Re: Raven is getting confused with words

That's funny. My mom has a 10 year old Princess of Wales parakeet, and when I first heard that he was a talker it surprised me, as I didn't think such a species would talk. He's pretty good at mimicking when he wants to, but he does a lot of that running words together as a long sentence that doesn't make sense. I love to hear his funny voice though.

One thing that always makes me laugh is Raven's definitions of the word "vegetable". One of the times he says it is when you give his fresh food dish. Sometimes he'll experiment saying it in different ways or real high pitched. It's hilarious. He also says "vegetable! vegetable!" when he means to say 'get away unless you want me to make you bloody!'
