Funny poicephalus stories

This is a place to write about some of the funny things our birds do. You know those silly or ingenious things our birds do that make us laugh or smile that the non-bird lovers in our lives donít seem to understand why we find it so amusing.

Here are some examples

There will be a place to write about these moments at the top of each of the breed forums. So get those stories rollingÖ. Oh yeah, stories that have pictures always gets a couple extra brownie points.

Re: Funny poicephalus stories

Well I have a Senegal Parrot Popsicle. She is a little devil always up to no good. She has recently started saying "Step Up" and of course she thinks that is the best thing to say, so she says it constantly. Sometimes when I put my finger down for her to step up, before I even say it, she will say Step Up and then run and hide. I'm sure she thinks she is very funny, which I think she is. She will also chase my cat around saying "Step Up, Step Up"

She is just to much fun, I don't think she will ever wanna learn to say anything else.

Re: Funny poicephalus stories

That is just too cute, they have a way of making us smile at the smallest things don't they. Will she laugh after she says step up, its just I can imagine her chasing the cat round saying step up and laughing so hard.

Re: Funny poicephalus stories

I have a 'up' funny with my Senegal.

Keupi learned the up command while he was weaning. I was visiting during that time and loved playing with him. I also figured, never too early... every time we played 'climby' games (from t bar to t bar, t bar to finger, etc) I would always say 'up' anytime he put a foot, well, up.

He's now five. To this day, he will 'up' no matter what - with one foot and only one foot per up. He needs a second 'up' for the other one. One 'up' one foot, second 'up' other foot.

His 'up' command is actually 'up-up' if you want two feet. If you only say 'up' he'll step with one foot and then look at you like 'now what' (he's also said 'what' - yes spoke the word 'what' in the this circumstance - in the 'hello human' tone while he's, um, footing on two different levels). It's so funny though to watch... he's footing on two different perches (either expressing in look or verbal), the person is looking at me and I'll I can say is 'give him another one - he needs two'

Re: Funny poicephalus stories

Hmm, didn't know this thread was here! Tracy and Keupi, those are very funny stories!

Here's one I've previously posted, but because it makes me laugh hysterically, decided to cross-reference it here:

Whoa!!!!

Also, right after we'd gotten Cecil, I worked gawd awful hours and I felt guilty about leaving her home alone (with all the other brats, er, I mean animals). So, I bought a video called "Winged Migration" (and her cage was close to and in view of the television). I set the recorder to play the tape, run out and pay several client visits, run back home and rewind the tape, and run back out to work some more. This went on for a few days. I think Cecil secretly wanted to strangle me and chew the tape up as she was probably so sick of listening to it and watching it.

But, the tape itself had no human voice over on it at all. It was only the sounds of migratory birds. ...

A few days later, I walked in and Cecil was QUACKING LIKE A DUCK!!! ROFL I decided that maybe it was inhumane to make her watch/listen to the tape anymore and returned it to the video store. (I'd still like to purchase one, as I thought it was good for Cecil at the time--just maybe not 24/7 LOL LOL!).

Re: Funny poicephalus stories

That's priceless Deanna!

Your story reminded me of Keupi's crush - his vet in NJ. (She didn't help matters either... kept referring to visits as 'dates' and calling him handsome - the nerve LOL).

He'd spot her across a crowded waiting room and wolf whistle and start perch dancing. Even with having his nails groomed, there he would be on his back and lovingly offer up his feet to the file as long as it was her all googly-eyed.

It was funny.

Re: Funny poicephalus stories

My little poi-guy Tucker is just starting to discover that wood is soooo very fun to chew. But he's getting the concept kind of wrong. I got him these wonderful pesticide-free apple tree branches for in his cage to perch on and he lovvvves to chew on these.

For some reason though, he will perch on the farthest skinniest part of the branch and chew on the part closest to the thick trunk of the branch until both Tucker and the Branch he was chewing on fall to the bottom of the cage. It's so funny when I go in to clean his cage up in the morning to see his progress on the next branch. Hopefully logic will click in soon for him or he'll have a few battle scars to show off to the lady birds someday hehehe

Thats way too funny!I'm sure logic will click in soon for him but if you worry that he might get hurt until then, then put on the floor of his cage something soft for him to fall on...
