    Good afternoon just recently got some button guails.
    I had three and had to change one for another. I was told the two males would fight when older
    When I did this, the male has become more vocal, even tho they don't fight at all
    He just calls and growls more often.
    The female I have is a a silver one who has a Bib but doesn't have that extra white line to define the gender like two other silver ones I saw, so I thought it was safe to think it was female. Zelda (the new female) often lays with everyone and never makes any noise same with Luna (the black and white female I had before getting zelda) and then there is our trouble maker. Lucifer he climbs ontop of the house to pew pew for a good 30 mins sometimes an hour or less. I am unsure why that is as they all lay together and never fight.
    Is he just a vocal bird? He never did it before when I had Loki (the other male) he started 2 weeks after getting the new female (zelda) if pictures are needed. I can post some.

    Lol well when he had another male with him he didn't do that. And now that he has two females it seems like he loves to pew and growl randomly
    He was so quiet before.
