Max and Pete are both male Quaker parrots currently in our foster program.
Both are young adults and tame.
Both birds ‘step up” and exhibit behavior typical of Quaker Parrots.
Petey is more tame then Max but only because his foster dad has had more time to work with him.
Petey loves taking a bath and has started trying out some words. He also laughs when their daughter and his wife do.
Petey has a good diet that includes seed and a wide variety of fruits, veggies and even homemade yogurt.
Max is doing well too. Max came to us with a serious biting problem, he just wanted to bite every hand that reached for him.
His foster dad has worked hard with him all summer and that biting is now down to an occasional nipping!
Things to know about Quaker Parrots:
They are always on the go, they are active. They will hang from one foot while playing with a toy with the other foot. They love to play.
Lifespan: up to 20 years!
They have been banned in some states. Why? because they are amorous birds who proliferate quickly so there are fears they will take over, ruin corps and run native wildlife out of town.
Quakers are hardy birds!
NOISY: They are notoriously loud and noise birds. They love to talk and can learn to sing and quote verse. They are
fearless, intelligent and vociferous, having the ability to imitate not only words, but all kinds of sounds such as the vacuum cleaner, telephone and cat’s meow.
They are hilarious!
Diet: They eat a wide variety of foods along with pellets and seeds. This helps keep them healthy, happy and allows them to live longer.
BONDING: they bond, normally to just one person. And for that person they will do anything!
This is a great companion bird.
