Quaker parrots are known for their charming, comical personalities and their willingness to learn human speech. It is an excellent choice for bird lovers who want all the fun of a large parrot in a smaller package. They are a very popular pet, good for dedicated beginners, and adapt well to living in a "human flock" setting.

Quakers are very confident and social birdsby nature—they seem to be a very large bird in a little bird's body. Bold and outgoing, they tend to chatter a lot and they are quite active little birds. They love to interact with their "flock" and are known around the world for their exceptional talking ability. In captivity, they tend to bond very closely with one person and are known for their loyal nature. Most handfed Quakers are quite gentle and many make wonderful pets for younger bird owners. 


The only times when Quakers are known to show aggressive tendencies is when they are neglected or their home is threatened. A bored parrot is not fun to be around and these little guys need just as much attention as the bigger birds. Since they do take pride in their home, they can become possessive over their cage as well. If you are introducing another Quaker to one you already have, allow the two to get acquainted in separate cages andform a bondfirst. They have been known to injure "intruders" severely, even resulting in death.


Quakers parrots, are intelligent, comical, and engaging birds with a wonderful zest for life. Their personalities are always "on", and they never seem to wake up on the wrong side of the perch, so to speak.They are very social birds that live in large flocks and nesting communities in the wild. Because they are highly curious and intelligent, it's very important for them to receive plenty of attention.Keeping their cage in the main living area of your home and spending lots of time with these birds will make them feel more a part of the goings-on of the household.
