We do poorly with talking to birds. I think that producing frustration.

I think animals are like people. Some are affable, some aloof, some are lovable and some are just plain Richard Craniums.

You can see it in dogs as well.

Birds though, feel more threatened more easily, so there's that....

Yes lots of money involved in the races. It’s wild the training and everything that goes into it. Not cheep at all. 

Not cheap at all.

I know, back in 80's in Europe, Denmark Holland and Germany quality racing homers could cost you 50K and more.

I heard Denmark bird that was champion 2 years in the row racing from Turkey to Denmark was sold for 225, 000 German Marks at that time

Converting to $ it was more than $110,000

I was never much into homers; I was (still am) obsessed with high-flyers.

We use to say, raising pigeons is not a hobby; it is a disease.

That's one reason, but we need a proper technique to talk to them. In a very clam environment with nothing distract them. Talk to them and they will listen. Slow moving action helps. Treat helps. They are like little babies. Noisy , exciting environment scares them.

My mom has an African gray, he’s funny as hell sometimes and just as annoying the others. Used to live across from a fire station, sounded alarms 3x a day. He picked that up and it’s not pleasant. Other than that he’s chill.

They are funny. Of all the parrots, African Greys are my favorite. I’ve heard them do many cell phone ring tones and crazy stuff. African Greys also don’t seem as needy as other parrots.

I can imagine fire alarm going on at 3 AM.

LOL
