I worked at a petstore and there was this fiery little monster that was difficult to handle. He was was cute though. I found out it was a quaker and tried to tame it down by reading all about them. A customer bought it eventually and I was sad it was gone. I researched all over the place to find one for me and it was love at first sight..

Hi! My name is Pico

I am a Quaker from Austin, TX.

Peekees (which he made up himself...he'll whisper "peekees! peekees!") He wont say it, just whisper it and bob his head.

9 years old   M

Quaker

Sunflower seeds (not good!) green peppers, pancakes, rice and anything he sees me eat.

On the door of his opened cage, but his way? On my shoulder...or if I am eating my plate is his ideal playground.

Leave my cage alone and especially my food dish! He is also a one person bird. I love my mommy and I will tolerate the rest of ya's on MY terms.

She takes me traveling and takes me in the shower and acts like a nut. But I will try to out do her....

His favorite word is "What?" He says his name, "Hello", "quack quack", sneezes if you ask "what if a bird smells pepper?" and He makes a loud "GGGGGRRRR!!!" squawk whenever he loses his footing or gets embarrassed. He is good at throwing a temper tantrum when upset. He also stands on his head (bird yoga!).

Do it my way...period. ..worship me or Ill self destruct. Give me a piece of your snack or I will take it. This entire planet revolves around ME ME ME!!!.

  HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM LONG-LOST LITTLE LUCY
Hi Pico and Zowie, I don't know exactly how you and I got separated, but I'm so sorry about that. It was probably between all of Mommy's traveling in her job (which she doesn't have anymore) and my Daddy having cancer the past year and a half. Things got pretty hectic what with all the visits for radiation everyday and then the chemo every week. But, hey, Praise the Lord! Daddy is all better now. He's still not back to work because he developed neuropathy in his hands and feet from the chemo. So his feet hurt a lot when he stands on them for any length of time. They even hurt when he doesn't stand on them.

We have a sort-of new bird in our house. After little Daisy's terrible accident, Mommy needed to find another feathered baby who needed a home. He's a re-homed little guy that Mommy adopted last April. His name is Finnegan and he's an ekkie. Actually his name WAS Simon, but Mommy thought he needed a new name for a new life and she thought he looked a little Irish and more like a Finnegan than a Simon. He's about 2 1/2 yrs. old and has been a wonderful addition to our family. He's so friendly to everyone who comes in the door, but Mommy is still his favorite. He has never bitten anyone and is just very affectionate. However, he doesn't like his back touched, so Mommy can't pet him. She can stroke his tummy a little and can even touch his wings a bit, but not his head or back. Well, I want to wish you and your family the very best new year ever, filled with good health, happines and as many blessings as our Good Lord can shower on you. Our family sends our love to all of you. Vote 4 U! Big Hugs from Little Lucy and Finnegan

Come visit me, Finnegan - Thanks for your votes!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - Thank you for my hatchday wishes!.

Good morning Patrick here, Our house is still a mess. I keep telling the construction workers, "Hello Baby" and wolf whistling at them. Mommy laughed and told Dad that is reversed. Usually the construction workers are whistling at the girls that walk by. Well here is a vote for you and the flock on our way out...xoxoxoxo

  Hello from the Oklahoma Gang
Hi Pico, Patrick here, Sounds like you are having a great time. I am so glad you stopped by to visit. We are all doing just fine today. We had some workers replacing the kitchen floor. It was so noisy. Mommy had a time keeping us calm with all the sawing, drilling and hammering. Fortune and I kept trying to get louder than the workers. hehe. Here is a vote and we will step on the vote button for the rest of the flock too. Love,.....

  hi pico
yeah we use to have quaker parrot and he was awesome and i really really miss him!!!! my dog,Rocky the one you saw on Preety Boy's page had got Preety Boy when he had came out oof his cage and we didn't know and no body was around them.i was so mad when i saw Rocky chewing on Preety Boy!!!!! =# and my mom was even more madier then me when she found out because that was her bird.but my mom said she wanted anther parrot,it doesn't have to be a Quaker Parrot,but she does want a talking bird. it won't replace Preety Boy but it will make her feel a litte bit better.and i read that you had searched online for a quaker parrot and then you found Pico and i was just wondering if you could tell me like on which website you found him on,i mean i'v been looking online but i haven't seen any birds,well i have seen birds but they are like a billion dollors and we can't afford that right now,we need a reasonable price for a parrot so if you see any please tell me!!!! thank you!!! P.S.you got my vote and your bird looks just like how my Preety Boy looked and my birdie used to give kisses too. i miss him

Come visit me, ***~PREETY BOY~***.

  MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM LUCY, DAISY AND THEIR MOMMY
Hi there Peekees and Pretty Zowie, we're very sorry we haven't been around much lately. Our Mommy has been very busy as we're sure your Mommy has been, too. But we wanted to fly by and wish all of our very dear friends, both feathered and human, the very best and most blessed of Christmases. Mommy is going away the day after Christmas until New Year's Eve, so we'd better wish you all a very happy, healthy and wonderful New Year, too. We are very thankful to have made so many dear friends on the BC this year. We love each and every one of you and we're very grateful for you all. Our Mommy also wanted to thank your Mommy for all the good advice she gave about quakers. She was right about our quaker, too. Mommy just loves that little Lucy, and she's a real Mama's girl. She's just nuts about Mommy. But Mommy has been following your advice and has Lucy step up on her finger INSIDE her cage. So far, so good. Lucy hasn't been territorial at all yet, and Mommy can do absolutely anything with her. She trusts Mommy completely. God bless you! Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night! Christmas Hugs and Kisses! From Little Lucy, Daisy and their Mommy, Susan

Come visit me, Finnegan - Thanks for your votes!, Daisy - R.I.P. - BOTW 9/17-9/23/07 & Miss Lucy Blue - Thank you for my hatchday wishes!.

  Hello Pico!
Wow! It's like looking in a mirror. How are you going to spend the holidays? I usually get a cool new toy and shred some wrapping paper. Sometimes I even sing Christmas Carols, but they say I'm a little tone deaf. What do humans know? Have a great Holiday! - Talon

  Hello Picp
Flying in to chew your vote off your page. Well you can have some of the Snow and Ice that we have been getting here. It has been in the 30's & 40's so some of it is melting. Mommy says we need snow for a White Christmas but non after that. You are lucky to be were it is warm most of the year. Here for the stores or schools to shut down it has to be a blizzard or Ice storm. Everyone panics here too when the Weatherperson says snow storm it is like you said there is no tomorrow and alot of times the storm misses us. We just stock up through out the year. Well better hop off now almost time for mommy to go Pick up my skin brother form school Luv Pita

  Well, I hope you are able to stop his plucking! I would still test any cage and many of the toys he likes for lead at least...you can get a test at a hardware store. That will not show zinc, but just in case it does have lead in it. Heavy metals can come from anyware, and there have been several scandals with cages containing lead. Another simple idea to stop lucking (or hormones, which is what I use it for) is to stuff teh cage with shreddable and chewable toys. Absolutely stuff. Do not black food dishes, but make it more difficult to get to them. Make it so he can not get anywhere without chewing to get there. I mean stuff it! Then he will have something else to but his energy against, and will hopefully have to leave his feathers alone. I would keep googling anything you can about plucking or anything else you notice about him, since plucking usually is a layer off things, often involing something being wrong with the health, so you want to stop the cause as well as the effect. Here is a really good website -http://www.newyorkbirds.net/featherdestructivebeh- avior.html it is certainly a long and complete on, so you might want to read it in segments. I hope the sweater work1 I tried it on Lola, but since her plucking was so far up, as well as lower, it did not really cover it.
