My cockatiel won't talk

by Holly

My cockatiel bird is almost 7 months old, before i took him to get clipped a few days ago, he used to say "pretty bird", "whatcha doing" and he would sing. I think it hurt him when he got his beak clipped. Will he talk again?

Quiet cockatiel after beak trim
by: The Avian Vet

He will likely talk again, but his beak is still painful after 2 weeks of trimming. If he was traumatized it may be even longer. You should have him looked at again if he is not better by now.
