Birds We Raise
We are small scale, hobby breeders and raise most of the smaller birds, and some medium size birds. I have included links to other information pages about each species. Be sure to find your way back to us if you are interested in one of our birds.
Right now we have two types of Conures.
Sun Conures are known for their beautiful colors that compare to a sunset with orange, yellow, reds, along with a little green and this is how they came by their name. They are wonderfully playful and gentle. If you want an easy-going, consistently affectionate bird, this may be the one for you. They are known more for their personality than their talking ability, though they can learn a few words and sentences. They are very affectionate and love to snuggle close. Their jungle calls can be a down side if not properly trained. We send new owners home with specific instructions on training, and people who have followed through with this training have been very satisfied.

Green Cheek Conures [GC]
We raise mutation colors of Green Cheek Conures; normal, normal- double split, Yellow-sided, Cinnamon split to yellow-sided, and pineapple. The Green Cheek is a smaller Conure with the heart of a lion! They have a very strong personality and are always on a mission. Naturally affectionate, they seem to be a bird with great emotion. They are a busy and vocal bird, but not volume-wise. They can get nippy, but with proper training this can be curbed. They are a very dear little bird who will win your heart and keep you laughing with their antics. For people in apartments or other close neighbors, this would be good bird to have.
While we do not presently raise Poicephalus parrots, we do have a wonderful Senegal companion bird that has truly peeked our interest. It is our intent to eventually have our own breeding pairs of one or more of these wonderful little parrots that include Senegals, Meyer's, Red Belly, Jardine, and Brown Headed parrots. In the meantime, we will buy these birds out-of-the-nest as they become available until we have our own pairs. We went through this process with our Green Cheek Conures.
The Poicephalus Parrots are a smaller square-tailed parrots known to regions of Africa. Their jungle calls and much quieter than other types of birds and they have a high potential for talking. Our Senegal has an amazing vocabulary. They also can be very affectionate. Keep an eye on our website and see what we introduce to our flock.

Indian Ringneck Parakeets
We no longer raise the Indian Ringneck, but intend to buy them out of the nest from time to time.
There are many sub-species of Parakeets and the Indian Ringneck is just one of these many breath-taking sub-species. They do not look anything like the Budgie Parakeet that most people think of when they hear the word Parakeet. The IRN is a very graceful bird that has a fabulous talking ability. If you want an intelligent bird with the talking ability of the bigger birds without the bigger price, you might want to consider the IRN. They are not as physically affectionate as other species, [but there have been exceptions] but they do get just as bonded to their people as any bird. They are super, super intelligent! One of our babies comes back to us for pet sitting when his owner goes away, and he is very special. He likes just about anyone and actually craves that physical attention, not to mention he talks quite a bit.

These adorable cuties are a pint-size parrot packed with personality. We raise the Pacific Parrotlets in colors of green, blue, yellow, white, and splits. These birds are a true parrot and a cousin of the larger Amazon parrot. They are extremely animated and get very bonded to their families. Though smaller than a Lovebird and even some budgies they are still a true parrot and must be handled like one.
This is the bird we began raising 25 years ago that led us to where we are today. The breeding pairs we have today are offspring of the Tiels we have had through the many years. This is a great bird for beginners. They can be extremely friendly and the males can talk quite well. We have one that whistles the Andy Griffith song all the way through. They don't really care for snuggling or being held like a Conure would, but will spend hours on your shoulder just hanging out.

Our Lovebirds have become quite popular and we actually have a waiting list. We have beautiful White Face, colors of violet, turquoise, Australian Cinnamons [yellow], deep dark [double dark] blues and purples, along with some amazing colors in our Peach Face. Every color, and shade of that color, can be found in the Lovebirds. I believe that can only be said about the Lovebird species. Recently we have had a deep dark bronzy green with navy blue tails. VERY pretty! More than that, you can't beat their complex personality. They are SO loving. It's best to just get one if you want a devoted pet. If you are away a lot, then get two. There is nothing more fun than a large cage with a couple of Lovebirds supplied with lots of toys to watch. They will entertain you for hours with the clownish ways.
We also have Black Mask Lovies in turquoise, blue, and yellow collared.
Lovebirds for beginners - Welcome
We have both the regular color of blue with hues of pink, pink, rosie, and cream. Their colors from deep blue to hot pink are almost iridescent. These guys are so much fun and are very friendly. We keep them in a large walk-in flight with our cockatiels and often find them sitting on other bird's eggs and helping them with their young. It is not uncommon for us to look in a nest box and find eggs, Mom, Dad, and a bourke. These are an extremely docile and quiet little bird. Even a bird that has not been hand fed as a baby are not likely to bite. Until recently, when people have begun to find out what a nice little companion bird they are, most were enjoyed kept as flocks.

We have some gorgeous big exhibition size English Budgies in various colors including yellow, green, white, light blue, violet, and colbalt; and gray-wing, clear-wing, spangled, and opaline. They are a little more laid back that the American Budgies and have a fairly good talking ability.

We plan to set up some breeding pairs of Java Rice Sparrow.
We also buy out of the nest, so we might have something else that isn't listed here.
