There are some new faces at Welcome Wings Aviary! Three baby Turquoisine Parakeets are currently being handfed and raised with tender care. Two of these cuties are already spoken for, however one remains available and would make a fabulous pet.

off

You know you love birds when…. Though the magic of the internet, I was excited to connect with a fellow bird breeder who was looking to sell three female Turquoisine Parakeets. I adore the species for their brightly coloured plumage, soft melodic voices, and gentle nature. They are quite rare, with very few breeders actively […]

off

A few days ago I made the decision to bring home a new puppy, “Ryder”.

I know what you are thinking…this […]

“Egg”static!

I have been watching closely as several of our Linnie and Quaker hens prepare for breeding. While I can never determine the exact date they will lay eggs, I do have a sense based on their behaviour. Just as a human mother knows instinctively how to hold her own baby, bird mothers are psychologically programmed […]

Tame Adult for Sale!

off

On occasion, I do have adult birds available for sale. While everyone loves getting an 8-week-old baby, sometimes it is very rewarding to purchase an adult, as I have done the majority of training and taming for you, in advance.     Meet Sailor! This little guy is 1.5 years of age, and very friendly. […]
