What's the age range when parrots start to be comfortable with vocalizing that they begin mimicking words?

0-100years old I'd imagine. It really depends on the species and the individual so it is hard to say. There are greys known to be fantastic talkers since young and others that never talk. Really hard to say on a general level. Kili didn't start vocalizing until after 1 year old.
