we have a 10 yr old quaker that screams non stop. today i was with the bird 6 and a half hours and he screamed at me the entire time. i placed him in his cage several times and he has plenty of toys and mirrors he loves. when you hold him he will quiet and then starts mating behaviors trying to regurge on me and trying to rub his butt on my face or hands this mating behavior has been going on since we moved myself and my daughter are the only ones who can hold the bird he lives with my daughter who is very busy and i at times go to her home and watch the bird.
before the move he lived in the home with the both of us and we never seen the mating behavior like it has been. the screaming is mainly done towards me he wil play for a min or 2 and then sits on the edge of his cage and just screams at me, i am at a loss of what to do because i cant get anything done or have a moment of quiet time. and how many hours of sleep should he have. do birds need naps.
thank you cheryl french
