Most birds are social animals and prefer to be around other birds and/or people. They require a significant amount of socialization on a daily basis. Birds that are left to themselves without companionship can develop a wide array of unacceptable and sometimes harmful behaviors. Excessive vocalization (screaming) and feather picking are among the most common. The longer a bird displays these behaviors, the harder they are to correct. Please call our office to schedule an appointment/consultation for ways to treat and address behavioral problems.
