Our expert says:
I am glad that you are trying to do the best for Bokkie. You are describing the beginnings of several behavioural problems that need to be addressed to prevent Bokkie from becoming what we term a "phobic" bird, afraid of everything. This is a common problem in African Greys but if caught early we can show you how to teach him to be a confident and happy bird. We would need to see you both to help you.
