Since the start of this post I have met 2 pairs of Quakers, both lots pets. They are all adorable birds - male & female both. The first pair I met when I picked up Ringo from Pollyparrot, she said don't worry he won't bite. What was the first thing he did? Yep! bite! The second pair 'laughed' when I said ouch when they bit! They didn't bite to hurt just to be friendly. If I could afford a Quaker I most definately want to get one, or two!
