    It should still learn to mimic you because it does not have another budgie to talk to. When it starts to mimic it may also mimic the society finches. Usually they mimic the sounds they hear most. So talk to it as much as possible, start by repeating the same word over until it starts to pick this up, Peter is better that Paul because the birds pick up 2 syllable words quicker that single syllable words when they are first learning. it can also help if you record yourself talking to the bird and play the recording when you are not there.
