Re: Raven is getting confused with words

George the YCA would mix up some of his words and phrases. Sometimes "Polly want a cracker" came out as "Polly wacker." "Pretty bird" he extended into "Pretty bird-ird" now and then. He'd also sometimes say "Want a parrot cracker" and "Pretty cracker."

"The more I get to know people, the better I like my
parrot... "
