i have two that free fly, training was easy a cyclone ripped up the aviary twice and lost all my eccies bar my main breeders, they just stayed close by in tree's until i came out the female came down as soon as i called her the male decided to fly around for a few hours and watch me mow 12 arcers fly from one side of the propery to the other as i drove the mower, then once i finished i called he flew down that happened twice and now if they want to go out im fine with it, as they come when i call.

Re: Funny eclectus stories

This one happened last week. I was teaching Echo a new trick (color differentiation) and said "Good Boy" then gave him a Pine Nut... I then went to pick him up as he had taken the Pine Nut, and without warning he places the Pine Nut back in my hand says unmistakeable "Good Boy" for first time then looks up at me half curious what to do.

Evidently - Parrots can train people too...

Re: Funny eclectus stories

My baby Kozmo often holds his food with hi feet when he eats, something most eclectus don't do. It's really cute. He's also been talking since he was seven months old. Still unbelievably clumsy. Favorite words are "I love you" "Tickle-tickle-tickle" and "Mama".

Re: Funny eclectus stories

Our ecckie has open cage policy. Well now he roams the house. One day I couldn't find him. He was looking at me from the window in our back room.

He also has a very large vocabulary. Everything I say he learns it.

One day I took him into my make up counter where he sits with me. He started chewing on my cord and I kept saying 'Hey No'.

So not long after that my husband had just woken got his coffee and on his computer. Nice & quite morning..... Until he heard the bird 'Hey No, Hey No', he surprised him because he wasn't aware that he was on the floor next to him and chewing on his computer cord.

Re: Funny eclectus stories

Pebbles teaches Gizmo:

So I have 2 Eclectus Parrots, a male about 1 1/2 who we adopted at about 9months and a female 3 years who we recently were shocked to see for sale at a poultry auction.

We have tried to set the two cages up with similar toys. Yesterday I found Pebbles rubber treat ball (the ones with the hexagon holes), at the bottom of the cage. This isn't a big surprise as they are both experts at unscrewing the loops, but when I looked closer, I found she had chewed right through the silicon rubber. I thought cheeky girl, Gizmo has never done that, and he has had it for about 9 months.

This morning what do I find, Gizmo's ball at the bottom of the cage, and he has chewed through the rubber.

Now Gizmo teaches Pebbles:

Gizmo and Pebbles live side by side in there own cages with about a 9 inch separation. Pebbles does not seem to have been handled much, and I am trying to get that under control before I allow them to meet each other outside the cage (so I can separate them if things get out of hand).

I was preparing some apples for them this morning, Gizmo was on my shoulder, and after stealing a piece, he flew back to the top of his cage. He knows he is not allowed on Pebbles cage. I had one of those "it's too quiet moments" and I turned to check, to find Pebbles had climbed to the top of the inside of her cage, and Gizmo had jumped across and they were checking each other out. I quickly made my way to take Gizmo off the cage, but before I got there, Pebbles had decided to investigate Gizmo's foot with her beak. Gizmo quickly moved his foot, and to my surprise said "No" (it took all my energy not to burst out laughing).

Cheers,

Camo

Re: Funny eclectus stories

My parents look after Tequila when my husband go away on holidays. My husband has taught our dog french commands, which my family think is funny. So while my parents were looking after my parrot they asked her:
"Do you speak French?" and she replied straight away....
"F**k off".
I have never taught my bird to swear!!! She must have picked it up from the other owner.

Perfect timing bird!!!!

I live in an apartment building next to the park on the third floor. Its great for Gizmo as he is up high in the trees, next to the window (but he hates the seagulls!!) and his new favourite activity when hes not trying to hump me is to yell various phrases out the window. I didnt quite realise how enthusiastic I was until a few days ago.
We have a 'homeless' guy who lives under our building on the edge of the park. He is a fantastic asset for the place, he looks after all the cars and is the go-to guy for ANYTHING happening around here. He may live in a plywood box but he has permission from the building owners and I like having him around (he lives right under my place) becuase my fiancee is always away at sea.
I take him a roast dinner once a week and books when im done with them.

So, this guy (Ian), is a great guy. My fiance goes down and has a beer with him whenever he is home to say thanks for keeping an eye on me. Anyways, last few times ive seen Ian he was acting really weird. Looking at me sideways and apologising for nothing.

It wasnt till the fiancee went down and spoke to him that we realised that Ian didnt know about my bird, who has been gleefully watching ian in his deckchair in the sun, yelling out the window while im at uni "HELLO DARLING!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING??? NAUGHTY BOY. NOOOOOO MUMMY DOESNT LIKE THAT. BEDTIME!!!!"

hahahahhaha. The worst thing is, IAn is such a respectful guy, whenever the bird told him to go to bed, off he went!!!! No more sunbathing for IAn! He thought it was me ... my boy talks in my voice =)

Second story is yesterday I was vacuuming (which usually provokes an ENTHUSIASTIC vocalising from the boy. Anyways i finished and there was conspicuous silence.....then i heard a disembodied voice.....
I had propped the front door open and ventured out into the hall and there was my boy, knocking on the neighbours front door with his beak, saying "HELLO!! What are you DOING???? HAHAhaHAHHaHHAhhAHHahHAH mother f***&&^^^eeeeeeeeer (dont ask who taught him that.....)

My poor neighbours were terrified!!! Though on the plus side its the first they knew of a parrot living next door - but you should have seen the guys face when he opened the door, all amped up to deal with the maniac knocking on his door. PRICELESS.

Im constantly astounded by how much joy my boy gives me. Im so lucky to be his parront!!


ROTFLMAO!!!! I had to revive this post. Priceless!!!!
