I own 5 parakeets. They are very lovely birds. I started with two who hatched and raised (I helped a bit!) 3 babies. So I have a whole family. I noticed with the youngest, he is trying to talk but I can’t make out what he is saying. Is there a way to encourage parakeets to talk more loudly or clearer?
Have you considered using the TV or music? My sister has two of these little guys and they started talking after she would leave the radio or TV on when she went to work. She did this so they weren’t lonely.
