I think regular outings, this way Jasper will keep in mind that you are in control. If let out all day, the bird may think it rules the roost and begin to become difficult to put away at nights.

Also it will be easier for the times when you need to leave the house, jasper will be use to being put back often.

Just mho.

I have my birds out all day and cage at bedtime, most nights they know where their 'beds' are, we have some rebelous nights though when they want to stay up. I just coax them to the cage with a treat. Didnt take long to train them to go to the cage. Make cage times fun and enviting, give him something to do or eat, they learn fast. :wink: I usually top up their seed/pellets for dinner, by sunset they want some nibbles so they automatically go to the cages to get dinner, then I close the door. :lol:
Oh and I must add, they are not aloud out when Im not home. If I have to go out, I use treats to get them in the cage, but it can be difficult when they know they have a whole day of freedom! Jibby seems to know when my handbag comes out, Im going out, Lola is frustrating at times, but only takes 5 mins at most usually! :roll:
So its up to you really. Just keep in mind your going to have to step up the training and rules, they can get a little bit of attitude with a whole days freedom. But in time it becomes routine. :wink:

come on sharlene, tell the full story.
amazon was left out of his cage, actually i think there is a good chance he didn't even know he had a cage untill he was about 8 months old.
he slept on his gym and spent most of the day just hanging out.
