"I purchased a Plum Head from a local pet store a couple of months ago when it was 2 months old. The cage I first put it in had sliding openings for the feeding cups and main entry. This was just going to be a temporary cage until I bought a larger one later on. I heard a banging sound coming from the room I kept the bird in. When I went to investigate I found that it was trying to open these doors! It would pull on the top of the door and when it let go, the door made a banging sound. It took only one day for this bird to figure this out! So they are very smart. I went out immediately to buy that larger cage with a lock. I've had the bird for a couple of months now and it is already trying to mimick me. I say 'hello, hello I'm Blaze' and although I do not hear words, the bird is mimicking my adulation when I say this. I talk to it and it 'answers' back. When puchased young, I find this bird likes to be handled (the first week it just flew off my finger) and I can stroke it from head to tail. I say they make an excellent companion! "
