Post Things your conure hates

Alright! This should be a fun list. Let's see how much our conure's have (or not have) in common. I'll start!


Watering can
Cellphone
CDs and DVDs
Spray bottles
White socks
Vacuum cleaner
Shoe tree (goes inside shoes)
Aviator harness
Washing my drinking glass in the sink
Picking my nose (oh he hates this)


Your turn!

Re: Things your conure hates

Well, Skittles arch nemesis is the tape measure, hands down. Here are the rest, in order.

Anyone who comes near me
Peaches (my cockatiel)
Spray bottles
CDs/DVDs

Oh, and feet.

Re: Things your conure hates

How odd that both Boomer and Skittle hate CDs and DVDs. Must be a conure thing. The spray bottles are sort of my fault. Back when I didn't know any better (and thanks to a misleading online article), I briefly used it as a training implement. Not proud of it It never worked anyway and he ended up hating it. Good thing he still adores water.

Re: Things your conure hates

Same thing here. I used it for that same reason. A friend of mine gave me the idea, she used to spray her cat. Using fear as a training tactic never works. I know that now as well. I've learned the best training methods are setting limits, consistency and positive reinforcement.

I think the CDs and DVDs are a conure thing. It's mostly DVDs to be honest, and video games. I rarely listen to CDs. All my music is on my PC.

Re: Things your conure hates

Yup video game CDs! I would get bitten the moment I crack open a video game case. He is fine with me playing, he just hates the case and the CDs lol!

Re: Things your conure hates

Yea, its when I go to open the case and take the disc out, that's when he throws a fit. He goes on alert when I grab the case then throws his tantrum.

I do have to say though his most annoying habit is that whenever I vaccuum - right after I finish, he goes over to his cage and starts to throw things on the floor. Chewed up paper, discarded food etc. So I've given up vaccuuming when he's out of his cage. It's pointless.

Re: Things your conure hates

My favourite thing ever-

I bought Kyo a toy crock (the shoe) that's about an inch big. She absolutely DESPISES it. I just say she has good fashion sense :P

Other than that, there aren't a lot of things she hates. Only technology. She wants all cell phones and cameras to die.. and she may or may not hate my husband, we haven't figured that strange relationship out yet.

Re: Things your conure hates

In order:
- Pill bottles that rattle will get poofed head feathers, lunging and lots of squawking every time. Originally just Tootsie but Rosco picked it up off of her.
- Unfamiliar objects in my hands.
- Doorbell.
- Me talking to my phone.
- My phone ringing.
- Not getting some of whatever it is I am eating. Especially if they see Sidney get a bite.
