Blue and Gold Macaw stopped talking

I have a 9 year old B&G macaw that I've had for about 3 years. He came with a sun conure and a cockatiel and the sun conure recently passed away about 2 months ago from old age . After his passing, my B&G stopped talking. Before he was a chatter box and now he won't say a word. Will he ever start talking again?

Parrots grieve for their lost loved ones, and it sounds like that is what your BG is doing. If he goes off his feed, you'll need to have him examined by an Avian Vet ONLY in your area because sometimes they do go off their feed when grieving. Keep an eye on him and if possible give him extra attention and some of the treats he likes. Just don't go overboard on treats so as to keep him steady on his diet. He will resume his normal self in time once he has grieved for his friend.

Take care and Happy Holidays to you and family from ours.
Linda
