    Hi everyone. I hope I'm not going crazy....but..... has anyone ever had a silkie that imitates other sounds like a parrot can do?
    I have a silkie that has copied my whistle and also sometimes will whinnie like my horse. The bird is about 3 months old and now crows just like my neighbors roosters. I am positive of his/her age and also have sat there and encouraged him/her to continue copying sounds. Well, if there are any other imitators out there please let me know. Thank you and God Bless.
