December 27, 2006 at 2:45pm I got Gaia at Birds Unlimited. I had a Quaker before named Sonny. I had to give him away. He didn’t let anyone hurt me. I miss him. I just hope he survived the hurricane. Anyway, 6 years later I wanted another bird. Now I have Gaia. She was the last Quaker. She was all alone in the cage. The pet store owner told me Gaia wasn’t tamed but I bought her anyway. I just hope she'll be ok. (I thought to myself. She needs my love and I hope that over time she'll get use to me.).

Hi! My name is Gaia

I am a Quaker from Kenner, LA.

Pretty bired, Baby, Cutesy

8 years old   F

Quaker

Don't know yet.

At this moment at the bottom of the cage. But I've moved up to my perch.

I don’t like anyone touching me or coming near my cage. I'm an angry bird. I came home this way.

Katsy reads to me in the afternoon and before my bed time.

.

Touch me and I'll bite you..

  Hi!
Hi Gaia, i'm a amazon that just moved to new orleans in december from upstate ny. My mommy rescued me in september before her and my daddy decided to move there. I like it much better cause it's so much warmer! i had to stay at birds unlimited though over christmas. The other birds there taught me how to whisper. before that i just screamed! my mommy said she saw a quaker building a nest in a palm tree down the street. she really wants one but daddy said between me and the two dogs it's too much.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Hello Gaia, nice to meet you. When I first went home with my mama, I was so scared I sat underneath the lowest perch in my cage, and hissed whenever someone came near. The next day, my mama took me into a small room and removed me gently from my cage with a towel. Then she lay down on the floor next to me, didn't look at me, and very slowly got closer and closer. I had just had my wings clipped for the first time, and after some futile attempts to fly, gave up. She tried to get me to step up on a stick by putting it very gently against my stomach. When I was back in my cage she would sit next to me and read or just be quiet. After a couple of days I was put on my playgym and learned to step up on a stick. After that she used her hand and moved millimeter by millimeter closer. If I moved she would stop until I calmed down again. After one week of this I stepped on her hand. Two weeks later I got upset if she left the room I was in. I had never seen a toy or a regular seed dish in my life. I was 8 months old at the time. I hope some of this will help you. Good Luck!

  Hi there!
Thank you for visiting us! With a lot of time and patience, we know you will be very happy in your new home! It took a lot of time for some of our feathered siblings to adjust to us and our human parents, but now we are all the best of friends! Hopefully, you and your human flock will be too!

Come visit me, Snuggles and her gang & Feather Plucker's Anonymous.
