    So, Howard has always had issues with the Roudybush bag. He sees it and gets PO’d, biting and attacking the poor, defenseless package. Because of this attitude, I don’t let him see it. It’s been about 4 years since his last sighting. At the time, thought he was defensive against the bird pics on the bag...

    Today I was getting ready to give him some Yo Dips, his daily all-time favorite for years, and he lunged at the bag con mucho gusto. Really?! The fight was on. Again.

    Anyone else have Linnies hatin’ on their food packages?

    This is soooooo weird. His mood and attitude are normal otherwise...

    Jenks attacks most bags if they are around, he is not a Lennie but he does it too. I think he does it because he knows something good is in the bag and he wants it. Chip bags are the worst but store bags, bird food bags, even zip top bags are not safe any more and are all on his radar to go after. Trying to get one away from him is fun too, we have mastered the distract and grab method.:lol:

    I have no idea what is going on with Howard! Silly boy! Gigi has never seen her Roudybush bag. I think I'll keep it that way. ;)
    She sees her Nutri-berry bag every day, as she patiently stands on my shoulder as I put one in a dish.

    Taco macaw beats the snot out of Zupreem bags, LMAO. I don't know what he has against them specifically, but they're the only bags/packages he'll go for with such vehement rage. Maybe they just make fun noises when they're being mauled?

    Birds are weird. :lol:

    Roudybush was Enemy #1. He was not a happy camper and exhibited rage I’ve only seen against that bag. He likes the food, though...

    Last night he had problem with his treat bag. Weirdo...

    Thanks, Sarah! I like Marlene McCohen’s philosophy about getting birds out for play, exercise and enrichment.

    Gigi has a temper and I do try to avoid doing things that irritate her. Although it's hilarious how quickly she recovers. She will buzz and shriek if I get close to a fave toy, but then fly over to my shoulder and hang out.

    I might consider putting your food in a plastic container.

    Henry has a temper - imagine combing a Jack Russell with a pit bull and adding a Napoleon complex...


    Yes! I’ve been doing this for the past few years to try to keep the pantry moths to a minimum.

    :rofl: This is hilarious I wonder why it’s such a thing? I tried offering a bag to Yoshi to see what he would do but he just tried to eat the pellets that were inside it. o_O

    Pantry moths are the worst! And once you have them, they seem impossible to fully get rid of. They're why my birds haven't had Nutriberries all summer. I was nearly rid of them but then the Nutriberries. Grrrrr.

    The moths are such a nuisance. I’ve started putting new seed bags in the freezer for 24 hours just to try to freeze out any moths/eggs.

    Found a great solution that really helps with those pests, BioCare Birdseed Moth traps.

    Yes!! And I had some of those Caitec birdie bites that were invaded. So frustrating.
