QPS strives to provide factual, detailed information on Quakers as companion parrots through education, encourages legalization of Quakers in states where they are currently banned, and strives to prevent further restriction of ownership, promotes protection and preservation of Quaker natural habitats, and supports and encourages veterinary and avicultural research of all avian species.











Information presented on the QPS web pages is gathered from avian articles, books, reference materials, and the result of extensive discussion with Quaker owners, breeders, researchers, behaviorists, and avian veterinarians. It is not intended to replace the valuable information which your personal avian veterinarian shares with you.
