Parrots are natural talkers. They easily pick up words to the delight of many pet owners. Although most parrots have the ability to produce sounds like human speech, there are specific species that are absolutely brilliant in mimicking human speech and responding when talked to. These are the double yellow-headed, yellow-naped, and blue-fronted Amazon parrots. Also, the younger the parrot is, the easier it is to teach.
Parrots also learn to talk in numerous ways. Experts say that parrots, which are kept alone with owners who talk a lot, and those kept with other parrots that talk, are the ones that are more susceptible to learning.
Once your parrot has developed an extensive vocabulary, decide if you think training can move on to cover "responding." To train your pet parrot how to respond, teach the answer first, like you would with the technique above. Once it learns to mimic the response, prompt it by asking the question. Repeat prompting until it calls out the correct answer. Reward your pet when it does this. Repeat until the response becomes consistent.
