Hi. I've owned my Quaker, Cappie since he was a little over 1 year old and he is now 23 years old. He started out being my daughter's bird who decided she no longer wanted him so I immediately took him in and added him to my collection of birds. That was back in the 90's when I owned over a dozen parrots at that time. I was also an active member of the local bird club. Now I have Cappie and a Blue-fronted Amazon that I raised from 6 weeks old who is now 17. I've loved birds since I was very young and also have 2 cats who are very used to the birds. They get along. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to join this foum.
Welcome to you and Cappie, and your Amazon (what's his/her name?). Happy that you've joined us on the Forum. With all your parrot experience, I'm sure you'll have plenty of good advice to offer and lots of fun parrot stories to share.

wow... 23 and 17 years... that's crazy. My quaker just turned a year... Never owned a bird before; never considered owning one. Kind of got tossed in my lap.... a year later and LOTS of money later... I have me a birb with an attitude. lol I'm in other bird groups as well but very few own quakers. Within the last 4 months, there's been 3 other people who've joined that own them. Most people own ringnecks, cockatiels, and macaws. So, I'm just starting out. it's crazy to think how long some birds can live.
Hello! Thank you for introducing yourself and welcome! My first parrot, a Quaker (Charm), is my first, larger parrot. Hoping you have some great insight. IT seems like you have more than ample experience!! Welcome! Mary (Mom to Charm).
