    Crooked wing, is this normal?

    I adopted a 10 year old Quaker 3 days ago and I noticed that one of her wings looks a bit crooked. Her previous owner mentioned that she used to clip her wings but hasn’t done it for a while now. I wanted to see if this is normal or not. She only tried to fly once so far. I think she is still...

    Biting

    I have a problem with my newest parrot- a quaker. He is a 2yo male. He likes to hang out with people, will sing, and fly to you to check out what are you doing. The thing is- whenever there's a piece of skin in his reach, he will start preening and then biting really hard out of nowhere. He...

    Obsessive preening

    My quaker parrot which I have had for about 3 weeks now, is obsessed with preening me. I'm not even joking. Once he got comfortable with me, it started with hands- he plucked out dead skin and sometimes even hair. Sometime later he moved to my face and today he insisted on licking my teeth...
