New bird mom here.....my 2 darlings came from a home where they were in a cold, dark room for 2 months. Before that they were in a car for a month. When I found them they were so quiet. Now they chatter and "talk" to one another. They especially seem to like when I'm in the room and really chatter up a storm. My question is, how much should they vocalize? I talk to them all the time and play the radio when I'm gone. Am I doing the right thing? They've been through so much and I want them to be happy.
Your new birds are so privileged to be with you! My 2 1/2 year old loves to sing to me and chatter. The 8 month old is just starting to 'notice' me. I am usually home in the evenings but if I am out and have been out since the morning, they get a bit spooked and won't eat. Then when I get home and call their names they answer but still won't eat until the next day!
