    Don't ! They get into EVERYTHING!!!!!! They knock on my sliding glass door .....then when I come to see who it is, they take off running and jumping like two juvenile delinquents. They like to jump up on the rocking chairs and pretend they are wood peckers. They like to paint - I left out a gallon of paint on the back porch and they flipped off the lid, flung paint everywhere, took off with the paint roller and tray...... i know who did it as their beak was blue! You can't leave a garbage bag for a second as you are picking up all the things they have drug out into the yard, as they will rip open the bag and reposition everything again all over. You will think you are going crazy, as anything you sit down will disappear. When you are trying to sleep they will find the loudest things that make noise and play with them...... they like to balance on broom or tool handles..... they like to find things, throw it on the ground, peck it violently with their beaks, dance around it in a fast circle a few times, jump in the air and do it again...... such trouble makers. But they are a hoot.....

    Note Blue beak on the 2nd one............... [​IMG]
