Default Does anyone have a female that talks?

My female grey often behaves more like a male - ie. singing, wolf whistling etc. And I swear she is trying to talk now. I have only had the girls about a month, but every day when I uncover their cage I say "Hello ladies", and tonight I swear she tried to reply hello. I have read online that females are not known for talking. Does that translate to possible although not common? Am I completely off in my thinking here? Is it possible? Does anyone here have a female that talks?

We once had a rather noisy, chatty female as well as another who also held her own. These were both proven females. From what I understand, it's an issue of the female's temperament being quiet, whereas the male is typically gregarious; not the female's inability to speak.

Thats kind of what I thought when it said "not known for talking" that to me means rare but possible. And my Kensi girl is anything but quiet.. LOL! she sings and whistles, and chatters away in birdy sounds, so while I was amazed at what I swear was a hello from her, I guess I wasn't really surprised. I think I will just keep at my customary greeting, and see what develops..

I have a female....and she's as quiet as a mouse! She RARELY even let's out a peep. if she does it will be one short squawk haha. She's only 5 1/2 months though so that could change and maybe she'll chirp in the future haha. I live in an apartment though so it works out pretty well.

I had a female that talked. She was a pearl, and she never lost her pearls so even though she never laid an egg, I assume she was a she.
She had quite an ability, she could:
-wolf whistle
-say the name of her cage mate, Jerry (the only word said Jerry could say, I think "he" was actually a "she")
-cough and sneeze exactly like my mum (and only at the same time of day that mum did it - the morning)
-dial like the phone, ring the phone, answer the phone and laugh like my mum
-say "birdy-bird" and make kissing noises.

I was actually just thinking the same thing. Every time I talk to peanut I say hello pretty bird, anyway this morning I came down and my hubby said she has been making funny noises all morning, I went over said my usual hello pretty bird and she said nothing. Then about 10 minuets later we heard a very "hello" like sound from peanut and then "hello pretty bird".

That said we dont know if peanut is male or female as she hasnt had her first molt yet, we are just going off the fact she is a cinnamon/pearl.
