4 month old quaker not active or vocal

(Jax,Fl)

I just purchased a 4 month old Quaker Parrot at a Bird show and I have a very large cage for him but he is not active he stays in one corner of the cage and is not vocal he does eat and drink and seems to be healthy. When I take him out(he learned Step Up in one day) he tries to fly back to the cage in his corner. Should I worry? Does he need to get used to us?It has only been 2 days.

New bird not active

Yes, this is normal behavior. You will have to earn the bird's trust. I know it is very hard, but try to be patient and not push the bird to do things it is not ready to do. Reward the bird when it gets on your hand with a hulled sunflower seed or something special.

I have some articles in on our Parrot Training page that might be helpful too.

I am sure you will eventually be great friends and have a great life together. :-)
