Clear tone CAG?

Birds learn to talk at different rates and in different ways. Parrot talk is not a science, so it is difficult to answer your question. Most parrots learn to talk in a higher voice and like the voice of a woman over a man at least in the beginning. 13 months old is very young and he is still very much a baby speaking like a baby.

He will pick up words and phrases as time goes on. In the meantime, enjoy him for himself and understand that he is just a baby.As he matures, he'll pick up words and sounds. Some parrots talk better than others, so having a Grey is not a guarantee he will have a large vocabulary. Since birds have no vocal chords, it is a miracle that they can speak at all. Enjoy the miracle your bird is.

Thanks for writing,
Linda
