Baby conure ALWAYS screaming!!

by Edwin Otero
(Puerto Rico)

I have a 45-50 day baby sun conure and he is always screaming!! I've had him for about a week, and I took him to the vet for a check-up, everything seemed fine. Then I started reading and discovered that screaming all day long is not normal. Sometimes she would be playing the suddenly just stop and start screaming and closing her eyes. I am very conserned!!! What could this be? Thank you.

P.S. Is not food because I feed her 3 times daily.

My nanday conjure sounds off (loudly) in what seems like continuing screaming. These type of birds are very social. They like hanging out in clusters. so...... You are their (flock). They require interreaction. Also lets not forget that they are birds and birds vocalize. Their only problem when they are sounding off, it's like living with a car alarm going off in your house. LOL. My bird likes to pluck out earings, head bands, hair ties and my glasses, grrrrr. Gotta love her though. Good luck.

Yourng conure not weaned and screaming
by: The Vet

A 50 day old conure should be nearly weaned, if not completely weaned. Nearly means 1 feeding per day; certainly not 3. The behaviors you are referring to may be associated with a bacterial or yeast infection. Your bird is not weaning on time and is begging. These are signs that something is wrong.

I recommend that you take your bird in to see an avian veterinarian as soon as possible ? today would be advised. Be sure the vet has experience hand feeding and weaning babies, if not, they may not be able with weaning, but they can at least diagnose an illness.
