"I have a mixed opinion about Derbyans. Speaking abilities in birds were never a high requirement of mine so I will omit that part of vocal capabilities. I have two Derbyans. Both came from the same bird store. One which I handfed out and the other I bought later on from the same store. Both have standoffish personalities and dislike being touched. They will however tolerate being perched on a hand and seem content to extend that much of their comfort with human contact. As a veteran bird keeper I find derbyans to be rather unresponsive and quite frankly a useless pet bird if compared to conures or lories (though that is subject to opinion and individual bird personalities). They would however make gregarious aviary birds and probably enjoy that sort of setting moreso than a home environment."
