Q: Does anyone have a talking parakeet?
I've read you can sometimes teach them to talk, but no luck here. If yes, did you get the bird as a baby?

My dad has a parakeet that could talk. He even taped him saying "Pretty Bird" and "Kiss Kiss". It wasn't very clear but you could make out what the bird was saying. I have two parakeets right now and neither of them says a word. I hear that you need to get a young one - before they molt. I sometimes see young parakeets at PetCo - they are the ones with no white on their heads and very thick black stripes. Definitely, a male parakeet and you need to spend a lot of time with him. Parakeets are flock birds and get lonely by themselves. That is why I gave up on my male parakeet and got him a girlfriend!
