Friends & Valued Customers,
particularly avian pediatrics has been a passion for well over 15 years.
Life in rural south Louisiana has always included pets and farm animals.
Animals are a big part of family life here.
“with the birds” began sometime in the mid 1980’s, following the
purchase of a single, hand-fed, lutino cockatiel. That initial purchase of
one lutino cockatiel was the beginning of an interesting journey into the
world of aviculture. At that time there was very little reliable
information available on breeding birds or, hand-feeding their young.
Books on hand-feeding or simple guides or articles were few and mostly
non-existent. The field of avian pediatrics was unheard of. Hand rearing
proved to be a trial and error undertaking filled with mistakes and
heartbreak. Study and practice eventually brought experience and a
hard-earned understanding of avian pediatrics and hand-feeding in general.
of caring for animals, particularly birds has been and still is an
enlightening and rewarding experience. To own and breed animals is a
responsibility not to be taken lightly. This responsibility applies not
only to the animals we keep but involves the ones that are sold as well.
Education is the key to responsible ownership. We as dedicated
aviculturists, bird keepers, and breeders should share our experiences and
knowledge. As well as provide novice and future bird owners with as much
information and guidance as possible.
of our experience in avian pediatrics we offer a free consultation and
support service. Let us gently guide you through basic hand-feeding
technique, choose nursery equipment or help you with pediatric problems.
We can customize a hand-feeding program to meet your particular needs.
We breed or have bred and hand-fed many avian species. These
species range from tiny finches, budgies, and cockatiels to the larger
Amazons, Grays, Cockatoos, and Macaws. We have downsized our aviary but we
occasionally make our precious babies and sometimes breeders available to our mail order
customers. A bird price list is usually included with our catalog, on this
web page or you may call or e-mail for current prices.
