Re: Funny stories

Greys can be little stinkers thats for sure.

Mine likes to call the dog over to the kitchen island (unfortunately that is where one of his tree gyms is at, his choice, not mine) and/or he will wait for the dog to come over and get some food or water and then BAMMMM drop a toy on the dog and then bark at her. The Little stinkpot.

Re: Funny stories

Hi, I'm a new member and this is my 1st post. Very interesting that several of you mention that your bird does not like the purple ones. My grey doesn't like them either, but sometimes changes his mind and eats them. He seems to eat his food by colors. He likes the green and yellow most,then the red, orange, and tosses out the purple. He is 4 yrs old and has a hugh vocabulary.

Re: Funny stories

Color Preferences in birds is a very interesting topic. I have a grey too and she seems to prefer the color yellow in the toys. I do not purchase colored pellets or other foods. She really lilked the yellow comfy corner I put in the cage but had to remove as she was working on the tie strings a little too agressively. I know the famous grey Alex could tell the difference in colors and did know purple.

Re: Funny stories

Of course they can tell the difference in colors. They have better color vision than we do.

Re: Funny stories

Yes birds eyes are very keen and can tell color differences. I was aiming more to color preferences.

Re: Funny stories

How they make us laugh !!!
Whenever Mishka walks towards the couch to bite it I say Oh stop it don't do that
Yesterday I was in the kitchen cooking, she was in the lounge on her playpen.
We were busy chatting away, then she become very quiet.
I walked into the lounge, she had stepped off her playpen and was nearby the couch, I said what are you doing?
She replied oh stop it don't do that, don't do that mommy !!!
It was hilarious
Take care

Re: Funny stories

I had my grey about a year when I decided to run to the gas station one night so I wouldn't have to stop in the morning. I did not know yet that parrots NEED to be on their cage or at least see it when it gets dark. I only had to go about 10 blocks to the gas station and Corky was really freaking out, peeping, flapping, and getting on top of my head (ouch!). Just as I got to the station a cop pulls up behind me because I was driving funny and when he walked up to the window and saw me with my hair all wild from Corky and him on my head..he just said never mind and walked away. I laughed all the way home. Figure he didn't know how to write it up, huh? I didn't take my babies out after dark after that, poor baby. We've travelled with them, but always cover their portable cages at dusk. Then they are okay.

Re: Funny stories

Who is calling who ???
Mishka my AG 2 years old imitates my voice down to a T now.
When my sons are home she calls them Sean come here please SEAN
Sean comes into my office mom you called?.
Told him I did not, he swears that I did.
Hilarious at first !!!!
Now when I call my guys, they ignore me.
LoL, at least Mishka does not ignore me.
Take care

Re: Funny stories

I had to share this, it took me by surprise this morning lol.

Next door has a little dog - like the dog "nipper" in the HMV slogan listening to the old fashioned gramaphone. Anyway this dog is often in his garden next door and I guess he barks though it's not the kind of bark you notice as not often he does bark and it's low pitched. This morning after the birds had been given their breakfast I was sitting here with a cuppa and I heard next door's dog bark his usual low quietish bark and just happened to look up and there was Beau with his beak moving, yes you guessed it the dog was nowhere to be seen! So funny how close to the real thing it is lol
