Identified as a Quaker Parrot

Ok we were given this bird (Molly)and male Cockatiel (Mr. Wilson) a little over a year ago. Shortly after receiving the birds the male Mr. Wilson began to lay eggs, so we found her a mate and had the parrot sexed.

We were told by a pet store that Molly was actually a male Mexican green. Today (He) lade an egg. After a little research I see no reference to such a breed. Can some one tell us what we may have so we can get her a mate?

That is indeed a quaker. No offense, but cages should be cleaned daily.

You have a Quaker parrot. I do NOT suggest that you purchase a mate. Breeding birds is not fun and games. You stand the possibility of both your bird and the babies dying if you do not know how to care for them in emergency situations that come up.

Also, unless you take your birds, even the babies, to an avian vet you would not be considered a reputable breeder. You would want to issue a health guarantee to your customers, showing that an avian vet has examined the birds and said they are healthy. LOTS to being a good breeder.

I suggest that you purchase fake eggs and read the article Chronic Egg Laying, for more information on how to care for your bird in this situation. - the Egg Shop
