    misty and Thor

    Ijust got back from vacation. As soon as I opened Thor's cage, he jumped out and demanded scritches. Misty, is doing her usual shunning me for a while before forgiving me for leaving. Misty is still not letting Thor any where near her. he is such a toddler, I'm sure she just thinks he's an annoyance. one of these days, they might like each other. lol

    THor just can't seem to stop chewing on stuff. my earrings, the plastic i have protecting my keyboard, wires, buttons etc. any suggestions to get this to stop? he has a cuttle bone on his cage, and chewing toys there. Ive never had a bird with such a chewing fetish before.

    So happy to hear they are fine. Have you tried dehydrated veggies, or millet sprigs. The veggies are crunchy. The millet might detract them. It is amazing the fascination all birds have for jewelry, computer keys, and electric cords! As I always say, they are forever two year olds! Just like kids! And....are stuck on #2!!!!

    Hope you had a great vacation!

    Haha, they are exactly like two year olds! I think it's just a natural instinct. Mine like to have paper and cardboard to shred, and natural branches with millet hung around. I have a little play "tree" made in the living room where they can do that stuff or hang out with us.

    Still they love playing with necklaces and will go for the phone charger cord the second they see it. Sigh!

    Mine love shredding toys, natural cork bark but they love to get jewelry off of me. I don't think there is anything you can do about that.
