I recently was given a quaker parrot and was told it was about 6 - 10 months old. Is there any way to approximate the age ?
Thank you..

Richard, no there is no sure fire way to tell age unless the bird is really, really old.

Your new bird needs to be checked over by an Avian Vet in your area to make sure he is in good health. So make an appointment soon as you can and take your new friend to vet to make sure he has no infections, parasites or other problems that will show up in blood tests.

Thanks for writing, and your new bird is now YOUR responsibility, so give him good food, a safe large enough cage, safe toys and perches made from branches so his feet feel good. When he needs to go to the Avian vet, take him. Birds should be seen at least once a year so vet can do a few tests to make sure bird is healthy and not having any physical problems.

Take good care of your new little bird, as he is looking up to you to do the very best you can for him.Read books about your bird and learn all you can about the care of parrots.
