Does your conure not chew on stuff you make, but chew on stuff you'd rather him not?

Hahahah I make my Green cheeked conure these toys and he dosn't like them yet when I take him out of his cage he finds all these silly things that he just shreds. Does your conure do this?

ALL parrots do this! lol. Today Ida flew on top of the fridge and took the mentos I hid up there and tried to fly away with them. I caught her mid flight and took them and she just flew to her cage and gave me the look of evil.

I buy and make toys for my birds all the time. They enjoy them but at every chance they get they grab something and run with it. Just a couple of weeks ago i was filling out some papers and had my purse on the floor near my feet. My cockatoo got in it and took all of my pens out and hide them on top of here cage. Thank goodness she didn't bust them just hid them. My conure likes to get the kids toy cars lol.

Hahaha YES!! My watch, remotes, my laptop, cables, newspaper, magazines, my phone (this really annoys me) and pretty much everything else! :P

oh...I thought this was a normal conure behavior?!?!?!? LOL! Rio is a turd...she is always after what she is not supposed to have! I think all the stuff that is sold for us to make toys is really a birdie conspirisy(sp) to keep us busy while they are on super secret missions to chew and steal stuff they are not supposed to have! HAHA

Re: Does your conure not chew on stuff you make, but chew on stuff you'd rather him n

I don't know about Conures, but my Nic Nic LOVES to chew...problem is, his "chew" toys are pretty low on his list of "awesome things to chew".

I already need to replace all of his perches, but his chew toys look like I could resell them as Brand New.

I do my best to keep him away from NON-bird items as much as possible, I am sure he would like nothing more than to get his hands...(er, beak) on my remotes, sunglasses and anything else UNbirdy.

I think this is pretty much a requirement of .... perhaps even the definition of being a conure!

Amazons too. Merlin loves pens. Anything in a drawer is forbidden so that is what he loves the most. This week he has destroyed the woodwork over our door, he caught me on the phone & did an amazing amount of remodeling in just a few minutes.

Re: Does your conure not chew on stuff you make, but chew on stuff you'd rather him n

My conure is too much of a "velcro bird" as I call it. He will jump off the cage, walk across the floor and climb up me to get to my shoulder. He won't touch anything else.
My cockatoo, though, has decided that the rug is something to be torn up, so he tries and when I try to get him to stop, he gets a little attitude. He's obsessed with getting to that rug.
