Cool I found "trick'" to make 'Nut stop screaming when outside....

Sponsored Links
For the pass few days 'Nut has started screaming when outside... he's doing it because he hears wild birds outside and he only does this for a few hrs in the mornings. Rascal does NOT do this at all... not even a little bit. Only 'Nut does and it's quite loud.... eeeee!!!! eeee!!!! eeee!!!! over and over again nonstop without even 3 seconds between each scream like a very loud clucking chicken.

I'm moving into a condo soon and if this was happening there I would be in big trouble... I would definitely get complaints... it's VERY annoying it even drives me crazy. This is a new "habit" 'Nut has developed... but I found the trick to make him stop is I simply spray him with water using a bottle sprayer... he loves being sprayed and immediately starts bathing... it's hot in Florida pretty much all the time so I don't have to worry bout it being too cold outside.

... and the best part is after spraying him down he is too busy preening and/or drying off and stops his screaming ... it seems to also calm him down.
"Lil' Rascal" (Geraldine) hatched July 11th 2012 and his baby brother "Coconut" ('Nut) hatched March 2016
