  1. You know I read an article, I cant remember from where, but it said Greys only bite in captivity. Not really sure how they tested the metrics on that or confirmed the findings, but at this point in my research is becoming painful LOL SO to all those folks it the the thread "The parrot bite me club" don't take it personal, I sense no malice on his part, and probably those it has happened to, there inst any malice. I'm going to give it a break for a while start again at the beginning later. It kinda makes you wonder, if the famous Einstein bird ever bit anyone, I imagine if he did, they wouldn't say, bust up his reputation LOL.
  2. I got to thinking about it, right and wrong is an abstract construct that animals cant comprehend, you cant really be pissed over an action that an animal does because they cant understand the concept. They are conditioned by the carrot and the stick. They react only by what they know, one action gets them what they want, and one action takes away something they want. I digress
  3. The damage 24 hours later, we almost had parrot for lunch LOL (Just Kidding)
  4. Well, I was premature.......while playing pirate, he bit me in the eyeball LOL, and I'm surprised i'm not angry with him, bottom left lid, and now it looks like Rocky punched me in the eye....LOL, guess i'm lucky he didn't hit the Iris. Surprisingly, I am not angry with him, it was my fault letting my guard down prematurely. Back to the drawing board :) Anyone got some aspirin? :)
  5. I guess the war is over, which surprises me because it is spring time. Sukei rides on my shoulder again, lets me scratch his head. and when he does bite, its a tap, just an "Im here thing" I dont get it, but it is what it is. When we first rescued him as a tot in the middle east when he was strong enough to stand, I was the first one he would let ride him on my shoulder......we called it the pirate LOL. 8 or so years later, back to square one. I guess Ill never understand. Maybe thats how it is supposed to be. :)
  6. I've noticed this with Sukie before in the spring time, seems to get out of sorts, read some place they get horny in the spring. I don't know if this is true, but I do know this year it seems to be exacerbated. He just turned 8 years old. I find I have to sit down and talk to him in a quiet voice to get him to mellow out. Anyone else have any thoughts on the matter?
  7. I just cleared the "Validating Requests" table after responding to and accepting the few folks that looked like they were legit. If you REALLY want to get in here, then send a note as described in the earlier posts. There were over 2500 pending, and I received two requests to be let in. Clean slate. AGAIN, I apologize,but you have spammers to thank for this tight policy.
  8. Its right at the top between chatbox and who is on line lol @Talon you have used it and posted videos
  9. You just posted the exact situation I have minus one Grey. LOL
  10. I was just curious about folks not thinking before they get a Grey. Kinda like the puppy in the window. I'm going to phrase this in general terms, as it has nothing to do with any registered member here, but who knows who reads here. This is the first time I have run into this. Folks get a grey, and when the novelty wears off, all kinds of excuses are made to offload said puppy/grey. Has anyone run into a person that saw they owned a grey and just thought it was the coolest thing in the world, and was warned its a till death do we part kind of thing, and a relationship that takes years to cultivate, and said relationship may change often and you don't bail at the first sign of trouble. Excuses could be "after two years we found out everyone in the family is allergic to said puppy/grey" The excuse is kinda lame as you would have known this BEFORE two years. I'm kinda feeling some guilt for showing Sukei to them in the first place as they went overboard and got two greys. If this was a close friend, would you have any thoughts for said person? They already knew Sukei and I have our ups and downs, but the commitment is always there, and we work through issues, no matter what. I tried love is not always a feeling, but rather a constant commitment to a relationship, sometimes the feeling is there, sometimes it is not, but you work through it and the feelings return for both you and your grey(s) They are almost more human then we are. I dunno, I hope this makes sense. I re read it twice, and it barley makes sense to me, maybe you folks are more in touch with your inner self LOL
  11. Sukei coughs and does the "Im sick" routine, but never has gone after a pill bottle. LOL, and from the looks of it he wants in that bottle very badly. LOL, too funny.
  12. So as you know, I have been having a biting war with Sukei. I was doing the usual nightly routine (Sukei on perch, me cleaning cage) and I brought the perch over to the cage, and he stands on the door and waits for me to get the cage cover from the other room. He proceeds to get off the door and climbs in the cage, (usual). I go in the other room to put up the vacume, (usual) I cover the cage as normal leaving the round hole open in the front, say good night and sit down start watching TV, and Sukei starts with his usual "Gooood Night Daddy" "Sukei loves Daddy" And my reply is usual, "Then why do you keep biting me?" LOL About ten min later, I look up and see him with his head bowed and smashed up against the bars. (UNusual) Walked up to the cage, and Im thinking, because this bird is smart......he is baiting me in for a try through the bars LOL. I chance it, started petting the top of his head with one finger, and he just sits there like that letting me pet the top of his head through the bars LOL for like 2 or 3 min. He backs up and says "Gooood Night Daddy" "Sukei loves Daddy" You never know what these birds are going to do or when, still amazes me. I think we will leave it at that for a while, all my flesh has healed
