Re: Things your conure hates

@StarryEyedGirl Um, you forgot the santa cap. hehe. he hates the santa cap.

@kyoto I can't argue with Kyo on the technology. I HATE cell phones. I think it's more the people on them that drive me batty. Especially in stores. I say 'excuse me' politely because they are blocking the aisle and they give me this look like "hey, i'm on the phone" and it's like I disturbed them. It's times like this I wouldn't mind having Skitty with me. LOL

@JamesC Skittles will go off when the phone rings, doorbell or a knock on the door. He will fly over to the perch nearest the door and go on guard. I don't think he hates it necessarily, but is rather 'alerting me'. But pill bottles, he will make 'single cheeps' but I think he's more reacting to the sound than hating it. Anything 'foreign' in my hands is also a no-no. Usually, when I bring something 'new' into the house, I show it to him and tell him it's okay, it tends to work after a few times.

@ceegull I've actually got a video I took last night of Skittles. He was on my desk chewing on a tshirt and once he saw I was recording him he went and did his little 'defense dance'. If I could actually record every silly or adorable thing he has done then I could amuse myself for hours. It's interesting though, there have been quite a few times I've been able to take his picture. Maybe it's because I do that from a distance?

Re: Things your conure hates

Aviator harness
My daughter's insulin pump

I can't think of anything else. He's still young so I am sure other things will come up that he hates.

GCC hates being touched when eating his daily serving of seeds. He will lift wings and peck hard making some angry sounds. They must be so delicious.

My husband..LOL

There are things that he is unsure of, so he just avoids them all together.

Re: Things your conure hates

@Takontiki Insulin pump? LOL. They pick the weirdest things to pitch a fit over. Some things that you'd think they will hate, they either love or aren't bothered by and then some things you would think they'd be okay with are simply evil and unwelcome.

LOL. I honestly think he is somewhat jealous of it because whenever its out we give it our utmost attention (after all it is a medical device and we have to ensure we are giving proper doses of insulin). Tiki doesn't understand why our attention wanes from him to the pump when it's not even cute.

Re: Things your conure hates

I assume it's an internal one? That's what my mom has. She has to carefully calculate hers as well. Unfortunately, she doesn't eat properly and just relies on the pump to counteract her high blood sugar.

But that does make sense though. The more I concentrate on something other than Skittles, the more he acts up. My neighbor thinks its funny whenever we are on the phone and I start reprimanding him. She'll go "what's he doing?" and when I tell her, she chuckles. I'm sure for some people it sounds cute and funny. But it gets old. Don't get me wrong, a sun conure is my ideal pet. I wanted a bird I wouldn't get bored with.

I love Peaches to death, but she's always so angelic. Never bites, never does anything wrong or get into anything she shouldn't. Skittles more than makes up for it though.
