Hi everyone, I just adopted my first Quaker! I actually found her on craigslist, the person rehoming her had rescued her from a bad home and then wanted a new home for her as she already had many birds. Her name was Baby, I decided to add on Rio, but she already says many word such as Pretty Baby so I didn't want to fully change her name. She is estimated to be 2 years old, not totally certain she is a "she" but that is what her previous owner thought. She is beautiful and healthy as her rescuer got her switched over to a pelleted diet and fruits and veggies! I already love her and just got her yesterday. She is a cuddler and very smart. A bit cage aggressive, but not bad.
It's also very cute that if you knock she says "come in", though she is still adjusting to being in a new home so she has been quiet since I brought her home. She's also going to have to adjust to my dog, who isn't certain what to think of her. I look forward to her growing up with my kids (who are 6 and 2) And she will be my fid even after my human kids grow up and move out I can't wait to see how our relationship grows over the next 20-30 years
Here is a pic!
