    Pecking on the security system.

    Hi all,
    I am here to get some advice. I have African Grey Parrots. I don’t like to cage them. I like to see them fly in the home. Even if I let them go out, they always fly back home. I don’t know if it happens to every other grey parrot. They have very loving and funny.
    Recently, I’ve installed a burglar alarm system in the home. So, here is the problem. After installing the system, one of them has always been pecking on the cameras, the wires, and the smart locks. It is very disturbing. He has been doing the same for a week now. I have been trying to make it understand. One time the alarm also went off. I don’t know, how to deal with this. Has anyone had a similar situation with your birds??? Please let me know your thoughts.

    Hi, and welcome. My view: Unless there is some way to enclose the camera, and accessories, I feel it will be difficult to stop him. For whatever reason, they seem to perk his interest right now. In time, he may move on to find another item of interest, but I understand your concern right now.

    Do you have just one room in your home, where you spend time, that you could set up a play gym for him? You can buy them in most petshops or retail pet stores. If you could confine him to that room while he is out of cage, and spend time there with him, he just might like his new gym so much, he will forget about the security system.
