Hi all. I will be getting a male (likely blue) Quaker, hopefully in 4 weeks, but may be longer if neither or the 2 babies left are male. I've never had a Quaker, but have been reading about them. I do have a 5 year old Green Cheek so not a total parrot newbie. I have a cage but think I will trade or sell it and get one that has feeding doors and a playtop. What can I do to prevent cage aggression is it just being out a lot and being with me a lot? Also for those who managed to be potty train your quaker, what did you do, how long did it take? To encourage talking should anything be done besides talking to him? I am home all day, (disabled) so I know I can give enough love to both birds. what are some good bonding techniques? I picked my conure out weeks before he could come home, and visited him often, so he wasnt afraid when he was brought home. I wont be able to do that with the quaker, he is two hours away, what should I expect and do to decrease the fear of all the changes the firs? I read that they are big chewers, and nesters so what are the bests type of toys for them? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Do they go through any biting (or other) stages, best people food to start them off with. anything you think someone should know please tell me! I have researched this breeder and spoken to multiple people who have gotten quakers from her and I've heard nothing but great things about her and her birds. Thanks so much. Oh and would love fun name ideas for a blue male Quaker.
