In my defense I had to go to work, and yes I put in cage before I left.

Not growling. Is one of the lovey dovey sounds, i want to be with you.

At least in my experience. They all make that weird sound when hanging out with me. They all make to each other when hanging out snd happy.


She definitely loves you. So sweet

When they are mad its a heck o lot of screeching

But truly well trained by your Parrots!

Clearly, you need to be working from home. Having all your supplies delivered to your home. And, make the transition to 24 /7 Parrot care specialist.

Love your Parrots and the video's!

Not growling, 100% not growling. They have several love or happy sounds. They can purr, happy chirp ect.

I call that one croaking lol.

When she is mad at you, if she can ever bring herself to be, lol, so in love with you, you will know.

Pm if you want , give me your number I will send yiu all of mine making that sound tomorrow! Lol sometimes one starts then all 3 do it

She was begging you not to leave

In heart beat!!! She is one Gorgeous girl! You and her tho, seem to be such a love match!

Just remember all that crazy cage territory aggression and screeching, loosing their minds, as soon as they step out of the cage, they chill. Hormonal season, you might have to give a few seconds out of the cage for them to relax and be you baby again.

They are not GCC

Now that hormones are coming down i can walk over sbd take them out without all the high "drama "
A couple if weeks ago the screaming started when I was a foot away!

Our quaker makes kissy noises when she wants my wife and says "beak" when she wants me. If we ignore her, she climbs down off the perch and stomps over to us (it's amazing than a 100 gram bird can stomp).
