It is clear :D When he gets excited it's pretty pretty pretty pretty bird :D He is just under 4 months, I estimated his hatch date as May 1st. He knows step up and down perfectly and is doing well with his flying trick, I say is Spike going to fly away and he flaps his wings :D He is doing great. Still has his hissy fits though :rolleyes:

Bailee's first whistle was the wolf whistle, followed by the "come here" whistle. Spike sounds like a smart bird. :D

Cheeky doesn't whistle..... I was told it was a bad thing to teach them, so I don't whistle around him at all.

He made noises, and regular tweeting before he spoke. His first words were "Pretty Bird", which then became "Cheek is a pretty bird", "A VERY Pretty Bird", and "Hello", and a few others.

I'm always working with him on his talking.

I was also told that if I got another tiel, that Cheeky would stop his talking...even if I got another that talked.

I think the thing with whistles is that you shouldn't teach them first if you want a talking tiel, you've got that so i think you can do whistles safely now! :D

Boomberry, a member here, has a talking/whistling tiel Noo and he still talks and whistles despite the presence of her 3 other tiels. ;)

Oh I would love to teach Lea tricks like the flying trick! I am working on the hold hands trick that I taught Bobby but she isn't interested in learning at the moment, her main objective in life is to chew things!!! :p

Spike said I love you :D he also said good boy and what are you doing and he laughs like my Mom :D :D :D I can't believe he is learning so fast. He steps up and down and can flap on command too. I am too proud of him :) Oh and Bea I love your photo with Bailey in a helmet :p He probably will want to get one. Glad he is doing much better.

I have one but I am not very good at putting pictures up. So I don't know about videos mabey one day I will try and video tape it. Right now he mainly talks when he can't see me but Iam working on getting him talking with me completley in sight. I wonder why he only talks in his cage, he is super quite when on my shoulder.
