Super aggressive on top of cage?
So I adopted a 4 year old Macaw yesterday after being out several times to meet him. I started noticing at their house that he gets very territorial and aggressive when he's on top of his 7 foot cage. It's the kind with the 3 half-moons shapes that is tallest in the middle.
When he was out today-any time he's taller than you he get's very full of himself and refuses to go back into the cage.
I was wondering if there is anyway to curb this behavior, or if there is something I can get that's slippery so he won't want to go up there? Maybe those linolium sticky squares or something.? This is definitely NOT a problem I want to deal with serveral times a day.
I'm at a loss, have any of you ever dealt with this or have any ideas that would be greatly appreciated (and no, treats don't even work. He's a very quick snatcher and grabs the snack (which is what she told me to do-lure him into the cage with some bread), then laughs, and eats it up top. Lil buggar =P
