Dear Parrot Lover,
It is only natural to want to train your parrot to talk! Who doesn’t love listening to a talking parrot?
Well, learning to teach your parrot to talk is actually quite simple. Most parrots, especially the larger ones such as Macaws, Cockatoos and African Greys, have an innate talking ability. All you will lead is plenty of patience and proper knowledge on how to train your parrot to realize their full talking potential. Here are a few parrot talking tips:
Introduce a new word or phrase to your parrot by first speaking it aloud. Then you can use that same word or phrase in a sentence. This will help your parrot to hear the word being repeated in different contexts.
Every time your parrot echoes the word back to you, make sure you give him lots of praise and maybe even a treat!
Engaging in a conversation with your parrot can also be a great way to help him improve his talking ability. Stick with chatting back and forth with him about things like food, treats and toys.
Be sure to clearly pronounce your words so that your parrot can easily pick up on the sounds.
Set aside at least 30 minutes per day to start, where you and your parrot will not be interrupted by other pets, family members, friends or your favorite television show.
Never scold or punish your parrot. Parrots learn at their own pace - you cannot rush them.
Be sure to reward him just for at least trying to say the word or phrase correctly.
You can eventually train your parrot to respond verbally to questions that you ask him, using the words and phrases that you have taught him.
Continue with your parrot’s training until he is able to correctly respond with the right answer at least 90% of the time. Once this occurs, it is then time to move onto a new word or phrase. Remember not to give up too soon - and have lots of fun!
Turn Your Bird into a Chatter Box
Have You Always Dreamed of a Talking Parrot?
Most people that decide to bring a parrot into their home envision a bird that loves to talk, whistle, sing, and entertain. What happens when the bird doesn’t decide to talk as much or maybe at all?
Even if your parrot knows a few words or phrases, would you like him to be able to do more? Parrots are naturally inclined to mimic and make noises, and it is very realistic for your bird to be able to know and speak hundreds of word, if you want him to!

“My parrot, Piper, did not talk at all before I ordered your course. He seldom made guttural or random sounds outside of screeching when people arrived or walked past our house, ” says Nathan Strauss. Nathan is only 13 and taught his bird 8 new words in only 2 months!
“The bird talking course is awesome! I have a 5 month old cockatoo that’s already saying ‘hello’ and ‘uh-oh’ (when she drops something), after only a few days, ” says Pat Uncapher.
