How can you stop screaming–excessive (Question from Quora)

Screaming is never excessive for a bird – they are merely communicating, it’s what they do.

Before I can answer your question I need to know the species, age, sex, the diet and a picture of the cage set up if at all possible – thank you.

Budgerigar parrot walking on the flat. Budgie

What kind of parrot should I get based on this schedule?

I wake at about 5:30AM and get ready for school. At 7:25AM i head off for school. After at about 2:00PM I get back home for lunch and do what I want for 2 and a half hours. I then do homework for 2 hours and then dinner and 1 hour of anything.

Our answer

You are a candidate for a budgie,  The most misaligned and underrated pet bird.  Budgies can be excellent talkers and great companions.

Rather than starting with the Romantic notion of a large parrot you can get great experience from a bird that is actually one of the better talkers of the avian world.

budgie hanging upside down from tinsel

I have recently purchased a new parakeet (Budgie)

As my beloved 7 yr old Sparky died. He is very young as the cere above his beak is just changing color from white to blue.

When I cover his cage at night he is on his top perch but when I get up in the morning Budgie is hanging upside down from the top of his cage. He has a perch high up but moves to the roof when I am sleeping. Any ideas?
