My new quaker

Sponsored Links
This is Gamora. We've had her for 4 days and we sure love her already!!

I am pretty sure she meows and she says step up. Also thought I heard her say what ya doing, today.

Do quakers talk a lot, if so how soon do they learn new things?

Re: My new quaker

Gamora is a beauty! I'm not familiar with Quakers, but they seem to have bold personalities.

I know of one that talks quite well, if not in embarrassing fashion! One of our beloved former moderators, Allee, shared a long story of her "Harry." I guarantee it is an enjoyable and worthy read!! When Harry Met Allee

Re: My new quaker

Congratulations!!! Such a pretty name to! Is your baby young or is it an older bird? I got my baby at seven weeks and he started talking at 9 weeks, and he spends most if the day talking, and repeating the words he has learned. Some he learns after hearing once some take much longer. I also got a rescue a few days ago, and she is quite vocal, sone are just loud car alarm and barking, not sure all she knows yet, but can say good birdie, pretty birdie, and one cuss words . They love to play with toys lots and lots of toys. I think you'll have no problems with talking, but all birds are different.

Re: My new quaker

We think she's younger, but aren't positive. We were told 6-9 months. Is there a way to figure out age? She is named after Gamora from Guaridans of the Galaxy, because she is green

Re: My new quaker

I love the name! Love the movie! She does look young. They seem to like context when learning words. Neptune asked me what are you doing when I was cooking, I said cooking, now when he sees me at the stove he says cooking! I'm sure she'll talk up a storm, if after a few days she has already spoken for you.

Re: My new quaker

I'm sure you've read they can develop very strong territorial agression of their cage as they mature. So it's good to teach her now to step out onto a perch attached to the outside of the cage now. Because it will pay off later, abd don't take it personally, they are still sweet away from their territory.

Re: My new quaker

She comes out of her cage on her own. We don't mess with her inside her cage.

Re: My new quaker

She's adorable!

The only way to confirm age is if the breeder has records and a way to keep track of all the babies - aka leg bands. Other than that, once a bird is fully weaned and in adult plumage, there's no way to visually tell a healthy 20 year old bird apart from a 1 or 5 year old bird! 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!
