How old do Irn's have to be before they start talking? Do some start sooner than others. ??

mine started at a year and a half. he wasnt hand-reared and i think he had very little human contact so he was a bit delayed. he cant speak perfectly and might not ever because of his limited contact but he still tries and its so cute :D

Thank you I was just wondering my little one just learned hoe to wolf whistle from my other birds. and thought he may pick up other thing rather quickly from them My african Grey has a huge vocabulary I can't wait to see what Raja will sound like when he starts to talk

Spike the baby that I bred last year left here at 4 months saying hello. I think it just depends on the bird and how much talking they hear, indie talks non stop especially when we are not home so he would have heard it a fair bit.
