I have had a cockatiel for a while and Im not very sure if thats a problem but, for a while now he has been screaming/squeling a lot of times and im not very sure why. Do you have any ideas on why he does that?
Thanks for replying! I think it might be because he is tired because he does that more in night time but i have also noticed a broken feather so im not sure if that pains him..How is he screaming? Does it sound painful? I also may think he\she has something going on. Hope you find your answer!
Oh i see.. Ill consider doing that from now onCover when getting dark to mimic their natural circadian rhythm. Upset their natural light/dark rhythm if you don't. For me, when I go to bed I uncover cages and open curtains for natural daylight in the morning.
Sometimes when preening they will hurt themselves and give a small scream, but they know why. Only time I hear something worse is if they have a major fright from something.
