I have just come back on the forums as I have been unwell for a while and it is good to see some familiar names are still here but it is a shame it's not as active as it used to be. Although I go on Facebook to keep up with family who live away I am not a great user of it To be honest I don't know how it works most of the time! The BL forums have been brilliant over the years I have learned so much far more I think than any textbook as you learn from other peoples experience.
David persevere with your bird. Unfortuneatly I had to give my foster birds back last year when I became ill but Harley (Hahns Macaw) in particular was my little star. He hated me and I mean really hated me when he came! He would try to pluck my eyes out type hated me!!! He would attack me at every given opportunity cleaning the cage was a nightmare. But..... I kept at it and after two years he turned into my baby who I could do almost anything with. It was the greatest feeling when he finally trusted me so you can imagine how I felt when he had to go back to BL. I still have Cleo the U2 who has been so good while I have not been so well just happy to cuddle up in a blanket with me!! So keep going don't give up yet. These forums were so helpful when I needed help so let's hope they grow in strength again as new people join.

Glad you've still got the U2.  Dixie doesn't cuddle but he is lovely; sits by me, plays a special game and rings his bell with gusto!

I phoned and sent a PM reply to yours.  Hope you have the latter.
