Bird lovers fight to legalize Quaker parrots in New Hampshire
Quaker parrots are illegal to own in several states in the U.S.

The New Hampshire State Senate voted on May 11, 2011, to legalize the sell and ownership of quaker parrots in the state of New Hampshire. The bill, HB651, as of press time, is currently waiting on New Hampshire Governor John Lynch’s signature.

In February 2011, it became known that quaker parrots were considered illegal to own and sell in New Hampshire. (Read more here.) With the support of Birds of A Feather Avicultural Society, the American Federation of Aviculture, New Hampshire General Court representatives Jeanine Notter and more, legislation was proposed to legalize quaker parrots and on March 30, 2011, the  New Hampshire House voted to make quaker parrots legal. The Birds of A Feather Avicultural Society is providing updates on the bill’s progress at their website. Stay tuned to BirdChannel.com for more updates.
