I had one budgie that was talking when I was a kid, he was very sweet. He was also coming up with his own combination of words. The funny thing is, budgies mimic the word exactly the way you say it. So my budgie was saying the same word with two different tone (more serious tone, like you are reading the word) and like he is calling out a person (softer and sounded like he is calling out someone), because I used to say the same word in 2 different ways sometimes and he picked it up on his own, I did not spend time to teach him. I was just saying it when I walk by his cage. I has no clue he would actually pick it up. He was my only talking budgie.
I am so glad to share with you all that Cloud said his first word yesterday. He is talking! I am so happy to hear him talking, cute lil babie Turns out the sounds he was making were him trying to talk. I also caught him whistling and making kissing sound as well
Oh he is so smart, he picked up another word already, he says "My Dear". He picks up very quickly. Now, I have to be careful with my language around him lol He can pick up anything at this point. He keeps repeating the words to himself even when he is almost sleeping, words became a part of his chirping. I am so glad I get to share my happiness and excitement with other budgie lovers and so glad such nice of a forum exists. My happiness for Cloud being such a smart boy grows as I share it with you guys!
