Well prior to getting Paulie I lost a quaker parrot who I owned for many years. It was just a month after my wedding and my husband wanted to give me a late wedding present so he decided to take me to a place to buy a new birdy companion. I walked in looking for a Quaker parrot and they didint have any. I was very dissapointed almost in tears. So i decided on another type of bird. As i was playing with the cockatiels, I saw out the corner of my eye a little green bird about to be attacked by a group of amazons.

As if by instinct, I grabbed the green bird and held him against my chest. When I looked down it was a young quaker parrot. I looked down at him and he looked up at me as if to say :thank you!it was love at first sight. My hubby came to me and asked if I found my bird. I told him 'I want him'. The bird lady who worked there took down my information and placed 'baby' on the cage. 'baby' stared at me as I gently petted him. As I turned away for a moment to ask my hubby a question, another guy who worked there grabbed 'baby' and showed him to a family. The lady who took my information said to him 'He has a new mommy, he's not for sale' and she placed him in my hands again.

We just stared at each other and I cuddled him and the first thing i said to Paulie was " I guess we're stuck together" and I gave him a kiss on his head. Baby who is now known as Paulie is now three years old. Everytime I see Paulie I always think back to that moment when I first laid eyes on him. I loved him then and I love him even more now.

Hi! My name is Paulie

I am a Quaker from New York, NY.

Paulie's Nicknames are: Penguin (because he doesnt fly, but he waddles when he walks), Pollito (which is chicken in spanish)handsom- e, boobie and lover boy.

11 years old   M


Paulie's favorite treats are: Apple pieces, Rice and Millet.. Paulie loves his Millet so much that i call it Birdy nip because he will do anything to get it.

Paulie loves to hang out on the corner of my pillow and either perched on my husband's or my shoulder. But his most favorite hang out spot is cuddled up in my kangaroo pocket of my overalls (and he loves to pop his head out and yell Peek-oo)and in my arms next to my heart.

Lets see Paulie's pet peeves are: he loves to say cute things at the most inappropriate times, he likes to steal his 'little brother' Kiwi's (who is my baby Cockatiel)Mille- t even though he has one of his own. He also likes to dive me nuts with that bell toy i (mistakenly) bought him.

What do I love about my mommy: I love the way my mommy wakes me up with morning kissies and hw she always cuddles me, while we watch tv or shes on that computer thing. I also love going out with my mommy when it's warm outside. I love when she takes me to see my grandma who spoils me with kisees and huggies too. But my favorite thing I love about my mommy is when we have 'fun time' together which is we sing and dance together. I love being with my mommy and i know she loves being with me too.

Paulie has his quirks: especially when he's trying to get out of something. He will lean his head to the side and say: Good boy or I love you. which makes me melt automatically. He also knows when we're eating something he likes because he will take a journey to get to the plate we're eating from and then grab some and run off laughing..

A Quaker In Your Hand Is Worth Constant Love In Your Heart!!.

  Hello Paulie
My name is Audie. I'm a Quaker Parrot from East Williamsburg, in Brooklyn, not too far from the J train on Flushing Avenue. What part of New York are you from? I just finished reading your profile. In the how we met part of your profile, your mommy says that she loved you then and loves you even more now. Does she love you more than she loves your daddy? Hehehe. I see that you have in addition to you, another Quaker Parrot and a Cockatiel do you get along with them?. You know, Paulie, for our humans to want a Quaker Parrot over other parrots, just shows that we Quakers can be just as loving and fun as the bigger and more colorful parrots. And we learn to talk, there is no shutting up, unless our beaks are taped(it's not a good idea) or we are put in our cages with the covers down(better choice). I like that you make noise with the bell toy that your mommy got for you. I have a number of toys with bells and boy I can make a racket that when my mommy tries to take a nap, I make it hard for her to do with the noise I make. But hey, it goes with our nature. You take of yourself and I'll squawk with you soon. I hope to be friends with you. Leaving a vote for you. Audie.

  Hi Paulie:
What a touching story. You have wonderful parents. I am a Hans Macaw and lost a sister who was a Quaker named Susie. My owners took her to a vet and they misdiagnosed her ailment and it cost her her life. My owners where devastated and never went back to that vet.
Anyhow I am voting for you in honor of Susie and of course because I think you are attractive. Hope you stop and visit me and give me your vote.

Pecks galore,

Sweet Pea

Come visit me, Sweet Pea.

  Hi from Fortune, St. Patrick and Lonnie
Patrick here, I'm being good. The Lovies, Slate and Mica, won't let me sit on top of their cage, they nip at my toes. Then I moved to the top of the aquarium now that silly Mica, is trying to move in on my territory there. Daddy put him back in the cage. We were having to speak. At least I didn't try to nip him. hehe LOCK DOWN for MICA. hehe....My BC friend, Talker, the Cockateil's, baby is so cute. We love baby teils. We have six teil eggs in the nest box with Mrs. Skeeter and her husband Wishbone. Wishbone is a good daddy too. He seems to love caring for the babies more than Skeeter does. They are so funny. They should start hatching soon. Our Zebra baby needs a name that is not gender specific. Any Ideas? It is all white. They mature faster than teils do. It's new pic is on my (Patrick's) page. He took off flying when Mommy tried to take his pic this morning. heehee Well V4Y, Cheech to ya later,,,,xoxoxoxox Patrick, Lonnie and Fortune

Come visit me, St. Patrick D'bird loves Ruby Sue, Lonnie, Slate and Mica, Fortune & Cotton Ball "I'm Tiki's Girl".

  Hi Paulie
I am a blue and gold macaw, my name is Ollie. I like you alot, you are just like my little sister Tweety. She is a quaker too, but she is only 4 weeks old. She is going through a nippy stage right now and we hope she out grows it. I think she is just scared, cause after we eat they let us play on the floor together and she always tries to get under me or stays right up against me. She is so sweet, I can't wait til she is big like you. I'm giving you a vote cause Quakers are awesome!!!

Come visit me, Tweety, Guidry the Great!, Saphira, Ollie & Gabby.
