    I have tried to calm my birds and keep them happy but I seemed to have spoiled them SOMEHOW. They want music played for them more and more everyday and when I turn it off they squawk at me. Does any one know if this is just a passing thing or is it set in stone now with them. They are well behaved birds but get high strung when I don't play music.

    You are the human. You get to be in charge. You are smarter than your chickens. Right now they have you trained. Just like kids they have trained you by making a fuss when they don't get their way. Now it's time for you to start acting like the boss. If you don't want the music on, don't turn it on. If they squawk, let 'em squawk. They'll get over it in time.

    I remember seeing him sing and his looks alone could frighten you, the voice was something altogether another kind of off the wall!!! Tiny Tim isn't a name too many people bring up.[​IMG][​IMG]
