Facts about Baby and Peanut

  • Breed: Parakeet - Quaker
  • Color: Green
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Baby and Peanut
Hello there! Our names are Baby and Peanut, and we are a bonded pair of Quaker Parrots! We must be adopted together. We are both pretty quiet, as parrots go. I’m Baby and I have lots of things that I say, while my friend Peanut doesn’t talk. ‘Hi Baby’, ‘Hello Baby’, ‘Want some food?’, ‘Quaker’, ‘Thank you’, ‘Come on’, and ‘Come here’ are just a few of the things I can say. My foster mom says she is sure I can say a lot more than that! We are both very active, and inquisitive, and we like to stick together unless it is time to eat – then it is every bird for himself!
We are both very protective of each other and our home, so we do better with people outside our cage. I don’t like to step up at all, but Peanut will, if I’m not around. I like to get my head scratched but only if Peanut is not around. We are a bit nippy right now, but our foster Mom is working with us on our trust issues and that eventually, we won’t mind hands and will step up easily. Right now, we prefer a house without children or other pets, but my foster mom says this may change, too. I think she has a lot of plans for us!
We love our fresh vegetables (mom calls it chop), and we love seeds for treats and training (remember that seeds are for this purpose only, and no sunflower seeds!). We are trying Zupreem Fruit blend and we like the yellow banana ones a lot! We love apples, and grapes, and we are trying new foods every week.
We also love to get misted to keep our feathers clean. We will be sure to put on our best behavior when you come to meet us, which we hope will be very soon. In the meantime, maybe you can send us some gifts from our wish list at: All gifts are very appreciated, thank you!!

About Florida Parrot Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
