If these are not near you call them, they may know of a group nearer to you.

Please do not put them outside. They will die.

You have put a great deal into these birds. Maybe you just need some new toys. What kind do they have? Sometimes just moving the toys around makes a difference. Rearrange the cage.

I am not letting them go, I just think they want to fly outside, the only toy they play with is this one with strings they can pull on. Lately, they've been eating their perches (wood,rope) and they finally started using the cuttlebone too. Is it normal they're pecking at their perches, because the wood is coming off and they're tangling up the rope perch. Also they've been rubbing their face on their ladder and perches, is it just some bird thing or is something wrong because Paris never did this before

It all sounds like pretty normal bird behavior. It also sounds like you might need some new perches. You really have to keep an eye on the string toys. Once they start getting to chewed up you need to remove them as they become dangerous. They could get tangled in the strings, expose toxic metals etc. The same goes for the wood perches.

Sounds like your keets are in major chew mode. I recently purchased a container of live wheatgrass and my two have been loving tearing it apart. Give them some flavored mineral blocks in addition to the cuttlebone.

I'm so glad ( and know the rest of the forum is too) that you are not going to release your birds outside. :-)

Give them more chewing options/ripping apart options.

Maybe a dish of their favorite toys? Mine like to just spend the day throwing everything out. I pick it up and give to them the next day!

Hope this helps!

they maybe also coming into a moult where they are rubbing their heads on ladders etc...they may have the moult itches..giggle..even tho you may not see anything yet ..it could be starting..also they do that to clean their beaks..they dont have napkins but probably would love one just to chew up..
