Yes it is a mommie call basically, a begging behavior for food. That's why I kept mentioning the need to monitor the food intake and weight.

Right, so weigh Poptart everyday ??

When we got the baby Plett I built a small "T" stand that I would zero out on the gram scale, for the first 2 months I weighed her everyday

Re: My cockatiel is making weird noises..

At the beginning of fledge it is not unusual for them to drop weight, they do that for flying. Then they will pack on a bit of weight afterwards around 3 months old or so.

Re: My cockatiel is making weird noises..

Definitely sounds like baby 'tiel food calling! If you look up "cockatiel hand feeding" on Youtube, you'll find baby tiels making the same/similar noise!


Mikey is correct, make sure your baby is still eating well and maintaining weight!

Re: My cockatiel is making weird noises..

Spike does that sound when she wants her baby food, and when she's eating her mushed veggies.

Re: My cockatiel is making weird noises..

I have noticed that anytime Poptart is out of millet, he begins making that noise! As soon as i put more millet in he is very content! He is eating very well and he does not feel skinny at all. I have been feeding him bits of apple also. I made an appointment with a local Avian vet on Friday to get a well check and to get established as a patient. I have also noticed he cuddles up to my neck and grinds his beak.( I am just saying him cause I feel bad calling Poptart it..LOL ) Thanks again for all the advice!
