    My Son Edward has a 10 month old Blue Fronted Amazon, Max.

    Max has only been a member of his family for two weeks, but has developed a taste for boys ears.

    In true Blue Peter style, using a cheap hat, a bootlace & 6 wine corks, i made a Parrot distraction hat

    Scott,

    Have you tried plastic milk or pop bottle tops? Quicker to puncture but a bit more of a challenge to destroy. (Oh, and bird safe).

    Great idea, a hat with built in bird toys. I have a clothes protector thingy with budgie type toys on it to protect my clothes from the SH quakers.

    My husband wears a hat with drop down ear warmers when cuddling the Jendays as he gets one on each ear!

    Love the hat - reminds me of a hat my pal Julie wore when we were at TIPS for a parrot behaviour course not so long ago - she wore it in the Amazon aviary and she had loads of amazon pals tugging on the tassels of her hat
