Hi Birbsquad! When it comes to Quaker Parrots, I take a different approach to taming, bonding, and earning their trust. Quaker Parrots in general are a territorial species so we must take a different route in taming compared to how I tame a green cheek parakeet.
Please keep in mind that all Quakers are different. So it is important to pay attention to your parrot’s body language and get a feel for what he is wanting. Remember, with a Quaker Parrot we want to focus on creating the bond and not worrying about the disciplining for now. That video will come next. Lets just have fun and find ways to distract and redirect your parrot’s behavior into something positive. This takes a lot of work and patience but trust me… YOU CAN DO THIS!! :)
Strategy. We are going to focus on redirecting your parrot’s behavior and distracting him from getting into Quaker Mode

Different Cages and Toys. Having a cage specifically for sleeping, as well as one for foraging and playing is a great option to keep your bird from becoming territorial. Constantly switching toys and scenery up for your parrot will do wonders.
No Hands No Hesitation. During the bonding phase, we want to keep handling to a minimum. You want him to be able to trust you so lets take things slow. When you approach your bird whether its to get him off a perch or whatever, know what to do. Don’t hesitate in front of him and give him a chance to react and decide whats going to happen.
Step Up. Its important that you teach your parrot to step up but don’t train him on the cage or any area that he deems as ‘his’. You can do this by having a training perch and plenty of treats in hand. This is a great bonding experience with you two.
Attacking The Family. Have your family member train your parrot without you being there. You want all distractions and all things/people he is possessive over out of the way for now. If you want a more thorough video on this, please let me know!
Screaming. Reward chattering not the screaming. Chattering is normal for your Quaker so we should reward those behaviors.
