In fact, fourteen blue-crowned parakeets were used to play Paulie. All were trained to understand over 50 verbal commands and hand gestures.
Owners like the green cheek for its relative calm compared to other conures. It’s not that loud or that frequent in its reputation, but it will make some noise. Green-faced parakeets are known to speak, and some may learn a few words, but are generally not valued for their ability to speak.

The puffin is native to South America and its range extends from Colombia to Argentina. Its natural habitat includes savannas, woodlands and tropical forests. The blue crown is between 15 and 16 inches long from the head to the long pointed tail.
The boy name (also used as a girl name) is of Latin origin and the meaning of Paulie is small. Paulie is an alternate spelling of Paul (Latin).
The puffin nests easily in captivity and is one of the few relatively easy parrot species to find in pet stores and breeders. You can expect to pay anywhere from 1,000 to 2,000. Check out these online resources for adopting, saving or purchasing a blue-crowned parakeet: Save the Birds.

Parakeets need time. Some learn faster than others. Sometimes, just when you are losing hope of learning to talk to your pet, you may be surprised to find that by the age of 2-3 you become a passionate speaker.
It is quite typical for a parakeet to say at least a few words, and some individuals have a much larger vocabulary. But if you ask parakeet owners about their birds, they will likely describe the energetic, happy, and loving nature of budgies long before they even start talking.
Parakeets are social pack animals, but they are also monogamous and choose a partner to be with for the rest of their life.
When it comes to the best speakers in the bunch, Patagonia Conures, Blue Crowned Conures, and Red Masked Conures are your best options. If you decide to adopt, I recommend that you visit local animal shelters in your area.
Here are some ways to keep your pet calm and reduce the noise level in the house.
