Actually you have gone off half-cocked here Mr Lango Lango.  Did I say he
was in a cage?? NO.....! read the email again
I was walking through a breeder's aviary one day 3 years ago and noticed the
poor bird which had just fledged dragging himself around on the ground.
When I asked what the problem was he said that it was crippled and that he
was going to wring its neck the next day.  I protested and so he gave it to
me.  Ollie, (the parrot) my good mate spends most of his time on a towel on
top of my microwave at night (when it is not in use).  I fly him around
regularly by sitting him on my hand and running and he flaps.  I take him
most places with me and everybody loves him.  He spends most weekends in a
tree outside climbing all over it because you see he doesn't know he is
crippled and to look at him you wouldn't know - only that he can't fly (but
he did once right into a dam - but that is another story) and he walks on
his "elbows" rather than his feet.

He does have a cage but only to sleep in at night.
