Known for their charming, comical personalities and their willingness to learn human speech, the Quaker Parrot is an excellent choice for those who want all the fun of a large parrot in a smaller package. They adapt well to living in a “human flock” setting, and enjoy spending time with their owners.
Medium, about 12 inches in length from beak to tail, weighing between 80 and 150 grams.
20 – 30 years in captivity, depending on quality of care.
Quakers are very confident and social 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 hand fed Quakers are quite gentle and many make wonderful pets for younger bird owners.
