Bird only plays with toys when he is out.

I'm not 100% on this but it seems to me this is the case. He just stands by the door waiting to be let out I guess( this is only when I'm gone he is out all the time when I'm home). He has a very large cage and toys he likes even.
I'd consider getting another Cockatiel but I'm still working on hand fear with the one I have and I'm guessing if I get another one it would make the training/trust process even longer although I very much want a happy bird above all.

I'm not sure what exactly you're looking for...?

In my experience, 'tiels are somewhat less toy-oriented than other parrots. He may be anxious while you're gone, though. Do you leave him a TV or radio going while you're away? A totally quiet and still house, especially if he's used to being outside the cage all the time, is not a comfortable situation for a bird. Silence in the wild means there's probably a predator in the area.
