Well, a few of you have heard the funniest thing Gandalf ever did, but I won't repeat it, as this is a family site! LOL

Hi! I am new here and I actually just got my African Grey Frankie last night! I guess the cutest/most interesting thing he has done so far is......run back and forth on his perch and get really excited over the video game Mario for Wii that my husband was playing! Frankie even started making some different sounds when my husband would get upset or happy because of the game!

Jasper was climbing around on his playtop last night, trying to figure out how to actually get down to the tray where some foot toys were. Somehow he got not stuck but he thought he was, standing on the edge of the tray with his rear end wedged under one of the bridges. He was growling and fussing because *someone* was touching his back and he didn't like it!

Ah, now you've heard the growl, too! You gotta love them for how entertaining they are. Much better than TV!

Last night I am hearing this odd rattling sound and I look up and Jasper has taken his big whiffle ball and placed it up in his playstand food cup. :confused:
Maybe I should get him one of those basketball bird sets.

This story is not about Isoke my CAG but rather my Red-Sided Eclectus , Eggie. I was working on a client of mines Camelot Macaw in my office when I heard a huge ruckus from my bird room. One of my GCC's had latched on to my Ekkies tail feathers and he has only learned to say hello and bye . He was running around the room goin Hello,hello,hello! It was so freakin funny . What so sweet is that he was still gentle with the little conure.

Keep in mind that the Green Cheek was still latched on during all of this. :)

The funniest thing I ever saw a parrot do involves the use of an old English word completely in context. I've never heard him use this particular word before or since--but I'm not his owner. (I have spent many hours in his company, though).

One evening Cody, our friend's Congo African Grey, flew off of his cage, flap-gliding to the floor about ten feet away. Their Border Collie, Ruger, who constantly herds everyone and everything, dashed over toward the bird, presumably to herd him back toward his cage. Cody sharply and clearly called him a "F%(@&*!" Ruger just backad away and gave him some space, and Cody's owner picked him up and put him back on his cage.

This is in a home where that sort of language just isn't used--certainly not when company is present, anyway.

There was a quietly awkward moment, then we all looked at one another and burst out laughing.

We all knew Cody was smart, but wow!

My TAG, Penny, won't eat her purple pellets either! I'm glad to know she isn't the only one who does that.
