Post: 3-year-old Quaker afraid of everything
Posted by Rhonda on 3/05/05
Can anyone offer advice for a Quaker parrott that is afraid
of everything. I've tried everything to introduce new toys,
perches, etc., into or outside the cage, but the bird goes
ballistic with a temper tantrum. It may calm down after a
bit, but pays absolutely no attention to the new
introduction or is incredibly aggressive towards the new
addition. This bird is also what would be called a screamer.
It has the ability to say about 10 words, but now refuses to
learn anything new. By refuses, I mean when you try to work
on new words, it replies by beginning the "echo" game, i.e.,
it says pretty-pretty to everything you say to it or just
squawks. It's very stubborn.
