Default Teaching your budgie to talk

I have taught a budgie to talk before so here are a few tips:

* Choose a young bird.

* Males are generally better talkers than females.

* Keep him on his own.

* Ladies voices are higher pitched so the bird will have less trouble mimicking the sound.

* Choose an easy first word, like the bird's name. eg. Bobby.

* Repeat the word more each day saying it in the same pitch.

* After about a month, the bird might start saying the word whilst chirping, don't expect it to be clear though.

* When your bird has no trouble saying the word you are ready for another one.

* When your bird becomes chatty teach him sentences.

* You will not have to repeat the words so much now and your bird might start saying anything he hears!

* Your bird might get muddled up and come out with nonsense. eg. tea on the roof ELEPHANT Joey hello!

Have fun and post if you get your budgie talking!

Those are some good tips. I'm going to move this to the Budgie Articles forum.

Very good tips!! I'll also add that males generally make better speakers but females can still sometimes talk. It's also easier to teach a tame budgie to talk because they seem to pick up words faster if you talk to them lip to beak or as close as you can get.

Thanks for the tips! I have been repeating "Hello" and "Kiki" to Kiki since I got her back in November. I have been thinking that she has been trying to say "hello" for a couple days now but she said it clearly once today!

Hold the phone here! You can teach your budgie how to actually TALK? Like a parrot, or some secret budgie language? No, seriously. You can teach your budgie to talk? Tell me how! Tell me how! (Please)

Yeah, budgies are fantastic talkers if you put the time in. They can even be taught full sentences or parts of songs.
