Kaytee is my 4 year old quaker. My daughter gave her to me for Christmas when she was only 3 months old. She is just precious and talks so much. She tells us "Good morning" and she even lets me know when she is ready to go to bed by saying, "Ready to go to bed? Give Daddy a kiss." Also she loves to build with clothes pens. As she builds, she says, "You're so busy...busy, busy, busy."

She coughs, laughs, and even blows her nose. She loves to make the sound of a zipper.

When our other quaker, Scooby, gets scared and squawks, Kaytee tells him, "It's OK. You OK?" One morning as I was pouring my coffee, she asked, "What are you doing, huh?" I explained that I was fixing my coffee and she asked, "Is it good?"

Quakers are like children. Since my husband is retired, she gets lots of attention. Quakers are fun, but they need responsible owners.

I just purchased a Quaker.b what size cage should I purchase. And any advise?

Editor's note: You need to post your questions under the Parrot Questions section. Purchase the largest cage you can afford that has a bar spacing of (and no larger) 3/4 inch or 5/8 inch.
