We are no longer breeding parrots. All of our breeder birds have been re-homed with another breeder.
It was a very difficult decision to let them go, but after many tears and sleepless nights we realized
it was the best for all of us.
We do still have "Grace", an offspring of Buzz and Wholia that we have kept as a pet. She hatched in the
summer of 1998 and was hand-raised by Ruth. She's a wonderful bird, full of fun and life. She LOVEs our
new life of travelling and camping and is an excellent traveller.
We had a very small flock of parrots as we wanted to ensure that each pair received the
highest quality of care possible. We carefully designed our birdroom to facilitate
cleaning and disinfection. Our flock was been closed since 1992, with no new outside additions.
Our birds received a
variety of foods every day. During harvest season, we created a mix of 15+ ingredients,
which are chopped & mixed & frozen for safe keeping. Each batch has a slightly different
mix of vegetables and fruits to ensure variety. In addition to this mix, we add cooked
oatmeal mixed with pellets and spices, scrambled egss, and other fresh produce as its
available. Walnuts are enjoyed by everyone at suppertime.
Our babies were raised by Ruth Wilson. She specialized in giving each chick the
individual attention and socialization that makes for a great pet. Her family was also
involved with the chicks, so they got attention from many people. Our birds made great pets!
