Players with any professions can own a parrot. Once you acquire a parrot, you'll need a perch for the parrot to live on as well as wafers to feed your parrot. Carpenters make perches, while wafers can be obtained from cooks. Once you have your parrot settled into your house, you'll notice that it will mimic what you are saying from time to time. Feeding it a wafer will also cause it to speak a phrase.
They can be found as loot on the new monsters and once placed in a perch, made by a carpenter, they will talk.

Parrots show age after time like "1 week old" If you spam words in front of them they will sometimes repeat these words Beware of your parrots! They like to get mouthy at the weirdest times. If you have a conversation in a house that has a parrot, they will randomly repeat words or phrases being spoken. This makes it hard if you wish to keep a conversation private, because a parrot will repeat what you say even if you're on a different floor than the parrot, and everyone in the house can see what the parrot says.
If you feed your parrot - player character chefs can make a light green food called 'parrot wafers', found in the preparations section of the cooking menu - it will say something from a pre-selected list of phrases (i.e. you can't teach your parrot what to say).
Parrots begin to show their ages after a week of being on a perch. Axing their perch to move it doesn't affect the parrot's age (so if your parrot is a week old, moving the perch/selling the parrot on the perch will not affect the one week tag). Currently there isn't a way to take a parrot off a perch, so make sure you use a wood color you'll be happy with in any setting (oak and normal wood will probably work best) when you make one.
Naming Your Parrot To name your parrot simply drag its health bar out like any other pet and type it in.
