Default Budgie is driving me insane

Hello! I've been away for awhile. I moved out of my boyfriends apartment back into my moms house, things didn't work out. However, the birds are now in a cat-free home!
My oldest budgie, Malygos, will NOT STOP SCREECHING! This is very unlike him, but even with the door to his room closed and headphones on, I can still hear him. He gives me headaches, and my mom is about done with him.
What can I do to get him to stop? I have no idea why he started doing this.
There are two females and one male in his cage with him.

Hi Taylor

I do commiserate with you about the screeching. Must be very stressful and frustrating.

I'm not an expert either, so can't make any positive suggestions, sorry. But it would be useful for you to read or retread the stickies at the top of this budgie bahaviour section here. They are relevant & interesting and think you will find them helpful with ideas of why your budgie might be doing the screeching.

Those who are more experienced with the problem will be along with advice soon. Good luck!

Your budgie is stressed and trying to let you know.

Do you spend much time with the birds?
Do you give them out of cage time?
How large is the cage?

I suggest you invest in some disposaable ear plugs.
I have three lovebirds that are much louder than any budgie when they all start screaming at one time. Yes, you can still hear them with earplugs but it is not something that will give you a headache.

Were your budgies all housed together in the same cage when you were living with your boyfriend?
How do they interact amongst themselves?
It would be good to pay close attention to try and figure out what is triggering this "incessant" screeching.

If there is animosity/fights between them, contributing to a stressful environment, your Malygos' may be expressing his displeasure by the increase in screeching. By housing your budgies on separate cages (two birds per cage considering each pair get along well), you may see a decrease on the frequency of screeches.

Hopefully soon Malygos will settle, calm down and be back to the normal singing with the occasional flock calls and screeches in between.

Greetings and welcome.I agree also with faerybee as well.it can be very stressful on your budgie and I'm sure for you as well,trying to adjust to a new environment.a lot of budgies handle stress in different ways.some get really depressed and some get aggressive and show it.I truly hope your budgie will eventually settle in and calm down soon.gentle talking and music,tv for your budgie may help it some as well.

Blessings and sending comforting prayers for you both.we're here if you need us.

You have been given a lot of advice on here so I would simply like to advise that you follow that and make sure you do what you can with calming your budgie down.
if you become anxious and annoyed by the screeching, that's not going to help your poor budgie.

I share a bedroom with 8 budgies and they do screech on occasion but whenever I have wanted to watch something with headphones on, I have been able too.

Without you doing your bit the problem will not sort its self out and I can not offer any more advice than what you have already been given. Good luck.

Smile budgie

Did any of the budgies bond with your former room mate? Are they flock calling for the missing room mate. are the hens or cocks expressing dominance? consider splitting by sex or by pairs to reduce competition. Are your birds calling for you. do you play music CD's regularly for them Play quiet music and music when it is ok to move to the beat and sing out.
Best wishes, Jo Ann
