kitchen demolition
« on: May 29, 2016, 02:54:48 PM »

A couple of months ago my femaie African Grey, Tessa 9, started chewing the skirting board and plaster work in the kitchen.   Whilst on the floor she 'stalks' me, head down and feathers fluffed and will then jump on my foot and bite hard.  Apart from the damage to my kitchen I am concerned that MDF may harm her and I also want to discourage/stop the painful aggression.  She doesn't like demolition toys, other than cardboard and. Any ideas?

They are known for destroying anything they not meant to
Can you encourage her more to  stay above floor level ?
Any ceiling toys ? Play stand ?
Iv got a grey that destroys anything at floor level
Even though flighted she don't fly much so I put her anywhere she can't climb down
Like a ceiling toy or the Java tree x

Whatever your doing today, do it with a smile and remember, there are thousands of people who would want to be in your shoes

i smile cause you have all finally driven me insane!

We took our skirting a off and replaced them with upvc ones there brilliant and easy to clean.
Our hen laid some time ago and I I made em a box out of plain mdf
They chewed the living daylight s out of it.
But they do need close supervision when they are out the cage .
Does he have toys to chew up in the cage ??
