Re: Funny conure stories

Roxynoodle, because of your post I am now not afraid to admit to having a foul-mouthed bird. My blue crowned conure Lincoln hated my ex-husband. My ex-husband hated Lincoln too because Lincoln used to scream for me all day long when I was away at work. Well, I guess my ex had enough of the screaming and cursed at Lincoln. I found out when Lincoln cussed me out one night, repeating to me what my ex undoubtedly said to him:

It was birdie bedtime, so the birds were in their cage and covered. I was still up watching TV in the living room adjacent to the bird cage. Lincoln likes his sleep to be nice and quiet. Guess he can dish out quite a bit of noise but cannot take it, because the TV disturbed him. In a low and disgusted-sounding voice he scolded me, "Awwwwww, shut the f*** up."

I apologized to Lincoln for the excessive TV noise, turned the TV volume way down low, and chuckled to myself. I love a bird that can speak his mind!!

Re: Funny conure stories

I know me and friends/relatives are responsible for some of her cuss words, but she also says quite a few that I don't say. Then I realized they were saying them on the soap operas, and I said, ohhhh. But, honestly, this bird just knows it's a bad word and they appeal to her. If she hears it once, she learns it. Now she doesn't sit around cussing all day if anyone is thinking that. Something has cause her to do it. Like a stranger coming up to her cage and sticking their fingers in or playing with her toys.

I also have a friend that absolutely hates the birds and it's so obvious. Well, needless to say, they hate her, too. And that's when i learned the Nanday could say "F*** you." She said it to that friend 3x in a row a couple years ago.

My Blue Crown cussed only once, so really, I'm not a horrible, irresponsible bird owner, lol!

Re: Funny conure stories

Oh, and yes, my ex-fiance is the one who taught her the "F you." As soon as I caught him doing that, I said, no, don't do that. She could outlive me and no one else is going to want her. She's bad enough already with what she's learned.

Well, I thought I had stopped him in time, but nope, like I said, that bird just picks them right up. It wasn't until a few months later that she said it to my friend and I knew she had learned it.

Re: Funny conure stories

Your nanday sounds awesome : ) Did you know that Andrew Jackson's parrot attended his funeral but had to be removed because of its "colorful" language during the service? I guess you and I are in good company, roxynoodle!!

Actually I did, lol! I believe he had a Double Yellow Head Amazon.

Just like with 2 year old children, words that express anger or frustration are just particularly useful for certain, temperamental parrots. If they hear them, they will learn them. But, when you try to teach them "Pretty bird" it might takes months for them to pick it up!

Re: Funny conure stories

Con's cage is in a corner right next to my bedroom window. I figured he'd like to perch in the sun when he can so I put a twistable rope perch on the side of his cage.

I just finished cleaning his cage and since it's such an unusually nice day out for December in Nebraska, I decided to open the window. I doubt Con's ever even smelled fresh air and he really seemed to enjoy the first few seconds in the cool breeze until my three cats crowded him and forced him back to the top of his cage.

Con fluffed up then ran down his cage and onto the perch with his beak wide open and stretched as far as he could to nip at the cat in the window. He was short by about an inch but the cat noticed him and leaned closer to smell the odd feathered thing reaching for him.

Con gave the cat a good tap on the nose with his beak and flapped his wings like he was about to take off. My cat fell from the sill and Con has had the window all to himself for the past ten minutes now.

LOL! I'd take a bird that can curse over a bird that can't anyday !! XD

these stories are hilarious! The worst Loqui says is shut up & my mother was mad that I taught him that. I told her I'm gonna teach him some curse words in Spanish just to make her mad hehe

Re: Funny conure stories

Today, while at my best friend's home, Con became a thief! My best friend had handed me a Girl Scout cookie and I asked to see the box to read the ingredients. While reading, Con scurried down my arm and to the hand holding the cookie. I felt a tug and looked down in time to see her rip off one whole side of the cookie! With her ill gotten gains in beak, she waddled back up my arm to eat on my shoulder. There was lots of squabbling as I tried to take her treat but I finally got what was left of it away and quickly popped it into my mouth. Guess humans aren't the only ones that go crazy for Girl Scout cookies

LOL. Our Guava does this, too. Look away for a sec, and she dives right in, steals whatever you were eating, and dashes!

Re: Funny conure stories

I'm pretty sure Alice farts.

It's only when I hold her on her back and scratch her head. I know it's not beak grinding and, really, I'm fairly confident it's not coming from her mouth. Then, of course, she's ready to poop when she's back upright.
