Quakers are very affectionate birds and display affection towards their flock mates partners and offspring.

While the personality and appearance of Quakers are great attributes they are not always the best choice for every family. They are pack rats and may have a tendency to pick up objects and play with them. However if you’re not sure that a bird will suit your household rescue a parrot! It’s usually cheaper to adopt a quaker from a rescue group than to buy one from a parrot shelter. Nevertheless it’s important to remember that you’re not going to own one yourself. Unless you’ve been around other birds before and know how to care for a bird you’ll likely have a difficult time handling a quaker.

Don't worry. I'll let you in on all of it `-)
