    GCC in an apartment?

    I'm planning to get a Green Cheek Conure but I live in an apartment. I've been doing research but there are so many different opinions on how "loud" a GCC is! I would not risk getting a bird if I am not able to care for it for the foreseeable future, so if a GCC is not right for apartment living...

    How do I tell a conure "no" to keep it from doing something again? I get bit sometimes and I want them to know that I don't like it. I have two and they're both green-cheek conures. Also, is there a way to keep them quiet if they have a random chirping spree? I don't want to use food as a means...

    Quaker is so loud. Is there any method of keeping him quiet during the day?

    When I leave the room, he won't stop screaming. When I'm with him, but I'm not giving him attention, he's screaming, but not as often (thank God). Is there anything i can do to quiet him down? I've tried music and the blanket over the cage thing, and it barely works.

    the happening of the squeeky vacuume wheel

    So, my pi Eva is quite vocally talented. At only 4 months old she actually impresses me. Although, in the midst of teaching her not to screech when I leave the room, our wonderful old vacuume decided to bestow upon us a squeeky wheel.. now, the great part about this, is that this wheel actually...

    Constant Screaming

    My parrot is constantly screaming. Every five minutes, theres a loud scream coming from the living room. I'm okay if she would only do it every now and then, as that's normal, but it's very excessive. Her previous owners would give her attention when she would scream, so she learned to scream...

    Two different screaming situations I'd like to work on -- Is it possible?

    So Oliver has always screamed for me when I leave the room or come home from somewhere. This isn't much of an issue because the birds are upstairs and you can only sort of hear them when the door is closed. However in the mornings they wake me up with the screaming and I'd like to try to train...

    Question about how loud GGC can get.

    I recently adopted a 6 month old Green Cheek Conure, he is totally adorable and sweet. My main concern with him is how loud he can get. He was silent the entire first day I had him except for when I went to put him to bed. He squawked and screamed for about 45 minutes. I know this is common, but...
