Quarker parrot

I have just brought a 4 month old quaker parrot im a newbie at this when would be a good time to tame him and the best way


Hi Louise,

If this bird was not hand fed, it will be very difficult for a novice to tame him. Even an experienced bird owner will find it challenging to tame a bird that was not hand fed. Before you work with him, you need to give him a few weeks to get used to his new home and to you. And when you do start to work with him, his wings need to be trimmed by a professional or all he will do is fly away from you. I am going to provide a link to our page with articles on taming and training and general care.

Good luck with you new bird,
