We recently moved from South Carolina to Tennessee. Once here in Tennessee I found out my sweet Snickers isn't allowed in this state. It breaks my heart to re home her but I would much rather her go to someone who loves Quakers than go to a Zoo or worse. She will come with her cage, toys, food and stand. She is very sweet and deserves a good home!!!
I am sorry to hear about your plight. I'm in Australia, so can't help you out, but there are many members on this Forum who are active in rescues and/or rehoming and who care deeply about the birds and animals they endeavour to assist. I'm sure they will reply to your post.
Make sure to double check on that because some social media sites will say Quakers are not allowed in certain states but it's not always true. I had heard the same thing where I live yet seen so many people on social media sites and people I know that do have Quakers where I live. I called the game warden to find out about this. It was not PET Quakers. It applies to wild birds. So before you rehome your love please double check on that ! Some birds are considered pest if in the wild because they damage crops. It doesn't always pertain to pet birds. Please double check to make sure. Check with your Game Warden FIRST before rehoming and then finding out later it wasn't true. That would be so heart breaking. Besides that they don't have bird patrol that is going to knock on your door to find out if you have a Quaker. It usually pertains to a large population of birds not just 1 bird.
I was going to say the same thing as lynn40. Sometimes it doesn't apply to people that already own quaker pets.
But, y'know, even if it DID, personally, there's no way I'd give up our bird just to satisfy some state's asinine regulation. They don't have quaker patrols that go home to home looking for violations. This is one of those instances where I would probably become a scofflaw.
Hmmmmmm this is crazy? A state not allowing a bird that most other states do allow? I am moving to Pennsylvania near Philadelphia so I hope my Quaker Parrot will be allowed in the Quaker State? <smile>
Truthfully is the bird doesn't clam down a bit with the sqwaking, he isn't gonna be seeing the Quaker State???
There is no logic to the situation, but PA is a place where they are not legal. A recent post on the Introductions board tells what happened to one poor family very recently - see Lost My Quaker Baby Bird. Their vet informed on them to the state authorities. The bird was taken from them and placed in a bird sanctuary.
What have you been trying with Captain on the squawking?

One thing to consider when deciding to break the law and bring your babies to a state that doesnt allow them.. IF they are discovered, they will be taken from you and euthanized. Period. There was a huge stink about this in the newspaper a few years ago, in PA, matter of fact, where they took an elderly lady's pet quaker away, the lady was like 92 or something like that. It was awful.
