9 / 18

buying through a newspaper can be risky at times, particularly for the inexperienced and the first-time buyers of Quaker Parrots. Although you can pick from birds of all categories and ages, there are some conventions you must follow.

Those interested in buying a baby bird should definitely pay a visit to the breeding facility. However, if you are looking for an older Quaker Parrot, you must assess its behavioral history and vet/ medical history. This will arm you against potential problems in the future that may surface once you buy the bird.

Rescue Groups

Rescue groups take in unwanted Quaker Parrots that have suffered from medical or behavioral problems. It is unfortunate that these poor birds are left to themselves by their human owners once they develop behavioral problems. These birds are then put up for adoption. They are considered for those that meet the strict adoption criteria set by these rescue groups. Most rescue groups will want you to take bird-care classes with them before they hand over a bird to you. Note this. You are willingly bringing home an older bird, which may bring its own problems along with it. The advantage of this situation is if you experience any problem with the bird after taking it home, you can seek support from the rescue organization. They will be glad to provide help, support and advice.

If you are under the impression purchasing the bird is the only cost involved in beginning a life with Quaker Parrots, think again. Following is the list of the initial expenses you have to bear once you have bought the Quaker Parrot of your choice.:
