Chester & Jack's Story...

Chester is a splayed leg Quaker Parrot who is laid back and gets around very well. Chester thinks he/she is no different than his buddy Jack! The two are bonded. Chester is the one to protect Jack and their cage. Once Chester is out of the cage he/she is a sweetheart. Chester will lay directly on your chest and rest his beak on your chest while you are petting and talking or sit there nicely looking around. Chester also enjoys sitting in the palm of your hand to hang out. Jack is a curious Quaker. Jack is always wanting to try new things and investigate on his own if within cage reach. Jack is usually the one to try to take away Chester’s toy or anything to get a squawk! Jack likes to ride on your shoulder and nuzzle in your hair. Jack and Chester both enjoy sitting on kids fingers and being petted and talked to. Neither birds talk but have their own language when you come into the room to say your hello or goodnight. Chester & Jack are healthy, lively birds that have been converted to a diet of pellets and fresh fruits and vegetables and are now looking for their forever home!

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.
