    So, I rehomed a few of my silkies to a neighbor down the road because a coon got her. Well, now I have this one silkie that is almost a month old and is to small to be out in the big bird cage, so it does get lonely. Well, we bring it in and mess with it so its not so lonely, and goodness does it not shut its beak!
    you get the low little chirps and it just wont end, even when its drifting off to sleep! How do I get this bird to stop?
