    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...

    Hi guys! I am new here! My quakers surprised me with with a couple babies and even more so when they decided they weren’t up to the task of being parents. Babies are doing great with hand feeding. Interesting thing is they both have different colored eyes. Anyone know what mutation this could...

    Quaker nest building and feeding

    Hello, my name is Michelle. My partner and I recently purchased two Quakers (male and female). We have owned birds before but not for many years and we were children when our respective families owned birds so we did not have a great deal of involvement in the care of them. We have both done...

    Green Cheek Conure or a Quaker parrot?

    Hey, I am doing my research for my first birds. I ended up narrowing it down to tow species, the GCC and the Quaker parrot. I really love Quakers! I love how they look, their personality and the fact that they may talk adds a good bonus. Since I do share walls with neighbors, I am scared that...

    Newly adopted bird will let my roommate pet them - but not me

    Hello! About two weeks ago I adopted a 3 month old Quaker Parrot, and they've been doing really well! Very social and will fly to me and sit on my hand or nap on my shoulder. Wouldn't let me pet him. That's fine, I thought, just needs time to develop trust. THEN today and yesterday my roommate...

    Pictures Vent feathers gone and stained, cloaca exposed and poop stuck

    My quaker parrot has recently been having issues. They are missing a ton of feathers from the cloaca area, and poop has been getting stuck. I can't afford an avian vet, so I was wondering if there's anything I could do for them. They seem to be doing reasonably fine, but there have been moments...

    Bird Hemp (Hempwell) for Plucking

    Hello fellow bird owners! This is my first ever thread, so I'm not too sure how to navigate everything. I just wanted to run a bit of an experiment/review for everyone wondering about the Bird Hemp oil from the brand Hempwell. There were barely any reviews on it anywhere, but it was recommended...

    Hello! Baby quaker

    Hello everyone! I recently got a baby Quaker parrot. He’s about a month old, and we notice one of his leg looked off. We’re not sure if this because he’s still young and can’t support his weight. Is it normal for baby ? He’s stand up normally on his leg now. The photos I posted are a week apart.

    Quaker Parrot suddenly aggressive?

    Alright, so I purchased a quaker parrot from a website called “fly babies aviary” about a month ago. I can tell he hasn’t fully trusted me yet as even before the aggressiveness I would stick my hand in and he sometimes would move away. I would leave the cage door open and he would sometimes come...

    So, I have a female cockatiel and I'm planning on adopting a new cockatiel alongside a quaker parrot this year. For the first one, I'm not worried, but I'm concerned in how will a tiel react to a quaker and vice versa. I'm of couse going to house them separately, but I wanna know how it's...

    Foods for quakers?

    Aside from vegetables, fruit, & pellets, what should I be feeding my quaker? I've been seeing the cutest ads on this site for sprouting seed packets & bird cakes.. would the variety be good? Could I have examples of the daily diets of your birds? Thanks!
