Paper Shredding
« on: January 01, 2012, 11:19:57 AM »

Hi

Is it normal that parrots go onto the floor of the cage and shred the newspaper that on the bottom, he's made a right mess and clicks at me when i tell him to stop it, not sure who's worse my teenage son or Basil.

Thanks for the reply Julie, just wasn't sure if it was normal or not.

Yeah, while they are shredding paper etc they aren't bothered about their feathers!  Hang a telephone directory in his cage and let him loose on that!  :rofl: :rofl:

Rosie feeds the paper from the bottom of his cage out to Bob who pulls it out, tears it up and leaves it around the house - mostly in the dogs water bowl!  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

It's not recently that Dave has started ripping up his paper from the bottom of his cage - so, think the telephone directory hanging is definitely on the cards

Poppy does it on occasions but I've got her shredding toys to play with so she hasn't done it for a while now. Marley has never done it as he can't reach the tray from his grill.
