Re: banned in certain states

Another tidbit...

I was ordering some stuff from MySafeBirdStore in New Jersey. The clerk inquired what kind of bird I had, and then informed me that Quakers and Patagonians are banned in that state, too, based on that same philosophy that both species are adaptable and resistant to harsh climates, and therefore are a feral population danger.

Or, the feral population of Double Yellow-Headed Amazons of Stuttgrat, which is located in southwestern Germany that has been established for 30 plus years with a 2018 population of over 60 parrots. Always check your local laws!

Re: banned in certain states

Wowzers, I doubt most non-parront-people would even think about parrots having feral populations in places like Europe and Northern US. We perceived them as jungle denizens.
Thanks for this info.

I was not aware of that. I've known about the Quakers and have visited their colonies, but had no idea that the Rickybirds were also banned from the state.

Thank you for that lil tidbit Gail.

Re: banned in certain states

Most states are coming around, I live in one of the last ones (Pennsylvania and New Jersey) where they are totally illegal as pets or breeders, though this year PA is supposedly finally changing the law for not only pet Quakers, but also for pet Primates, Sugar Gliders, and Hedgehogs...It's ridiculous anyway, there aren't any feral colonies of Quakers in PA at all and never have been, but PA is a weird state when it comes to pets. I have been claiming Lita as a source of income on my taxes since I got her, which allows me to be able to purchase a permit to legally keep her as a pet here...I can't wait to not have to pay for a permit to keep her here...It's a pain...Not that I agree with keeping Capuchin Monkeys, Marmosets, Lemurs, Galagos, Kinkajus, etc. as pets at all, but they are all grouped into the same pet statute that includes all the Primates, the Kinkaju, the Sugar Gliders, the Hedgehog, and then all the "rodent" pets such as Prairie Dogs (who actually make wonderful pets), Skunks, Squirrels, etc. Skunks apparently make wonderful pets too, very similar to a cross between a cat and a dog...And Prairie Dogs are apparently amazing little pets that people build huge indoor-enclosures for out of plexiglass and have entire colonies living inside their homes...

I had no idea that Patagonian Conures were illegal to own as pets in some states...

Re: banned in certain states

If global warming continues...we actually should be happy with any species that survives the 'new' challenging environment, because we will lose so many long time established species because of it.


The list of animals we are not allowed to keep as pets keeps growing but nobody will do anything about the millions of surplus house/barn/etc.cats that are slaughtering the protected/endangered native species...

Re: banned in certain states

Yeah, poor ol' Rickeybirds can't hang out in the Garden State. I know of no actual feral populations in the continental US, though. The NJ bird store lady noted that Quakers are extremely popular (and therefore amenable/vulnerable to escape and feral proliferation), whereas Patagonians aren't very 'common' (uhhh, I think that means 'popular').
