What's So Great About Quaker Parrots
Quaker Parrots; You Either Love Them Or Hate Them
I've had Boom Boom, my quaker parrot, for about two years now. I bought her from a breeder and finished hand-feeding her until she was properly weened. I ripped her toe off by mistake. We've moved across country together. My Quaker Parrot and I have been through a lot together and if there's one thihg I've learned it's that you either love them or hate them. Me? I'm lover not a hater.
Quaker Parrots are the best talkers for the size and price. Actually, I think their small stature in comparison to some of the larger "talkers" is actually more convenient. They make less of a mess.
Boom Boom was saying "step up" and "hi" within 2 weeks of bringing him home and he was mimicking whistles even before that!
Quaker Parrots will let you know when they want something, when they're happy and when they're pissed.
There's hardly a moment in my apartment when I'm moving around or doing something that's completely boring that Boom Boom isn't watching my every move. When I pack my bags he mimics the zipper sound. When I'm working (like now) he is bobbing his head and making the "key tapping" noise...the keyboard.
