I simply acquired a Pionus parrot. They instructed me he’s about 1 12 months previous. He may be very a pleasant, loving chook. The hassle is that he screams anytime my spouse or I are speaking or if the telephone rings. Why does he do that?
This is a troublesome query to reply. Telephones appear to make parrots barely loopy. It could be the pitch of the ring or the sound of the opposite individual? voice. Most parrots wish to be the focal point or at the least be part of what’s going on round them. The greatest approach to maintain a parrot from screaming when you find yourself having a telephone dialog is to enter one other room. Over the years, I’ve not discovered a magical answer to this query. Of course, the extra you inform them to cease, the extra of a drama reward they get, and this normally aggravates the screaming.
As far as working with the chook whilst you and your spouse are speaking, I feel that having him close by and letting him be part of the dialog in a extra optimistic method could make a distinction. My African gray, Bongo Marie, needed to be part of each dialog. At first, she made some fairly obnoxious noises however, as time handed, my pals knew that Bongo could be part of the dialog. In the center of the dialog, I’d take a look at Bongo and say, “Bongo, what do you assume??Eventually as a substitute of constructing her obnoxious noises, she would touch upon the dialog by interjecting such phrases as “Who do you assume you’re??or “Oh no!?It was really fairly humorous when she joined the dialog. A Pionus parrot could not discuss that effectively, however it’ll nonetheless admire being a part of the group.
