Talking parrots, what will they ever say? What do we teach them, or what would we ever want them to learn? I wonder why I found that i talking parrots they have a nice temper, price and races they don't matter, they just have it. Among other things, for parrots we should speak exclusively of "species"As the term" race "is taxonomically incorrect.
Within the individual parrot species , in the event that the color changes, we can speak of mutation.
Known therefore, species and price, better inform yourself about their characteristics. And on their "temper", because you can always opt for a nice soft toy if you don't feel ready now!
Talking parrots: price
The uttering of words or phrases, or nothing, for i talking parrots, more than a question of breed - but a little bit it is - it is above all something that depends on the animal's learning process. The most receptive are there, but then it's our job to keep up with them. They learn for "linguistic osmosis ", no frontal lessons. Theirs price, without lessons and without certainty that they will say what we want, is among the 700 and 1000 euros. Let's see the "most talking" parrot breeds.
Talking parrots: Cenerino
The Cenerino is among the talking parrots originating from Africa: ash gray in color with white tips and a red tail, it is not the most colorful and in the end, among its peers, it is striking for this reason, in the midst of other people's carnivals. There are 2 recognized subspecies: the Cenerino Maggiore, over 35 cm in length, and the Cenerino Minore, smaller and darker. Both need space and don't like being caged at all: but who loves it, I wonder? The fact is that he, the Cenerino, has a decisive and strong character.
The Ashes are not affectionate in a "human" sense but they are gods talking parrots that if raised by man they develop a morbid attachment to their master. And they repeat every sentence. The life expectancy of a Little Gray goes from 40 to 60 years and even more, if kept in optimal conditions. That is, no drafts, large cage, very varied diet made not only of seeds and apples, but fruit, vegetables, cereals, legumes and feed. It is important to have regular hours and let them know as well.
With more lively colors and smaller sizes, among the talking parrots we report themonk parakeet. Its price varies a lot based on livery and training: hand-trained talking parrots (and not in cages) tend to cost more.
Talking parrots: Amazon
Always if kept as it should, but the Amazon, it is much longer-lived than others talking parrots: he lives 80 years. It is even larger than the Gray Gray and from its South America it brings in our case a colorful plumage, worthy of a Carnival. Even the Amazon among the talking parrots he is very attached to his master, he is smart and intelligent but madly jealous. Also and above all if he starts shouting: he makes himself heard and if the owner is his, he must talk to him. This is how these reason talking parrots.
But let's also write them well: they are very sociable, used to living in groups since always, they are loyal, affectionatei and fun lovers. Intelligent and playful, greedy for nuts and fruit, as well as foliage, the Amazons have mimic skills that surprise and make them talking parrots irresistible.
Talking parrots: Cockatoos
The parrot Cockatoo comes from a continent still different: from Oceania, and among its numerous subspecies the most talkative is the "goffiniana", the best, or almost, of all talking parrots. The Cockatoo sports light plumage, with some inconspicuous undertones, and stands out among its peers talking parrots for its curved beak, for its zygodactyl foot, but above all for its erectile crest: wonderful!
The "measures" of this bird are 30-60, as regards the dimensions, in cm, while 80 is the number of years that it can remain on earth to keep us company, with its playful and intelligent behavior at the same time. He is very intelligent, so like others talking parrots, needs to be stimulated and listened to.
In other words, if you do not pay attention to them and "swear friendship" they can tear their feathers out of boredom. Taking two is not enough, these talking parrots they want you. They want you to interact with them, they want to get out of the cage, but if you caress them and talk to them then they repeat what has been said with moderate skill.
Talking parrots: Cockatiel
Talkative is also the Cockatiel that among the talking parrots it is classified as medium / small size (30-32 cm) and medium life expectancy (about 20 years) but it is also cheaper. THE talking parrots Cockatiel appear gray with a lighter long tail and a funny forelock, all their own! In the face they are yellow, with a red spot on the cheek that varies hue and size according to the sex: the least colored is the female.
Get used to living these in groups talking parrots they have a sociable and not very aggressive character, they are curious and it is also for this reason that from an early age, if stimulated, they learn games and words. Their favorite "dishes" are based on small seeds, berries, fruit, seeds and vegetables but beware: read up on those who are not novices. This Cockatiel comes from Australia, but it is said that, nomadic as he is, today he is also in Italy: a colony would have been sighted in the province of Catania and some specimens also in the palms of the port of Cagliari.
Talking parrots: Conure
Extremely good at mimicking the human voice, among the talking parrots, there is the one with the splendid name of Conure of the sun. Lively, affectionate, cheerful, it has a wonderful complexion that the name already suggests. His coat in general is Golden yellow, the wings, upper part, are green with a blue tip, the tail still mixes these colors while you can see orange on the belly and on the sides of the beak.
All this marvel of colors lies in its 30 cm of length: it is not the largest among the talking parrots. Like other colorful friends, it comes from the tree-lined savannahs and palm groves of South America, does not seem to run imminent risk of extinction and is in Europe until 1971: immediately, beautiful and talkative, it was raised and reproduced with profit.
In his diet, in addition to the "classic" foods for talking parrots - fruit, seeds, nuts, berries - the Conure of the Sun also inserts many flowers. Could these be what make it so colorful? In case, better prepare a cage and a floral and colorful space with these ad hoc wall stickers.
Talking macaw parrots
Inevitable in a list of talking parrots the Ara, specifically I have chosen, for the colors and the character, the yellow-blue macaw also called Ara ararauna, the best known and most widespread species. Plumage and size, docility and tranquility make it excellent as a pet but also as a circus juggler: it is often a star in water parks and playgrounds.
Between talking parrots it is among the longest-lived, reaches 70 years without difficulty, has a robust physique, with its 80 and over cm, and is well suited for breeding in captivity. In the cage it loves a lot, as well as talking, inappropriately, also, to climb skillfully using its strong legs and beak.
L'Macaw it is native to Central and South America (Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Guyana, Trinidad, Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay and also in the north of Argentina) where it lives in dense thickets and forests, takes refuge in the foliage of large trees, it eats fruit, seeds, berries, shoots, snails and in general everything edible it finds on trees. Among all talking parrots of which we have talked, without mercy, at times, this yellow and blue Macaw is one of the most peaceful and docile. But he has nothing to envy to his colleagues is a good imitator, not just in words!
Its colors make it unique: the green forehead fades into blue-blue towards the head and the nape while the cheeks are of white bare skin with light black streaks. The black of the chin strap is evident and continues on the large black beak like the yellow-edged iris. Nape and back, including wings and tail, are of a beautiful blue-blue, while the neck, chest, belly, abdomen and lower part of the wings and tail are deep yellow. There is no lack of color, it is for people who need to cheer, or who like to dress in a colorful way and have a talking parrot always well matched.
