    Hi Sandra... well I guess i will join in too!! I have my
    quaker Kiwi ..love of my life.. lol he says Hi, Hello, thank
    you, Please, Kiwi good boy, Kiwi bad boy, Meow....here kitty
    kitty kitty. Santa, Stop it, he kisses and mimics like when
    you stick your tounge out and make that noise, He says Bye bye
    sugar pie. and much more.. all I do is just keep talking to
    him every day... and then you can tell he practices and then
    it just comes out.. One time he even said a swear word..I did
    not encourage that and have never heard it again.. so with age
    I think so just keep going and talking to your little love and
    one day it just takes you by surprise.. I am working with my
    mustache now . Hopefully she will surprise me.. My Jenday does
    not say anything and My Goffin just mimics kissing.. ? So
    needless to say Kiwi is the talker here. Good luck let us
    know.
