arrange his day and home so that this won,t happen.
I felt that if nobody mentioned it, he might not think about the
implications of a bird being alone all day. As for my luxury of being at
home all day, believe me, not many would enjoy the luxury of a painful

I am sure that just about everyone here has heard of birds that feather
pluck, scream, or show other signs of distress when they have been left all
day and then ignored because their owners are busy cooking, cleaning,
shopping etc when they get home. There are ways to alleviate boredom as I am
sure most of you also know, like leaving a radio on, or getting another
bird, even a budgie to chirp to.
I had no intention of, and no need to try to tell anyone hear how to care
for their birds as i would be teaching granny to suck eggs, but a newcomer
needs to look at all the angles and think about things carefully before
buying a bird, as I,m sure you will agree.
