    Deb: Yes! My girly Green Cheek Says Pretty Birdie, Pretty Bird,
    Pretty Pretty Pretty, Whistles, kisses, and says her
    name "Cricket" or Pretty Cricket. She lived in a country store
    as a pet, that is why I think she started so young 'around 1'.
    She also lays beside me on her back in the bed. She's pretty
    clear in her words, unless she's screaming it. In her nighttime
    cage, she is very good at pronouncing her words.
