bird quiet when in room
by: Linda

You did not say how long you've had your bird, so I assume he is a new addition to family. New birds take a long time to feel comfortable. Their trust is earned not freely given, so make sure your bird is fed properly, given clean water and cage and perches cleaned regularly. Also be taking him out of cage so he can get to know you better. If you've not taken him in for an Avian Vet exam, then do this now. Birds sometimes come from pet stores and breeders with infections and these have to be diagnosed and treated by an Avian Vet only. Do this before any stressful training sessions or changes in diet as sick birds can die from too much stress.

Give him some time to get to know you. All birds practice talking alone as they need to practice the sounds. Once he's comfortable with you, he will begin to talk and sing when you are in the room. If your bird is new to the family, he's scared to death of you and any other family members. This is natural because he is small and you are BIG.

Do some reading on the internet about the needs of your particular bird to find out more information about cages, perches, safe toys and safe wood branch perches so his feet get some rest. The internet is full of information about your bird, so do a search on his species, and you'll find a wealth of information. Print some of it out so you can make a notebook of information about your bird as it's important to learn as much as you can to be a good bird parent.

Thanks for writing and keep in touch,
Linda
