He also has developed a habit of only sitting on top of doors and cabinets. Not to mention flying around the house like crazy(which I’m...

    My Quaker is obsess with my cat

    Hi! I have a Blue Quaker named Stitch, and he’s your typical Quaker with a Quaker attitude. He’ll have his good days and his moody days, mostly moody. The concern I have as of lately, however, is that Stitch is oddly obsessed with my cat. My cat is relatively calm, so he doesn’t have much...

    Cage aggression?

    Hello! I was wondering if anyone has suggestions to tone down cage aggression. My Quaker that I got pretty recently is very friendly once out of his cage but when he’s in it or on it he can be pretty nasty. For instance I was trying to change his food while he was in the cage (my mistake) I...

    Quaker help?

    Hi all, new parrot owner here! I’ve recently adopted a super sweet Quaker that I’m just in love with. I spent 2 years researching, and making sure I knew how to care, what to expect, and even took bird care classes. I was prepared even knowing that I couldn’t know everything! Well, I adopted a 3...

    I need advice for my Quaker Parrot!

    Okay so I have a baby Quaker 3 months old (20 weeks old) and I've had him for maybe a little over a month now and I was wondering how long it takes them to get used to their owners? He's very skittish and doesn't let my hands by him, he won't step up unless I have a treat and it's a wood dowel...

    Quaker Parrot Hates Harness

    So I got a harness for my Quaker parrot who’s about a year old, Monty. It was all fine before I put it on him. He seemed okay while I was putting the harness on him. But, when it was fully on, he seemed broken. He kept biting the harness and his feet held on to the harness which meant that he...

    Quaker behaviors by age

    Quaker lovers, tell me what your young Quaker did/does? Older bird? I think Hiccup is relatively young, although s/he might be displaying reticence as we are getting to know one another. Hiccup seems unsure about taking off in flight. I watched my conure, Max, go through this when he first...
