Re: Funny conure stories

we have several funny birds. i would have to say that the funniest thing so far is something my baby gcc does. we havent had him/her very long and last night when i was watching the football game with my husband we heard this weird laughing noise. at first we thought it was one of the neighbors downstairs,but my husband noticed they were gone. so we just thought we heard things. well we sat down and watched the game again and it started up again. so my husband opened the door to the bird room and there was the baby gcc(11 weeks old) laughing so loud and then said ohhhhhhhhhh babbyyyyyyyyy. now like i said we have funny birds like our cockatiels but that has got to be the funniest thing that any of the birds have ever done.

Re: Funny conure stories

My silly Sun conure knows the difference between his name and the cats names. So if he's sitting on me or my husband and we call one of the cats he will start pulling on our lip with his beak. But if you say his name after calling the cats then he will rub his beak on our lip instead. He also seems to know the differnce between the cats names and the kids names because calling the kids names doesn't even phase him.

Re: Funny conure stories

My dusky conure, Dusty doesn't quite trust anything new. We had a bunch of bird toys and perches go on sale at my job so i decided to buy dusty all new toys being that he's had the same toys for so long and i felt bad about not giving him new enrichment. So i bought all these toys and such and i come home clean them and then place one toy in his cage. He freaks out by climbing to the uppermost corner of his cage and screams. I opened his cage door and he immediately flew out at me. I tried to put him near the toy and he freaked out again. So i removed the toy and added another new one...again he freaked out. Each of the new toys i bought him he freaked out on.

I have now learned that the only way to get him to accept new things in his cage is to first attach them to his play stand outside of his cage. He generally likes them better that way. When he becomes comfortable with the new toys then i move them to his cage.

Re: Funny conure stories

My Jenday, Mango, loves crawling into tight spaces. So I always put empty paper bags, or dog food bags in his cage. He loves to bite holes in those and move them from one side of the cage to the other. The peekaboo game is his favorite too, he will run in and out of those bags. He either sleeps in his hammock in the top of his cage or on the bottom in a bag.

Mango sounds so cute, wish I could see the peekaboo game.
Thank goodness Mango is a bird, and not human, otherwise he would be mistaken for a hobo LoL
Thanks for sharing, love all the stories.

Re: Funny conure stories

I LOVE conures! I have had much smaller birds all my life..and when in undergrad, I worked as "bird maintenance" girl at a local pet shop. One day, an elderly man comes in for a bird wing trim carrying a shoebox (lovely). There was the cutest, feather-picker (blue-crowned conure) I had ever seen! The man said his son had gone to college 8 years ago and always made excuses about not coming back for her, and he and his wife wanted a better home for her. So Nanuk became one of my first rescues!
It took 3 years to socialize her to were I could pet her and she would play with toys. My boyfriend (now husband) at the time moved in, and she IMMEDIATELY loved him (and totally abandoned me). I knew he was perfect for me b/c he didn't shy away from her beak lunged (like most) and he would play with her and she would "guard" him from the dog while he napped.
She came so much more out of her shell when a male figure was around!
My husband, though, didn't have as much free time as I did, and she grew lonely when she didn't want me to be her friend anymore.
I worried so much about her when I went to vet school, b/c I would have even less time.
BUT, she latched onto one of my male friends who fell in love with her, and now she enjoys an only pet (her) household with all the attn she deserves! We still miss her, though...but I've seen how happy she is...and I can't compete with that.
gotta lot conures!

Re: Funny conure stories

As much as we love our birds, their happiness must come first. No matter how heartbroken and sad we are.
Having seen how happy she is with her new guardian, you have peace of mind.
Sure in her own way, she is grateful and thankful, by not being neglected, due to circumstances.
I salute you !!!!

Re: Funny conure stories

My GCC Hiroshi does this thing that I call "Tellin his side of the story".

I'll be sitting with my knees up playing with him or talking to him and then suddenly he runs up to the top of my knee and squabbles all these different sounds, shakes his head a bit, fluffs his feathers and "tells his side of the story" lol.

It's adorable and pretty funny too. I swear he doesn't realize how small and cute he looks when hes protesting.

Re: Funny conure stories

I have a couple stories:

(here's a short one) One day, while me and my sister were fighting about who know what, we suddenly heard this loud "SSSSSHHHHHHHHH", so we both look at our mom, who was watching t.v. and found out she said nothing. so we kept fighting and we here it again, "SSSSSSHHHHHHH" so we stop, and wait for a second and about a minute later after thinking it was outside, I look at kiwi, and he says "SSSSHHH" it was Hilarious!!!!

Here's the other story:

Well, Kiwi LOVES attention (as do most birds), but he'll do some weird things to get it. So, 1 day while flipping through channels, we pass this "old school" rap music channel, as soon as we change it, kiwi shreaks, so we decide to change it back for a second. After about 10 seconds, all you here is "Dance, dance, dance", so we look at kiwi, and all you see it kiwi squaking away, singing "dance, dance, dance" moving his whole body around, bobbing his head... We NEVER taught him this, it was just out of the blue. So know, when he wants attention, he'll start singing and dancing!!! IT is SOOO CUTE!!! I wish i could get a video, but he's really camera shy (well, he loves the camera, just doesn't like the video camera)...
