oh what a gorgeous boy! I wonder how old he actually is? how long have you had him?
Is he quite tame?

I have only had him for 3 days. I managed to have him step up. Apparently he had an owner for 15 year who put a lot of work in him I was told he could pick him up and flip him on his back so I think there is a really tame bird inside my friend here he just need to learn to trust hands again. We're getting there! He knows a ton of words!

Oscar has been a little distant the past two days he was letting my husband scratch him but not me. I got him down off the cage (with a little bit of a fight) and placed him on his t stand next to my husband so I could scrub his cage out. He let my husband scratch him again..... so Oscar asked to go night night after and I placed him back in the cage and covered him up like he likes.... a few minutes later I peeked in his cage ( I was feeling a little sad that he likes my husband more). Oscar looks at me from across the cage and said " what's the matter" then he climbed over to me and said" are you ok?" And pushed his head against the bars and let me scratch him for what seemed like forever. Blows my mind.. how incredibly amazing the mind and emotional connection these birds are capable of.

They are incredibly intuitive, and just seem to know what to say at the right time. Be prepared though, they do tend to prefer one human, but he seems to be quite socialised.

He will now have got comfortable in your home and will become more confident and assertive, so be prepared for some battle of wits :D

They are such wonderful birds, it's hard to believe the intelligence of any birds actually.

It definitely helps when husbands fall in love with them too, they are very demanding birds so everyone needs to be on board in a parrot home :)

oh that's brilliant! involving him in lots of things will be so good for him, they are quite nervy around new things so it will do him the world of good. He's gorgeous.
