Default Mimic Me Bird Recording Unit by Prevue

Has anyone found that the Mimic Me Bird Recording Unit by Prevue is useful for teaching your parakeets to talk?

I have two new budgies about 3 months old. I have no other birds or pets or kids (except a Betta fish) so we pay a lot of attention to these new guys. We are new bird lovers since the love bird I reluctantly inherited from my Mom after she died. My husband and I never knew how much we could love and enjoy birds before!

I bought these birds from a breeder that "hand fed" them although looking back & reading on this web site about how to best buy birds, i think she had too many (30) for one person to hand feed properly.

Just discovered they are male and female from this helpful forum. The male in outdoor light has a lavender cere & the female is blue with white around the nostrils (We guessed it from their behavior any way!)

The male, Calvin, about once a day while in the cage, faces me with his back to the female & pays direct attention to me . While he is singing & chirping sweet little sounds to me, if the female, Hobbes comes close, he pecks her away! I'm amazed & absolutely thrilled that he gives me this much attention so soon! (Don't worry - they kiss each other enough all the other times, LOL! & They scuffle sometimes too!)

So I was thinking that since Calvin is giving me this attention & chirping with such cute sounds, maybe he could learn to talk a little even though i have two birds?

Hi April and to Talk Budgies!

Calvin and Hobbes sound very cute and we'd love to meet them if you have some pictures you'd like to share.

Keep in mind that behavior really is not a good indicator of a budgie's gender as each budgie is unique.
It sounds as if you've determined their genders properly from the cere coloration, however.

Since you are paying a lot of attention to Calvin and Hobbes daily, start saying a particular word or phrase to them multiple times throughout the day.
Simply having more than one budgie does not exclude the possibility of one or even both of them learning to talk.

You can try the Mimic Me if you think it will be helpful.
I believe the actual personal interaction of you speaking directly to your budgies will have better results however.
(I have the Mimic Me and have not found it to work with my budgies. Since every bird is different however, Calvin and Hobbes may be more interested in it than mine are.)

Please take the time to read through the Site Guidelines, all of the How To Guides, the FAQs, the Budgie Articles and the stickies located at the top of each section of the forum.

Truly, the very BEST advice anyone can offer you is to take the time to read ALL of the stickies throughout the various Talk Budgie forums as well as the Budgie Articles we have posted.

These are great resources for Talk Budgie members and have a wealth of reliable information which will assist you to learn the best practices in caring for your budgies for their optimal health and well-being.

When you upload pictures as thumbnail attachments directly from your computer, tablet or phone, the forum automatically defaults to landscape.

To upload full-sized pictures with the proper orientation, please use a photo-sharing service such as PhotoBucket and follow the steps in these instructions:
https://talkbudgies.com/how-guides/17...otobucket.html

For gender and/or mutation help - Lighting and Angle DOES matter

By the way, all photos entered in any of our forum contests must be a full-size photo and not a thumbnail attachment so it's good to know how to upload them!

If you have any questions after reading through everything, please be sure to ask!

Glad you decided to join us and looking forward to seeing you around the forums.

Hi there and to the forums!

I agree with Deborah's great advice Calvin and Hobbes sound like adorable little birds!

Be sure to read through links provided above, which contain the forum's many Budgie Articles and "stickies" (threads "stuck" to the top of each subform for easy reference) to stay up to date on all the best practices for caring for budgies. If you have any questions after reading through everything, be sure to ask as we'd love to help!

We look forward to seeing you around the forums, and meeting your budgies, too

Cheers!
