    Budgie and Quaker problems

    Ever since one of my budgies passed, my other budgie has been trying to hang out with my Quaker. I don’t let them out of the cage together because I don’t want Lemonade (my budgie) getting hurt, but they sit with each other through the cage bars (Lemonade on the outside, Milo on the inside) all...

    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...

    Pictures My Quaker Lumi

    Lumi was born 3.16.22 and has been with me since 11.16.22. She is a green opaline quaker with a yellow underbelly and some brown spots across her back. She was hand fed by a lady who rescued the parent parrot couple who were originally caught in wild homed and then had to be rehomed to a lady...

    Foods I could share with my Quaker?

    So, I was thinking about making recipes that me and my Quaker could eat together. He’s a kind of picky eater but when he sees me eat things he likes to try them out to, and I’m hoping to take advantage of this! I prefer more “natural” or “plain” foods, which would make it easier to share, I...

    Nail cutting?

    Hey! I’ve noticed my quakers nails need trimming and was wondering the best way to go about it? Should I take him to a vet/pet store to get them trimmed, or would one of those pedi-perches with the smooth top (so it doesn’t hurt his feet) work? I’ve never had to get nails cut before because...

    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...

    Stress bars?

    So, I got my Quaker a bit over a week ago, he’s (we don’t know the actual gender yet) about 5-6 months old. I noticed he has a lot of feathers that look similar to stress bars, and I was wondering if this is because he’s young or for another reason? He’s on a diet of zupreem natural pellets and...

    Need a name!

    I’m hopefully going to bring home a blue Quaker this weekend if everything goes smoothly and I need a name. I’m not sure if he’s a male or female (I’m just calling him a he) and I need a name! Names I’m considering are Milo, Cashew, Mango, and Hyacinth, but I’m open to new suggestions!

    I am desperate

    My blue female Quaker, Skittles, has been biting out her feathers and I can't for the life of me find out why, so I figured why not ask the experts? As of April 1st, 2021, Skittles was a happy, healthy parrot that spent more time inside with us on the dinner table, on the lamps in the living...

    Should i get a quaker for 6 month old BHC?

    Hi, I have a male 6 month old BHC (hand reared) and want to get a quaker. i have two large cages but he's only fond of one. I know you can't exactly trust your birds, even though he doesn't display any agressive behaviour towards strangers or other animals. even if they don't get along, they can...

    Rescue with mites

    I generally rehab wild mammals. I’ve done a few wild birds but none that were abandoned or abused pets. Someone brought me a quaker parrot/parrotlet recently and all parrot rescue facilities remotely close to me were full and the really good one had a waiting list. So for the time being I have...

    11 week old Quaker is suddenly afraid of me

    Hello, I have an 11 week old quaker parrot (my first ever) that has been nothing but snuggly and friendly towards me since I got him at 7 weeks old. He would look for me and preen me and want to spend every waking moment with me. Yesterday, in order to have him be closer to the commotion of my...

    Pictures Is my quakers toe a cause for concern?

    hi, first timer here, I was wondering if my 12-week old male Quakers toe was something to worry about, I only got him recently (2 weeks ago) and I'm pretty sure he had this before then. I've never noticed him being bothered by it or in any pain but it just looks so different to his other nails...

    Evil Laughter

    I swear most parrots have an evil laugh. My Quaker, Monty, has the most evil laugh ever. He even makes what I call a giraffe neck while doing it and leans forward. Parrots sound like the antagonist in every story.

    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...

    Planning to home a 4 year old Quaker.

    I’m planning to home a 4 year old Quaker from an 18 year old who is finishing his final years of high school. He and I have called and discussed the logistics and the profile of the bird. I am wondering and needing assistance with the information I’ve received, what I need to look out for and...

    Introducing a new bird to a quaker parrot

    Hello! I currently have a one-year old quaker parrot (and no other pets) whom I love dearly. His name is Tico :) I was thinking about getting a Golden Conure at some point in the future (maybe in the next year or two), but I was wondering if anyone has experience introducing a golden conure (or...

    Thinking of getting a third bird. IRN, Quaker, or Conure?

    I don’t really know which forum to post this so I hope it’s ok to post here, but I have a 3yo Jenday conure and a ~12yo pineapple Green Cheek conure and we want a third baby to our flock. We have 3 different ideas, an Indian Ringneck, a Quaker, or a different conure. We obviously have the most...
