When will Eclectus talk?
I just purchased a Male Eclectus. He is going to be six months old. He is very sweet and has become very attached to me. Would like to know when they start to talk. I have been spending time talking to Murphy, easy words, Hello, Hi, Hello Mama, that's about it.
Haven't heard from him as yet. I am a little worried that he may not talk. I have two Umbrellas' adopted, they don't talk. The female says Hi and her name. The male was neglected and wild, but has become very sweet and cuddly. I do know cockatoos do not talk very well, I am fine with that.
Murphy has me concerned, should he be talking by now, maybe just HELLO? Thanking you in advance, Karen
Oh yes, he was raised by a very reputable breeder in my area, she just didn't spend too much time talking to him while hand feeding.
