Taco, my female lovebird and I have a rocky relationship. I mean ... yeah. Just what you would expect from a female lovebird. But we were doing good. We were back to training, and I found a way to get her out of the cage.
Now she had a wound on her littel feet. To make sure she didn't touch it, she has a mini cone of shame on.

Because of her being in breeding mode 24/7, I never give her any newspapers. But now I kinda needed to do it to have her distracted.

Today or tomorrow I need to remove her cone of shame. I need to grab her and she will not trust me again. It really makes me sad. I mean. We worked soooo hard. Oh well. I am going to order some extra millet

Instead of paper, tie a foot toy to the cage wall for her to fuss with. something she can pick at. Ultimately she may destroy it but she'll have to work a little harder than paper.

Yes, plenty of millet and being around her cage!

I chose this toy for my bird, had things to preen and crinkle paper to pull out;

And when I take the collar off in the afternoons, I have put some palm leaf to distract him away from picking his freshly healed skin,

Thank you for your advice! She doesn't care about other things besides
- Millet
- Paper
- Other food

For a while I had tougher paper. That worked. Up until she figured out she can shred that too.

Your little one is cute @Zara

Taco her cone of shame is off. And it was kinda hard to get it off. She hates me. It makes me sad. But I know the grabbing her was for her own good. It’s just not how I roll. I hope she will forgive me someday.
