Types of Parrots

African Greys

These are the most intelligent bird species, and among the 10 smartest animals on earth. They tend to become emotionally connected with their owner.

Amazons

Amazons are the “life of the party” and love attention! They like music, singing, and love to eat. They can also be very loud when they want your attention!

Macaws

Macaws are the largest parrots on earth! They are very playful and like wooden toys they can chew up. Macaws enjoy the challenge of scouting for food.

Cockatoos

Cockatoos love to cuddle and make lots of noise. They are great climbers, often using their feet like we use our hands, and are known for their fancy flight patterns.

Conures

Conures are very colorful creatures in both their feathers and their personalities. They are very friendly, clownish, and love to be around humans.

Eclectus

Eclectus are known for their stunning appearance, like they are covered in fine fur. These birds have beautiful colors, talking habits, and a lovable charm!

Cockatiels

These birds are well-known for whistling serenades to their reflection, favorite object, or favorite person. They are friendly, funny, and love to cuddle!

Senegals

Senegals are calm, quiet, and make for great pets. They are highly trainable and make for great pets since they tend to form a strong bond with their owners.

Don't Forget These!

Our Primary Veterinarian

We make every attempt to supply our customers with a healthy, happy bird. We disease test all our breeders for the most common viral and bacterial diseases. We have local avian veterinarians that see our birds when the need arises. We also strongly recommend all new bird owners to establish a relationship with a bird vet in their area, for routine examinations, grooming, and to attend to any medical issues.
