    Turn my back for 10min and she's naughty. Think my brownie points will be gone when the wife gets home. IMG_20180112_113321.jpg

    It's the back of the dining table chair set. Looks like we will be getting wood chairs lol at least they will last a tad longer.

    Any last words? :) We had a new wood dining set two weeks before it was Plum'd!

    Would some arm covers be a temporary fix for now?

    oops. Sophie chewed our wood trim in living room & I thought that was bad (& had to be hastily filled & painted before oh spotted) filler & paint is not going to fix that....
    mind still remember popping out for half hour & returning to discover the dog had eaten a 4 foot by 4 foot section of new cushion floor in kitchen. and she had eaten all the bits so was also hysterical could end up with giant vet bill

    Oh no! They do like to chew anything that is not for them. Good luck telling your wife. We had to parrot proof our entire bungalow when we got Princess Mia.

    Oops! My flock have cost me a small fortune replacing damaged household items. Have to agree with TomsMum I’ve got tons of throws now

    That really cheered me up, we recently got a new settee, George of course had to test it but found out when OH inspected that Dusky had already had a go, in less that 4 week, holes appearing everywhere, must be the mice.

    We had the Home Report done today, still have the silly things in Scotland, he has marked down the parrot damage as "general ware and tare" (apologies for the spelling)

    Buy second hand or from a charity shop then you won't feel quite so bad when it needs replacing again!

    That's nothing, like @JessCheekyMia say's, we had to parrot proof our home.

    I never forget the day we brought Gizzie our Cockatoo home. I was trying to move him from the travel cage to his new cage and he manage to sneak out and he flew up onto the wooden curtain rail and with one bite, he bitten the curtain rail in half with just the one bite as if it was made out of balsa wood :emoji_astonished:

    We had to replace all our curtain rails with metal ones and raise them so high to ensure that the parrots can't perch on them.

    They are always finding new things to chew, but that's parrots for you (and most pets will chew things)
