change in behavior of yellow-nape

our approx. 26 yr old (probably male) yellow-nape previously sweet and docile will no longer stay on his T-stand. keeps climbing down & walking around like a dog. has bitten through tv cable & electric cord & mangled furniture. now has to spend most of his time caged--previously caged only at bedtime. why and what to do?

Yellow Nape changes

Did something change in your house routine? You may never know what is making him change like this. You might have to just pretend he never was the other way and try to train him as if you just got him.

It sounds like he is bored and its his way of getting attention. Do you change his toys out weekly? Do you interact with him when he is on the stand? If he's bored any attention (even yelling) is better than none.
