This is why we can’t have nice things.

  1. My lil budgie boy (Allen) simply WILL NOT chew wood (okay, he chewed the bark off a tree branch once). I would actually be happy if he chewed his perch, because I think his beak needs worn down; it HURTS when he bites 😯

    • I think females like to chew more than the males. Dewey and Ozzie aren’t as destructive. I know what you mean about the biting. Dewey never bites, but I went to give Ozzie a kiss last night and he gave me a nip (he’s got a very sharp beak). Ouch!

  2. get metal perches. They’re get cold feet (claws) but I bet they wont be able to chew through it! 🙂
