Welcome to the site Shawna! It isn't that busy now, but...
I have a female Red Belly. She is an absolute delight,
always has been, since the day I brought her home. She is
a "Mama's girl".
As you said, each bird is different, and I am sure that there
are Red Bellies who have a very large vocabulary. I know of
one on another board I used to visit. That bird had at least
50 words it knew and used.
Mine (Darby is her name) says "I love you", "Go nite nite"
and a couple other things, that were just learned because I
say them to her when I put her to sleep, but I never
actually "teach" her words. She does get a lot of out of
cage time and lots of hands on affection.
Good luck, they are wonderful birds! Enjoy her..:)
