While Charlie Parker isn't aggressive he does like to eat clothes. A lot. Anything with buttons, zips, a hanging thread, tag, or little hole is an invitation to destroy. It was a losing battle trying to train him not to chew, plus it's so damn cute when he climbs inside my shirt or into my pockets, so I throw on old jeans & shirts for playtime and keep an old hand towel around to put over my shoulders and tuck inside my collar when I have a good shirt on. It also helps to distract him with a strip of paper to shred, although the confetti always ends up down my back. :lol:

Is it any particular color of clothes or all of them? One of my aviary irns (Grey male) comes over to me when I have a black shirt on and tries to pull my shirt off, he looks me up and down and then decides to lift the sleeve up and see if I have anything hiding up my arm. But he only comes to me if I have a black shirt on.

Amazon chews on clothes and things he isnt aloud to, i just tap his beak and say no chewing, he knows what he is aloud to chew and not, but i will not aloud the chewing on clothes he has unstitched a good shirt before. Try adn use a word he will learn as a no word, my one is uhhhh NO AMI and he gets the message sometimes i have to use his full name Amazonite and he turns round and says why but gets the message
Sharlene and Amazon
