This may not be correct, but it is possible your bird is afraid of all the things in his cage. Mine absolutely hates any new toy and will sit staring at it like it may murder him for days sometimes, and some toys he simply never accepts so I end up removing them and tossing them. I've gotten to where I just buy the same shreddable toys as he goes through them, so I don't have to go through the long process of him deciding to accept a new kind of toy. Maybe try removing some or most of the toys/swings, etc. Just a thought!
Another thought...should he really get egg every day? I thought I had understood that when they are molting they may have some egg a couple times per week. I hope others will chime in, is it possible he is feeling physically a bit low energy such as when we eat too much and are too full?I read to him and talk to him a good bit, he gets chop with boiled egg whites in the morning with some seed mixed in, and seed/pellet mix at night.
