The average lifespan of a Quaker parrot is reported as 15 to 20 years, but they can live to be between 25 and 30 years. The lifespan of a Quaker parrot depends on its environment and how well it is cared for.

Quaker parrots that live in the wild often have shorter lifespans, while those raised in captivity can live longer with proper veterinary care, attention and cage cleaning. Another way to help prolong the life of a pet Quaker parrot is by preventing household accidents. This can be done by restricting where the parrot is allowed to fly and keeping its wings clipped.
