- Green cheek conure
I have a green cheek (7 months old, gender unknown but we refer to him as he) who seems to hate going to bed. When we put him to bed we cover his cage and move it to a different room so he’s able to have quietness, we move him into a spare room at 8:20, give him a few treats, leave a hallway light on and leave the door slightly cracked so he’s able to adjust to it being somewhat dark, and then at 9 pm we shut his door very quietly and turn off the light. Except recently he’s been screaming for long periods of time as soon as we turn off the light, so far he has been screaming for the past 38 minutes and it is loud and it sounds like he’s crying or calling out to someone. It’s incredibly painful to just ignore, you can hear it even upstairs, anywhere in the house. We were told if your parrot screams it’s best not to acknowledge them, does anyone have any ideas on how we can get him to stop screaming? It would mean the world to us. He’s not getting enough sleep due to this.
