As a parrot breeder, we specialize in happy, well-adjusted companion parrots. Confident, highly socialized babies can be your friends for life. Our baby parrots start out under their parents and then are brought into our intensive care nursery.
There, they receive lots of nurturing and gentle handling; they start out in the world feeling safe and secure. As the parrot babies develop, we add different colors and textures of toys and foods to explore with curious beaks and tongues. When they are ready, we move them from environmentally controlled brooders to natural baskets draped with colorful towels across their handles which are contained in playpens that we have in the nursery. From these baskets, which resemble natural nests, they decide when they are brave enough to peek out of their “nests” and eventually come out on their own.
When they are brave enough, we move the playpen into the family room where they learn to fly, first by flying from one basket handle to another, or from one playpen to another, eventually from playstand to playstand.
As they develop good flying and landing skills we gradually trim their flight feathers so they gain strength and skills without gaining speed. When they are ready, we move them into cages in our parrot playroom. From the time they hatch they are raised with special socializing procedures. Good behavior is lovingly rewarded and boundaries are set at an early age. Our juvenile parrots are exposed to lots of common household items so they are familiar with them. They are socialized with different humans, both men and women. Our parrots are also raised with a variety of other parrots, so they know how to be birds and have bird manners, too.
