I wish to complain about this parrot what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.

I remember when I was a kid my grandfather had an ancient parrot, he inherited from his mother. It called him Jack, I knew my grandfather as Grandpa John. It wasn't until well after they both died that I learned that he stopped going by Jack right after his service in WWII. That crazy bird remembered grandpa and his nickname from more than 40 years earlier.

CSB..
I have a friend who raises African Greys. The brood cages have about 14 birds in them. They have a separate grey named Bijou, she's very friendly and lets me scratch her head all the time, with just an occasional love nip. She normally indicates that she wants to be scratched by lowering her head and fluffing her feathers.
Well, I see a BIG grey in the brooding cage lower his head and fluff his feathers as if needing a scratch, so I stick my finger through the wire and BAM.....the little sonofabiatch nearly breaks my finger with a bite, deeply puncturing the skin.
As I staunched the bleeding, the little farker goes..."Heh heh heh......
Bastard.

Circa 1972, my uncle got an African Grey from a customer and brought it home. The bird was nasty to everyone in the house, even after a couple of months. My aunt was cleaning the cage one day and the bird took a big bite of her arm. She grabbed it and threw it against the wall. Stunned, the bird got itself up off the floor and from that moment on, he was "her" bird and never dared to bite her again. Still nipped everyone else in the family.

The bird picked up a number of common phrases from both my aunt and uncle, and sounded exactly like them. Which was kind of weird after my uncle died, because the bird's favorite phrase was my uncle saying, "Aw shiat!"

I think the bird finally died about 2 years ago.

If you ever get an african grey, make plans on who it will go to after you die, because it will probably outlive you. And watch your language.

My sis is a shelter veterinarian, so she is intimately familiar with what happens to every animal whose owners don't have a "plan." She couldn't even really enjoy the IKEA Monkey story because of the implications behind people owning wild creatures, sharply dressed or not. She brought up ownership of parrots as a particularly bad thing, because people just cannot plan 40 years or more in advance for the care of an animal, particularly if they're nasty or fan guano all over your house whenever they get a twinge of "restless wings syndrome."

Another CSB:

I worked at a pet shop during undergrad. We sold damn near everything there including the occasional parrot. One day this guy came in and told us about a bird he inherited, and asked if there was any way to break it of bad its bad habits. Apparently, the bird would very sweetly call out, "Heeeeeeeeere kitty kitty kitty". The guy's cat would come up to the cage to find out what was going on, at which point the parrot would screech and then attack the cat (as best it could through the bars). After a few of those episodes, the cat was slowly going insane.

We ended up laughing too hard to be able to give him any constructive suggestions.

Or any large bird, for that matter. We spent the last week of our honeymoon on Hamilton Island (QLD, Oz), and one bored day we visited the small and inconsequential zoo. The visit was topped off with a Cockatoo show, walking on rollers, choosing cards, all that tedium. The zookeeper told us that one of the birds, a large guy by the name of Colonel, they'd inherited after its owner had passed on. The owner got the bird when they were 40, and died aged 80. That was 32 years previous.

That's a perfectly healthy 72-year old Cockatoo doing party tricks.

And that was 10 years ago, bugger's probably still alive.

No apologies necessary, it was hilarious....it was my fault, was inevitable, and I knew better.
NEVER offer a finger to an unfamiliar bird. They will remove it posthaste.

My neighbor currently has 2 Yellow Nape Amazons, they meow to the cats and cluck at the chickens. The male whistles the song from the Bridge Over the River Kwai.
After a few beers, it's quite funny.

shiat!

Any of you Farkers up for possibly inheriting an emu? He's a good soul, if a bit cranky when he doesn't get his daily Butterfinger Bites. Gotta be Butterfinger Bites. He won't eat the big ones - I think they look like poops to him. Which, by the way, he loooooves to fling, and with those legs... let's just say there's no place far enough away when he finds one of my dog's out in the back yard.

Anyway, I'm not planning on checking out soon, but better safe than sorry. Who's up for taking Clyde after I go?

My buddy had a big green bird back in college. I hated that thing with a deep burning passion, and I believe the feeling was mutual. I offered my roommate money to let me give it to a shelter or allow me to find it a good home. He still would not give the damn thing up.

There is nothing worse then waking up early in the morning and as soon as you make the faintest of noises .. "AWWK AWWK AWWK AWWK!". That thing would probably be a better security alarm then most dogs and fire alarms combined. The thing shiat and then would somehow fling it into the living room, bit everyone that got within striking distance and was an intentional dick? How can a bird be an intentional dick you ask? If the bird ever saw you were on the phone it would squawk as loud as possible. We tested this a couple time by putting our phones to our ears and pretend speaking, and sure enough he would start freaking out. Also, if we had a new friend or lady over and didn't pre-warn them about the bird, they always got hurt. This bird literally purred like a cat (which is weird because we never owned a cat) and would whistle sweetly. They moment they got within striking distance though, it was like Hell with wings. I believe when I moved out the grand total over 3 years living there was 6 people needing to go to the hospital with stitches.

I still hate birds today because of that things. And the bird aeries in zoos scare the shiat out of me....

My parrot would throw nuts out of the cage as far as he could. The cat would pounce on it. He'd throw a little closer, cat pounce... then he would carefully drop the nut out of the cage, cat pounce. The bastard would then reach out and bite the cat's tail as hard as it could.

Also, when we were watching movies after we had put the sheet on over its cage, he would chew a hole through the sheet and we would see his little beady eye in the hole. If the movie was loud he would put his mouth to the hole and insist quite loudly "ITS BEDTIME!" (which is what we told him when we put the sheet on his cage)

I love all the baffled bird hate.

"I've taken a marginally intelligent creature who's natural habitat is the entire f*cking sky, and confined it to a 3 cubic foot wire cage with sh*t caked news paper on the bottom. I even put a stick in there for it to play with! Why would it try to bite people?!"
 
2013-01-30 08:54:16 PM  
What's so hard about 'parting ways' with the bird?... just smuggle it into your local Lowes or Home Depot, let it go then make for the car. Alls well....

I had roommates that had two white parroty kind of birds.  (Sorry, I never learned what they were.)
Anyway, their cage sat on a table covered w newspaper. During the day the roommates would leave the cage door open, and the birds would leave the cage and walk around on the table. They loved to rip the newspaper up and play with it.

Later on, I got a kitten.
One day I walked into the room w the bird cage, and the two birds were ripping little pieces of paper off, and throwing them down to the ground.
The kitten was down there ecstatically jumping around and trying to catch all the little bits as they were thrown.

It was super cute, the birds were fully aware of what they were doing.

A guy buys an African Grey from a store. The store clerk said that the bird outlived the original owners and was happy to see it find a new home. The guy sets up a nice cage and after a few days the bird starts talking, saying things like "Fark off you lazy ....". Very fowl language. This lasted for a couple of weeks, to the point where the guy lost his girlfriend because the bird would say mean things to her. 
One evening the bird is chattering away, cussing and being rude, when the guy opens the cage and grabs the bird and throws him in the freezer. At first the parrot squawked and screamed but then it went silent. The guy got scared that he had killed it. When he opened the freezer door, the parrot was there and politely said "I am sorry for offending you and I promise it will never happen again. But I gotta ask - what did that turkey in there do?"

A woman was looking for an unusual pet for her husband's birthday. The shop owner showed her a parrot priced at $500. When asked why so much he told the woman that the parrot could engage in oral sex. The woman not fond of her husband's continual requests for a bj, took the parrot home and told her husband of the parrot's talents. Everyone went to bed happy. About 3:30 in the morning, the woman awoke to the sounds of pots and pans banging in the kitchen. She went down and asked her husband what was going on. He said "If I can teach this parrot to cook, you're outta here."

It's killing me that I can't remember my favorite one of all time.  It had something to do with a guy buying a parrot because the shop owner said it could teach him how to go down on his wife...  The guy returns the parrot to the shop because it doesn't work, and the owner goes home with the guy, and says he needs to see the wife and the bedroom.  Then he goes, "Now watch carefully Polly, I'm only going to show you how to do this one more time!"
