AG screaming in the morning.
« on: February 20, 2015, 09:40:18 AM »


I am hoping for some advice.

Reyna, our AG spends around 20 minutes screaming in the morning. She mimics every annoying sound she has ever heard perfectly, and loudly. What should I do to encourage this behaviour to go away?

I am afraid I have made a mistake by leaving Reyna out of her cage for the most part of the day and only really putting her away at night. I have recently tried to get her to spend more time in her cage in hope that she will become a little better behaved.

When she screams, should I put her back in her cage and only get her out when she stops?

Thanks for the help.

Hi and welcome from me
When you say screaming, is she screaming or just copying the noises you dislike ?
Out can try walking away , give no attention and then when she does a noise you like then react and praise
This hasn't happened overnight so it's not gonna fix overnight but you will need to be strong and consistent x

Whatever your doing today, do it with a smile and remember, there are thousands of people who would want to be in your shoes

i smile cause you have all finally driven me insane!
