I am really surprised that at age 7 or 8 (re-homed so not sure) Buddi has started screaming. It has been getting worse and correlates with increased hormonal behavior during this winter, which is unusual,as it usually occurs in Spring.

I took her to AV last month for hormone implant and blood work was normal as well.Screaming frequency still increased and now she has a small wound under her wing that I thought was a blood feather she pulled. But she just keeps picking at this thing.

I cant get into the AV until the 25th (in the wrong line of work)and was wondering if anyone has any experience with the (natural) herbal "calming" stuff on the market? Local bird store has a product called Ahhh! Supposed to help with anxiety and screaming...Thanks in advance for any help...

Or has anyone used any other holistic treatment?

I have know of some people who have tried some of these products with varied success. Avicalm in water helped a grey I knew but did nothing for Cassie except give her horrible diarrhea. Talk with the vets office about what they suggest to use until you are able to bring her in.

We tried "Pluck No More" in Harry's water (RB2). We thought it was working, but when doing comparisons...don't really think it did. Providing lots of toys and things to do seemed to help most.

Susanne is right increasing activity does more than anything else. Burning off the excess energy really helps Cassie. I just have to be careful because as she becomes excited the chance of a bite will increase. We find lots of "hands" free activities for her.
