I have quaker parrot troubles... He is out to get me! lol
I am parrot sitting for my mother and I have quickly learned that quakers are one human birds. While he really is a great bird for my mom. He is her bird only. He somewhat tolerates me.
He talks and laughs and does lots of tricks. This is my time with him so far..

Day 1- Feeding the quaker
He gets a long veggie kabob in the morning with a dish of banana. You would think that he would welcome fresh food and a tasty sweet nanner. Think again. After 30 mins of trying to get the dishes and the kabob out of his cage without loosing an eye, fingers, or chunks of scalp I had to grab the oven mitts. While my husband lured the beast to the opposite side of the cage using a tasty wiggling finger I, (clad in super duty oven mitts) raced in to free the food dishes.
The activity was repeated again when I brought them back.

Time spent feeding the parrot 1 hour.


Day 2- flaming hot poo
My husband can handle keet poo. Its small and easily washed off. He was not prepared for quaker poo. We finally coaxed the bird out of the cage with some sweet talk and a promise that if he would refrain from biting us we would refrain from putting him in the freezer. A shaky truce was signed over a piece of walnut. While feeding Quincy the walnut he lets out a stream of poo into my husbands sandle right between his toes. All I hear is "omg its hot! that is sick! Its in my toes! along with the sounds of dry heaving. I am laughing my rear off and the bird decides that this is funny too and laughs along with us. My husband not amused places the bird back in his cage and limps off gagging.

Day 3- Quaker sounds
Yesturday Quincy spent the day quacking like a duck and shooting things in the house with his star trek laser gun sound. Ptoo Ptoo! Quack Quack... Followed by:
"Where's Mommy?"
"Peek a boo"
"are you bad?... uh huh!"
"pickle pickle tickle"
"come here" and "hi baby" in various levels of screech
This is a huge improvement over the one scream emitted so loud that I swear my ear drums have bled.. just a tiny bit..

Day 4- sneak attack
I went to work early this morning so I did not have time to pay alot of attention to him other than changing his food with the mitts. Time feeding this morning 10 mins! Whoot!
However the servant did not serve the dragon parrot to its liking so, as I was kindly letting him out to fly he decided to sneak attack me. I have an inch long bite mark on my neck. My husband is now convinced that not only is his poo flaming he is vam-parrot as well! Mental note: When quaker sitting wear full body armore at all times and place a long string of garlic around your neck!

What will tomorrow hold in the house of Quaker?? We shall find out soon.. For now enjoy the peek a boo video

aww he is adorable !!! cosmo loves peek a boo as well...

it takes a special talent to handle quakers they are truly demon birds LOL

i know the screech of which you speak and im convinced i now have hearing loss as a result.

if he is goin to be nasty towards you then just let him be ... cosmo has chased y husband down the hallway flapping and screeching with him running like a little girl screaming at me to catch her while tossing chunks of dried mango at her trying to please her... while i doubled over laughing so hard ive lost all muscle control LOL

cosmo hates hats and sunglasses big time and she is used to seeing me with my glasses and one day i took them off cuz she was chewing on them and she was close to my face and i guess it startled her and she bit my nose, right on the bone part at the top it bled like crazy and was a huge wound. she was so scared after she did it she ran behind my laptop and hid frown she thought i was going to be mean to her the way her old humans used to be ....

I know I should leave him alone. I just feel like I am neglecting him. He loves to cuddle and be petted. But apparently not this week.

Omg, Val, that is absolutely hilarious! Seriously, it would make a great article in BirdTalk mag -- just so funny and well-written! (I just love this sentence: "A shaky truce was signed over a piece of walnut.") smile I don't mean it's funny that Quincy bites people, just that your take on it is so humorous.

Helwa, please don't tell your husband but I just about spewed Diet Coke all over my monitor at this:

For Pete's sake, you gals should write "The Quaker Chronicles: Mischievous Monks Make Me Mental!"

You know, I do believe I now know why they're called Quaker parrots: because they make many humans quake in their boots!

hahahahaha certainly arent named after quakers, the peaceful non violents folks haha

no actually they are called quaker because they "quake"

they shake when happy or content, specially when they are babies, but when they are adults too, kind of like a cat purring.

it almost looks like seizure lol

ROFLMAO!!! sooo well worded! you had me in tears!! sounds like a giant version of my daughter's parrotlett!!!
once i was in a pet shop and the store's african green decided he wanted to visit... the girl said "he bites" he was already 3/4 of the way off her and onto me so what do you do? besides, it was the first encounter with anything bigger than a keet. the lady was really surprised cause he won't usually go with anyone else even if she tried to put him there, let alone decide he's gonna wander to a strange shoulder!. her son had named him pickle cause he was the color of the "yucky things on mc d's burgers" pickle was amazing! he preened my hair and nibbled on my collar. i was IN HEAVEN!! until I had to go, but pickle had other ideas. i reached up to get him to step up when "back off!!" was shrieked into my ear, and the top of my finger nearly amputated! i had to stay till the owner managed to bribe him off (another 15 mins of throbbing finger for me and resorting to the leather glove for her!) when i got home with my injured finger, i was asked what happened, to which my reply was "i got bit by a pickle!!" (got some weird looks till the story was out!) my girl's parrotlett, reminded me so much of that afr green, i suggested the name "baby dill" who she now calls dillon and i call "little PICKLE"!! never saw a pickle (even a baby one, LOL!) swell up, rustle and GROWL!! it sounds just like a puppy!
i tried to "offer" to take pickle off her hands now that the baby was here.... NOT HAPPININ.... YET! mwaa ha ha haaaaa!!!!! LOL!
