Is a quaker right for our household?
Posted 15 January 2011 - 12:23 AM
I am really needing some good advice from experienced quaker owners. I am trying to decide if a quaker would be a good fit for our house hold. My husband works midnights so he sleeps during the day. He doesnt want a bird that has a tendency to chirp all the time. For instance a parakeet or cockatiel or lovebird would never be a good fit for our house because of their constant noise.
We own a Blue Front Amazon and he has no problems sleeping during the day with Phoebe in the house. Of course I go to great lengths to make sure she has a mentally stimulating environment like a constant ever changing supply of toys, a variety of fresh foods and and lots of out of cage time. She never screams and the only time she makes any noise is when I take her into the shower with me or I am playing games with her like peek a boo or fetch, when we sing together, or when I vacuum. (Also, since my husband sleeps during the day the environment of our house is very quiet, which I'm convinced encourages her to be quiet as well.
After doing some research I think a quaker would be a fun little companion. Can you guys tell me are they more apt to be constantly making noise like love birds and budgies or is the noise very intermittent like my amazon?

I am home on the weekends and that's what I've noticed. During the week I am working all day, so I don't really know what they do. I have noticed that the house is quiet when I get home until they hear my keys in the door.
