    Somewhere between 2 and 20. :-D

    Seriously,once a Quaker weans out,they look full grown,so if
    the bird is not banded or chipped,there is no way of telling.
    Most Q's get sexually mature enough to lay eggs around 2
    years old,and I have heard of them laying up until they were
    20.
