Blue Quaker Parrots are a variety of the Quaker Parrot that has become available through the selective breeding of captive birds. Except for their color, they are very similar to the original Quaker Parrots. They are fun-loving birds that enjoy socialization and make great avian companions.
Blue Quaker Parrots are a color variation of the Quaker Parrot, whose scientific name is Myiopsitta monachus. There are four subspecies within their general range. They are small, companion parrots that are also commonly referred to as Blue Monk Parakeets or Blue Monk Parrots. The Blue Quaker is not classified as a separate species.
Blue Quakers are about 11 inches (28 cm) in length. The Blues weigh about 3.5 ounces (100 grams), which is slightly less than the original green variety. They have blue backs and wings, a grey breast, black eyes with a white eye-ring, and an orange-yellow beak.
