Does your conure ‘talk’?

I know some do and others don’t but just wondering how many of our guys talk and what they say?
Luca doesn’t exactly talk but mimics the sound ‘love you’. It’s like you know what he’s saying.
He also mimics the kissing sound if he wants kisses!
Certain songs he will sing along to the tune too!
I’ll have to try and get a video!

Re: Does your conure ‘talk’?

I got quite excited when Syd was about a 1-2 yrs old. His vocabulary seemed to be growing almost daily, but now he sticks with just 4. 'I'm sorry, kisses, ok, baby'. He links them together appropriately which is sweet but although he listens carefully as I talk and repeat things to him I am not aware that he tries new words out in the way he used to. Having said all that, if he sees birds outside in the garden and particularly late afternoon he goes into overdrive with what sounds for all the world like a full on conversation. The inflections are appropriate, he includes all his human words and sometimes I feel certain that I can hear myself in his sounds. It might be wishful thinking I guess.

Aw that’s cute!
Luca is always babbling away but not in any formed words! Just sounds

Re: Does your conure ‘talk’?

My GCC Echo talks a little. Hello Boy, Hello Echo and Hello Cocky. No idea where he picked the last phrase up as we got him as a re-homed bird. He will use any combination of the words but seems to like using his own name the most. Especially if he wants your attention.

Re: Does your conure ‘talk’?

My Blue Crown Conure talked a lot. So far my jenday doesn’t talk, but does make whispery sounds when I whisper to him.
