Just wondering what sort of nicknames your budgies and parrots have (or am I the only one that has a special lingo for mine:p) ?

Oisin was often called;
Little sweets
Tickles
Chirpies
Little wee


Noah's is often called;
Chicky or Chicky Chicks
Chicken Licken
Yellow bird
Little rascal


I have full on conversations in high pitched bird language lol - I guess I'm the crazy bird lady :D

This is a fun topic :). You're not alone Niamh...

Robin - Peepy (or is it P.P.?, or PeePee?) and sometimes I even ask him that. :giggle:

Raven - Eye ring guy (I know, embarrassingly stupid :eek:) but that's what came to mind one day and I said it and it stuck... He has extra large eyes with prominent light skin circles on a dark background.
Even more embarrassing, I call his salmon pink colored throat and upper chest markings his chest hair :giggle: LOL!!

Griffin - When I first got him I called him a Giant Fuzzy Moth cause he's soft and gray, and hops and leaps like an insect :). I don't really call him anything now, except I make a big fuss over how incredibly adorable and soft and cute he is :loveeyes:

The budgies don't have nick names. I should start thinking of some lol.

Edit: I just remembered another one :D... I DO have a nickname for Griffin. It's "Back Bird". You know, like a shoulder bird, except he prefers hanging on the back LOL. Even when you bend over, he walks farther down the back to the lower back haha!
Back Bird is Griffin's alter ego... I never admit to him that I know they're one in the same :giggle:... I ask Back Bird "Where's Griffin? Back Bird, have you seen Griffin today?" Of course I never "see" Back Bird, I only feel him on there :p

* I just added an edit at the bottom of my first post above, as I just thought of another funny one for Griffin!

My Pionus Raven is a fairly good talker, and he made up his own nicknames :). One day he started calling himself Ray, or Ray Ray. I had never called him that lol.

Oh how cute :) Does he bob his head whan he says it too? :)
No, but I think he wants attention when he calls himself by his nicknames :)
