It broke my heart that he had probably never seen sunlight and had been forced to live in such over-crowded conditions for so long. He is very sweet (although understandably still a bit in shock), and appears to be in good health.

I know that by “saving” him, I am actually dooming many others, and I am pretty angry with myself for my act of selfishness. Should I return him so that I can reclaim my morals, or allow myself keep him despite being fully aware of the practices that were probably used to raise him? Thoughts please.
One man's opinion ;

The time for restraint was , of course , before you bought him . Now , that you have bought him , it has to be all about him . How do you think he's gonna fare if you bring him back to the Hellhole you rescued him from ? Keep him , love him , and stay away from the pet store bird display in the future , a lesson well learned ...
Post up pictures if you can! Sounds like a cutie!
