Quaker parrot supply list
by: Tracie

This is what I would want, if I were getting a Quaker parrot...

1) The largest cage I could afford. It would have a play top, to expand it's territory when I am home and in the room. The bars would be 3/4" - 5/8" spaced apart and no more.

2) For perches, I would have at least 1 Rope Boing and possibly a rope perch too. Throw away wood dowels that come with the cage!)

3) The other perches, for healthy feet and trimmed nails, would be natural wood branches and a Safe Pedicure Perch at the feeding station, watering station and favorite toy.

Keep in mind with perches, that they do NOT have to go from side to side in the cage. You just need to place them so that the bird can get around the cage for exercise and they won't be pooping on things below. A rope boing either down the middle or at each end of the cage works well.

4) Provide a variety of toys, some to chew and destroy and some to bang and swing around. Quakers naturally love to weave, so providing straws may encourage it to weave them in the cage bars for joy. You can just remove them once in a while and let it start over.

5)Most important is diet Do NOT feed cheap pellets, they are full of chemicals and sugar and will only result in an unhealthy bird and a shorter life. Feed Harrison's or Roudybush pellets for 80% of it's diet.
