Carl has lots of toys, chewing toys especially since I know he likes to chew on everything. I have a bath in their for him as wells o he can take baths. I feed him organics pelleted feed. I used to have him on Harrison's feed and he really liked that but the main ingredient was corn. So I switched his feed to the organics pellets but he doesn't seem to like that very much at all. I have tried mixing it with other food but he just picks around it and eat what he likes. He get lots of flight time everyday. We also have a female nanday named ginger. We got her for Carl a couple months ago to make give him a friend and make him happier. They don't seem to like each other that much and she has obvious behavioral problems. She refuses to come out of her cage. I leave the door open for her and she just wont ever come out. She also wont let you touch her pick her up or come near her and she screams ALL DAY long and gets Carl riled up. It's so frustrating. I love them both so much but I feel like my life is being taken over by them. I put them online before and several people contacted me but I just couldn't bring myself to letting them go, fearful that the new owners wouldn't know how to handle them or give them enough love. That's why i was thinking of giving them to a rescue instead. I don't know what to do though. I have asked people to take care of them when I am away on vacation etc. and everyone is to afraid of changing their water or food. It's just a nightmare! Please help.
