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

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

All  By Myself...

Do Blondes Really Have More Fun?

Looking for a new soul mate...
