Our birds are not available for breeding, and we do not ship birds.
You must pass a screening interview (by appointment only) and visit twice to adopt a bird. We reserve the right to turn away anyone if we think you aren't the right person for the bird. Adoption fees do not include the cage. Some cages available for sale.
If we don't have the bird you are looking for, be sure to check with Beak N Wings bird club at www.BeakNWings.org to see what birds they have available.
BIG BEAUTIFUL MACAWS:
"Her name is Lola, she was a show bird...." Lola the 18 year old Blue and Gold was a performing bird at the Rainforest Cafe years ago, but needs a new home now that her owner has moved and can't keep her. She is shy about meeting new people, but once she gets used to you she will talk, give kisses, allow you to pet her, and maybe even do a trick or two. Her feather plucking is caused by a combination of issues, some of which we are attempting to resolve, some will require time and patience, but we can't guarantee her feathers will grow back.
Adoption fee for Lola is $400
Green Wing Macaw Jules was born around 1972, and has been plucking for about six years. We think he is a boy, and he sometimes has a bossy male attitude. He likes to dance, answer the phone, talk, and sometimes get head scratches. We are treating him for an infection and think he has a hormone imbalance causing some of his plucking problem.
Adoption fee $300
GoDiva came to us almost completely naked, so her name was Godiva. Because of her attitude, we tended to call her Diva, so we just changed her name to GoDiva. After months of treatment, we think we have cured her of the infections that caused her to mutilate her feet until she lost a toe, and her feathers are finally starting to grow in. We will only adopt her out to someone who lives nearby in case her self-mutilation flares up again and she requires more treatment (at our expense). She was handfed as a baby, but was set up for breeding and wasn't handled for years, so she is pretty wild.
Adoption fee for GoDiva is $250
All of our smaller parrots like Conures and Quakers have been adopted, but check back for more that may come in at any time!
GET MORE LOVE WITH A DOVE!
Oh my! We had a huge rescue of 30 doves! We don't know their ages, and are working on figuring out which ones are boys and girls, but we know they are all gorgeous! If you want a bird (or two) that will coo and laugh, never bite, and will allow anyone in the family to handle it, a dove may be for you. We will require anyone adopting our doves to show us the cage (or a photo of the cage) to ensure that they will have enough space. All regular adoption procedures apply, meaning you have to call for an appointment, fill out an adoption application, and be approved to adopt.
Adoption fee ONLY $5 EACH
Three little Zebra Finch girls and one boy were the products of "The Birds and the Bees in the City" if you know what I mean. When you buy a male and a female finch from the pet store and give them a nest, there will be babies! If you want birds that will make sweet little noises and don't need a lot of your time and attention, finches may be the birds for you. We have named them Carrie, Aidan, Mr. Big, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte. Mom and Dad were born in 2012 and their babies were born in June 2013. We can't actually tell which ones are the parents and which are the kids!
We also have two males from another home named Oliver and Pip. These brothers were born in 2011 and get along well.
Adoption fee $5 each
