Quaker Parrot
Hi everyone. My husband and I are retired Air-Force. I found a Quaker Parrot in my backyard about 3 1/2 - 4 weeks ago. It is very talkative and friendly, my son, husband and I are all able to pet it (though I know my son is it’s favorite, it sits on his shoulder lol). Anyways, I have been searching and posting everywhere to try and help this bird find its family. I have had no responses from anyone and there are no bird rescues here in Arkansas so I am giving the bird away to someone who wants it. I thought there’s no better place to post than on a forum where people love birds. I want it to have a good home and not be sold for hundreds of $. I am only asking that I get reimbursed for the cage, toys, and food that I have bought for it. Costs are close to $225. I bought a really nice used cage that is 5’ tall and toys at petsmart. Please let me know if anyone is interested.

A crossover Quaker Scuti (F), A Sun conure name TBD (?), A Cinnamon Green Cheek conure name TBD (?), and 6 budgies, Scuti Jr. (f), Blue (m), yellow (m), clark Jr. (f), and two babies name TBD (f&f).
Have you contacted local vets?

I'd also post in newspaper but not give the color of the quaker so your not scammed... Keep details out.

As a heartbroken mom to a lost quaker....thank you so very much for trying to find this one's family .

I looked on parrot 911 alert and saw you had posted him. Unfortunately sometimes people who have lost parrots don't know of this resource, and reverse sometimes people who find parrots are unaware of the resource.

Many people also think their escaped parrot won't survive for more than a few days abd give up. When parrots can and do survive for months.

I wish the best in finding a home for this gorgeous soul. And very much appreciated you kindness and rescue.

If you were a little close I'd probably try abd him to my flock of 3

I did call all of the local vets within 100 miles of me and none of them had anyone looking for one. I also had my vet check to see if it had a micro- chip and he/she didn’t. I found a home for the bird today. The lady’s older daughter has had a Quaker in the past so she is aware of all the ins and outs of how to take care of one. I felt bad letting the bird go but I also felt confident that it will be loved and taken care of. Thanks for all the feedback from everyone.
