    Ok i have had Scooby 9 years and 6 months never ever has he tried to put his beak into a socket till now. Tom has bought safety covers for the socket next to his cage, the socket isn't turned on well Scooby did just that looky i came back in to the room and caught him red handed trying to push his beek in to the socket he soon got put back in his cage till the covers came back with Tom .Thought this was worth mentioning i don't know if it could of hurt Scooby but im not taking any risks sockets that are not in use now have safety covers on and would hate to read about a any birdy or Parrots been seriously hurt .

    Yes got to be very careful. Whenever I go to toilet upstairs I leave snowy on his perch just outside. More often than not I will get double locked in by Snowy who seems to think that it is great fun!!

    I know i was absolutely mortified TomsMum and panicked by putting Scooby away and waited for Tom to ring to get the safety covers .I never ever thought they would go for something like this it just goes too show they are like children .

    What a shock for you! You have to watch them closely don't you!? Just like having a crawling baby around I think. When Ruby's out, we're generally in the same room. Sometimes I might be in the dining room briefly but have keep an ear out. Don't trust her for a minute!
