Welcome to the forum a cockatoo screaming? Perfectly normal and to be expected too. Don't reward him for screaming whatever you do

I try not to reward him for screaming just seems strange to me as he used to be pretty quiet now the only time he is quiet is when i take him to my bedroom to give my ears a rest

to the forum! So you say you've had your bird for around 2 years? If your bird is around 2 years of age, s/he is reaching sexual maturity so changes in behavior are normal as his hormones change and reach a new balance. So some moodyness, screaming, and potential aggression along the way. The catch is to know that it's very similar to teenagers, so it will pass. Just be patient and consistent and s/he will mellow out in time

Re: hi im new

Depends how old he was to start with. RB2s mature around 3yrs+


** I'll edit that - they CAN according to some people in but 3-4 is normal range.

That's a really good site and most UK pairs sold are 4 or 5

Has anything else changed recently or do you know how old it was when you got it?

You could try making a post in the large parrot or behavior and bonding forums to get more responses.


To be perfectly honest I'd be worried about an RB2 that didn't get a little vocal when excited. Sydney has a little 30min scream fest every day to burn some energy! It's probably perfectly normal but start a new post in one of those forums I've mentioned along with it's actual age and we an advise you more
