Hi from Maxie the WonderBird!
Hey Cracker! I'm not exactly sure how old I am--the Bird Park where I used to live got some paperwork with me that suggested late 30's, but even my new vet can't really say. So I'm down as 41, I've been with my human for almost 2 years now. We DYH's are perhaps the second best talkers in the parrot world, just below African Greys (when they decide to talk and not just imitate sounds, that is). We are also frequently (and unfortunately) one-person birds. For some reason I can't fly (probably never learned how, and at my age I'm not gonna start now!). But I have learned how to climb down and swing myself over the seedguards on my cage or my playstand and try to wander the floor. But like your new family has learned, that's not necessarily a good thing for a 'chewer' to do. I'm closely supervised whenever I'm out of my cage, and usually put back on the cage or playstand when I get too close to something that I can damage (you should SEE the built in bookcase that I snuck into Between my inclination to chew everything and the two cats that live here, I don't get much floor time, that's for sure. Yes, that's a box on the bed where I'm playing, I love going in and out and chewing them up. As far as toys--that's what they're for--to destroy! Parrots just have to chew, especially wood! My human makes some of my toys with chunks of wood and other goodies and re-makes them after I've turned the wood into mulch--MUCH cheaper than buying the store toys. Just make sure they're safe and use uncoated wood (not fruit or teak or cedar). Hope you had a great day, and come and see me again!
