I was sitting on the couch this evening, and my parrot, Apollo, started ringing his bell toy madly. I ignored it for a minute, thinking he was having fun, when he started shrieking, and my mom mentioned he was kicking it. This sounded suspicious, and I looked closely at him, he was indeed kicking the toy, but I noticed one of his toes was stuck in the top of the bell. I called for my dad, but by the time he got his gloves on, and a pair of pliers (he was going to attempt to open the bell up, not take his toe off, in case you were wondering ) Apollo had successfully pulled his toe out. I was worried about it happening again, so I bird proofed his toys. How to protect your small footed birds: 1. Clean toy with a wet cloth 2. Dry the toy so it doesn't rust 3. Take masking tape, and wrap it around the opening on top of the bell. This is hopefully a one time thing, but just in case Apollo tries to kick his toy again, he won't get hurt.
