    Hi Megan,

    I bought a Yellow-Sided Green Cheek Conure about six months ago. At
    the time, he was only four months old - still a cute little baby. I
    already have an African Gray Parrot (talks like a machine!) and an
    aging cockatiel. I started talking with Miki, the conure, as soon as
    we got him home. Within a month, he was calling his name - "Miki"
    and lately, started saying "Give me a kiss" as well. He has a funny
    little voice but his words are pretty clear. I am a bird person
    going back to my teens, and I think Miki is the most entertaining,
    cutest bird I have ever seen. Not noisy, a little nutty, flips on
    his back all the time (very comical), takes very wet baths whenever
    possible, and loves human contact. Miki is a male.

    Good luck with your bird,
