Hi welcome to the forum! What's your birds name? It wonderful that you are spending time together and working in teaching words.

Re: 3 year old Female Ringneck

Learning vocalizations is a very complex process. Some birds become exceptional talkers while others show little interest. Even African Greys, despite their legendary abilities, might not learn to talk.

I would believe whistling as attempt to speak is a good start!

Re: 3 year old Female Ringneck

Welcome to the community!

As Scott already mentioned above, there is no way to know whether or not any species of bird, or any individual bird for that matter, is ever going to be able to speak at all, or to what extent if they do start speaking. As Scott already wrote, there are many, many people who have purchased an African Grey parrot strictly because they wanted to be sure that they were getting a parrot who would talk; however, many African Greys never say a single word. And that goes for all species of birds.

The best way to encourage your bird to talk is to just keep doing what you're doing. It's all about repetition. He might start speaking more and more often very quickly, or it might take months to years, or he may not ever speak any more or any more-clearly than he already is. Only time will tell...

A really good example of a weird and uncommon parrot not only talking often but also talking very clearly is my Green Cheek Conure, Bowie. Green Cheeks are not at all known to be talkers at all, let alone good talkers, and I never even thought about him starting to talk when I brought him home as a baby, and I have certainly never made any effort at all to teach him to talk. However, at about 6 months old Bowie started to speak, and as time went on he started saying more words and phrases, and his voice and speech became incredibly clear. And now at 2 years and 4 months old, Bowie is the best talker in my house by-far, and he speaks every bit as clearly as my mom's African Grey (however clear Bowie is, he certainly cannot say nearly the amount of words and phrases that the CAG can, but he is as clear)...So it just goes to show that you never know what birds are going to be great talkers, and what birds are never going to say a word...But it's all about repetition and just continually talking to him every day...It does sound like he's coming along pretty well, and these are all good-signs that he'll continue to get better and better...Just don't be disappointed if he doesn't ever speak any more clearly than he is now, as it's not a "fault" or a "flaw", it's just who he is...

Re: 3 year old Female Ringneck

Welcome!

Ringnecks are a favorite of mine

Ringneck females can learn to mimic some sounds, and adult birds are capable of learning new sounds.


BUT

Female ringnecks usually do not speak words. Whistles and sound effects, sure, but WORDS are quite rare for female ringnecks. Iím
Sure talking females exist, but I have never met one, or met anyone who had one. In addition, MOST (not all) birds who are going to learn to talk will already be chatting up a storm by age 3.

So while your girl may learn to speak, I would suggest focusing on other aspects of your relationship with her

Well said SilverSage...

While you can't ever force or even really encourage your bird to talk more clearly or at all, what you can influence and change is your relationship with your bird and your bond to her, and her to you! Simply concentrate on making her life the best life a pet parrot can have, and giving her all of the love and attention that you can, and your bond with your bird will be so special and vital to you that you'll not care one bit whether she ever speaks another word again!
