Re: Do you ever wear earplugs?

I agree that clipped birds don’t really have a way to get their energy out, so that might be a reason for the screaming. Exercise may be his one need that isn’t being met. Have you considered letting him be flighted?

I also suggest cutting down on the fruits — they have a lot of sugar and he doesn’t need that much energy if he’s not burning it off. Pellets, whole grains, and lots of veggies are much better options for diet. Fruits should be used as occasional treats and not given every day. Switching him to a non-fruit flavored pellet (unless you use ZuPreem Natural, not the FruitBlend) would also be a good idea.
