Not all birds are talkers, or noisy. Some birds never shut up. lol

Doesn't ness. mean there's anything wrong with the bird, just means you may have gotten a quiet bird.

I would first start off by taking your bird to an avian vet. Get her examined. Make sure she is healthy. If she's healthly then she's just a quiet bird.

My congo african grey discovered at 6 months that she could talk, and hasn't shut up since. Runs her beak for hours and hours a day. She doesnt care if someone new comes in the house or not... she's got to talk non-stop.

Just because you buy a bird for it's talking abilities, there's never a garrantee they will want to talk. And that's okay.

I'd like to just throw this out there too, bc most people dont realize this.
Birds need 10-14 hours of sleep PER night. In a dark quiet room. If your bird isnt getting proper amounts of sleep, they will tend to be quiet the following day. Even nap. Please be sure your bird has a dark quiet place to roost for a good 10-14 hrs. My birds go to bed at 8pm, and are up at 7am talking.

Try giving her more sleep time. See if that helps. And visit an avian vet for a wellness exam.

Good luck.
