Wink What does your bird love/hate? :)

Wasn't sure where I would put this.

Anyway what does your fids love/hate? Or what does it love to do?
Do they love/hate a certain food? A certain person? A certain thing?

Yuki loves to try and chew of my finger nails like a nail clipper would do. She also hates anyone's right thumb. Not the left thumb only the right.

Alex loves to talk to the cat. They meow at each other all the time. Every time he hears the cat meowing and can see her. He meows back. I try to get a video of it but he goes quite and so does the cat. It makes me wonder what are they planning?
Alex hates this monkey soft/plush toy.

Slushy my lovebird loves to pull my keyboard keys off. My other birds haven't tried it or don't look interested in doing so. But it seems to be Slushy's number 1 goal.

Flynn just loves to follow the other birds around. He would feed them, preen them and so on. Atm he is keen on being with Alex.

Those are just a few things my fids do.
There are more. But I can't just think of any on the spot.

Re: What does your bird love/hate? :)

Well , Crackers my GCC is obsessed with the keys on my keyboard .....She can pop them off in nothing flat. She absolutely hates her flight suit....SO , I lay the flight suit on my keyboard and she stays away...lol Also, if you get a glass of water, she thinks she needs to bathe in it . So you have to keep your glass covered so you don"t get bird scrubies in your water.
She also adores being with me or my kids , Just sitting on our shoulders or head , all day is we would let her : )
Cosmo , my TAG loves head scritches , chewing on my couch and barking with the dogs and he also loves for crackers to preen his neck. He hates for me to spray him with water when it's bath time and he hates his flight suit too!
I can't imagine my life without these feathered kids : )

They sound lovely.
I just love how Crackers tries to bathe in your glass of water.
Sounds so cute

Chewing on the couch is a favorite of all my fids. Flynn and Slushy love scritches.
Slushy my lovebird loves children, he is so well behaved.
He really loves to play with them, he also gives them kisses and tries to play with their teeth.

I also can't imagine my life without my fids.

Re: What does your bird love/hate? :)

My Eccie LOVES to tap on things then listen to the noise. In particular a black champagne flute. He is also obsessed with spiral pasta. I mean obsessed. He loves showers and the hairdryer. And also our red laundry bucket.
He has a peculiar fondness for my bras. I give him my old ones and it keeps him entertained for hours!

He HATES with a passion borne in the seventh circle of hell anything fluffy. He will spend hours growling and attacking and im sure in his mind killing any soft toy, towel, microfibre cloth that dares to usurp into his territory (which is our whole house haha).

Oh Ash alexs are lovely birds arent they? Mine was an amazing talker. Nice to see another kiwi here!!

p.s. DO you find it funny so many of these americans call their birds kiwi? Its probably because they call kiwifruit kiwis and lots of birds are green, but it stioll makes me smile. If only they knew haha

Re: What does your bird love/hate? :)

Sassy loves to be nosey.. If someone is cooking, she knows it. If she sees the food she wants it. Spoiled rotten.. lol She also likes a game of Inside the Shirt. I pull a big T shirt over my head, while she is on my leg. I than lift the other end near my belly and say, Here Sassy... She crawls off my leg and inside my shirt. I pet her wings and she gets excited. Than she crawls up to my collar and comes out.

What Sassy hates is being left out at meal time. I mean, she looks forward to eating noodles, cheese, cereal, bread, beans, a cracker, vegies, ect.. That really makes her day, to be fed when we eat. Being left out causes depressed feelings.

My Alex's LOVE spiral pasta. They will do anything for them. I taught Alex a few tricks and when he sees me with the pasta he goes nuts. He does all his little tricks

All of mine hate the shower, they prefer the hose, a spray bath or just there water bowl.

That's how Alex acts around that monkey toy. He doesn't mind others. He just hates that monkey with a passion.

Yes I find that Alexs are very lovely, beautiful and smart. Alex is becoming a very good talker. They are VERY clear talkers. I also find it funny americans calling their birds kiwi.

I also think its great to see another kiwi here

Sassy sounds like a real character.
Btw she is beautiful.

Re: What does your bird love/hate? :)

Well since I have only had her two weeks I am still in the honeymoon phase with bella my red rump parakeet. but so far she loves to hang out with the computer speaker and make some really different calls that are apparently only used during her "speaker time". in fact the pictures I posted of her were during her speaker time. she can also hear and recognize the sound of a rice crispy treat being opened anywhere in the house and she WILL find it to get her fair share.
the only things I have ever seen her give a negative reaction to are the dogs. all dogs must learn their place. now the dogs (3 of them) know better then to even look at daddy's baby wrong and will high tail it if the bird gets too close so they dont get in trouble. bella of course believes she ran them off and you can almost see the pride and arrogance in her eyes.
disclaimer: bella is currently being weaned off of her rice crispy treat addiction and a full recovery is expected, and she is never ever allowed to get anywhere near a dog without me right there and a hand inches away from each animal.

Re: What does your bird love/hate? :)

heheh i can just see her strutting with pride at intimidating those dogs...

OH! in regards to the kiwi thing.................Our national symbol is the Kiwi. So much in facts that we dont say "im a new zealander" but "im a Kiwi!".

Its a large (about the size of a rugby....sorry, football) flightless, nocturnal, insect eating, circular bird that lives in a burrow underground (yep, no idea why we picked it, but hey)

So, we only ever say "Kiwi" when we are referring to ourselves, or very rarely, the bird.

We would never call a Kiwifruit a Kiwi - thats just crazy talk!!! I know - I grew up on a kiwifruit orchard, my family are all kiwis but we had lots of kiwis running around the bush (sorry, the woods)

Its just funny seeing your whole national identity naming conures (and cute too). Im thinking of naming my next bird "American". Just for fun!!

Re: What does your bird love/hate? :)

This is a kiwi - But a very weird one. Usually they are asleep in their burrows during the day!
