I have a hand reared indian ringneck male. He is 4 years old and I have had him since he was about 3 months old. He is constantly squarking when I'm at home. Running up and down the perch with his wings out. I've tried ignoring this and rewarding him when he's quiet, putting him in a small room on his own for a bit then only bringing him back in with us when he's quiet. I work all day, and I get him out for a cuddle every evening and he shares dinners with us. But he is driving me insane from the moment I get up. I can't feed him till he is quiet as it looks like I'm rewarding him when he's noisy if I do. I've run out of ideas. I don't know if he's maybe lonley during the day from me working but I have to work. Thought about getting him an Indian Ringneck friend but don't know if this would help and worried about the introduction period and whether another male or a female would be better. I have aspergers and sound sensitivity and at the moment he is causing me massive distress.
