how do i find out the sex of a pair of Quaker parrots?


Category: Training Quaker Parrots

Four days ago I adopted/inherited three quaker parrots. I think they are less than a year old. Their previous owner barely interacted with them therefore they are very nervous around people. I would like to know how to tell if they are male or female with out having to take them to the pet shop or getting a blood test. Also i want get some ideas/input on how to go about training them and integrating them to their new family. I have taken care of many animals, but am not familiar with birds in general, such as behavior, training, diet, growth and development rate. I have an idea of their general lifespan but thats about it.

Please Help! Any input will be greatly appreciated by both myself and my new family members.

    You can DNA sex them yourself thru avian biotech.com with a blood feather or sample of blood from a clipped claw. Or ask your vet to do it.

    The only way to tell is through DNA testing…ask your vet. Quakers are great birds…there is alot of info online – i suggest you read as much as possible so that you can enjoy a great relationship with them.
    Make sure you go easy on seeds (they are prone to fatty liver disease) – their diet should consist of pelleted parrot feed and fresh fruits and veggies.
