Owning a bird that talks, that would seem like a good idea. Then I remember that I have two kids that talk and quite often that has gotten me into a lot of trouble. Since neither birds nor kids have filters on what they might say out loud I should probably stick with a dog that just barks.

This bird is quite a talker. His name is Disco and he is an internet sensation. Here is just a short montage of some of his most famous sayings. I particularly like "What's the problem officer?:" and "Nobody puts baby bird in a corner".

How do you train a parakeet to talk like that? I am sure it takes a lot of patience and quite a few treats. I can barely get my dog to go outside to use the bathroom so I am sure training  birds to talk is for people who are wired like I am.
