Different reasons why a parrot would stop talking

Why Parrots Stop Talking
Changing the timbre of the voice
A change in the timbre of the voice such as squeaky, hoarse voice, the timbre of high voice, or unusual sounds, can be due to an infection of the respiratory system which can affect the trachea, the syrinx, the bronchi. We can think here of aspergillosis (a fungus which settles in the trachea and blocks the passage of air ), contagious disease, and more and more widespread in our countries. It can also be due to bronchitis, airbag infection or pneumonia to name a few. The parrot may also have swallowed a small piece of toy or food that is stuck in the windpipe near the syrinx. Lots of possibilities, too much to take a chance.
Whether it is for an unusual silence or a transformation of the voice, it is better not to delay to consult your veterinarian, especially if these modifications have lasted for more than 24 hours. This kind of emergency requires immediate intervention, as the situation can escalate quickly.
