First Prop done! Probably going to get some better audio but that's my first attempt to create parrot talk.

It's a Hasbro Squawkers McCaw FurReal Friends parrot. You can buy them on Ebay. Just make sure it works. Then you can buy this controller to make him talk. You have to do a little surgery to get the wires out but I managed to do it with one hand, so you can do it too. I'm a quadriplegic in a wheelchair. To buy a controller, contact Jack at - [email protected] His website is http://audioservocontroller.com/

Looks great Pooky73! You put me to shame. I bought my parrot off ebay too and then board from J-Man a while back. With clear instructions and closeup photos got the bird sort of “defeathered” and gutted and then had other stuff come up; and not using it for this past Halloween, it got set aside. Hopefully a winter project. Definitely will be a scene stealer for the kids when done though. Now with Halloween past, good time for people to start looking for these birds at more reasonable ebay prices too.

For those unaware, J-Man, a fellow member here, has several threads for his boards showing off different projects with them. Look under the For Sale By Merchants on the forum if you want to check them out further.

What do you have to do? I've got two of the Squawkers that are begging for a conversion.
It's super easy. I have method outlined with pictures that shows exactly what to do. You don't have to take it apart, you don't even have to remove his suit.

lol that was fast I just read the pirate post where you were asking about the parrot! Your cat does not seem impressed, but I am jealous. We did pirates a few years back and didn't know bout sqwakers back then. I do know that J -man has all kinds of geat things......now you need the billy bass and J mans board that makes the fish say whatever you want!

Nice work Pooky73. I don't want to hijack your thread but I need to throw a shout out to J-Man as well. His board and directions were easy to follow and the final effect is awesome! Here is a link to the one I completed last year...
