"We just bought a 5 year old male from a woman who has taken very well care of him. She had to sell him due to health reasons of her own; he was not receiving the proper time and attention he deserved. When we got home for the first 3-4 days, he was primarily in his cage, frequently coming out to stand on his door. Was also very talkative. Nothing routine wise on our end has changed, but for the last 2 or so days, he has pretty much stopped talking, stays inside the cage and scratches/prunes? himself. He is clipped so he cannot fly but our coffee table is right under his door for him to hop onto. Problem is when we come close to him slowly he is sort of brave (we can tell he wants to retreat) and stays on the door. He readily accepts treats from both myself and daughter as well as strangers. What would cause him to suddenly stop talking, occasionally squawking, and still not fully leave his cage? We are getting very disappointed and want a happy fun macaw. I just don't know what to do. Any suggestions?"
