Sitting on the front steps
- Real Name
My cockatiel has taken to shrill screaming all day long, regardless of if I am near her or away. She has toys of every kind and a large cage and is free to leave and enter her cage as she pleases all day long (cage door is always open). I assume that her screaming is related to her being hungry because I have noticed that she is not very interested in food lately, but she still refuses to eat anything I give her. I have made no changes to her diet; she still has her staple (everyday) pellets and I have also been offering other brands of pellets and her favorite foods (seeds, eggs, etc.) but she is still not eating. I have a vet visit scheduled for 3 days from now (soonest I could get) with her avian vet but I am worried that they won’t have any advice because I’ve taken her in for this kind of thing before to no avail. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations regarding this? She is still perfectly active, just screaming constantly and not eating.
