I can only speak for cockatiels, budgies and myna birds, they are quite easy to train to talk, you can only keep one though, if you have two then they normally just bird talk to each other. start by just letting your hand sit in the cage (if the bird is older) if you get them young and from a good breeder then they are probably already hand tamed. we sold all ours like that. to teach them to talk you just keep repeating a word, to get their undivided attention you can drape a towel over the cage on 3 sides and talk to him in the open side. if your bird bites, just give a gentle blow in his face, he'll let go.
