All talking parrots start talking at a relatively early age. Either the parrot is predisposed to it or it is not. Repeating words and sounds is one of the most fascinating features of parrots. Parrots start talking because they want to get more attention from their hosts, to express themselves, to be part of their hosts’ flock, and some parrots talk because they just have fun.

Watching parrots talking on youtube is great fun. But to assume that if you buy a parrot of that species, it will speak in the same way is naive, because:

Hand-fed parrots are more likely to talk. They have a stronger bond with their owner and are therefore more likely to pick up his language. Untamed parrots speak less often.

Not all individuals of talking parrot species speak. The probability that a finch will not speak is higher than the probability that it will. The same is true for other parrot species. Among parrots of the same species, some speak perfectly well, others do not even try.

Manyel parrots try to repeat words and sounds, but in their own way. It is important to understand, notice and praise the parrot for trying. Then it will be more motivated to learn and practise. Pay attention to the sounds that parrots make before going to sleep, it is at bedtime that they repeat what they have learnt and tested during the day.

Parrot species that tend to repeat words:

It has been observed that Timneh parrots are less likely to speak than Congo parrots.

Macaws Only some individuals;

Cockatoo Only some individuals;
