Well he is almost 7 so I think the mechanical engineering gene must have bypassed him.
Or he isn't bored enough ....
Multiple times a day. Every day. LOL. Literally, as soon as I lock it, he has it unlocked before I even move 4 feet from the cage.
LOL. Something like that.
Their scientific name should be Cacatua houdini instead of Cacatua goffini (ana).
Sound normal to me. My sweet Sweden took all the screws out of wooden deck one day!
Don't let your guard down with a Goffin on the loose.
Every door of Keno's previous cage was padlocked. She still tried to open the locks. One day I left the key in one of the locks by mistake and when I came home I found her out and about. My BFA, Casey, never let himself out until a few months after I got Keno. He figured out how to open his cage by watching her.
I'm beginning to think your two Toos could eat through welded steel!
So far, Elvis has only worked on unscrewing one screw from his cage. However, he now loves helping me open and close his food doors and pulling his food cup back inside the cage himself. There's a man who makes these plexi glass nut/bolt toys for parrots that I'm definitely going to get for Elvis when I order my next batch of toys.
@sunnysmom OMG you got a goffins???~~~~!!!!!!! How exciting! I have been away for a while!
Casey, Keno & Cody all unscrewed the tops of their play top cages (ladder bridge with attached perch). Cody got so scared that she refused to come out of her cage and even though it was several years ago she is still skittish about coming out and sitting on the top. Casey & Keno no longer have those cages.
Thank you. He was a foster birdie that we adopted. He actually likes my fiancé more than me. I guess it's only fair since I was Sunny's chosen one. Once we get him settled in more, I will likely go back to fostering too. I just think he needs to adjust more- although he has done really well from day one.
I haven't added the playtop as the cage is pretty high as is and Elvis has still not mastered step up. So I fear I would never get him down if he was up even higher. I stupidly thought Elvis would gradually just learn to step up like Sunny did. I never really "taught" Sunny to do it. It just came naturally once he grew to trust me more. Elvis deliberately wants no part of it. LOL. He hopes on my shoulder when he wants to. So starting this past weekend- although I should have done it sooner- we are doing actual step up training. I plan to get him a different cage in the near future and just keep that one for any foster birds we get- who hopefully aren't mechanically inclined. LOL.
Nope, they would probably go get the torch and cut their way out...
