Our Customers

We are committed to help potential bird owners find the type of bird that is best suited for their lifestyle.  Cockatoo Parrots are beautiful, social, sensitive, and highly intelligent creatures that can enrich the lives of their owners.  They can be very
affectionate and, at times, become very demanding.  In order to ensure a happy experience for you and your bird, get to know about the bird before purchase. Give much thought about what qualities you are looking for a companion bird.

Birds come in many sizes, colors, and personalities.  Some will talk more than others.  Above all, consider your family and environment and how they will interact with a new member of the family.  Parrots can live as long as humans, therefore, owning a parrot is a lifetime commitment.  We encourage you to research the many parrot species before making any decisions. For your convenience, we offer comprehensive information about the cockatoo Parrot species right on our website. The right choice will bring a lifetime of joy and happiness for you and your bird.

Our Business

The purchase of a cockatoo from us, is only the beginning of our business relationship.  As you may know, parrots change as they mature.  These changes can bring about new behaviors in our companion parrots.  When you purchase a bird from us, we are committed to offer lifetime support and guidance to you and your family.

Hand-feeding

We believe in weaning our baby birds based on their individual needs and rates of maturity.  It is important that all babies get a good start in life, both nutritionally and psychologically. Each of our babies is given a hand feeding formula that is best suited to cockatoo and individual needs.  They are exposed to a variety of foods at an early age, which allows them to explore and experiment with different tastes.  Our babies are weaned onto a pelleted diet, various trail mix blends, fresh fruits and vegetables and nuts.

Socialization

We believe socialization at a young age is a critical factor for having a confident, happy, and well-adjusted parrot. It is important to teach parrots some basic manners and commands.  All of our baby birds are taught to “step up,” “step down,” and “no.”  Our babies are exposed to birds of different species. We feel this is an added bonus, enabling the babies to adjust with less stress to those households with other birds.

Playtime

A wide variety of toys are introduced at an early age to encourage independent play and ongoing stimulation.  We expose our babies to different play environments that help them develop their coordination, balance, and concentration, as well as providing them with good exercise to develop muscles and a relaxed attitude.

Fledgling

We believe baby birds are more confident and content when they learn how to fly before they are given a gradual wing clip.  It also builds strong muscles that are important at this young age.  Each one of our babies is allowed to fledged naturally and fly repeatedly prior to receiving the first wing clipping.

Closing Thoughts

We raise parrots simply because we love them, and we enjoy helping others learn more about them.  We are committed to providing our babies with the best possible introduction in life.  This includes not only a nutritionally sound diet but also special care and attention to their emotional and physical needs.  The solid
foundation of trust, nurturing guidance, and consistent responses will help your baby bird develop into a secure, confident, and loving lifetime companion.
