Re: Funny conure stories

Cuddles, my Cockatiel, loves to sing. One time he was singing, nice and loud. Munchie walked over to the closest side of her cage to his, and SCREAMED. Just once, but very loud. Cuddles quickly went silent, haha. She must not like his voice!

We will keep her regardless , but it would be soooo much nicer if she was a sweet loveable bird!
This is not the thread for this, but at the risk of hijacking this thread, I will respond.

Conures are not FAMILY PETS. They are single person birds meaning they bond with one person, animal or object. That this bird has chosen your husband as a mate is no surprise, especially considering its previous experience was with a male.

Additionally, you must be careful rehoming any bird. Not to be insulting, but research would have prepared you for this. Birds are not domesticated animals with particular instincts bred out and specific behaviors bred in.

Conures, especially aratingas can be difficult. Please feel free to ask for help and support.

Re: Funny conure stories

My new baby, Bongo, has been surprising me every day with the novelty of young parrot antics. (She's four years old, and to me who is used to being around birds in their teens and twenties, she's soooooo young!!)

Yesterday was a really funny one.

She was sitting on her rope perch outside her cage, then looked at me, and walked sideways to a wooden bead that had previosuly been ignored, sitting atop the cage.

She picked it up in her beak, waddled back to her spot, then transferred it from beak to foot.

Cue Bongo looking down at the bead, then at me, then still staring at me, abruptly stuck her leg waaaaaaaaaaay out - and began waving it back and forth slowly!

She waved it about 15-20 times, I was laughing so hard I couldn't even think to grab my clicker and try to capture the action with a command to maybe get lucky and start teaching her to do it as a trick.

So. Cuuuute!!

Re: Funny conure stories

We had a repairman over to fix a kitchen appliance. He claimed to be a bird lover, always had birds himself, he's great with birds, etc.

Okay, well, since he's okay with birds, there's no need for me to keep them locked in their cage while he's working, right?
I open the cage, the smallest of my two conures takes off at full speed towards the repairman, lands on his shoulder, ****s on his shoulder and flies straight back to the cage.

I was at a loss for words and didn't have the heart to tell the guy he had a bird-**** streak from his shoulder to his lower back.

Re: Funny conure stories

When my White-eyed escaped it took a while until we found him. He was over a roof of a small building.

We tried calling him but he was frozen there. While we were calling one neighbor showed up on her window and asked.

- Is it yours?
- Yeah
- All three of them?
- What? Three? Only him
- There was two others with him a while ago. I thought that he was a cub and was learning to fly.

We saw that couple passing towards us while we are trying to find him. It's funny because he started to make a cell phone sound that only he knows how to do and that's how we found him. I guess that the wildlings gave him a tip.

Re: attacking bird please help

Conures are not FAMILY PETS. They are single person birds meaning they bond with one person, animal or object.

This doesn't seem to be the case with golden (AKA Queen of Bavaria) conures--probably because they nest and breed in family groups. Numerous keepers of goldens will attest to this. But of course, they are not Aratingas (and based on recent genetic studies are gradually being pushed toward the macaw group).
