Re: Do you ever wear earplugs?

Nope, I donít. Sounds like he needs to be trained to play on his own. Itís a learned skill, but an important one. You might also want to cut his fruit and grains and go to just pellets and veggies, or if you can, just veggies and a few nuts. A clipped bird has a much lower energy output than their wild cousins and in my flock we give fruits as treats only or to breeders who are flighted.
