Re: Funny stories

HAHA it is spooky when birds pick up sounds like that. I can't tell now if its my tiel or my ekkie calling me, because my ekkie has my tiels call down to an art form.

Thanks for sharing

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
Oh well you have just confirmed why you are called "madparrotwoman"
You true colours were going to come out eventually loL

It is amazing, from the tone right down to the "voice".

Often Mishka calls me, Mom Mommy and sounds like one of my guys...
That confuses me Lol........ then I realize they are not at home

Re: Funny stories

We went hiking this morning. The starting point was quite tough because it starts with steep slopes. After climbing the slopes, I took a break waiting for my wife to catch up. A man was coming down from the opposite direction. He saw me and Cocoa. He asked, " you have a bird on your shoulder. what bird is that?" I replied, " it's an eagle." He asked again, "how long have you been keeping this EAGLE? Hahaha! He really believes Cocoa is an eagle.

Re: Funny stories

Here's a funny thing that my previous conure used to do: First he would take one small piece of those colored pellets with artificial coloring and then walk slowly accross his whol cage to the water dish which was on the other side. Then he'd leave it there and walk back accross his cage to his little toy that was his bed. Then after about 20 seconds he'd get up and walk accross the cage again and then get the soaked pellet out of his water and put it in his mouth and then go back to his bed. Then he would take his little toy or bed and drag it to where he was hidden from everyone and eat it. Lol, then right after he eats it he repeats!!!!!

That's all for now, i'll try to think of some stories that my birds that i have now do.

Re: Funny stories

My budgies fight over possesion of my hand! Lexi or Thimble usually win while Marigold just sits there ( fatty ) looking. Marigold is overweight and I have been trying to get her to lose some ( no results ). The only time she has ever been at a nice weight was when she had 4 chicks to feed.

Re: Funny stories

I went hiking again this morning, this time only Cocoa and I as my wife had to go to the wet market. I met another hiker when I was taking a break.
He asked if Cocoa was a parrot. He then asked if I had an eagle which he saw me carry around in the street. He didn't know Cocoa was the eagle he saw in the street.

You are going to have some very confused people in your area.

Talking Funny stories

My TAG Furby has some interesting things he does. When I give him a cracker he takes it and climbs back inside of his cage. He dips it in his water. Reminds me of a person dipping their donut in their coffee.
We'll be sitting in the tv room watching a movie, he'll me sitting on the arm of my chair. Furby will start washing my left hand. I think that's what he's doing. He'll pick up every finger up one at a time and preen it. If my nails are too long he'll try to trim them. Furb gets his beak under my nail, and ouch.
