You're almost correct..! His name is Hoogie, and we call him "Gee-gee" (or Gie-gie if you like!) for short. He just picked it up, without realising he's actually going over his name again and again..! He's also mumbled a few other phrases like "good parrot", "tickle tickle" and "good boy". In the earlier video he also mumbled a couple of Chinese words...

Hmm...Prinny knows she is saying her name and not just some word...she made the connection...maybe Hoogie does too

Well, no Spike is actually about 18 months older that Hoogie!... And, well, generally they do get along OK - but they have their fights as well. Well, when we've first got Hoogie and brought him home, Spike wouldn't even let Hoogie get near him, then one day while we went away on vacation and left them both at our friend's place, they suddenly became friends after that, and Spike has even started asking Hoogie for a preen!... Now they are almost like inseparable - can't let each other out of sight, but can't get too close as well..! And this preening business, it still carries on, altho Hoogie is now beginning to pluck the feathers around Spike neck..! Spike knows it hurts but still keeps asking for a preen..! We just have to keep a very close watch on them both!

Both are adorable.
Very verbal too. Nila loved it, I played it over three times and he
sat and talked back the whole time.
