Re: Funny conure stories

I was leaving for work one morning recently, and accidentally lightly bumped into Babybird's cage (our Green Cheek Conure). It was still dark and it startled poor Babybird and she fell out of her Chube sleeping hut. I shrieked! Turned the light on and said "Babybird I'm sorry!" and went to check her and she climbed up from the bottom of the cage to the low perch and as she was getting up there she said "good birdie" and I laughed and said again "Oh I'm so sorry Babybird!!" and she repeated again "good birdie" ...little ham! Can't believe I did that. But she was totally fine! Pheew!

Big fun in Halo's box after 3 toys were delivered in mail today. Couldn't be bothered with toys, but spent over an hour playing in Halos box.

First Vet Visit

When we got into the examining room and I put Screech on the table in his carry cage, the vet started asking a few questions. Screech looked at me and said, "What's goin on, huh?" The vet had to chuckle.

Re: Funny conure stories

When my CBC, Phoe, goes back to his own cage, his buddy Jax, a GCC, will stand on his cage and scream HEY PHOEPHOE, while stomping his foot. He carries on until Phoe rejoins him.

Re: Funny conure stories

I love stories that really show our birds' "human" side....
Okay, I have to tell you my "Two Feather" Theory about Males. It's a good joke all my friends know. No offense intended... just a bit of fun with the "war of the sexes". Okay, here it is.
I like to tease about the Rickeybird being a typical male, wants more attention than he's willing to give. So when we're snuggling, he "preens" two hairs in my bangs, then bows his head for "his turn". I'll do a generous amount of ruffling and preening and smoothing, then I stop and bow my head. You guessed it... two "feathers" and he's done... his turn again!!!!!!! So when friends or relatives tease a guy about not being fair or such, they remind him of the two-feather-theory!
DISCLAIMER: Okay, I apologize for the sexist joke, and I acknowledge that my opinions are not those of the management here or their sponsors! Peace!

Re: Funny conure stories

So I was sitting on the porch with Screech on my chest and I fell asleep. When I woke up, she was snoring....now I know what I sound like when I'm snoring!

Plummer, too funny!
They hold up a noise-mirror to us, don't they?
I have a hideous whinny-giggle. I hear it often...

Re: Funny conure stories

Sassi likes to sit in her food dish like a nest. She's very content in there. Every so often a foot will pop up holding a pellet. She gives it a head tilt and a look and chucks it overboard. Goof.

Talking Re: Funny conure stories

I decided it was time to do some clicker training with my little cinnamon, Kiwi.

*****
For those of you not familiar with initially "loading" the clicker, the first training session with your pupil should go something like this:

click/click ... give treat
click/click ... give treat
click/click ... give treat

Repeat this process until your "littah grasshoppah" immediately brightens up and looks to you with anticipation for a treat as soon as s/he hears the 'click/click'.

At that point you know the clicker is "loaded" and you are ready to go.

Depending upon the species & breed, it can take quite a few times & sometimes multiple sessions (like horses - lol) before the light goes on and the association is made between the clicker and getting a treat.
*****

Anyway...

This is how my first session went with Kiwi.

Me:
Click/Click ... Sunflower Seed
(I Wait for her to finish eating)
Click/Click ... Sunflower Seed
(I Wait for her to finish eating)
Click/Click ... Sunflower Seed
(I Wait for her to finish eating)
Click/Click ... Sunflower Seed
(I Wait for her to finish eating)
Click/Click ... Sunflower Seed


(I start waiting and ...)


KIWI eagerly eats half of the seed, throws down the rest... looks at me while bobbing her head:

"CLICK CLICK"



[Then I die of laughter!]
________________________


Clicker Loaded!

Oh, and yes... there is MORE.


She LOVES dried Mango pieces. But instead of just offering her mango, I decided to put dried papaya, a few nibbles of popcorn nutriberries, a couple blueberry yogurt covered sunflower seeds, and some peanut pieces into the mix - intending to rotate the treat a bit so she wouldn't know exactly which treat she was going to get (she likes them all).

So this is how it goes down... (Note: I am skipping the parts where I asked her to do something and just showing how she reacted to the click/treat).


Me:
Click/Click Dried Mango Bite
(Kiwi eagerly chows down some Mango deliciousness)

Me:
Click/Click Dried Mango Bite
(Kiwi eagerly chows down some Mango deliciousness)

Me:
Click/Click Dried Papaya Bite
- Kiwi looks at me like, Wait... Whaaaa?

Kiwi:
Rejects the Papaya
"Click/Click"


Me (laughing):
Offers Popcorn Nutriberry


Kiwi:
Picks up Popcorn Nutriberry and tosses it aside.
"Click/Click"


Me (laughing harder):
Offers Blueberry Yogurt Covered Sunflower Seed


Kiwi:
Grabs said Blueberry Yogurt Sunflower Seed and THROWS it DOWN...
Gives me a bit of a glare and ...

"CLICK! CLICK!"


... I gave her the Mango.

Re: Funny conure stories

Why are there only 13 pages on this topic? Seriously, people are holding out on us. Funny. Conure. Pretty cut and dry.
