Harrisons--because it is organic, no dyes, and I have had sucess with it with all of my birds over a long period of time...my IRN also gets veggies, fruuits, and 1-2x a week, seeds. But, the primary diet is Harrisons adult fine, lifetime normally but high potentcy during molts.

mine wake with the sun and sleep when it sinks...except in the summer when it is light until 9:30ish, then I cover them around 8pm.

When I keep them up later than that, they are likely to get cranky, when they get cranky, they are much more likely to take a chunk out of my finger.

My first suggestion is to get his wings clipped. ...before he hurts himself. Then work on the training. There is lots of good advice available on this board, just keep asking questions.
