Quakers are energetic, goofy, and playful. They can learn to talk and typically love affection. They enjoy being out of the cage and can make strong bonds with their human companions.
Quakers Parrots are affectionate birds who will get along with just about anyone. As with all parrots they must be socialized to keep this personality they’re so well known for. They’re green with a grey face, neck, and chest. They grow to be 12 inches long.
They live 15 to 20 years, and some even older due to modern healthier diets, exercise, and mental stimulation. Quakers are quite hardy and make magnificent companion birds. When well-supervised they can make great pets for older children also.

Feeding & Care
A Quaker’s diet should consist of 70% pellets, 30% fresh fruit & veggies.
They need daily social interaction, both direct with members of your household and indirect out of cage time where they can see and be part of your “flock.” When socialized properly, a Quaker can become a great talker and is regarded as one of the best talking parrots similar to that of an African Grey. If not adequately socialized, Quakers are prone to becoming cage aggressive.
They love to chew, which is why they need a variety of toys to keep them mentally stimulated, and from getting bored, which can lead to self-mutilation.
They need a variety of differently sized perches to help exercise and stretch their feet.
Do not feed birds fruit seeds, avocados, chocolate, onions, apple seeds, uncooked beans, uncooked rice, alcohol, or caffeine as these can cause serious medical problems, and kill them.
