About Us
Nub and Bogey, the Pets of the Day
Name: Nub, Bogey
Age: Twelve, Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Quaker Parrots
Home: Fort Worth, Texas, USA
   This is Nub (Green Quaker Parrot) and Bogey (Blue Quaker Parrot). Nub was my first bird and responsible for my case of MBS (multiple bird syndrome) and the resulting family of nine birds that reside with us in Fort Worth, TX. He is very polite, says "thank you" when given a treat, and "bless you" if you sneeze or cough. Every morning his first words are "I love you". Quakers are extremely smart and have a huge vocabulary.

    Bogey (blue Quaker) was bought as a gift for me from my husband. Too bad Bogey didn't realize that. He bonded to him, not to me. He adores my husband...constantly asks where he is when he's not home. He preens my husband's eyelashes, eyebrows, and gives him kisses. He also thinks he is as big as a macaw, which gets him into trouble.
