Mine does the same thing! His cage was also sold as a cockatiel cage,
but yet he can manage to get his head between the bars. He doesn't do
this often. I think he only does it when he's in his mood to tease me
because he knows I make a big deal out of it. He'll only do it maybe
twice in a row until I see him do it, than I start yelling at him. I
guess it's his way of getting my attention. He always gets his head out
between the bars though - he's never had a problem releasing himself. I
tried using a cage with bars that are closer together, but he seems to
manage to get his wings caught in between the bars! He likes to spread
his wings sometimes.
Yes! You are right about anything can go wrong, and sometimes it usually
