Grumpy Old Man

Pepper the Yellow Nape Amazon on the right lost his home when their parents lost theirs.  Pepper is sweet and talkative when he is away from his cage, but can be grumpy in that amazon way.

Adoption Fee: $300


Fred is a child of divorce. Mom didn't want to take him and dad was unable to continue caring for him so he came here hoping to find a new place to call home. Though he was a handfed baby back in 1993, we think he has not been handled for a while and will need some patience. His little sister, Jocomena the Timneh, is listed a little further down the page.

Adoption fee: $400

Travelling Men

Talk about adventure! Ross and Jack were travelling with their family when their vehicle broke down somewhere in Kansas. The family was unable to keep them and so, with help from many kind people, they were transported here. We don't have a lot of history, but we know that Jack was born in 2003. They are step up kind of guys and we would like for them to be able to stay together.  Pictured below is Jack.

Adoption fee: $50 per bird

Shy but Sweet

Sheena is actually a male, so don't hold his name against him.  He is at least 31 years old and has a small vocabulary.  He is shy, but does love attention and will step on a perch.  We suspect he has not be handled in a while, but hope he will respond well if someone wants to work with him.  He has a couple medical issues, so will need some specialized attention.  He came to us due to illness in the family. 

Adoption Fee: $300

Coming Out (of the dark)!

Statler and Waldorf are Jenday Conures.  We know Statler was born in 1998 and Waldorf may be about the same age. They were sweet handfed babies at one point, but ended up in a dark basement, on a seed diet, not being handled for some time. They both have some feather issues due to this. We hope they can stay together.

Adoption fee for these birds is $120

Cinnamon sweet

Chait (pronounced "kite") is a Cinnamon Green Cheek conure born in 2008. We don't know if Chait is male or female. This is a sweet bird that needs a new home due to illness in the family. We could not get a good picture of Chait as he is very active.  So his twin, Bess, allowed us to use her picture again.

Adoption fee for this bird is $100
