Bertie just talking about Bertie things…

Any advice on getting him to actually talk? To say hello, pretty bird, good boy, give me a kiss, etc? These parrots apparently can talk…

It’s all about repetition and focus.
Make sure that he isn’t distracted by anything and repeat the word or phrase every few seconds for a minute or so.

do this several times a day. I try just in my normal course of handling :)

It could take days, weeks…or never in some cases. 100% up to him and what he feels like saying ;)

Yeah. That’s pretty much consistent with what I read. I’m hoping he’ll decide to talk.

Now that I’m off work for the holidays for a few days, I can spend some more time with him and the budgies.
