CAG/TAG Funny stories
Ok, I think we should all have a place to write about some of the funny things our birds do. I saw, on a web page, a list of short stories people wrote in about a funny, or creative things, or just something they wanted to get off their chest; with out have to deal with those people (non-bird owners) who just don't under stand why we find this kind of stuff amusing. Like my mother tells me, "Gosh, you talk about your animals like they are you kids. I'm I ever going to have real grandchildren?"

I can start with one:

I really don't have any good ones yet, although yesterday it was funny when she was sitting on my lap and I was nibbling on some cheese, and sharing some tiny little pieces with her, that she decided that I wasn't fast enough or the pieces weren't big enough, who knows. Anyways she walks up my leg looks at me, cocks her head, I of course ask her what she is doing, she then turns bites into the bag and proceeds to try and drag it away.
Funny little bird

I will try and find that site again, had some funny stuff

Re: CAG/TAG Funny stories
Hahahaha there are some great stories on there,

Right here's one of mine,

When the dogs or cats are outside I ask Bucc where they are, he will then whistle to them (I can't whistle), they come in and he promptly tells them to "get on your bed go on". A few days ago my Dad came to visit, he asked where Jemma was (my daughter) and Bucc starts to whistle calling her "Come on then" , at that moment Jemma came downstairs to which Bucc responded "get on your bed go on"

Of course my Dad thought this was hilarious and burst into laughter, now Bucc will do it and after telling them to get on their bed, he roars with laughter. Now if we are ever out of his sight for a second, he starts all over again. :D

Silly Bird
Ok, this is how weird my bird is...
She has a "toy box" with sticks, blocks, huge wood beads, vine balls thingies and plastic circles from a craft store.
She like to chew all the wood pieces, shread the vine ball, toss the beads and fling the rings.
Anyways the plastic rings are the only this that have color. One of the colors being purple... this may just be me over thinking things but... she only tosses all the purple rings out of her basket. Now the other day I noticed that she likes to eat her pellets by color :rolleyes: leaving the purple pellets in the bowl or on the floor for me to step on :16: she has nothing but purple pellets left in her bowl... silly bird
Maybe she doesn't like the color purple who knows, but I thought it kind of funny and I thought I would share.

Re: Funny stories
That's so funny because Iniko will leave the purple ones in his bowl and toss them around his cage. They must have something against the color purple!

This story happened a little after he was a year old. It was quite obvious that he caught onto the fact that when the cell phones ring we go after them. So while I was at work one day my wife was at home alone. She heard a phone ringing in the living room. When she got to the living room it would stop. She then returns to what she was doing in the bedroom. Well then she hears the phone ringing again and goes running to the living room so she wouldn't miss the call this time. As soon as she gets there there's no more ringing. On the third time she calls me and I answered. "So you have your phone with you because I thought you left it here, it's been ringing somewhere in the living room all morning." I said, "No I have my phone." Then I hear her say, "Oh, Iniko you little monster!"

Re: Funny stories
:18: :18: That is just too funny, Bucc will do the phone ring but will then say Hello, and have a conversation with himself. When I'm on the phone he waits for a while then says "okay bye" if I don't hang up there and then he gets really stressy.:18: :18:

I have been keeping an eye on Bucc and the pellet thing, the won't eat any of the purple ones either, and won't play with any of his purple hoops I've strung on his Java Tree. Hmmmmmmm wonder what it is with Greys and the colour purple.

Re: Funny stories
Yeah, nowaday he will have conversations with himself and you hear both sides. He rings, answers, mumbles, talks, mumbles, okay bye, "CLICK".

It's so funny.

Re: Funny stories
and i thought it was just my grey!!! he does not like his purple pellets either!! that is too funny!!

Re: Funny stories
So someone should tell the pellet people to stop putting in purple ones!
we are really finding it fun how fast our grey learns things - also realizing we should be careful about what is said around him! So far he is meowing and barking - he says hello, hello Tiki, COME-COME-COME (our dog requires multiple calls:) ) and asks for beer! "Tiki beer?"

Re: Funny stories
Einstein likes to call and whistle for our dogs and he seems to know which one is outside. Usually it's Max since he's the one that always wants to go outside (and inside, then out, in, out, in, out...). I'll open the door and immediately he'll whistle or yell "MAX!!!" One day my husband had let Max in and Maia was still out there. He opened the door and Einstein yelled "Maia!" (he yells her name a little quieter, Max doesn't listen very well). Rocky, on the other hand, yells for Rhett. We don't have a dog named Rhett. His previous owners did. He's finally learned Maia's name but still prefers to use Rhett. All people are named Darin too.
