teach him to chew gum and clap from the sidelines as you do your own thing with your iPad


Won't be easy. He's a persistent little bugger. Hardly ever gives up when he wants something.

Manipulative too. Sometimes he'll peck at me, and then before I can even say anything he'll have his head down cooing stuff like "pretty bird, daddy loves the bird" in a soft, sweet voice.

On the flip side, just about every time I swear in front of her, the female will look at me and in a reproachful manner say "be good" :blink:

(only thing I can figure is she's reacting to my tone of voice)

Not quite the same. Can your kids fly? :lol:

Granted, I can put mine in a cage when they misbehave. You can't do that.

(technically you could, but the authorities might frown upon it)

I doubt he could fly with the iPad. He's picked up things I thought were too heavy for him before, but I doubt he could get this.

I'll add one more...

My old apartment had a walk-in closet with a metal rack that had slots for hangers. Since I'm kinda compulsive about stuff, I hung all my shirts exactly two spaces apart.

One day while I was working on something, I could hear Fox in the closet. He liked to try and build nests out of free coat hangers, but that day he seemed to be doing something different. Curiosity got the better of me and I went to look at what he was up to.

The little nimrod had moved nearly all of my shirts exactly one slot to the left.

When he saw me, he stopped and sat there with an "I wasn't doing anything" manner in his body language.

The ex said "I guess you must be pretty bad if even the bird knows how to irritate you" :blink:

I wouldn't think he could possibly have known that, but as to why he did it? No idea :unsure:

This is Fox.

Despite how he might look like he wants to rip your face off, he's actually very friendly. "Mischievous, but friendly" is what this breed of parrot tends to be known for.

To be clear, he's not named after the old coach. His legband says FX3235 (breeder was called Florida Exotics). I saw that and decided to call him "Fox".

The female's name is "Quak", which is short for quaker parrot.

I realize these names took a lot of crativity on my part :unsure:

Are the trained to poop and pee in certain areas/cage?

Having them around would be kinda cool, but only if I didn't have to clean up bird poo.

Nah. I still love the little brat too much.

But just so you know, Fox absolutely loves the taste of chicken. Turkey too. He'll even eat scrambled eggs (kinda disturbing when you think about it).

I took a picture a while back of him holding a wing from Dominos in his claw and munching on it. Pic somehow got deleted though :(



I had a litter trained pet rabbit that loved ground beef. I never gave it to him on purpose but he was always trying to steal my burgers and poo off my plate if I left it sitting.

There's something distinctly unnatural about a rabbit eating a cow.

It's possible, but very difficult. For most bird owners, the compromise is recognizing the body language of "I'm about to poop" and holding them over a can or something.

They'll also peck at your clothes, and that's a behavior that's nearly impossible to train out of them. That's why I have a bunch of old t-shirts that I use as "bird shirts".

Birds need a significant amount of attention. If that's not possible in your or your family's situation, I wouldn't recommend having a bird.

Wow, sounds like a ton of work, but a cool companion.

I could never have one, I work far too much to be able to spend enough time with it.

Birds definitely aren't for everyone.

They can be very sweet companions for the right person, but the situation has to be right.
