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!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chester & Jack, a Tampa Parakeet - Quaker was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Parakeet - Quaker for sale in Tampa, or seeking a Parakeet - Quaker from a breeder in Tampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tampa already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Tampa breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Parakeet - Quaker breeders who help with Parakeet - Quaker rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
