Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

Well in the few short weeks I have had mine now, I give them a 15 time out with the cover and they calm right down. Also what works well for me is I give them a 30 second shower on the sink perch and that keeps them busy preening there feathers after being wet. I do a little towel drying first then put them back on there perch. I do find too that having them in my site most of the time keeps them quite. Its only if I go out of the room for a moment that the male starts his calling. The female is pretty much on the quite side.

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

If my Blue Crown gets excessively noisy, then i'll cover her up. If she is having a temper tantrum I leave the room until she is completely quiet and return with a treat. Showing her that being quiet is the preferred noise level. We can't always quiet them, but sometimes it can be toned down.

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

Give them a lot of things to do. Plenty of different types of toys, a swing, a TV or radio. Conures really like to go from one thing to another. My Nanday is quietest when I'm with her even if I'm doing something other than playing with her. She can see the computer screen from her cage so we watch videos and stuff like that. She likes to watch videos of other birds and see pictures of them.

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

I leave the room an don't come back until he is quiet. Being loud is acceptable though when greeting me and contact calls through the house, if he is scared, etc, but loud screeching for no reason is not and be ignored. I also encourage him to use his softer chirps by responding to them and ignoring the loud calls when in the same room.

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

I guess I haven't experienced screaming for what seems like no reason. She contact calls, and gives an alarm screech when someone comes over. Sometimes she screeches out of joy, but I don't have a problem with that. My BC did that, too. She also screeches about anything I bring into this room that isn't normally in here, including the vacuum and broom every day. But, that is her being territorial. I just ignore that, or say, "It's alright", which seems to calm her down some.

Pete will scream when he is upset about something, and that something might be me in the kitchen making dinner. And he can see me while I'm in there. When he does that, I totally ignore him until he stops. I think he still has anxiety issues though about being rehomed. He is the one who worries a lot whenever I have to leave for any reason. And if I'm gone for more than a couple of hours, he will scream when I return, too (not a greeting, but screaming out his anxiety over my being gone). I think eventually he will come to realize that I'm always coming back, and that he's not going to another new home.

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

My Blue Crown starts her screams when I bring strange objects into the room as well! Moreso large objects, and especially opening trash bags!

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

Oh, Rowdy screamed over trash bags for... a decade, lol! She has finally stopped on those. And that's something I bring in every day to clean their cages. It doesn't matter if it's large or small; if it's not for bird entertainment and is not in this room 24/7 she yells about it. She is just extremely territorial. Now last year I bought a new large screen TV. Once it was out of the box and she saw it was a TV, she didn't scream about that. She loves TV. But walk through here with a power drill and listen to what happens, lol!

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

Lol!! Now I understand!! I just experienced this myself first hand yesterday!! I brought a new wardrobe into the room and Zazu screamed his little head off the whole entire time. I kept leaving the room until he was quiet but as soon as I was back and started working again, back to screaming he went! Too funny. At least now I know why and will remember that for the future!

Re: how do you quiet down your sun conures?

If the bird is screaming for you, then covering up the bird really isn't going to work in the long run. The bird in a sense still wins, because he got you to return to the room. I used to do this with my birds but only made them scream worse. Try walking away from the bird everytime he screams, and return when he is quiet. Also, try to find out if there is a pattern during the day when he screams, maybe you can prevent it by giving him a treat before. Good luck!
