The cage size for Quaker Parrots being an important issue

A type of parrot called a Quaker parrot or Monk parakeet is known for its agility and intelligence hence need much space in order to grow and survive. It is the case that in terms of the size of the cage, bigger always equals to better.

A bigger cage gives quaker parrots a chance to unfold their wings, make exercise, and do what they naturally do such as swimming and exploring. It is that, at the same time, it gives them sufficient space to clean themselves, which is an obligatory part of their grooming practices.

An appropriate-sized cage plays a key player in this game by preventing boredom as it motivates the mind and stimulates it. Quaker parrots are gregarious birds by nature, so they need a lot of space if they are to have enough room for toys, etc. that are necessary for their well-being. Almost all birds are intelligent birdies who can easily get bored and resort to self-harm (such as feather plucking) or the development of unwanted vocal tendencies out of boredom.

Minimum Cage Size for Quaker Parrots

One should select a cage with the larger size, though it does not have to be the biggest size available in the market, taking into account the minimum size requirement that should be provided when looking for a new cage for the quaker parrot. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the recommended housing for an only quaker parrot should be not less than 18 inches width, 18 inches deep, and 24 inches height.

On the other hand, mind that the dimensions discussed here below are the least though and are just a starting point. If that is possible in your case, bigger cage is always advantageous and therefore, is strongly suggested as one of the critical conditions for good living of your quaker parrot.

Ideal Cage Size for Quaker Parrots

In the case of a quaker parrot it is a cage size which allows the bird to fly fully with its wings extended and to move easily from one place to another. A cage that is at least 24 inches wide, 24 inches deep, and, 36 inches tall is the minimum viel size for a single quaker parrot which is a good starting point for such pets.

Since this is for a little quaker parrot, remember different animals may have other dimensions. When you live with more than one quaker parrots or if you plan to grow your house birds in the future, you must consider providing an even larger cage to make your parrots feel safe and secure.

Another contraption that have to be thought of is the bar spacing of the cage. As a bar spacing, 1/2 inch is good for quaker parrots and other small birds because small birds might get their heads stuck or escape from large spacing.

Cage Features that Complement the Recommended Size

Apart from the proper cage size, some additional things in a cage can promote a better living space for you quaker parrot. Here are some key features to consider:Here are some key features to consider:

  • Preening Space

Establish a specific place where your quaker parrot can iron its feather as it tries to smooth out the tangles and knots from its feather edges. This can be some sort of artificial platforms or birds can perch on any prepared roost with wired texture to keep their beaks and nails in good condition.

  • Cage Toys

Like with Quakers, human-like parrots are curious and smart birds. Show a range of cage toys such as puzzle toys, foraging toys and chew items that will be used when the birds are bored or want something different to do.

The decisions wont come along, the spacing between bars, the cage components, and better to seek for a help of a veterinarian skilled in the care of parrots.

I am a passionate bird watcher and ornithologist who wants to share knowledge about birds. I spend a lot of my free time watching birds in their natural environment, identifying different bird species, and taking pictures of them. I want to encourage others to have a better understanding of birds and how important they are to the ecosystem. My goal is to open a bird sanctuary one day where injured and orphan birds can be saved and cared for.
