Hi I’m Tango and I am at Quaker parakeet! My previous owner had to give me up because I was too bold and too comfortable running around on the floor chasing the other animals and she was afraid I would get eaten by the dog!
I am very sweet and love to sit on your shoulder while you work and go about household duties. I step up well from my cage most of the time. My foster mama thinks I have a lot more words hidden away because so far I’ve only told her “Good boy Tango!” and “Tango! Tango!”
Unfortunately I am on a seed diet and trying to learn to like this stuff called pellets. I really like fresh fruit and vegetables though- especially raisins! I also feel scared of foot toys, but my foster brothers are showing me there’s nothing to be afraid of.
Like most Quakers, I may choose one person in the home as my favorite. I also would do better in a home with no children (or older children) and one without other animals (although I do get along with my foster brothers who are also parrots). Will you give me a forever home please???
Hatch Date: approx 2008
Hi I’m Peter! I am a 5½ year old female Quaker Parrot. My former owners thought I was a boy until I laid an egg! I was too stressed with children in my home and I began plucking a lot. I’m much calmer now with my foster mom and her two birds.
I like a lot of attention and prefer to be on your shoulder hanging out as much as possible! Just like most Quakers, I vocalize a lot and like to be able to see you. My previous owner taught me lots of words and phrases such as “Good job Peter, good job!”, “Nice to meet you Peter, nice to meet you!”, “Say thank you Peter!”, “Here, kitty, kitty, kitty, kitty!” and many more. I even lift my wings for you to tickle me if you say “Tickle, tickle, tickle!”. I step up from my cage well most of the time but am still working on it. Once I get to know you I like head scratches too. I love to shred toys and am learning what these things called “foot toys” are for.
I’m on a healthy pellet diet but love all kinds of fruit and veggies. My absolute favorite treats are pistachios (without the salt of course) and if I see that bag I will go into a happy dance!
I would do best in a home without children and, like many Quakers, I usually bond with one person the most. I do well with men and women.
