Do female tiels talk as well as boys? I know it's a boy budgie that talks better than a girl, so I was just wondering if it is the same for Tiels. Dooby just doesn't shut up!!! She is whistling all the time and I'm telling her she's a "Clever girl" etc etc, but I don't think she has attempted to say it yet. She whistles the intonation to clever girl, if you see what I mean, but she doesn't say the words. I know, I know, it's early days. LOL.
