Bird Training That Is Easy!
Dear Parrot Lover,
Can you imagine the surprise on your friend’s faces when, while visiting you, your parrot all of sudden starts talking and joins in your conversation?
“Polly said what?”
Beaming with pride you’ll have to explain that your parrot is so smart that she learned to talk and carry on conversations with you.
But how do you know if your parrot is smart enough to learn to talk in the first place? And how do you teach her to talk and have a conversation?
Well, firstly, all parrots are very intelligent creatures; more so than what we humans sometimes give them credit for. Typically speaking, the larger the parrot, the smarter they are and the better their aptitude for learning to talk and do other tricks. If you want a parrot to talk purchase an African Grey, Macaw, Amazon or Cockatoo as these have the largest propensity to speech. However, smaller parrots such as Conures and Cockatiels can often be taught to talk as well.
So now that you know what species of parrots can talk, you just have to learn how to teach your parrot to talk. Do not be too intimidated by this process. It can be fun for both you and your parrot if you learn a few basic steps first.
The first major point to keep in mind before starting any type of training session with your parrot is to make sure that you have plenty of patience. You may want to have your parrot speaking a few words almost immediately but do understand that it may take a while, sometimes a few weeks of solid training before that will happen. The more your parrot trusts you and the better your rapport with your parrot, the faster she will learn to talk.
Since parrots typically have the intellectual capability of a two to three year old toddler, not only can they learn to talk just like a toddler can, but they can also be subject to tantrums that toddlers usually have as well. Therefore, having lots of patience with your parrot is the best way to begin any type of training session.
The next thing to remember is to keep your parrot’s training sessions short, sweet and straight to the point with lots of fun and games thrown in for good measure. The more fun a parrot can have, the faster they will learn! Keep the sessions between 20 and 30 minutes each. Once you’ve realized that your parrot no longer has any interest in their training session, then it is time for the session to end. Do not force your parrot to continue with the session; allow your parrot to set the pace of the training.
Begin by only teaching your parrot to say just one or two words. You can slowly
start adding in more words to your parrot’s vocabulary as the training sessions progress. Always pronounce the words very clearly to help your parrot to be able to learn them and repeat them. Soon you’ll be able to teach your parrot to have a conversation by repeat whole phrases.
