Bird doesn't talk
by: Tracie

Some birds never learn to talk, even African Greys. The best you can do is continue to talk to the bird and hope one day it will want to repeat what you say. Of course, you need to work at one specific word or phrase often.

I am of the belief that sharing something from your plate when you are eating helps them think you are a part of the "flock." That doesn't mean it really has to be your food, you can have a special treat that is healthy for them on the edge of your plate and they will think it is your food you are sharing.
