not exactly sure what he's doing on these. we think it's displaying? it sure is funny to watch and ear splitting when he lets rip <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> he does this for about 20 minutes and then has a cddle. yes you are seeing right he is being nice to hubby again!! he even let him check his feathers without nailing him!! he preened himself on his knee as wel. could we have turned a corner with him? let's hope so. if anyone can work out what he's doing could you let me know and why he's doing it!!

When hes got his wings up does he bob up and down really really fast. If so thats what Kylie does when she gets out of her cage and shes all excited. She sometimes does it that fast she looks like shes gonna fall off the cage. <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

I think its a kind of 'Woooooooo look at me' kind of thing LOL <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> We weren't sure if it was a 'keep away from me or I'll have you' kind of pose but on Xmas day my son got a lifesize Golden Retriever soft toy and that was when we found out the keep away pose. Kylie opened her wings in a rounded sort of way and did this snake like movement with her body, she looked like a Cobra or something. Hubby was saying 'that pose is evil'!!! <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> She also had her beak wide open hissing. The toy is now banished from the living room. <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

That is exactly what a healthy adjusted 'too should be doing. You and hubby give your self a pat on the back. wink
Corky, while loud as all get out, crazed, and insane looking, is displaying! Something you should see at least 2x a day, morning and night. Its like letting a kid out to run around like crazy for 20 minutes during the day, they need it!
You may see it more often, but if it stops, it may be a sign of something wrong. Sick birdy, upset you changed his schedual, pissed you took away a favorite toy....add this to your growing list of body language to look for.
And yes, try to wait until its over for playtime. While all excited like this, you stand a good chance of getting hurt during the excitement.

I agree with Jasper's Butler. Our too does the same posturing, and it eventually morphs into what we call her "water jones", in which she just must play in water. If we don't take her to the shower, she tries to stuff herself up the tube of her water bottle, then puts her toe up the tube, and lets the water flow over her. It is all part of a too announcing to the world that it is here, and that it owns all it sees. Enjoy!

Kylie also does this, but not everytime, she goes to her water dish and gets a beak full and shakes her head so it splashes all over and dances about on her perch. A wierd thing is though that she does the water thing everytime I use the hairdryer or the hoover?? She also hangs upside down on her ropes.

he does do this on a morning as well but not as loud. we found out also by accident that he can do it on command. hubby says show us your elvis and bobs his head then corky does the same. he even has an elvis quiff with his crest <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> yes he likes to think he owns everything but is receiving strong opposition from the hubby. he refuses to be corkys b**ch, but you can't keep a good too down and we're sure he's gonna keep trying wink

we are but not as bad as you i don't think. we're in york so we're a bit more sheltered being in a vale. have you still got water and electricity? i think it might be worth us thinking about an emergency plan for the birdies should we lose power and stuff. or have you already done that?

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed, I think if the worst happens we'll be getting Kylie in the pet carrier and going to my parents house. Our rats had a lucky escape the other night, they usually live in a huge cage in the shed but that night I let the kids bring them in to the smaller cage in the house. The next morning the shed had blown over. I was really shocked. The winds meant to be as bad tonight again so its like Pet rescue in here LOL

I don't know about 8 inches but I wish we could have a little bit of snow, I bought a sleigh about 5 years ago and its still brand new. Everytime the weather forecast shows snow we all get our hopes up and what do we get, more rain!!! <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />

will swap your snow for these gales and rain leigh lol we love snow. we also have a sledge that's never been used in our garage <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> corky has practically stopped biting rich now. he still tries it on but now we can tell when he's gonna do it. he flies to his shoulder and starts doing that dance and then bites him. so now when he flies to him he puts his arm up so he can't land on his shoulder laugh

It is definately a case of learning from your mistakes when it comes to Toos. I know not to try and take her out of her cage so that she doesn't remove my fingers and since yesterday I know not to give her my cheek to let her kiss it. My face is killing me today. <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> Hubby thinks I'm mad!!!!

You know what? Crystal does a very similar dance and Sassy is starting also. Must be a Sulfer Crested dance. Crystal mostly displays like that when he wants his mist bath. Your bird is soooo pretty! I think the LSC2's are much more entertaining than the Umbrella's. My U2's are more cuddly. Any way I look at it I love all my Too's! smile

it's about the only thing we get a laugh at with him at the minute. but from what i've read he must be happy to do it. here's hoping laugh i took some piccies of him having a cup of tea and one of them shows him having a fuss from our eldest. it was taken only an hour or so before he tried attacking her. he looks really funny with his pink winnie the pooh cup being the big hard too he is!!!

Newtoo, I hate to add to your problems but that isn't the clip you are looking for. That is a show clip, the outer primaries are left in tact to make a good show presentation. The fact that he was clipped at all will probably calm him down somewhat but I hope you will find some competent help soon.

That guy needs a rocket in both ends.
