banned in certain states

I live in Kentucky but really want a quaker parrot. Not sure if they're still banned here and don't understand why. I know one person that has one and says you can have them in Kentucky as long as it's just a pet and I'm not breeding or selling. Does anyone know or know where find this information? Thanks

Re: banned in certain states

I ran a quick google search, and unfortunately on all the sites I found they said it is illegal in Kentucky to own one there, whether as a pet or a breeder. I am not sure how old these links that I found are, though.

Re: banned in certain states

That is totally weird. What is the reasoning behind it? Must be some crazy person who doesn't like birds. Quakers are beautiful and wonderful little birds. What a crazy world.....

Re: banned in certain states

From what I found on google search........ and this is really shocking to me

Because of concern that these birds might become established agricultural pests and that they represent a threat to native species in the local environments, they are illegal to own or to sell in California, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Hawaii, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Wyoming. They are legal to own, but illegal to sell or breed in Connecticut. They are legal to own with registration and banding in New York, and legal to own with breeder or seller registration in Virginia.

Re: banned in certain states

Here are a couple links that may answer your questions. This says Quakers are illegal to OWN or sell in Kentucky.

There are so many people disregarding the laws when it comes to exotic pets. I've seen them here before in CA, where they're illegal too.

Re: banned in certain states

As a species, Quaker parrots or Monk Parakeets, absolutely fascinate me. They are legal in Texas, if that changes, I'll be forced to move. All our major cities have at least a couple of wild colonies. For those who are interested, here's another interesting link.

Re: banned in certain states

I can't imagine them ever being illegal in Texas since we have so many wild ones.

Lol Karen, I think they even outnumber the wild hog population in Texas.

Re: banned in certain states

From my understanging, Quakers are extremely adaptable. So if they get loose they can survive the weather. They are also avid nest builders and live in colonies. The nests can be huge and they are nest aggressive. They can build and take out a powerline in a short time. They can cause a lot of damage. While I have a Quaker and love him dearly...and he's an awesome pet, I respect that these are hearty birds and smart. But if they get loose, they create a lot of havoc.
