What do the French say to pet birds?

I recently bought a parakeet. Parakeets can mimic speech, so naturally I want to learn some cute phrases to say to him in French.

According to Wiktionary, 'Bonjour Jacquot' is a/the French analogue of 'Pretty Polly'.
Different parakeet species are much more or less inclined to mimicry than others, however, and it varies greatly according to individuals, anyway, so don't set your expectations too high.
