    Cockatoo Shouting

    Hello! As all of you know cockatoos can be very very loud. I see plenty of websites making this very well known, and rightly so, as owning a cockatoo isn't for everyone, and needs to be very seriously considered. And maybe I'm just an oddball but is anyone else just completely unbothered/even...

    Soundproofing/sound absorption in a 2 story house

    Hello again! So I have a plan to put my IRN in a room upstairs with my bearded dragon. I spend a lot of time in that room so no need to worry about me not socialising with the parrot.

    Controlling noise from an IRN

    Hello! So I have been reading into trying to keep the noise down with an Indian ringneck. I am getting one next year! I know they are loud birds when they want to be and that is fine by me, not so much by my boyfriend but I have looked into other parrots and the loudness is the only downfall to...

    Hi there! I just adopted a green cheek conure on Wednesday. She is very used to me as I work at the store I got her from.

    My pineapple conure, Polly is around a month old. It's not even a week since she's here at my place. She's my first ever parrot, rather pet so I've had no experience dealing with animals at home.

    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...

    Apartment noisy at night

    I have a lineolated parakeet as a pet. I'm also housing two budgies for a few months for a friend. I just moved into an apartment that's above a restaurant and bar. It's noisier than I thought it would be at night, until about 2 in the morning when it closes. It's about as loud as if a noisy...

    Why He Scream

    From the moment I got my Mochi, my green cheek conure, he's always been pretty quiet. I know that green cheeks are considered the lowest noise-level conures, but even then he has been a very silent speaker. Of course half of the time he's usually quacking, or what I like to call a little...

    How do parrots react to construction noise and vibration

    Hi, We have small to medium-sized parrots such as cockatiels, lovebirds, conures, Quaker parakeets and an Indian Ringneck. Some of the cockatiels are quite sensitive to noise and other disturbances and have fairly frequent night frights. We live out in the country, and the existing well doesn't...

    Noise level and routine for a sun conure?

    Hi everyone. I have been considering adding a sun conure to the family, moreso as my own pet rather than a true family pet (my mum is nervous around birds), and I wanted to get some advice from some experienced bird owners. As I have been told many times that sun conures are noisy, I...
