    They do like to talk but it will probably be only a couple of words or phrases. They aren't the best talkers when it comes to birds. But to get him to talk just keep repeating what you want him to learn. You could also make a recording of what you want him to say and play it over and over again while you are gone. They are good whistlers too!

    All birds will talk if it is a male. The females instincs make them quiet for nesting, They do this to not let the enemy know where they are. The males however learn to say many things. As with a child it takes time and patience. I try to start mine out with big bird. As I say the word over and over I also lift my arms and they learn to asscoiate the sound with the action. But they will not learn in a few days, you must be patient.

    Just talk to him lots. Repeat the same things over and over, as much as you can.

    Eg. 'Good boy' , 'Hello Spanky' etc etc.

    Start off simple, and he will eventually just pick up things you say a lot, and mimick the phone ringing and things. Just make sure he is always around people and things going on.

    Do you really want him talking you ear off all night!

    If he speaks the way you spell, you won't understand him.

    They will pick up at their own pace.

    Watch the bad words, like "I love you"" and pretty bird" and vile like that. LOL
