    Radio static noise

    I remember someone saying something about outgrowing the radio static noise. How long does it take?? I give treats and he makes it while eating them. Is it just something younger tiels do?

    That's the noise baby tiels make when they are begging for food from their parents. Make sure your birdie is eating properly, and if he is, it's nothing to worry about. Your tiel might stil use this to beg for treats, but should grow out of it after a while...

    they may not ever grow out of it! many learn to carry it over into adult-hood and use it to demand attention/food/scritches etc... necroangle has an adult female (2 years old? not sure!) that still begs sometimes...
    it's not a problem as long as they're still eating, it's just another tiel noise! some stop, some don't.

    hmmm, the way mine does it, I have a feeling she's going to carry it over into adult birdie hood. Oh well, she HAS gotten so much better about it. It almost doesn't bother me anymore. Lol. She's a silly little thing. :b

    Panzer still makes that noise; she's almost 2 years old.
    Owl, as far as I've heard, has never made that noise; he's 1 year old.

    She makes the noise when she thinks I'm not preening her head enough, or if she thinks I'm eating something that I should be sharing.

    so does that mean females do it more?

    since most of the comments are related to females?

    It can happen regardless of sex.
