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. For an adoption appliction please email BurgeBirdServices@yahoo.com
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. Are you bossy enough to handle this big bossy bird? Adoption fee $300
Barney is a really sweet guy who came to us because he had a chronic sinus infection that took months of treatment to clear up. Born in 1981, he still enjoys getting head scratches and is usually good about stepping up and being held. If you are ready for a super-sized bird, call or email us about Barney. Adoption fee for Barney is $400
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 have cured her of the infections that caused her to mutilate her feet until she lost a toe, and her feathers are growing in so she now has wings and a tail. We will only adopt her out to someone who lives nearby in case her self-mutilation flares up again (which we don't expect) 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 will take patience to tame her down again. Adoption fee $250
Ruby is a male Lilac Crowned Amazon born in 1992. He prefers men and will step up on a stick, but is not fond of hands. He isn't much of a talker and doesn't really want to be petted, but he loves to hang out around his family and share your meals. Adoption fee $250
Garfield the Orange Wing Amazon came to us from a dog and cat shelter that was having trouble finding just the right home for her. She was born in 1998 and has laid a couple of eggs so we know she is a girl! She seems to prefer men and will rarely step up for a woman. She needs to stay on a healthy diet to keep her cholesterol under control. Adoption fee $250
Bandit is a Nanday Conure of unknown sex and age. We know that he has lived in at least 3 homes, and we hope to find someone who will love him forever and stop passing him around. We have a 3 page list of everything you could ever want to know about Bandit's likes and dislikes and quirks and cuteness. Are you ready to make the commitment? Adoption fee $75
A QUIET PARROT!
KJ has a murky past, and may have been through several homes before he came to us. Supposedly a male born in 2010, we don't know if he was ever tame and loved. Please call for an appointment to come meet him if you are looking for a quiet parrot since Meyers Parrots are usually not screamers. Adoption fee $75
Twig is a Quaker of unknown age and sex. He/she was really nice with the previous owner and would step up and allow petting, blowing kisses and whistling. Keep in mind that Quakers are technically not legal as pets in Kansas due to their hardy nature. Adoption fee $60
YOUR NEW LOVE!
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
BARNYARD BIRDS NEED LOVE TOO!
Sherlock the rooster got his name because he was running loose on Holmes Road in the middle of Kansas City for 6 weeks. He escaped from someone who killed and ate his mate and was going to kill him next. Roosters are not legal in some cities, but we hope someone has room for him out in the country.
Adoption fee $5 each
Only two girls remain from our "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 Charlotte and Miranda may be the birds for you. Adoption fee $5 each
Levi and Tirari are cute little miniature Diamond doves. If you don't have room or time for bigger birds, these pretty little things will fit right in, with only an occasional coo. Levi is a female born 2006, and we are told that Tirari is a male born in 2012. Adoption fee $15 each
Brownie is a female canary who is at least 5 years old. She seems to get along well with other birds and would be a nice friend for your lonely canary or finch. Adoption fee $10
Mamacita and Papacita are female and male canaries born in 2011. They weren't supposed to have babies, so they were evicted from their previous home for reproducing without permission. We do not adopt out birds for breeding, so anyone adopting them must promise not to give them a nest. Adoption fee $20 each
Cheeky and Skittles are baby canaries born in July 2014. They came in with their parents when their previous owner was unable to care for the extra birds. We don't know yet if they are boys or girls, but they sure are nice and quiet compared to our screaming parrots! Adoption fee $40 each
Only occasionally available, and only to existing clients of Burge Bird Services (meaning we have treated a bird for you in our veterinary clinic within the last 2 years). Contact us for availability.
