. The only drawback is I am a little picky about spacing and things I fear may be an accident waiting to happen. I guess I will have to experience the acrobat in action before i relax my standards. That being said, poses the question, "should I add more toys now or after my parrot has settled in? " I have to say that I have read several "parrot" books, some just about natural parrots but most about training but there is no substitute for actual experience. Thats why this forum and contributing members are so helpful. Thanks again.

I hardly ever use any real toys... I have a couple of tiels and budgies that like to pull on the 'plucking' kind but that's about it. My birds would much rather peel the bark off a natural tree branch, pluck leaves off it and chew the end of the little branches shortening them until they reach the main branch and chew either wood or cardboard than anything else. My grays would not look twice at a toy but would go to town on a nice, stiff cardboard box like there was no tomorrow :D

Oak is listed on the toxic woods list due to its tannic acid content, so it is not safe for your bird.?????

True ! try white pine, yellow is not a good choice, fir, lilac, even rose bushes can provide a good, if short lived perch for your bird.

What is it with cardboard boxes? Rambo turns them into mulch. He squeals with excitement when I give him a new one.
