How Loud are Alexandrines?

Post by lchristine02 » Fri Dec 10, 2010 6:32 pm

I have a male indian ringneck and I am considering getting a male alex but was worried about the noise. My IRN is not very loud but he has his moments of the classic call. I was just wondering if the alexandrines are more like a sun conure that they just scream all day or is it just moments when they get excited? Thank you for any response!

education .

Thanks for your reply! So by bird education you mean how I train and react to the screams?

yes , you got it ! when he screamed i never reacted , when he is speaking nicely or not making any noise , i speak to him , take him out , play with im give im a treat , but i never react in any manner when he is screaming loudly .

I can hear Mika when im in the car driving out my driveway and the house is locked up. He doesnt do it all the time and its not a normal contact call, he either barks or yells Julie. They can be really loud but they are also quiet too. Mika likes to talk alot and is more talk than squark.

Our Alexandrine gives about three loud squawks per week, and an occasional "bahk!" when he's been surprised by something unpleasantly (e.g. if you pick him up when he's not expecting it). He does a lot of very quiet "purring" and some very quiet muttering to himself. He only says one phrase, "come on!" which he says about twice a month. He's the quietest bird I've ever encountered. I'm not sure if this is typical of the species, but this is how ours is.
