Canadian Breeder of Eclectus Parrots, Timneh African Grey, Greater Jardine & Grey-headed (Cape) Parrots

We are a smoke-free family run aviary.  Our baby birds are all raised in our home.  We provide a hatch certificate and a health guarantee as well as answer questions you may have.  
We also take in some unwanted birds to rehab and re-home.

Our breeding birds are all DNA disease tested for Polyoma, Pachecos, Psitticosis, and PBFD.  To ensure the health of our breeding birds no one is allowed in our aviary except myself, my husband and our son. 

We intentionally stay at a manageable size so we have time to give the best care to our pets, breeders and babies. 

Baby parrots need gentle handling and the initial socialization by the breeder needs to be followed up by proper training and further socialization by their new owners.  Our work provides a foundation for the baby parrots to develop into confident gentle pets.  Please read up on the proper training (positive reinforcement) of baby parrots as poorly trained pet birds are not fun to have.

Our baby birds are spoon-fed and abundantly weaned in their own time.  They are weaned onto a diet that consists of a large variety of fresh veggies, fruit, sprouted seeds and cooked grains supplemented with pellets and some seeds.

To check out the baby birds go to the 'our aviary' link on the side bar.

We allow our baby birds to earn their pilots license before going to their new homes.  Flying produces a healthier bird with a stronger heart, more self confidence, better coordination and grace. 

Have a look through our web site.  If you have any questions feel free to e-mail us and we will get back to you.  

If you are interested in a baby parrot please first read the article, 'Life with a Parrot' and "A Parrot's Bill of Rights".
