Is your parrotlet trained to talk? What does it say?

Our Sam never learned to talk. Not sure why. He did mimic sounds though. He'd imitate laughs, our budgies' chirps, and a squeaky sound we made (it's hard to describe).

What did your parrotlets do?

Skweek is starting to "talk". He says "skweeker". He seems to have a few different vocalization. He chatters to himself, screams when I leave the room and "peeps' when he's cuddling, like a chick. He also has this funny "growl" when he runs up to my head and nips at my temple. Too cute.

I've only had Baby Blue for a short time so, of course, he hasn't started any talking yet. But he makes this reallys strange "clicking" sound when he's on my shoulder. I don't know if he's mad or happy...Laugh.

Bruce has learned tons of words in the past year and a half. The funniest is when he hangs upside-down on the bars of his cage. He says:
"who's upside down?
meeeeeee!"
Then laughs hysterically. When I laugh back, he laughs even harder.

He also knows
"who's the baby?"
"bruce is the baby"
He learned to say "mommy mommy mommy mommy" as I was leaving for work. (makes me want to stay home)
"peekaboo"
"baby bruce"
"brucepants" (dont ask) :)
And when he's being noisy he tells himself "shhhhhhh"

That's so funny! I'd love to see that. :D I like how he laughs even harder if you laugh. That's cute.

My bird says about 15 words/phrases. His most common are as follows:

Quito, Quito Sindelar, Martin, Cyndee, Bye Bye (in Czech), Pretty bird, Little bird (in Czech), come (in Czech)

He also makes a very realistic kissy sound and laugh. He also has "conversations" in what sounds like made up English. This usually occurs when you are talking to him in multiple long sentences.

Bean will 'squeak' when we are sweeping the floor.
His best sound is his chicken imitation which is very hard to catch on film but I got one in the first few seconds of the following clip.

He will sometimes say 'doo dee doo deee doo' when I bounce him on my finger but that is rare and only witnessed by my husband twice so at least he believes me.

Hey, I got Bean to squeak!

I wish I could hear all the other plets in this group talk.

Has anyone tried to upload recordings of their birds?
I recently found this site that might have the answer. If you have a recording of your birds talking you can upload files to share for free.

http://www.wikiupload.com/

Go here to download Bean squeaking:

Oh and if you find a better hosting site, I'd be open to changing. This was just the first I came across. It seem a little clunky.

How old was he when he actually began talking? How did you get him to say so many different things? How did you get him to dance/sing/spin? I have only had Oliver for a couple months and need all the help I can get in order to teach him to talk and do tricks.

Of course, you just may have an unusually smart/talented bird.

I have an 8 month old male that started saying 'Hello' and some other longer saying, but I couldn't make it out - this was the other weekend but he hasn't said a word since !! :(

I haven't heard of any females that talk but Im' guessing they have the ability. Like most other parrots, I guess the males do most of the talking. Talking, talking, talking to them is the key....they repeat what they hear.
And they love "happy". Be animated, like you are talking to a small child...they love that!

I have a two and a half year old male parrotlet (Petri) that I've had for about eight months now. He started talking a couple of months ago and now he just won't stop chattering!

He says:
Turn around
He's a good bird
That's a pretty bird
He's such a good bird
He's a pretty Petri

Sooooo, yeah. He seems to be quite stuck on himself ;-).
