  • Description

    Please note that the product information displayed is provided by manufacturers, suppliers and other third parties and is not independently verified by Petco.

    Quaker (or Monk) Parakeets are beautiful and intelligent birds. They come in a variety of colors and are larger than the typical Parakeet. The term Parakeet is actually a descriptive term for the body type of these parrots.

    • - Quakers thrive on human interaction and are quick to mimic sounds and words
    • - Need activities, such as swinging and climbing, to keep them busy
    • - Bond to their pet parents and require several hours of attention a day
    • - Naturally take naps during the day, so a quiet place with a dim light is ideal
    • - Provide foraging toys, which provide important mental stimulation
    • - Birds should be socialized daily by the pet parent
    • - Can be kept alone to bond with pet parent or in pairs to bond with each other. Different types of birds should not be housed together
