For more than 30 years, I have given my time to help people with health, behavioral, and breeding problems in their parrots, and have never asked for payment for my time and knowledge. As my husband has told me for years, I have finally come to realize that my efforts have no value for the people I help. I am saddened to say that I have decided to remove this site from the internet as soon as my pairs are sold. I can no longer support people that don't feel my time has a value, and I don't feel comfortable with asking a fee. I will continue to support anyone that has bought my babies or pairs. So if you are one of these people, please save my phone number to contact me. In the interim, I will continue to do what I have been doing, but I can no longer afford the time and costs to support this site.
If you appreciate the time and effort required to develop and maintain this site, or you are one of the many people that I have helped through emails and phone calls, your support will help me to continue supporting you. Click on the button below to offer your support.
Having been a parrot breeder and trainer of parrots, specializing in macaws, cockatoos, and african greys since 1983, I have designed and developed this web site to share my experience in parrots, and to help others better understand and care for these amazing and intelligent creatures. Aviculture and keeping larger parrots as pets has gained tremendous popularity. In fact, the prevalence of parrots as pets is precedented only by dogs and cats. Yet understanding the intelligence and needs, both physical and psychological, of parrots is still in its infancy in many parts of the world.
Although I have raised most species of macaws, cockatoos, african grey parrots, and conures in the past years, I have, in recent years sold all of my breeding pairs except the macaws. The macaw species that I now breed include hyacinth macaws, catalina macaws, harlequin macaws, and green wing macaws. I may continue to reduce the number of pairs that I have, but I intend to continue raising and breeding macaws, including Hyacinth macaws for a few more years. Somehow, I can't imagine life without my parrots. I will continue to maintain and add to this web site in an effort to educate people about the care and training of parrots and help people that have parrots with behavioral and health problems. While I don't intend to help people avoid veterinary care for their pets, I will help to diagnose problems in an effort to aid veterinarians in the consideration of possibilities.
Please feel free to contact me with any concerns that you may have with a pet parrot. I also welcome any suggestions that may assist me in making this site of more value to the education of both new and experienced parrot owners. Thru the use and the magic of the Internet, this has indeed become a very "small, small world".
