mirrors in cages

Will a mirror in a cage delay young birds talking or is this myth nonsense?

Spit used to talk to his mirror. he used to call it "toy". he got a bit too obsessive with it though so we had to take it away. i dont think it will stop them talking

Billy has always had a mirror in his cage from the day we had him and he talks and learns new words
