Parrot and towels

I have a Black Lory that all of sudden really wants to get to a dish towel that we have in our kitchen. Every time we take her out she flies over to, even if we try to stop her. She sleeps with a towel in her cage at night, but this one is dark and we have never used it with her. Any thoughts on what is going on?

Parrot and towels
by: Linda

Parrots usually like the lighter colored or pastel towels and coverings though her attachment to the dark one is okay. Keep a close eye on her though to make sure she does not eat the fabric because this will cause a severe impaction that will require surgery if it gets past the crop. It will still require an Avian Vet to remove it if it impacts the crop, so better to be safe than sorry AND poor later!

Also watch for strings that can get tangled around toes and legs cutting off the circulation.

Otherwise, she just likes something about the darker one.

Thanks for a question that was easy and fun to answer!!!
