Baby Advice - Noise and Chewing


Remember, larger birds tend to have louder voices and in the category of loud voices would fall Macaws, Cockatoos and Amazons. They are certainly the more excitable of parrot species and generate considerable noise over relatively short periods throughout the day. The quieter species of parrots are headed by the African Grey, Senegals, Jardines. African Greys tend to make melodious sounds and very rarely screech. As a general rule of thumb, you could say that flat or apartment dwellers should stick to quieter birds as they have neighbours in the near vicinity. Owners living in rural areas can indulge themselves in the noisier species. Parrots generally chew quite heavily and this does not only apply to toys and perches but also your household furnishings if allowed access without supervision to your home. A parrot should never be allowed to roam the house without continuous supervision bearing in mind electric wires and other dangerous objects that may be picked up. Take care to ensure that doors and windows are securely locked and any chemicals such as cleaning fluids etc. are kept in a secure cupboard. One danger that is often overlooked are the toxic fumes that come from teflon pans. If a non-stick pan is allowed to dry off whilst boiling on a stove it issues fumes which almost certainly would kill your parrot. If your parrot cage is
normally in the kitchen, it is worthwhile removing the bird into another room during cooking activities.
