For anyone interested in breeding birds, whether they be a novice or boast years of experience. I think the Quaker is an excellent choice for many reasons. I found that they are, by far, the easiest of all birds to breed. For one, the cost associated with starting a hobby or business of breeding birds will be considerably less, due to the availability of these birds and their very reasonable purchase price. And unlike some other birds who can be unusually picky, a Quaker will usually bond quite closely with any mate provided to them–the only minor problem being that to provide a suitable mate, you will almost certainly have to have them surgically sexed or DNA tested to ensure that you do indeed have both a male and a female!
The increased demand for Quakers as their popularity has grown is another reason they are an excellent choice, and their ability to withstand extreme temperatures makes breeding them a viable option for almost anyone, regardless of the climate. The following information that I am providing on breeding is based mostly on my personal experiences and is in no way intended as a complete and comprehensive guide to breeding and raising Quakers.
Rather it is simply a set of guidelines and suggestions offered by the author to increase the reader’s understanding of some of the requirements and expectations when breeding Quakers.
