Yes.  I am a bird store owner.  Yes, I
raise some birds. Yes, I whole heartedly ecourage rescuing an older bird and rescue groups.  No, I do not feel this is a conflict of interest.  I love birds
and helping to educate new bird owners--not the money it generates. I take in rescues almost every week. They stay with me until they find someone they like.

 

Please consider adopting an older bird before buying one from a pet store.  I own a 21 year old-WILD caught african grey...He is AWESOME and GENTLE! Do not BELIEVE that you have to have a hand fed baby to have a good pet.  This is FALSE in every way possible.  It is how YOU treat your new bird that determines how your bird will treat YOU.  Show love and respect and they will return the love and respect.  Those of you who know Roscoe, my store bird...I couldn't touch him for months after I bought him.  Now I can swing him upside down, tickle him and he willingly steps up-- because he learned he could trust ME.



 

Please consider giving a donation.(the kind without wings)...They are almost always up to the rafters in large parrots and they need help feeding and caring for these wonderful creatures.  

 

Please consider education yourself BEFORE buying ANY parrot.  Read everything you can get your hands on: Diet, clicker training, positive reinforcement training, toy safety, household
hazzards, life expectancy, the distructive nature, the mess, the noise level.  Birds are a joy, but you need to know ahead of time that they are NOT dogs or cats.  They are wild animals that ALLOW us into their world.  If you KNOW what you are getting into, and still choose to do it, you will not regret your decision.  You will adore these intelligent, fascinating creatures.
