Many Green Cheeks do talk, but
they do not articulate as clearly as a Grey or other parrots. I
equate it to a mom who can understand her own 2-year old
perfectly, but not everyone else can. They vary quite a bit.
Cookie has a fairly large vocabulary for a Green Cheek. Here is
what Cookie can say:
favorites are obviously: " Cookie, wanna cookie?" (which it sounds like
is what she says after she says whatcha doin in the movie, the wanna is
really low and mumbled), whatcha doin, stepup, what?, and "shhhhhh"
which just sounds like white noise, she would always do it when the
other birds were doing their morning shrieks. She will wolf whistle all
day too. She also says "sqwonk" or "sqwank" pretty often thanks to my
old roommate but it just sounds like bird noise.
Her lesser repertoire, which needs a lot of goading, is:
Get out! (Of the bird room, you bad kitty kitty. They always
chase me in.)
Hey! (Or "Oy!", in my roommates voice from two years ago.
She will usually say it if you say "OY!" in a strong
masculine scottish accent, its hard to explain.. kind of
sounds like "why?")
Cricket (the name of a parrotlet)
Pick it up
You gotta quit (what I say to her when she screams at my
sewing machine, she really hated that thing)
And several sound effects from South Park
She can also curse but we ignore it so she hasn't done it in
a long while. Also thanks to my roommate. LOL
