Lol, soz for not replying sooner! What we do is we never leave the backdoor open when he's out. He stays within the house, and we make sure we know where he is before opening the door, and he gets free roam of the house And he likes human company. So he flies from one side of the house to the other, talking to everyone and everything he can, it's quite funny. Oh, and we don't clip his wings. We never have, and never will, coz he loves skidding round corners, and just skiming over our heads when he flies around. I swear he enjoys himself too much He gets plenty of food and water, and mainly he's a happy little budgie. Very curious, but happy.
