Noises

Recommended Posts

Hi all, ive had my baby congo for 2 weeks now he is very lively eats very well and loves playing he is now 14 weeks old, but i am not sure if i should be worried or not sometimes not all the time makes noises like a cough or trying to sniff and then he carrys on as normal. I asked the breeder and he said its fine and ask if he done it when he saw me because he gets excited, but i have also heard it some other times im just not sure what sort of noises parrots do as im new to birds any advise would be great, thanks kerry

Hi I'm pretty new to parrots myself, had my CAG for 5 weeks now. My mate knows about parrots and gave me advice on things that will happen that can scare and one of them was the strange breathing they can do when they are excited - even though I still worried like mad, it sounded like she was running out of breath!!!!

Like I say I'm pretty new myself but there are a lot of experienced people on here that are really helpful, so try not to worry.

Hope it's ok

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Parrots do make a variety of noises so it is really hard to answer your question 100% one way or the other .... sorry.

 

What I can say is to keep an eye out for other behaviours that go with the noise as this will help you pin down whether the bird is making a copied sound heard somewhere or if he is actually coughing/sniffing.

 

Greys naturally make a powder to help groom their feathers (they get it from a gland just above their tail) and this can literally get up their nostril and tickle or make them sneeze. The same goes for tiny bits of feather that might get in and irritate ..... it is normal to see a Grey gently picking their nose so to speak with one of their claws.

sometimes,babies in certain circumstances ,say for instance in excitement can make little "uff uff" noises,we have a baby with us at the moment,and i can video him doing this for you and add it to my photobucket so you can watch it and compare,maybe you could do the same too,we can compare and see if this is whats happening :D

Watcha Kerry, I never realised this was you! (Kerrys son used to go to school with mine and we had a few parroty chats before Billy changed schools when we moved).

 

Glad you finally got your birdy. Im sure they are the normal noises associated with babies, as I said in my PM.

 

I feel a visit coming on very soon to see your new arrival :)

 

OOOOOh Im all excited, Ive not had a proper real life fellow parroty friend before... they are all cyber!! :):)
