Is it hard to train your African Grey parrot to mimic and speak?
Just be careful what you wish for - parrots look for any way to exercise their intelligence, often out of boredom in their unnatural environment. They don't need much coaxing to mimic the sounds around them.
No, it's not. In fact, they learn VERY quickly! They also learn what gets them the most attention. So, if you have a mouth that's, well, something similar to a sailor's, then they'll pick it up fast and then embarrass the heck out of you repeatedly, since you'll probably tell it "no" or make a big a fuss when it says something unpleasant.
Repetition is all it takes for a bird to learn a word, which to them is just like another bird sound, and Greys don't take long to learn a word at all!
