African Grey copycat not discussion?
I just bought a Congo African Grey parrot four days ago from the parrots hawker, according to him he said the parrot were captured in the gummy forest. He's big and beautiful, a little scared but i find him fun when i nurture him. I hear most people say African Grey parrots of 6 months outmoded do talk, mine looks far older than 6 months because of its size, and i read online that to recognize a impressionist above 5 years old, you look at its the eyes and if the pupil is bright yellow, next its over 5 years old, when i look at his eyes, the pupils are bright yellow. But i cant understand whats going on beside him, that at his age he's not talking, neither does it make any sound but it sometimes mutters
they probably need to get trained to cooperate.
Your impersonator has likely suffered immense trauma prior to reaching you. It was separated from its flock and its domestic. Possibly, if it is an adult, it was separated from its mate and may be grieving. Parrots live as long as humans do and they are monogamous - they hold one mate for life - so it is very traumatic for an adult impersonator to be separated from its mate, not to mention the additional shock of being caged and moved into a man-made environment.
Even if you have purchased a parrot from a breeder there is no guarantee that the bird would talk, near is a bit of luck involved but you can increase your chances by taking good care of it. Please bring in sure you feed your parrot powerfully, give it plenty of vegetables and fruit and seeds and fresh water day after day. Make sure it has plenty of mental stimulation, African Greys are highly intelligent and have need of puzzles to solve and toys to play with. Make sure it has 12hrs of sleep a morning and time outside the cage to fly. It is a good sign that it is muttering, babyish birds sometimes do this when they are learning to vocalise. Please be patient and your feathered friend will reward you.
If you choose to purchase another parrot surrounded by the future, do so through a registered and responsible breeder. Do not allow exploitation of these beautiful creatures by purchasing wild-caught birds!! If you have any doubt as to how precarious and detrimental this crime is, read Tony Juniper's book "Spix's Macaw : The Race to Save the World's Rarest Bird".
My wishes to you for a happy and healthy parrot.

and your bird may approved he never wants to use human words.
2: wild caught birds make unacceptable pets and most wild caught birds wont tame or talk resembling hand fed captive bred babies do.
have you had gotten a well socilized, well raise reacently weaned hand fed baby (or developed bird who had been hand raised) it would be much more likley to articulate.
can u recount me wr u live?&hw much did u pay for it. is it congo or pisscata?this bird is a great talker you have to thieve care of it very carefully,lovingly.i own one congo &she is darling of everybody in my house she plays around in my house integral day only she goes to her house contained by night
If you've just gotten him I would suspect he needs to be more comfortable contained by his new home and get used to things formerly he would be more willing to talk.
Besides, you have to tutor them to talk - they don't just automatically start talking unless they are trained.
OK NOW YOU SHOULD TAKE HIM TO THE VET TO FIND OUT HIS AGE THEY CAN TELL YOU BUT IF HES A BABY IT TAKES A WHILE FOR THEM TO GET USE TO YOU I HAVE A BLUE FRONT AMAZON AND IT TOOK LIKE 6 MOUNTHS BEFORE I COULD HOLD HIM BUT DONT LET THAT STOP YOU AFRICAN GREYS ARE THE SMARTEST BIRDS THE SAY THE MOST THAN ANY OTHER BIRD OUT THERE YOU WANT HIM TO TALK YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR TIME WITH HIM SAY ONE THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN PLAY SONGS OVER OVER AGAIN WHATEVER YOU WANT YOU JUST HAVE TO KEEP REPEATIN IT GOOD LUCK
dont you know that not adjectives birds talk.they decide you never ever should get a bird because you want it to speak.
Your cockatiel might be shy or don't know how to talk because it be captured in the wild. That's why parrot bred in captivity have better pet quality than those capture in the wild. If your African Grey didn't talk at a childish age then it might never talk. You have to realize that not adjectives parrots talk. Also some parrots don't chitchat when in a presence of a human so you could leave the room and listen to him.
if hes from a forest after he hasnt had the chance to learn any words,so you hav to tlak to it a great deal so it starts recognizing words
