He's very skittish and doesn't let my hands by him, he won't step up unless I have a treat and it's a wood dowel...

    QP Highly Territorial and Sitting at Bottom of Cage

    Hello. My Quaker parrot, Gumi, has been acting differently than usual lately. She’s 3 years old and usually hangs on the bars of the cage, but recently she’s been sitting at the bottom. She’s also become highly territorial, lunging and screeching at the cats from within her cage whenever they...

    So I have had my quaker parrot Boogie for about 4 months now and it’s definitely nothing like I expected. She bonded with me almost immediately which was great but she is aggressive towards my other bird, in hindsight I definitely should’ve done more research and now I think the birds not...

    Houdini loves me... aggressively

    I have a quaker named Houdini who is about a year old. I remember being so thrilled when she first let me hold her, but now I can't seem to get her off of me. This wouldn't be an issue if she wasn't hurting me. She likes to preen my hair but she does it so aggressively that she's pulling my hair...

    Adjusting is hard, but I'll always love you

    Yoshi was a rambunctious 9 year old little devil—he ruled the house and he knew it. I have cats and dogs and they all begged and listen to the all-powerful Quaker. He somehow convinced my dogs his food was dog-treats, and often had them begging and doing tricks for him. The cats ignored him, and...

    I'm a first time bird owner with a two year old quaker parrot named Nyx who is the light of my life.
