Re: Quaker talking ability

Thanks for the info. I think little Isaac still wants to be a
baby, so maybe later this year he might start to talk a bit
more. The sun conure looks as if she wants to talk by moving
her beak when I'm talking to her, but Isaac doesn't do that
yet. Unfortunately the words he says is 'that's bad', learning
from the sun repeating me, because she is always being naughty.
Now I have the evidence that Isaac should be able to talk soon.
He does the chatter thing when he's content and sitting in the
cage, which is when he he says some of the words the sun conure
says. He's main hobby at the moment is trying to clean peoples
Have a good weekend,
