The Quaker Parrot (Monk Parakeet) may be the best Parrot.

THE Quaker's speaking ability is considered by many, to be in the Top Ten of Speaking Birds. Many of the more popular Parrots, don't have much of a personality. They may speak a bit clearer, with a few more phrases, but personality? Not so much!
This little guy will keep you on your toes.................... What's that your eating? I want some!.....Where you goin'? Take me with you!!!!! I Love to sing!! Teach me a song. The Nest Building is Unique to the Quaker Parrot (monk Parakeet). Give him some materials, and watch him go!
Don't let your Shepard, or Siameese around!!! They'll be chased down the hall, by this little bundle of feathers.

The Quaker's speaking ability is astounding!

SMOOCHES' cage cover is an orange towel. He knows it as "My Baby". Time appropriate, he says, "You got my Baby", "Here's your Baby", "We go Beddie-Bie". It's now time for "Peek-a-boo".
The "Time Appropriate Speech" is rare to any "Mimicking Birds" While the Quaker does mimic many sounds , there are many things you may hear from the Quaker, You won't hear from most other Parrots.
While your washing your hands, or maybe some Vegies, "Whatcha doin'". Maybe if you leave the room, "Where ya goin'", "I Love You", "I miss You", or maybe just a "big wet kiss". We can't forget "Come 'ere"!!!!
The Quaker Parrot is definitely a "HUGE PARROT, in a TINY BODY"
If your thinking about placing a bird into your home, don't overlook "The Quaker Parrot"!

Parrot-Bird Cages

Parrot Cages Bird Cages

Your Quaker Parrot's bird cage will become his "personal space". Eventually, the space surrounding the cage will be included in that personal space. Quakers can be very territorial. "This is my space!" followed by unwanted behavior, such as bites, or screaming.

Moving, and/or exchanging Toys and Perches can aid in calming this territorial behavior.

SMOOCHES, my girlfriend's Quaker said his first word about 22 hrs. after coming home. "WHAT!!!!!!!" Now, at about two years, "what r ya doin'" has become his excited/discomfort word.

For the passed year and a half, little to no change has been made in, or around his cage. He is becoming very territorial and bity. If something in the surrounding area is moved, "WHAT!!!!!!". If something new is introduced, "WHAT!!!!", usually followed by a bite, if your in reach.The other night, I tried to introduce a new toy. We  were on the floor. When I brought it out, and began to play with it, he ran for the hills screaming "WHAT R YA DOIN???!!!!!!" over and over.

Making frequent changes in and out of the cage will make for a calmer stabler Quaker.

Another thing to think about, is cage size. Recommended minimum is 18x18x24. This space, basically, allows enough room to stretch the wings, and not touch beak and tail on the bars. Maybe enough space for a perch and a toy.

Your Quaker can live 20+ years. This space is comparable to you spending your whole life in the bathroom. Wouldn't you be more comfy confined to the space of the livingroom? Please consider this, when choosing a cage for your fid.

Here you can choose from many shapes, sizes, and colors. Which will suit you and your fid the best?
