10 Phrases Everyone Should Teach Their Pet Parrot

10 Phrases Everyone Should Teach Their Pet ParrotI have always been fascinated by parrots. They are gorgeous with their bright colors and fun personalities to match it’s hard not to love them.

While I don’t think I will ever get one for our house, I do think they can make an adorable family member and the fact that you can train them to say certain things is just fun.

I am sure that parrots are just like kids and they will always pick up on the words and phrases you would prefer they not, but you can have a little bit of fun with it.

If I had a parrot, I would want them to learn phrases beyond the typical “I love you” and “hello”. I would want to have some fun with it at other’s expense because not everyone has a parrot in the house!
