separation anxiety ?
i have a 14 mo old groffin cockatoo who i think has separation anxiety, when i leave the room for just a short period of time, he starts to scream. i have tried staying out of the room longer, but sometimes he wouldn't calm down for more then 1/2 hr or so & it is so hard on me. i would talk to him while am way, but he just yells over me. & also i would just take him with me all the time, but worry that is enforcing the problen. as i mention it is when i get up & leave the room or when i walk in the door after work.
