thats a weaning thing. hes hungry, still a baby. how old is he?
He's 10 or 11 weeks now and fully on seeds. How strange. Right after this was taken he put his head down for me to scratch his neck and continued the sounds all throughout. When I would stop he would bend lower so his neck was right near my fingers and continue this whine. Is he asking for a neck scratch?

Yeah, he's asking for attention. Arnie used to be that loud too and go on for hours, even after a big feed! It's the only way he knows how to get stuff at his age - it used to work for food, now it'll work for head scritches! He will grow out of it in time.

Soooo glad I just found this.
My Spikey is 10weeks old and suddenly started making this sound today!
Offering millet and sunflower seeds by hand made him do it even more though til he was really loud and he wouldn't take them from me.
So I gave him more food in his bowl and he stopped!!
Love this site!
