She is really only in her cage to sleep. So I figured for sleeping purposes it'd be ok?

Behaviors may be different, but visually speaking, no difference.


Please be careful of those rope perches/toys! The perch itself looks shredded and that can be a potential danger. The hanging rope looks like it twists around itself which is another hazard.

I would also recommend a larger cage, but perhaps you already have plans on getting a larger cage for Gamora, she just doesn't have it yet!

Re: My new quaker

Welcome. Non kidding, that rope perch is just waiting to trap a leg and cause serious harm or even ..... a dead birdie. They are cheap. Your babies are not.

Also, that yellow ball with the slots - stuff it with papers, my parrot loves to pull it out !

Re: My new quaker

If you're home 24/7 then the cage is probably okay, but if you ever leave for any extended period of time, would definitely recommend a larger cage still.

Re: My new quaker

So I have a question.. It's not pertaining to a quaker.. But I was told the cage she was in is too small, which she is rarely in. But would this cage be suitable for lovebirds?

Re: My new quaker

I would say that the cage is a little more well suitable for lovebirds simply because they are smaller.
