Everyone knows that many parrots can talk, or at least that they have the ability to. However, there are many that never speak, even if they can. The question in this article, though, is; can all parrots talk, or only some species? First, we need to know how parrots that do talk actually do it. Parrots that talk do so by changing the way air flows over their syrinx, in a similar way to how we talk.
With that in mind, you should know that yes, all parrots CAN talk, but it is very unlikely that they all will. If you are looking to buy a parrot for them to talk, you may well be disappointed, and you may want to rethink your reasoning. However, Amazon and African Grey parrots do have more tendency to copy human speech than others, even though all of them have the ability.
