Funny conure stories
This is a place to write about some of the funny things our birds do. You know those silly or ingenious things our birds do that make us laugh or smile that the non-bird lovers in our lives don’t seem to understand why we find it so amusing.

Here are some examples

There will be a place to write about these moments at the top of each of the breed forums. So get those stories rolling…. Oh yeah, stories that have pictures always gets a couple extra brownie points.

Chilis First Night
Here is alittle background on how I got chili. I have always been a parrot freak I love them and it is my mom who got me started. My husband had promised me a sun conure for about four years and I finally got him looking into it. We found a local breader who was just starting to wean his babies and we had the first pick out of four. He send me pictures of these four little dander feathered babies and chili stole my heart with his cute little face.I was heart broken to learn that I would have to wait 3 weeks (I think) for my baby so in mean time I fixed up his house and went toy crazy. I finally gave in and called the breeder and asked if I could take over the weaning because I just can't stand waiting so after two hours of waiting to hear back I think I paced and when he finally called back his wife and him had agreed they where becoming to attached and since I knew what I was doing Chili could come home.

My husband and I took a four hour drive to pick him up when we got there both him and his wife said Chili can't fly and hasn't even tried so you don't have to worry while your doing the weaning. I said okie dokie and that night during a feeding chili took off from the table straight up hitting his head on the ceiling and crashing down to my hands I felt so bad but now as I watch him fly around his birdie room when its his play time I laugh thinking about his first few flying crashing days

Re: Funny conure stories
I call this story "I fought the ball and the ball won." Bane the Sun Conure in my avatar loves to play ball on his back. Sometimes he will be on his back holding two balls as though he can juggle. In his cage he has 2 ladders and 2 shelves. He was on his back playing with the ball then went on the ladder that is about 4 inches wide and played ball on his back on there he got so involved in his playing that he just rolled off the ladder then walked over to the side of the cage where I was and look at me as if he wanted to know what the heck just happened. It was soooo funny and the best part is I caught most of it on video.

I have tried to upload it but unfortunately I live in the boonies and still can only get dialup so it wont upload. Keeps timing out. As soon as I can get to a computer with high speed I am going to upload it.

attacking bird please help
ok I bought my nanday conure 1 years ago out the paper for my 4 year old daughter birthday present who is 5 now. The Nanday lived with a man all her life (4 years),and now that she is at my house she will bite everybody BUT my husband. Any other male who tries to touch her she will try and bite. Our fingers can go NOWHERES near the cage or she will bite down forcefully. We let her out ONCE to fly around the house , she landed on my shoulder and started attacking my ear. Nobody handles her BUT MY HUSBAND , they have a bond , she whisles when he does, she bobs her head when he does , she makes water noises when he drinks from cups , he is the only one who can clean her cage and interact with her...I really wanted her as a FAMILY PET ,any advice as to how to start "taming" her??? We will keep her regardless , but it would be soooo much nicer if she was a sweet loveable bird!

Re: Funny conure stories
Try posting this in the behavioral section.
You'll get more responses and help.
Some birds are like this though, and bond to one person. This is some birds nature and cannot be fully trained out.
It will take a while to train the bird - he has to gain a lot of trust.

Re: Funny conure stories
One day I am sitting at the kitchen table with the laptop and skittles, my sun conure, flys over and lands on the back, I leaned close and moved my head to the side and make a woosh noise, he apparently thought this was neat so he copied me, over and over, it was really cute, but now when he does it, he sets the beat lol if you dont follow him he wont do it at all. lol
My daughter recorded it and put music to it :):orange:
I will try to post the video again later, wouldnt let me do it right now.

Re: Funny conure stories
I brought Yoshi, my Pearly Conure, home yesterday, after seeing him in the store a couple of months ago and just falling in love with him. I have read online that a move to a new home is traumatizing to a bird and that you should put him in the cage and leave him alone for a few days while he settles in. Not this guy! He wants my attention all the time, and has even won the cat over! They kissed (nose to beak), and he loves to preen my hair and give me kisses, even trying to slip me his tongue. But the funniest thing he's done so far was pick my nose! Ewww! :p
