My question is:We have a 8 month old quaker parrot. He doesn't want to say much. Up up, and he imitates the kids scream, and has two different laughs. Am I doing something wrong? I have a "talky bird" recorder that I put phrases on. I read about people who have quakers that talk earlier than this. Is he normal? Also, he has a high pitched chirp that almost makes your ears bleed. I've tried whispering to him, scolding him, showering him, and covering him. Nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

My question is: We have a Blue Front Amazon. We have to trim the beak about once a month. Is there a vitiman suppliment to curb this problem? The other two birds we have don't have this problem.

My question is: My girlfriend and I have had our quaker for two years, but recently, he's developed a growth on his beak that seems to be closing his left nnostril. We are very worried and before we go to a vet, could someone please give us some insight?

Hi all. I live in Tortola and would like to get a Ring Necked parrot. Does anyone know where I can get one in this area.

Hi all. I am in Southern California and we recently had a small earthquake, the first
one I recall since we got our macaw, Woody, six months ago (he is about 1 year old now)

Anyway, the earthquake woke me up and I heard Woody flapping around in his cage.
I uncovered him and he was extremely distressed. I calmed him down and put him back
to bed. When I woke up the next morning he was still clinging to the side of the cage
where I left him. Since then, that's how he sleeps (I'm assuming he sleeps when we do).
Every morning when I uncover him he is on the side of the cage. I can tell from his
droppings he's been there all night. Is this OK? I've tried a few nights to put him on
his perch, where he used to sleep, whenever I get up to use the restroom. It hasn't worked.
He does use his perch during the day and he is eating fine. What, if anything, should I do?

I have a yellow nape amazon parrot and he used to eat a bird food called "Abba" until I found out that the sunflower seeds were no good for him. So I switched to a new food called "Safflower Gold". The problem is, my parrot keeps throwing the food out of his cage! Can you suggest a bird food that he will eat and enjoy without having to vacuum my carpet everyday? Any help would be appreciated!

I have a beautiful 18 weeks old Quaker that I need to find a new home for.
He's much louder than expected, and the apartment tenants do not appreciate
him at all. He's been checked out by a vet within the last couple weeks and is
in perfect health. I've only had him for 4 weeks now. He's beginning to talk
and he's ever so freindly. I hate to part with him, but I think I must.
Everything is included with him too (food, treats, toys, cage, perches, etc - cage
is 5' by 3' by 2'). I would like to get some of my money back since it's only
been 4 weeks...I figure $350.00 for everything was a fair price (as it is
valued at over $700.00). Please, let me know if you are interested.
Time is of the essence. Thank you.

we bought a quaker as a baby and a year later bought a 2 year old conure.
just in the last week the quaker will not let us touch the conure.
he will bite us now and has never done that before. the conure will come to us if the quaker is not around but not if he is there. we do not know the gender of either one. the quaker is so fiercely protective of the conure; help! what should we do?
