    Have you ever had a moment with your parrot, where you say to yourself "how the hec did you know to say that?"
    Or do a double take after they have caught you unawares?
    My B&G often uses the most appropiate sayings at the most appropriate times.
    Like he bites and then asks you "was that sore?". He even cocks his head to see your expression.
    Or he falls off his perch and proclaims "Ow!"
    The one day I was playing with him, by tickling and cuddling him by putting my face in his feathers, for him to turn to me and say Nooooo!
    He has also tapped me on the shoulder and has asked me for a kiss.
    The best was today, we had a black out, so we went to the electricity box to switch the lights back on.
    And as we enter the room, the one African grey James starts barking!
    Our own little gaurd dog! we laughed so hard as it was so unexpected and yet so appropriate.

    I love when they catch you off guard like that. Echo says the weird things sometimes. Once I told him it time for bed and he said "ahhh no"

    One day he was so on point with everything he said I'll never forget it. I took him to the park and he had his harness on and start playing with it. I say to him "that keeps you safe, you need to keep it on." And he goes "I doooo?" Then later on we are in the car heading home, we go over some train tracks and he panics alittle. I tell him he's ok and he goes "I know". Then I tell him what a good boy he is and he says "I am" :hilarious:

    I love all these stories! Since I have tiels, I don't get to much conversation other than "Good Morning, Hello," and variations on things like that. I always wonder what they are really thinking, and what they would say if they could.

    They do say things that make one take a double take. I was sweeping the floor this evening with the broom, and was telling Ella how messy she is.... she told me to go lay down. :huh:

    Language is great but sometime it isn't great too. Take Mister the CAG,:cagrf: at the clinic right now. he has about 200 words vocabulary and 175 of those words are either racist or cuss words. he can talk nice but 99.5 % of the time it followed by some thing nasty. he is learning now that naughty words do not get you treats like popped corn, a shelled nut.

    My CAG who passed away used to be my only bird and his cage was in my bed room....

    Let's just say he inserted an appropriately timed "good boy" that caused both my boyfriend and I to nearly die laughing while he was covered and supposedly sleeping!

    when we went to get him, his vocalization from his travel cage and in the neighborhood we were in, could have gotten us shot, knifed, or something else equally horrible. we pulled into the nearest safe gas station and I wrapped his cage in my black winter jacket. partly to muffle him and put him in the dark. the sad thing is it did muffle. but he was even more mad, more naughty words spew forth. I can't even type them here because I would be banned for life.

    Isn't it strange...I have spent weeks trying to get one of my birds to say a new word. But say a swear word and next day there it is!
    They seem to know they not meant to say it, hence let's learn it quick. I'm sure mom/dad will give me a reaction.
