Can Birds Talk?

Filed under: Bird Care,Seasonal,Store News — admin @ 3:17 pm

YES!   That does not mean they will.

Every member of the parrot family can learn to speak just like you do regardless of what language you speak. New research has demonstrated that birds communicate with their chick even before it hatches out of the shell so the birds that we raise in our homes that hear us all the time are a good bet for learning language. Since we usually hand raise our babies, they are even more promising.

Right now we have Mr Bubbles in the store. He is a Red Fronted Kakariki who greets us in the morning with a delightful Good Morning and then goes on into his complete repertoire. It sure starts the day off right. Come meet him while he is still here.
