I gave him a mainly eaten corn on the cob. he finished it off but now I find him constantly squatting on it. What is he doing? He is 20.

I am not sure, but you need to remove this right away before it gets a bacterial infection from it.

Water in dishes need to be changed every 4 hours due to the bacteria that forms, this is why water bottles are safer. This stands for fresh food too. If you allow your bird to have access to items gathering bacteria, you are taking a great chance at having to take your bird to an avian vet for treatment due to a bacterial infection.

It is not the best of ideas to share food that has been in your mouth either, again due to bacteria. Also, make sure any human food you share is not salted, oiled or full of chemicals.
