What do you expect? When you bring one home, you expect him to have some talking ability, be a great mimic, be intelligent, sociable, and give you unconditional love and companionship. This is what you want and this is what you can have, but you need to treat your bird the same when you first get him as you would a year from now. They are highly intelligent creatures who can feel your emotions and sensitivity. They will love you like no other. They bond very strongly to their owner(s). Their willingness to be handled by others has a great deal to do with the way they are socialized.
