Peck-Man has a level of freedom that most domesticated birds don’t experience. While it has a travel case for emergencies, it doesn’t have a cage - it has an entire room where it sleeps, plays, eats and bathes. During the day, provided we’re home to supervise, Indoor Corvid is allowed to move freely between several rooms at will; to say that the rook’s living a “free-range” lifestyle would be a major understatement.
The bird has managed to integrate itself into almost every aspect of daily/household life - partially because it feels equal to the humans it lives with (and therefore is entitled to human rights and privileges) and partially because we’re weak pushovers who are easily impressed by its remarkable avian intelligence and surprisingly complex personality. Either way, we’ve learned that resisting a corvid’s aggressive sociability is ultimately futile.
