my cockatiel won't be quiet!!!
my cockatiel, jacob, will be 7 years old in may. he has always been attached to me and in turn screamed when not around. however, lately no matter what,i can not get him to be quiet. if im reading, he will just cheep and cheep and cheep. if i leave the room, even when he can see me, he just goes crazy! i don't know what to do anymore. spraying him with a water bottle doesnt work, leaving him alone in my bedroom doesn't work, and niether does covering his cage. the only thing that works most of the time is putting him in my closet where it is dark. and trust me, when he wants to, he screams his head off even while in there. i would never hurt my bird, but this screaming and cheeping all the time is driving me CRAZY!!! i just dont know what to do anymore! any suggestions would be great..thanks, christine.
