Eddy trashed his cage
by Terry Lawler
(Brooklyn, New York)
We have a cherry head conure - Eddy. Eddy has been with us for ten years now. My husband and I recently took a week long trip to look at fall foliage in Canada. Our daughter who has her own apartment not far from us stopped in to feed Eddy and spend some time with him.
Upon our return Eddy trashed his cage. He picked up each end of his perches and let them drop to the floor of the cage and he disconnected his toys from the top of his cage and let them fall to the floor of the cage. That was three weeks ago.
While he hasn't totally trashed is cage - he still periodically chews his perches, they're wood and we've had to replace one, and he disconnects his toys from the top of the cage. Do you have any ideas on how to resolve this behavior?
