me and my partner have a 11 year old sun conure (female) she is perfectly healthy bar a little bit of feather picking, but a change round in furniture and a bit of attention usually does the trick , but as sweet as she is,she has a problem in keeping her beak shut,at first we thought it was her laying eggs again but that was a good few months ago now and i understand the they can be noisy but it has got to the point of me almost loosing it as she didnt stop from first waking me up at 1/4 to 7 ing the morning intill now at 1/2 past 2 in the afternoon and still going ,its not constant but dous the job as you can imagin i have a big headache and am keen to no how to make her a little bit more quiet so i can get i little more sleep on my day off from work
does anyone have an tips for me, or recomend me to do anything , or is the little demon trying to finn=ish me off lol

I will take her to the vet thanks for the advice ' we do give her attention when we are home but me and my work most of the week so I will give her more attention home. Thanks for the advice again I'm a bit nervous now , but I get her to a vet as soon as possible

Sun conure making noise all the time

Your little bird is trying desperately to get attention. Birds DO get up with dawn, there is no stopping that. However, the fact that the bird screams all the other hours of the day is concerning.

It is possible this is just the bird's way of trying to get you to interact with it, but it is also possible the bird has something internally wrong and has no other way of complaining to you about it. The feather plucking is a concern to, and can point to an infection or something else wrong internally.

Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird to make sure it is healthy, before starting any training, that will be suggested below. Read our avian vet's Feather Damaging Behavior article for information on this problem.

Once you are sure the bird is healthy, then please read some of the training articles on our Parrot Training page. It is possible to teach the bird to do something else besides scream for attention, but the bird will still do something to get attention. Spending time teaching the bird something new will satisfy it's desire for attention and then you get the benefit of the bird doing something else besides screaming.
