noisy noisy, need some advice.

So as Nacho gets more comfortable he gets more noisy.
My hubby and I dont have a problem with the normal morning, evening and occasional bout of noisy screaming.
Nor do we have problems with chitter chatter.
BUT Nacho seems to have a habit of squawking very loudly from around 7 or 8 to 1 in the afternoon.The rest the day is okay.
Its not just a few loud squawks here and there but every few seconds for hours on end.Ive tried covering him and that does nothing.
Im at a loss.He has a big cage, lots of toys he doesnt touch, and food and water. He can see outside and see the tv.
Im hoping all this will end once he starts coming out of his cage.Then I can get him out during his noisy hours.But in the mean time its driving DH nuts, mostly on weekends when he is home.But he gets sick alot and when he is home sick its annoying him too.
I can put up with it most days, just when Im cranky its hard to take.
Can I speed up the process of taming him somehow?
I blew it yesterday by forcing him out, hoping once he was out he would be happy.Now he is no longer taking food from my hand so we get to start at square one again.
But he never ever attempted to bite me.just tried to get away from the evil hands.

Can you leave the cage doors open at all times while you're there to supervise? Try clicker and target training

I was clicker training but seemed to be taking forever so started having him eat the seeds out of hand rather then take them one by one and run away.Now he has to sit there very near my hand and eat them.I figured I'd slowly move my hand so he has to put a foot on it then eventually two feet.
I can leave the cage open when Im in the room.But he doesnt come out but rarely.
I am going to buy a door and put one up so the dogs have to stay out of the room and he can be out more then.
Its actually the cat I worry about more.The dogs wouldnt touch the bird except by accident.The cat is another case altogether.

Have you tried training him during these screaming hours? It would keep him occupied since you said he doesn't touch his toys.
