Hi, My name is Sandra and I got my first Quaker from my Sister in March of 2005. His name is Tango. he's 11 years old and he was the meanest little guy I have ever met, but I had to give him a chance. When I brought him home my plan was to just offer him food, water and enjoy him from this side his cage. well one day when I was feeding and watering him he got out and I was terrified. I didn't know what I was going to do. He kept walking towards me and I kept backing up until finally I reached down and he climbed up on my hand (without biting) so I put him on his play pen. Every day we did this and little by little every day we grew closer and closer. So needless to say 6 months later we are now Best Bud's. we shower together and Tango goes shopping with me in the pet pocket I got for Him. He goes to car shows, family events, and he has even gone to Las Vegas with us, LOL. He is my Best Pal ever and I love him. he loves to get and give kisses, he tells me he's a "Good Bird" "Good Boy" "Ma Ma Cracker" "Alright" "Ah Oh" and of course my favorite "Love You". He's so sweet now he brings tears to my eyes and now he's not from biting any more. He likes when I sing How much is that "Birdie" in the window, some times he tries to sing along.

Ozzy, my second ever Quaker, is coo-wel! He loves his toys and likes to chew, but i suppose thats normal as it is their nature. He really wanted a poo once so he did it on my head!! hehe
I have had a Baby Blue Quaker for a month now and he or she? is the Bee Knees I we all love him or her lol to bits. I love how he snuggles up to me and follows me around wherever I go he is always equally as happy with any of the family. I am now hopefully waiting for the first words just like a baby! One thing for sure there is never a dull moment now Pogul is around.Li

I love Quaker Parrots. I raise them and there are so many different colors (and more and more colors being developed). Each has its own personality.
A Quaker is a fantastic bird!
Skittles was my first Quaker parakeet,an adopted bird from a home that
neglected her.She was very cage territorial, but with lots of love,patience,and attention,she has become my best friend.She says a few words that I taught her,imitates my laughter, and loves rock n roll music,dancing along on top of her cage.Hannibal, my second Quaker,I bought from a local pet shop as a baby.Hannibal is a cute,
but clumsy bird,with a sweet disposition.He to is learning how to talk and says "Thankyou" when I change his water,or give him fresh food.Hannibal loves to beat up his yarn and bell toy,and I frequently hear him ringing his bell,chattering merrily away in his funny way.
Nebbish my third Quaker,was also a rescue bird,and was in a bad way when he came to live at my house.
