Default budgie clamors before flight

hi, sorry for my bad english in advance, its not my mother tongue. I have bought two very young budgies. I have built them a playground on the top of the shelf. One of the budgie has a behaviour I dont understand. He clamors for hours. Specially before starting to a flying round. The other one is not so. He never had done this. I dont want to give the naughty one away, but dont know what he wants, what I have to do to stop that. You can hear it here:
Vocaroo | Voice message

it makes me angry after some minutes so I leave the room, but you can hear it in the kitchen very well too. Also beeing afraid about the neighbors.

Welcome to the forums,

Your budgie's behaviour is perfectly normal and in that specific context, your budgie is simply showing his enthusiasm for being out of the cage and enjoying his out of cage activities. Budgies are birds and birds will sing, that's part of their very nature.
I'm sorry the flock calling, screeching and singing makes you angry when in fact it should do the exact opposite because budgies sing when they're happy and when all is well in their world: Let them sing!

If the different chirps and singing done by your budgies aggravate you so much and you aren't able to cope with this on a long-term basis, then rehoming your budgies to someone who is fully able to tend to them and actually enjoy their singing will be a good choice.

Hi! to Talk Budgies

aluz is correct and I agree with her 100%.

You should never become angry or frustrated with your budgie simply because it is acting in the manner which is normal for a bird.
If the noise bothers you, then you should rehome the budgies to someone who is able to give them the love, attention and care they deserve while allowing them to be exactly who and what they are.

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

You'll find most of your basic questions about budgies and caring for them will have been answered after you've read through all of them.

Budgies are (very small) parrots but with voices that compared to most parrots, are very mellow most of the time. The chatter that you're hearing is perfectly normal and says that they are feeling fine & are happy noises. As Aluz mentioned if this amount of noise is too much for you, you might look into rehoming them. Give yourself
and them a chance first.

wait wait..you are acting as if I would hate my birds? I love them, care for them, speak with them for hours. Feed them, they are free to fly around the whole day in my room. And you know how much dirt and poo they do. I am cleaning the whole day, but Im happy if they are.

the one budgie giving this sound, is the only one. I have three birds. So why do the others not act like that ift its sooo normal??? he does this for hours, and then suddenly he stops. Its for me like he is beeing annoyed by something. I want to help him and me too by solving his problem.

of course I do love all the sounds they give, chirping and singing, but this is not singing. So pls...

Members responded to what you wrote in your initial post.
It is important that you be completely clear about the issues when asking for advice.

In your initial post you specifically stated that the noise makes you angry and you are thinking about giving the "naughty" budgie away.
The budgie is by no means being "naughty" - it is simply being a budgie.

The squawking noise the budgie makes in the video clip IS normal.
Some budgies make that noise, others don't.
Just because your other birds do not make the noise doesn't mean it isn't a normal noise for budgies to make.
The noise doesn't have to mean anything.
Sometimes budgies make particular noises just because they want to.

You mention you have three budgies.
Do all three get along and play together or is the one that is squawking left out, bullied or picked on?
Oftentimes with three birds, one ends up being the "third wheel". If that is the case with this budgie, it
may be squawking to left everybirdie know it isn't happy and wants attention.

How Do I stop my Bird from Screaming?

Let them sing!

Best wishes!

Deborah gave a good explanation above . I realize you are not a native English speaker, and some words might translate differently. However, as was explained above, people were only reacting to the literal meaning of the words without further detail in your initial post. I hope you understand . I wish you all the best with your birds!

thank you. Very interesting links. So others found it also disturbing. I had always budgies, but no one sreamed for so long. Did you never had the issue while you were on the phone talking?

I love every sound they do, I wished they would sing the whole day through. I will try the tricks in the link suggested. And he is not the third wheel or so, he is the boss. He never sreams late afternoon or evening. If I open the cage a little later then usual, he starts to sream while beeing in the cage. This means open the cage, so its a sound that tells me, something is not allright, something bothers me, I want something.

So there has to be a reason for this sound, am I wrong?

Some budgies are just more vocal than others. My male English budgie is VERY noisy a lot of the time. It seems like at least a couple times a day, he will scream and scream in his loudest voice possible on and on continuously for many minutes. He's happy, nothing is wrong. Some budgies are just like that.
