'I guess I'm going to have to call him Baby......He added yet another word to his vocabulary. When I sat down this morning next to him as I usually do, he said "Hi, baby" several times. (the new word is "hi".) Such a little smarty pants. We got him on April 27, or so.
He started wolf whisteling the first day....probs from the pet store. Then, First words were "Bab-beee" w/n the first 4-5 days. Then, "here, baby" w/n the next few days...then "come here, baby." Today it's "Hi, baby."
I've had talking birds (budiges and my Pionus) b/f. But, this rate of learning is over-the-top!
EDITED To ADD Question: He doesn't like anything that's wet. Just put some Romaine lettuce in between the bars of his cage attached with a clothes pin. As usual, he was very curious and enthusiastic about anything new......but then tastes, shakes his head like it's nasty and runs away. Same thing this a.m. when I gave him some sprouts. He's done it with other things like slices of carrots.....won't eat them until they dry out a little. Is this a characteristic of conures?
