Petra is amazing. She’s been seen on TV all over the world. She’s potty trained. We hold her over the trash can and say “Go potty” she does then we tell her “Good girl” We’ve had her since she was a few weeks old. We finished hand feeding her. She’s a pro with her Alexa, and is currently training on her Google Home. She responds to her training by correcting us with “ALEXA” when we say “OK GOOGLE” lol. These are just a few clips of what makes Petra so amazing. it ends with a “I love you bye bye” she says that any time someone leaves the room lol
UPDATE: Petra FINALLY said “Google” & it only took unplugging her Alexa to get her to do it! 5-10-2018

The Petra Time line. We keep being asked so we sat down and put it together, between time stamped photos, calendars and receipts lol
June 16th, 2014 Petra hatched
July 27th, 2014. We got her & finished hand feeding her
August 26th, 2014. Her first 2 words in one day. “Hello” and then “Peanut” the words weren’t clear, but they were definitely said.
August 28th, 2014 we realized just how smart she is. I told her “NO BITING!” and held her beak. She said in here baby babble voice “Good birdie”
She understood that biting was bad and she needed to be a good bird. And was probably hoping to get out of trouble by trying to convince me she was a good birdie lol. We were so shocked!
December 16th, 2014 we filmed Petra saying numerous things as a still dark eyed youth.
December 27th 2014 When asked if she cared she won the photo contest for Bird Talk 2015 magazine, she said “Nope” on camera

March 21st, 2017 Dottie, our beloved 11 year old Jack Russell Dies
March 22nd 2017. Petra is confused as to why her dog isn’t there and continues to yell “Dottie? Dottie come here. Dottie where are you? Dottie? Come get your ball? Dottie!?!”
September 11th, 2017 Hurricane Irma knocked out power for about 26 hours. We had the hurricane shutters up, but took down the ones by the back door so she & Oscar could see out. We have video of Petra saying ‘Alexa! All lights on!’ pissed because Alexa was unable to comply lol
