The usual suspect, Lilly Pilly!

Has landed Val the budgie at the hospital (he's fine!), destroyed a brand new cage, plus my sanity (well that was hanging by a thread already tbh!)

Val's fine, thank heavens! He and Fang both have a bad habit of sneaking into Lilly's cage to steal her food. Usually she doesn't care but just on this one particular occasion she did. Needless to say we all now have eyes in the backs of our heads watching out for the little terrorist now and she is caged when she can't be supervised!

Re: What has your parrot destroyed lately?!

My female U2 escape again while at work last week through food door and she bit it and throw it to ground a 3k diagnosis bidirectional scanner had on the shelf charging. I had to replace the whole front with screen $600 bucks for part. Both her and Cooper rip off trim off the wall while at it and chew the shelf. I guess they figure why not, might as well finish the job?

My female U2 is abnormally big for her size, she almost as big if not as big as my friend M2 and not fat at all. She has large chest muscles and is stronger than even my male U2. She scary powerful for a U2. The problem is she can destroy about any cage without to much issues. She been through 3 cages since I had her and not cheap ones, but kings cages. She rip the welds of one and took the play top off, broke the bars on another and bend the metal food door. The stainless steel one is holding up as thicker bars, but she figured out the food holder as it spring loaded. She figured if she pop it up quick enough she can knock the pins out of place and push it out. She flighted, so she get into everything.

She out of the cage when I off all day and out in the morning and when I come home. She just hate cages as she always escapes them since I got her from day one. My males U2,never even try’s, it just her that like to escape. What funny is she stay on the cage, or figure out the other locks. She once kept closing and opening the door while hanging off of it. She loves to figure stuff out and won’t quit till she figured it out

The amount of stuff Baby broken over the years, if I did use insurance, they would drop me after filing claims?

Ugh, just this morning Francis bit a hole into one of my favorite sweatshirts. Don't have a picture of it. Just disappointed.
