Need Advice about Jack

Hi Everyone,

I have recently adopted a rainbow lorikeet named Jack. Unfortunately he didn't have the best start to life, through lack of education his previous owner did not properly care from him. I need some advice about his behaviour, he has one specific toy he is absolutely obsessed with, if i go near it he is very aggressive and noisy. This toy was the only thing he had in his cage when i bought him, so im wondering if he has attachment issues? I recently took it off him as he is so obsessed with it i feel its detrimental to his health, but since taking it away he isn't as chirpy and just overall seems sad. He already has an issue with feather plucking so im worried this will make it worse.

Does anyone have any advice in how to deal with this? Should I give it back and have an aggressive bird or keep it away and have a sad one?! Help!
