Parrot stopped talking and whistling

by Jenny
(Scotland)

My parrot aged 43 years had a fall off her perch a couple of months ago and since then has lost the power to whistle or speak like she used to. Will it come back and what can I do to help? She seems to have regained her confidence in climbing up and down the cage and will at last come out and sit on top of the cage again.

Parrot stopped talking after fall
by: Tracie

This is not something that Dr B can help with, because he would need to examine your bird. If you did not take your bird to an avian vet for an examination after the fall, then that is what you need to do now. You need to find out why the bird fell and why the bird stopped talking etc.

If you don't have an avian vet, then you can use this Find an Avian Vet link to help you find one.
