Can I give something to my Cockatoo to calm him down?
Our Cockatoo screams non-stop sometimes. I understand that they like to scream, and, he is a great cuddler, but, sometimes we can't stand it anymore. He's a great bird but we can't hold him 24 hours a day. If we try to get some things done around the house and walk out of the room he screams continuously.
We used to have horses and we would give something to our Thoroughbred to calm him down if we planned on riding him. Is there anything safe we can give to him to sort of calm him down? We don't want to get rid of him but sometimes we can't take it anymore.
