I THINK YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB WITH YOUR NANDAY AS HE GETS OLDER HE WILL LEARN WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG ALSO IF YOU GIVE HIM LOTS OF FUSS HE WILL START TO TALK RATHER THAN SQUACK ALL THE TIME NANDAYS CAN BE LOUD IN THE MORNINGS. AFTER 3 MONTHS ALSO HE WILL GET USED TO THE HOUSE AND SOUNDS THEN HE SHOULD START TO BE BETTER.TRY TO INCLUDE HIM IN EVERTHING YOU DO SO HE REALLY GETS TO KNOW YOU AND THE FAMILY REALLY WELL.DON'T BE ALARMED BUT YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE HAD THE BIRD SO EARLY NORMALY THEY ARE 3 MONTHS OLD BEFORE BEING SOLD, MAKE SURE THE ROOM IT STAYS IN IS AT LEAST 20 CENTGRADE PUT SOLID FOOD IN HIS CAGE ALSO MAKE SURE HE HAS PLENTY OF FRESH FRUIT 'IE'APPLE,GRAPES,PEAR,AND RICE. GOODLUCK WITH YOUR NEW BABY. PLEASE DONOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS I DID,I LET MINE OUT IN THE GARDEN UNCLIPPED AND HE DIDN'T RETURN.PLEASE BE CAREFUL.IF I CAN BE OF ANYMORE HELP PLEASE CONTACT ME AT ANDYTURN@BTINTERNET.COM
