Time Management: Puppy vs Parrots

off

A few days ago I made the decision to bring home a new puppy, “Ryder”. As anyone who owns (or has previously owned) a young dog knows, they have very high needs and require constant supervision until their bathroom habits are established and they have learned basic household manners. I know what you are thinking…this […]

Welcome to the Flock, Alex!

Many years ago my mother had a subscription to Bird Talk magazine. One day, she was sorting through a stack of them and I happened to see the cover of the issue on the top of the pile. I said “oh-my-gosh, that is the most beautiful bird I have ever seen”. Neither of us could […]

More of “My Story”

The past year, since June 2014, has been rather surreal for me.  It is well known that pets are therapeutic for us humans, but on a personal level, my birds are my passion and my purpose. Currently, I have 10 pair of breeder birds, and my Sensational Six pet parrots.  During the past year, I […]

Dusky-headed Conure

My feathered family has grown!  I am currently handfeeding a Dusky Conure!  The feather colours of multiple shades of neon green are just making their debut.  I can’t wait to get to know this fat little one.  Dusky’s are sweet, laid-back, easygoing and fun!  I am awaiting DNA gender test results to find out if […]

Happy New Year!

It’s not that I don’t like the holiday season, because I do.  It’s just that I love December 21st more than the 25th, which is when the daylight, ever so slightly, begins to  lengthen!  Spring is coming!  By my daughter’s birthday in January, the birds sense it and I am seeing micro-mini bits of chewed […]

Snow Ready!

Winter has arrived and I am counting down the days until the new year of breeding baby birds!  The best part of Winter, in my opinion, is Spring!  I have been very busy cleaning cages and rearranging my aviary.  I am very, very excited about my blue Quakers… I have two pair… the gals are […]

The Tipping Point

I have just rearranged a few cages to make way for the new kids moving in, this Thursday!  Tula and Lola, my opaline (a.k.a. pallid) blue Quaker babies will soon be meeting their future husbands Thomas and Levi (blue Quaker babies). Baby Casey (pineapple green cheek Conure) will be arriving from Sunshine Aviaries in Woodstock.  […]

More to Come!

off

I am very excited about my plans to GROW my aviary, again!  I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of a pair of Quaker Parakeets in early 2015!  Of course, I simply HAVE TO have one as a pet, as well, so there are three more birds to come.  Oh, did I mention they will be […]
