Disaster in the IT department

So, guess who didn't close the feeder tray properly before going to work yesterday? And guess what happened when someone else decided to explore? I feel like I've learned an important lesson...

I know I shouldn't have laughed.....

She didn't actually eat any of it, I hope? Is she ok?

Oops! I didn't do my homework because my parrot ate my keyboard!

Whoops. I hope she did not eat any of it.

I guess the temptation was just too much.

Re: Disaster in the IT department

Ohhhh my gosh!

I am so glad i am not the only one I left him for 1 minute...




Were you able to pop the keys back in? On a laptop it is super hard to put the keys back in?

Will you have to sent it away to be fixed?



Thank god on a keyboard they all go back in fine, except the ones he destroyed... So now i just have some letters and numbers, where other letters and numbers should be.. Bit confusing

This was a few months ago, he doesn't mess with the keyboard anymore!


I wonder what it so fascinating about a keyboard though?

They just clip on like a "normal" keyboard but it looks like he's mangled some of the underneath "bits". Might need a new keyboard, it's not hard to change it over, but might cost a bit, being Sony and all. Might be time for a new computer.... Could always use an external keyboard, I suppose.

It's a lesson for me to watch my girl carefully. I have some good (and expensive) keyboards that she positively definitely must not eat!!

Re: Disaster in the IT department

O no! Well, at least you can get an external keyboard and still use the computer. My parents cockatoo did that to my computer once when I was in high school. My mom couldn't find him and my room was the last place she checked (he didn't normally go in there). Sure enough, he was in there, tearing up my keyboard and looking rather smug with himself. I think a lot of keyboards have been lost to curious beaks. Wonder whats so fascinating about them?

Re: Disaster in the IT department

Thanks Tab and Kiwi, glad I'm not the only one!

I've done a partial salvage job but she managed to destroy the mountings of a dozen of them so it's not hugely usable as it is: I'm writing this using the onscreen keyboard to fill in the 'g's and 'w's, and the e key keeps coming off as I type! I think I'm going to replace it with a tablet which is substantially less destroyable... she had a good go at the tv remote as well but fortunately that was the extent of it.

I carefully counted out all the little parts to make sure everything was accounted for, so fortunately nothing was ingested and she's fine today, so I think we got away with it. When I got in she was looking really stressed - she's not a huge fan of being away from the cage without me to keep watch for her - so I ended up comforting her rather than telling her off - and it was entirely my fault anyway that she was able to get out.

Well, that took a while to type!
