Your Quaker will be with you for many, many years. Are you willing to put in the time and effort it requires to make your Quaker’s life happy and healthy? Are you willing to arm yourself with the knowledge, determinations, and discipline it takes to keep a Quaker as a pet? Quakers are intelligent, complex creatures that need plenty of patience, understanding and attention from their owners.
There’s nothing more heart-breaking than to see one of these lovable bundles of energy swapped around from home to home because its owners couldn’t take full responsibility for it. So then what’s so great about keeping a Quaker as a pet? Quaker owners delight in their bird’s companionship is cited as the most common.
Just ask anyone who has one, and you’ll get an earful of praise, love and pride about his or her feathered companion, along with picture galore! You may end up wishing you hadn’t asked! Quakers offer us affection and loyalty with “no strings attached”, even more so than other species of birds. They are very friendly and playful, and the most outgoing birds I have ever encountered.
They depend on us for their good health and happiness, and we rely on them for comfort and enjoyment. Having a Quaker for a pet is unlike any experience you have ever imagined. A relationship with a Quaker as an avian pet is truly and exceptional one, and one you will treasure forever.
Everyone who has ever cared for and loved a Quaker should be given a medal. After all, who puts up with the antics of these so-called “tiny terrors” every day and is still “in love” with his feathered friend? These fun-loving creatures will at times try your patience to the limits, and the next minute will make you wonder how you ever lived without one! And although most Quakers are happy-go-lucky birds, there are some requirements for your relationship to get off on the right foot.
