Best Way to Find and Purchase a Quaker Parrot Without Getting Ripped Off

quaker bird

If you have seen a quaker parrot for sale, you are probably wondering whether it is a good idea to buy it. These birds are intelligent. Some of them are quite friendly and social. However, they have also been known to manifest moody and ill-tempered mannerisms. Identifying and selecting a decent quaker parrot for sale won’t be easy, especially for beginners that have never owned a bird before.

If you don’t want unscrupulous elements to rip you off, you should take the following into account:

1). Seller

When it comes to buying a quaker parrot, you should pay close attention to the seller. Listen to what they have to say. Do they look like they understand parrots? Try to verify all the information they provide. If it is accurate, it will guide you towards the best quaker parrot for your needs. If it is inaccurate, you can use that as an excuse to avoid the seller in question.

Store owners that provide inaccurate information about their birds are either incompetent or liars. You don’t want anything to do with either.

2). Origins

Don’t forget to investigate the origins of the quaker parrot. Hand-raised birds are attractive because they have some experience with human training and affection. They are expensive. However, they are also easier to handle and train.

Second-hand birds have their advantages as well. They are accustomed to human interactions. However, because they have settled into certain patterns and behaviors, teaching them new habits will present a much bigger challenge.

3). Money

This is where so many people struggle. They don’t know whether to prioritize cheap or expensive quaker parrots. In truth, where quaker parrots are concerned, money doesn’t matter. The behavior should be your primary focus.

There is no point in buying a cheap but poorly behaved parrot because you might eventually spend thousands of dollars to remedy its bad habits. This can also happen with expensive birds, which is why the cost of a parrot shouldn’t sway your decision.

Focus your efforts on identifying the healthiest, happiest, and most social parrot available. You should only take the financial elements into consideration after locating a suitable quaker parrot.

4). General Stores

Of all the sources of parrots, general pet stores are the most popular. Before you invest in a bird from a pet store, pay close attention to the environment. If the store and its cages are dirty and unkempt, the parrots on sale are not worth buying. Look for a clean, organized establishment.

5). Specialty Stores

Specialty stores are better than general pet stores because many of them are operated by devoted lovers of birds. You can trust them to stock the healthiest quaker parrots on the market. Of course, this isn’t always the case. You are encouraged to investigate each store’s reputation before you make a purchase. The best stores have a lot of satisfied customers in their past.

6). Breeders

Breeders are hit or miss. The best breeders love parrots and they breed them to satisfy their passion and they put their focus on the quaker parrot for sale. You can trust them to provide you with satisfactory birds. But a lot of breeders lack integrity. Their objective is to make as much money as possible, even if it means selling substandard birds. You have to visit a breeder’s facilities before you make a purchase from them to ensure that their practices meet the relevant standards
