    Re: The Problem With Quakers

    I wanted to get a quaker and got a parrotlet. Still wanting a quaker I got a canary winged parakeet *bee bee parrot*
    I don't want a quaker any more!
    The bee bee parrots are similar but not as loud. Thank God for that!!

    Re: The Problem With Quakers

    I have a Quaker and she is one of the sweetest birds I've ever owned.I got her as a baby and finished hand feeding her myself so she bonded with me.She is quieter than my Lovebirds and only calls when she wants me otherwise she is busy building her nest over and over again.We just give her sticks and she is happy to keep building.I had another Quaker years ago that I hand fed also and she was really sweet too.I think Quakers would be a good first parrot for someone experienced with lovebirds or cockatiels.In Canada Quakers are not cheap to buy as they cost anywhere from $550.to over $800. in some pet stores in my area.

    Hi, Carol, and welcome to the community! Has your Quaker ever laid eggs? I think it would be neat to sit and watch her make her nest with the sticks. Hope to see you around the forum!

    I wished California allowed Quakers to live here, they are such beautiful birds. Lucky you to own one Carol.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    I have a green cheek conure he is lovely but is very noisy when he wants attention he has a sqwark I can only describe as a scream I too was told by the shop that green cheek conures were quiet birds. I have got used to his noise within reason but the cheekyness and the way he is with the family override the noise problems.

    Re: The Problem With Quakers

    I agree, Quakers are not for everyone. My Harry's idea of a good time is making as much as his tiny body is capable of. That being said, he is pretty much my best friend when he's in the right mood! People say birds are like ever lasting toddlers, but Quakers are the worst of toddlers and teenagers combined! Definitely not a beginner bird!

    Re: The Problem With Quakers

    My first bird was a quaker named Neeko. He was a super sweet, good natured little fellow who went around shouting "I'm an eagle" at the top of his voice. He was a quirky little bird! Quakers are a lot of personality in a tiny little package and they get LOUD. Definately not for everyone. But if you can handle the racket they are sweethearts.
