I've heard about that method. It supposedly works for dogs but I am too scared and doubtful to try it with my own birds. I've captured and placed some of their words on cue, but sometimes when they're alone, they'll still talk regardless of whether or not I give the cue. If anyone tries this, please let me know how it goes.
