I just picked up 2 quakers from someone desperate to get rid of them. They are supposedly a breeding pair, supposedly about 1.5 years old and supposedly hatched some babies this past spring.... I don't know much at all about parrots, but that doesn't sound right to me. Can they have babies that young? I also really need some advice on how to get them hand tame. The male is very protective of the female, and neither one has been handled much, if at all from what I can tell. They were happy to take treats from my hand thru the bars, so I don't think they are fearful, just not very socialized maybe? Obviously they need to settle into their new environment and get used to me first, but then how should I proceed from there? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. One thing I need to work on is getting them a bigger cage, the one they came in is on the small side for one bird, but way too small for them both. Should I separate them at some point or will that make them crazy? They do seem to be bonded to each other.
