Here is a question that comes up a lot from new Quaker owners: "What's the best cage size for my Quaker Parrot?" This new article not only answers this question in detail but also provides additional tips to help you choose the best cage for your new bird.

When I first became involved with Quaker Parrots, the wisdom of the day was to purchase a cage that is no smaller than 18×18×18. I believe the thinking was that this size would be sufficient to allow a Quaker to stretch and flap its wings. Of course, that would depend on how many toys and other items are in the cage, but that was the general idea. After living with these birds for a number of years, I agree that this size provides a sufficient home for a Quaker and personally would never consider a cage that was smaller than this.
