Re: is this myth true or False?

I would have to say that's false even though I've never owned a IRN. The pair of conures I got were breeders and they were 3-5 years old. One of them was fairly easy to tame and started to talk for us at a older age. To me they can learn to talk at any age just depends on if they want to or not. On the pair of conures, even though I was able to tame one, the other one I was never able to tame down as long as they were housed together. The other untamable one never did speak.
