I heard the other day that if you have a Cockateil that talks and then you get another Cockateil that doesn't the one that talks will stop talking and start only making bird sounds again. I hope this isn't true. My Spike has a large vocabulary and I just got Bandit and he doesn't talk. I really don't want Spike to stop talking. If this is true I'm going to separate them and put Bandit in another room. I don't want to have to do that because they have become good friends.
