How To Teach A Parrot To Talk

Pets : Birds

Many people who keep parrots seem to think that from day one it will repeat everything they say, parrot fashion, and such like.

The actual truth is that it can take a long time and the bird may not talk at all.

The best time for a parrot to learn is when its about 4 months old. The best way is to teach through habit - therefore 'hello' first thing in the morning is a good idea each day.

Repeat a small set of key words or phrases - say ten or so, and over time the parrot should begin to repeat.

One of the best ways to encourage parrots is with nice treats when they copy you correctly.

Over time you can even try to associate - for instance move the bird down when you say down and such like.
