...and my Twitter doesn't tweet

Guess what? My budgerigar has a blue-colored wings so I called him Twitter. Honestly, I dreamt to teach him mimicing sounds and words and first few month spent so many time on it. Unfortunately, I had no results:(
budgerigar didn't said a word, just sings and laughs. I'm not sure what I did wrong, because at that moment I didn't read any of materials.
The best advice I can give you - spend as many time with budgerigar at the beggining as you can!!! For the first few weeks I literaly saw how terrified he was because of new house and people surrounding him. But I was always by his side - talking, giving food and being kind. Right now I'm the only one person who is allowed to do something in his cage:)))) It seems like he recognizes me as an alpha-leader:))) But seriously, be kind to your budgerigar because he will give you lots of positive emotions and great mood!
