Hi everyone. I will 1st say I'm a old timer and raised Budgies and Zebra finches for a long time years ago. I have also had larger birds, a Blue Front Amazon, a Moluccan Cockatoo, Sun conjure, Many Cockatiels. I just decided I want a couple of birds back in my life to talk to and enjoy.
My son went to a local national pet store and got me a couple of budgies, a blue male and a green female. The female looks a few weeks older than the male. Trying to acclimate them to there new surroundings I played them some Budgie sounds from a YouTube video. And low and behold one of the two of them is talking I heard 5 or 6 distinct phrases. I haven't been able to see which one it is, but is it possible? The store said they come from local breeders. Would a breeder let a hand fed go to a pet store like that? The things it says would not be inconsistent with someone caring for them. Generalized statements like "I love you" "I'm a pretty bird" "Hello" ect. My son says I'm crazy. I'm not senile yet and I know I heard it, just haven't figured out who's doing it. They are still not at home yet, this is only the second day but they are coming around nicely. Could this be? Don't tell me I'm crazy too LOL. Thank you.

That is awesome that you've had so many different kinds of birds! I love birds. We keep looking at getting a sun conjure next.

Birds are VERY smart and it easily could be that your bird picked up on phrases no matter how it was raised. That is awesome! Congrats!! smile
