To old to learn??
Okay, Abe, my cockatiel is a little over a year or so. He can do a couple different whistles (wolf-whistle, imitation of calling my name, and a couple other things).
I heard something once that after a certain age, that if they don't speak, they never will. I didn't hear the age that went along with this but I was just wondering if it was true or not, and if it was, how old is too old to learn??
Another question. I'm concerned about his beak. My mom said she thinks its just coloration, but I'm not so sure about it... Under neath one of his nares, there is a brown line all the way to the end of his beak. What is that? Is it just coloration or is something wrong healthwise? Should I be concerned??
If you need a picture I will try to post one...
ps-thanks for any help...
