    Question What do your parrots say?

    I was just wondering what everyone’s parrot's say.

    Rascal says:

    Come On
    What are you doing?
    Come Here
    Here Boy
    Where are you going?
    Hello
    Angel
    You Okay

    He also makes a kissing sound I taught him and I also taught him to laugh, so after he says something he will laugh.

    We are working on Good Boy and Kiss Kiss.

    Re: What do your parrots say?

    I have posted about Yorick's words here but I will list my other two below:

    Calvin
    Hi
    Hello
    Good bird
    <wolf whistle>

    Willow
    Hello
    Hi
    Peekaboo!
    Up up!
    Are you ready?
    Here we go!
    Yorick
    Gotta go to work
    Good girl
    Woohoo!
    Whee!
    She also makes an assortment of sound effects:
    Click
    Cluck
    Kissy noises
    A startling cough she picked up when I was sick
    Beep
    wolf whistle

    Hehe, that was fun! Anyone else?

    Re: What do your parrots say?

    Loki says:
    Hello
    HiiiiIIIIIIIIIIIIIIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii (like a really long, rolling Hi; it's clearly very exciting for her)
    Step up
    Up-up
    Uh-oh

    Sounds:
    Water running
    kissing
    laugh

    Nothing has been taught to her although my mom is trying to teach her to say "apple" in japanese (her fave fruit) and my dad DESPERATELY wants her to say his name; Jack. If it were up to him, she would say "Jack, give me a treat!", "Thank you, Jack" and "Jack, you're the best". I don't think she's QUITE there yet.

    See videos of Loki and the boys here!

    Re: What do your parrots say?

    Okay, I won't list sound effects because there's too many (although I really love Pokey's newest sound effect: her imitation of me slurping my tea!), and I won't list Ebo's words because I've done that in the cockatiels forum... But here are some of the words that Pokey says. (I'm sure I've forgotten plenty)

    --Pokey, Poke, PokePoke, PokePoke Bird, and any variety of those (in my voice; and she also says "Pokey" in my father's voice)
    --Ebo, Ebo-Ebo (she says both of those in my voice and in Ebo's voice)
    --Bad Ebo (only in my father's voice )
    --Elmer (my ferret's name)
    --Hey, [name]. Hi, [name]. Hello, [name]. (insert any of the following names or variations of these names: Ebo, Pokey, Elmer, Shello (a nickname for me), ChoChoCho (another nickname for me ), Sharmila (my sister's name)
    --Fat bird; fat fat bird; hey, fat bird; etc.
    --How are you?
    --Thank you very much.
    --[name] wants water. Or "want some new water?" (the other day, she flew to her cage, looked inside, and said "Hi, water." )
    --That's nice.
    --That's cute.
    --Eew! (in several different tones)
    --Boo! (in my voice and in Ebo's voice)
    --Go away!
    --Bad Poke. Sooo bad.
    --Birthday bird.
    --Beak; Nice beak; Nice chest
    --Elmer's excited!; Pokey's excited!
    --Woo. (I have no idea what it's supposed to mean, but it's one of her favorite things to say. She says it in a human voice, just like it's spelled.)

    There's other stuff, too, but I don't *think* I've forgotten any of her favorite phrases... PokePoke is such a loser! And man, it's so much fun reading what other people's birds say! I remember hearing Willow say "Yorick" on one of the videos -- it was sooo cute!!!

    Aww, isn't it great to hear your own laugh laughed back? Well, maybe not my laugh, but it's great that Rascal's learned that!

    LOL Rachel's right!! Willow likes to chatter at some of the most inopportune times (usually when I'm on the phone...)

    Hehe, that is too funny! And how do you say "apple" in Japanese?

    Pho, LOL @ "Hi, water." And funny about "woo". Willow has just started saying something like that, though more in a sing-song voice. She does it when I first take her out of her cage at dinnertime and when I put her to bed. What an awesome vocabulary Pokey has! : I also remember the Pokey video where she says Elmer's name when you signed it. Too cool

    ferin says some things but he's still a baby so you have to listen really close to hear him say it and even then it's more of a sylabled whistle but he's getting better each day. here are some words he tries to say

    pretty bird
    i love you
    eagle
    step up

    and cutest of all is when i sing "fever" to him and i ask him what comes next he yells out FEVER!!! it's so cute lol.

    Re: What do your parrots say?

    I'll showcase our prodigy. Xavier has filled up the front and back page of his little notebook with words since last December. He uses the words interchangeably, but this is the base vocabulary:

    What?
    Huh?
    Erica!
    Wanna come out?
    Got your butt!
    Where ya going?
    Very good boy.
    Go on! Go on! (sounds like me encouraging him ... so cute)
    Pretty boy.
    No no!
    Okay
    I give up
    Step up
    NO BITE! (no joke: he just said it while I typed it)
    Go bye bye
    Xavier
    STOP! (to his toys)
    Good morning
    (the raspberry noise)
    More water
    Whoooooo! (think New Year's Eve party at midnight)
    Prettyca (yes, that's me)
    Whatica (also me)
    Wanna go under? (hangs from our fingers)
    Tickle tickle
    Wanna pickle? (only "P" sounds like a click, then a pause, then ickle)
