dark place/bed covers

I'd recommend maybe a Happy Hut or some tent that won't collapse, or have the potential to collapse.
My one-time parrot, Syzygy, LOVED crawling into hidey-holes and such... even despite using the identical training measures with Rusty and Scooter, which worked for them...
Syzygy even walked on his back, propelling himself with the cage bars... he did somersaults ALL the time... awesome little bird, which I adored and gave every treat and toy imaginable to.
One day, Syzygy found his way into the bedsheets...
He never woke up.
He suffocated in the sheets, wrapping himself in and not being able to breathe.
I don't know completely how he managed to do that, but he did.
I learned the hard way, and I still feel BAD about his loss.
It was an accident, but he was the MOST adorable parrot... just like how yours comes across as being.
Maybe it's paranoia on my part, but I'd recommend against building forts, sleeping under bed sheets or other forms of covers... it's too risky and you might not even know until it's long after too late.
I'd say, let him have a happy hut in his cage, but when outside the cage find other interests he's got and appeal too those. Don't let him near the sofa, under any covers, etc. Make him learn not to go there. It's the safest thing to do.

Sometimes not. But it s a good way to keep him entertained! He will do it for a good 30 minutes or more!
