Does your Grey do this?

Does anybody else's grey get down in the corner of their cage or carrier and scratch like a chicken or is it just my little angel

Last time I went to visit Oliver he liked to scratch all over the towel he was on on the table. He kicked toys and food and all kinds of things all over the place. It was pretty funny looking. He would even get on your arm and scratch.



Plus 2 guinea pigs and a lot of chickens

Dusty's favorite thing is to hang upside and yell at his toys. thankfully he only does this sometimes i have not seen him get in the corner of his cage yet and scratch like a chicken. but as silly as he is i imagine i will see it eventually.

He is. Tina, his breeder, is very excited and happy about his progress/improvement.

Jaz likes to go down to the bottom of the cage and just sit in the corner... sometimes he goes into one corner and stairs at the speaker (dark area)

He especially does this when my nan is round... I don't think he likes her

Hermes does this is in food dish, LOL. He steps in the dish and kicks the food out. Maybe he was a Grey in his last life.
