he keeps chirping why won't he stop?
Birds sing for a number of reason,
5 wanting your attention
6 wanting to be out of the cage
7 needs more food or water
But usually its because they are happy and they want to sing to you, Put a radio on and this will keep him happy..
could it be the dogs just got in? oh and I found your site while I was looking for a project for school. great site! :y_the_best: :mrgreen:
He could be wanting to get your dogs attention so he is chirping on, If it gets too much simply cover the cage and he will quieten down.
Also welcome to the boards
thank you and why is it that when people get to close to the cage he starts going berserk (he also does that with the dogs)
He could either be warning people to stay away or he is wanting to be out of the cage.
My birds go crazy when anyone goes near the cage for someone to let them out
oh is that so ok but what is it when the dogs go near? I wish I knew what it was about.
If its when your dogs go passed it sounds like a fear reaction and this is there way to warn the dogs to stay away from the cage.
He probably wants your attetion.
Yep, I agree with Zeppy.
Now that summer's here I can sit on my bed all day and have my two little parakeets hopping and flying around the room, and one of them, to my delight, will very often come as close as he can to me and begin cheeping very loudly because he wants me to give him some millet spray.
You should here my cockatiels go off when I pull up in the car, "CRIKEYS"..Talk about a really warm welcome lol.. :lol:
I find if theres more noise in the house, talking, music, TV, they will try to compete..The more noise the louder they get..
One of my cockatiels is like that she dont half use her vocals hahah, I put it down to me hand raising her from 3days old and she likes my attention all the time, Even during breeding season she will do her duty with her mate then call to be let out of the cage, When she has laid eggs after each one laid she will call for me until she gets my attention and sits there all proud as if to say look daddy i got another one hahah.
She loves music and will whistle along happily, She has different tunes and tones which most people thought she was a male including me when she was younger as the males are usually the only ones with a different note range....
But cockatiels are great big parrots in a little body is what i say
Lol charmedagain, now thats bonding
I have 4 cockatiels and one budgie, Iv got some piccs i'l put up..
