Stuck on the Seahorse Artifact

So I got to the two pirates at the jungle entrance on Spoon Island, and I eventually got them to go and bury the chest. Much later, I was completely stuck in the game trying to find the Seahorse Artifact, so I consulted the Telltale FAQ; turns out I was supposed to put the pyrite parrot into the chest while the pirates weren't looking, and then dig it up based on the sounds it made. Unfortunately, I didn't think to put the parrot in the chest, and they buried it many overwritten saves ago. What can I do? Am I gonna have to start the game over again, or is there some way around this problem that I'm not seeing?

    You can just talk to them and convince them to return the chest...

    I'm having a problem with this one too... maybe a bug?
    I try to put the parrot in the chest when they turn around, but they just tell me to keep away from the cheast. Very annoying! I'm sure I'm doing the right thing :(

    You should have let them play the "staring contest", then distract them with the "Look, it's Dark Ninja Dave" claim so they could look away long enough for you to put the Pyrite Parrot of Petaluma into the chest.

    I have been looking all islands and whole spoon Island for it...
    I guess, I must be missing something...

    Never Mind, I
    'found' the other islands
