Facts about Fidget

  • Breed: Parakeet - Quaker
  • Color: Green
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
Fidget is a male Quaker Parrot "Monk Parakeet" who was born in approximately 2006. We are unsure of what Fidget’s life was like prior to entering our program, but we can assume he was not handled very often or didn’t have the best experience with humans. Fidget’s foster mom is working very hard to help Fidget trust humans again. Fidget will perch on her shoulder and let her stroke his chest on occasion. Fidget will take seeds, kale, and cucumber (his favorite veggies) from your hands. Fidget is VERY vocal and can imitate a few noises such as squeaks, kissy noises, microwave beeping and low pitched laughter; he can also say "good birdie" and “food.” He will also dance to his favorite music. Fidget will do best in a home with very patient humans and respectful children over 10.

Please be aware that we are not a "first come, first served" rescue. We will choose the best fitting home for Fidget. We will provide proof of veterinarian examination, any/all other vet records under our care including DNA testing identifying gender, and an information/care guide.

Average Lifespan: 15 to 20 years.
Grooming: Nail and wing trimming once a month depending on growth. Bird baths for cages can be purchased and offered weekly and daily if molting. Shower perches are also an option.
Activity Time: Diurnal meaning most active during the day. Stimulating toys will be needed in the cage and play area at all times though. Time out of the cage and human interaction is also needed to prevent birds from becoming destructive.
Diet: Small parrot or Conure pellet with high Vitamin A. NOT a parakeet diet since a Quaker parrot is actually considered a small parrot. Seeds, vegetables, and fruits should be offered weekly.
Habitat: Minimum of a 32" x 23" with play area on top. Cage must be large enough for him to comfortably stretch his wings and fly from perch to perch. The bigger the cage the better.
Adoption Fee: $150

About Little Lives Matter Small Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Lives Matter Small Animal Rescue is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization located in Tri-Cities, Washington. Our primary focus is on small animals such as rodents, reptiles, birds, etc.

We want to help our community as much as we can by rescuing small animals, reducing overpopulation, and educating the community on small animal care.

CONTACT US: If you are interested in adopting, surrendering, or fostering please email littlelivesrescue@yahoo.com. If you just adopted or purchased a small animal from another facility and you would like a care guide, please email us and specify what animal type you would like a care guide for.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We attend PetSmart adoption events at the PetSmart on Canal in Kennewick, Washington. We do not do on-site adoptions, but this is an opportunity to see our adoptable pets in order for you to decide if you would like to apply.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Request an adoption application by emailing littlelivesrescue@yahoo.com (multiple page form requiring references, including a vet reference).
2. Home check. We are not a "first-come, first-served" rescue. We choose the best fitting home for that particular animal.
3. If the animal can safely be spayed/neutered, that will be done prior to adoption. Many small animals cannot be safely altered.
4. A signed adoption contract and adoption fee will be required at the time of adoption. Adoption fees vary depending on animal type.
5. A care guide, supply list, and veterinary contact information will be provided to the adopter at or before the time of adoption.
