Crunching

Last night, around 2 AM, I woke up to a weird crunching sound. I wondered if large insects had invaded our house. I listened for a while, and realized it was coming from where Sam was. I got out of bed to investigate, and found Sam ripping one of the perches in his cage apart. In the middle of the night!

Now, this perch is supposed to be one of those that Amazon's can't chew up. It has lasted around three years so far, so I thought we were safe. Nope.

I had to speak to him and tell him to go back to bed. He finally did, and when I woke up this morning, his perch was toothpicks!

Whatever made him get up at 2 AM to chew a perch he was sitting on I will never know. He has never done anything like this before. Such a weird bird! LOL

Re: Crunching

Lol. Maybe he had a bad dream and chewing wood comforted him? Or maybe he was sleep chomping? What a funny bird.

Re: Crunching

That's hilarious, I've never heard of a bird chewing stuff let alone it's sleeping perch in the middle of the night. The most I've heard at night from Jacob my blue and gold is the occasional freak out. Some snoring, and if we wake him up mid sleep he'll say (occasionally in an angry tone) "it's time for dodos" or "I'm tired".

Re: Crunching

And of course now he is exhausted. Sleeping up on top of his cage. I have to go buy a new perch!
