here is some help..
by: Deepansh

you have to mention your bird species for 100% right information....however here is some help:
there is no age for a bird to get trained for talking..i mean you just do conversation with him since beginning and he will repeat or mimic your words when he is 7-8 months old....talking about fruits, you should start giving him fruits when he is about two months old...

Teaching your bird to talk
by: Tracie

You didn't mention the species of bird that you have, but you can read the articles on our Parrot Training page for some ideas.

Basically, you will want to spend time with your bird saying, in an excited voice, the things you wish your bird to say. Birds seem to respond to exaggerated noises, so sounding excited when you speak seems to help sometimes.

Some birds start repeating things before they are even weaned, so age doesn't matter.
