Have you ever had a parakeet or other bird that talks for a pet, and if so, what did it say?


I had a lot of parakeets growing up for pets. The only thing we could ever teach them to say is "Hello", so I was wondering if you had a parakeet or other bird that could be taught to talk, what were you able to teach your bird(s) to say? Thank you for sharing..

    Hi Ann, Thank you so much for sharing all about Coco ... hahaha what a hoot as we say here in the South! He was a multi-talented bird, and I know you both miss him terribly. Coco sounds like a one of a kind bird!

    Hi John (Jodah), hee hee ... what a talented, dancing and talking galah. Cocky was certainly cocky LOL. That is sweet about him allowing you to scratch him. Did he actually get a cup of tea to drink LOL? Yes, they can live a long life. Thanks!
