will my quaker parrot talk?

Postby tarah33 » Tue Sep 06, 2011 9:30 pm

I've had Teddy (green quaker parrot) for about....a month now. And he's about 4 months old. When will he start talking? I've been working on "hi baby!" And EVERY time I say tht in a very happy voice, he does his loud sqwauk (really cute) is this a good sign? Does he like what I say? I hear him making noises although I'm not sure what they are. They're very quiet, and he doesn't do them very often. :monk:

There are no guarantees that any parrot will talk, even the ones that are known for talking like a macaw or a cockatoo. But, if you talk to him every time and say "hi baby" whenever you walk in the room, he may copy you because he is used to hearing you. I wasn't even trying to teach my cockatiel to talk, but he just picked it up and now he can say "hello" and "good boy"! Good luck in training Teddy to talk and keep us posted!

I've had my Quaker Parrot for about a month and a half now, and while they don't start TALKING until they are about six months old, she is trying to talk though it does not sound much like it. But if you keep on trying, it is virtually guaranteed to talk.
