Splat should appreciate this: I keep two parrots, one (Topi) stays outside his cage all day and the other (Jewels) in his cage most of the time. There is a spring loaded bullet latch and a tumbler latch with a key you turn to lock Jewel's cage. If I forget to use the the lock latch (you cannot remove the key when its locked for safety reasons), Topi will almost immediately break into Jewel's cage and steal his food. Some days he gets bored and opens both latches to steal Jewel's food and chase him out of his cage. When I come home I find Jewel's food empty and Jewel's walking around on the railing or if Topi is feeling mean - perched at the kitchen table on the back of chair. I'm going to have to go with a better cage setup and I think I'm going to step up to 304 SS.
