Raven is getting confused with words

Sponsored Links
He's the one who loves to talk and mimick. He rarely makes natural calls. He has a fairly decent repertoire, but tonight he apparently really feels like saying "good boy". That's what he's been stuck on for hours.

When he knows I listening, he'll say "good?..... good??" As if I'm supposed to fill in the rest. I then say "boy". Sometimes of course I have to say no Raven, you're not being good right now lol.

He's been saying "good boy" himself too if I'm busy and ignoring him. But here's the problem, the past couple weeks he's started to say "goy". I say no Raven, 'goy' is not a word. But I usually ignore him or say "good boy" in hopes he'll stop saying goy. It drives me nuts, sometimes he'll keep saying "goy, goy... Goy" lol. He knows how to say good boy, he probably thinks he's being clever putting the two words together.

Do your birds who talk make up words like this that make no sense?

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

I wish.
Henry's still stuck on sneezing. He can talk up a storm but hubby won't stop laughing at the sneezes. So he goes "Ahhh....Ahhhh....Ahhhhhhh"......waiting for me to then do the 'Chooo'.

And then some times we get "Ahh, Ahhh, Mwah!" Instead of "kiss kiss mwhah."

Also driving me nuts. But I love it

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

I just love what they come out with. My favourite of Plum's is "what's up with you?" This is usually preceded by a very loud sneeze and to be heard when he feels he is being neglected and mummy hasnt come running.

I love it that Raven is a goy, goy LOL

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

Salty says his name as 'alty, having trouble with the S, some times. An he says it with so many different inflections, some times short and even, sometimes it more Saaaaalty, sometimes its with a upward inflection like a school marm.

And his rendering of Little Brown Jug is stiil changing. Sometimes he says "Ha Ha Ha, he he he" and stops. SOmetimes he will say "Ha ha ha ..... Meeee" And then sometimes he will get it right " Ha ha ha, you and me"

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

Lol! I'm loving all of this!

I get a lot of stuff like "Sweet-pea-wheel-eel" or "Hey-I-eel-little" or "Beau-you". Sometimes he starts out quiet and then begins to shout the words!

He also loves prefacing everything with little, so.. "little Beau boy, little peanut, little little little, little peep peep" etc. or "little PEA!"

For a long time "peanut" was pea-NUT CH! Talk about annunciation now it's "peeeea-nut". He doesn't even like peanuts

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

Ha ha, so cute. I would love hear hear his little voice saying that.

My galah says, "I'm a good bad boy." He merged the two statements he hears but it's still really funny. . . and TRUE at times!

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

I only get a screech when you say he's not a good boy especially when he's asked it as a question "bin a good boy?" err no especially as that is why you are sitting in your cage again.

Mind you he bypasses the telling off by saying he wants to go bub-byes when been naughty. Try keeping a straight face to that one? LOL

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

Raven is just speaking in shorthand!
Talli shortens some things, like what are you doing to what doing.
Slater has started saying Hi Little Bird, which we never say to the guys in the big bird room...he had to have picked it up from me talking about the little bird room.

Re: Raven is getting confused with words

Yep, shorthand. If we can make contraction shortcuts, why can't they? "G'oy!" Hahaha! I love it!

Thanks everyone. I enjoyed reading that Raven isn't the only one who does that!
