    Ha ! Thought he had left with Grack friends , no such luck ! it thinks I am it's flock .If I go outside it lands on my head and follows me around . I have to put food on the top of the cage for it , or it will beg . Does not know how to find food on it's own . Gin

    Maybe instead of putting the food on top of the cage take some and scatter it around the yard... Just a thought.

    also just gradually taper off the feeding. If you've been feeding twice a day go to one then every other day etc etc.

    No problem. During my unfortunate unemployment when the dot com bubble burst I learned a great deal of useless knowledge from discovery, animal planet etc. Glad at least some of it was usefull

    I took your advice and it worked ... kind of ... Grack has been outside for a week , I was bringing it into the porch at night , quit that.... but now it bugs me to bring food ,corn , boiled egg , apple , and shredded fake crab . It is getting better only shows up about once a day to pig out . Gin
