I have had Digby for close to two years now (wow... can't believe it's been that long!) and he plucks, he has emotional issues still from his first home. He will be 5 this June. I just moved in with my fiance this past June, and despite all of the progress I made with him, he completely fell in love with Eddy. He will always just prefer Eddy, he will do things with Eddy he never does with me, and he has bitten me several times when I've been in the way. It's a tough thing, but I still love him and I know I made a commitment. Birds can take a very long time to settle, too, I've heard of it taking folks years to get their bird warmed up to life with them.
Know that most all the baby birds will find homes, but older ones will struggle to, especially ones who pluck and similar issues. Three years is not that old either. I say keep trying. Patience
