Speech and Vocalizations African grey parrot
Pet African greys pick up on words and sounds very quickly.
African grey parrot can do it all: they make great pets, mimick human speech, and with the right training, can understand hundreds of words and phrases. Some say that the African grey parrot was kept as a pet for thousands of years—there are records of these birds as household pets in biblical times.
Greys like being handled, but are also perfectly content to just be around the family. They have natural wild instincts still intact so must have supervision and care taken when interacting with people. They can be likened to the intellect of a 5 year old, but the emotions of a two year old.
So they need strong socialization when young, and then ongoing training to be good members of your family.
