Species: Cockatiel (yes, this is a Parrot)

   

 

Normal cockatiels are gray, with white patches on the wings. They have a yellow/white face with a bright orange patch over the 'ear'. Variations include: Pied (varying white patches cover body), Pearl (each feather retains gray color, with white interspersed), Lutino (Bird body is white and yellow with yellow/white/ orange face), and White Face Albino (all white bird).
 Cockatiels have a powder to keep their wings water resistant.

Cockatiels have a very good personality.  Can be trained to mimic whistles and talk short phrases.  Some people say the the males are more easily trained to talk.  In contrast, Lovebirds, especially female lovebirds, at about 3 years old, becomes nasty, so from our experience we now no longer recommend Lovebirds as pets.  This is why we no longer stock Lovebirds.  In comparing to Lovebirds a Cockatiel if far better as your first pet.

For the Cockatiel Record Book:  We are impress to learn of a Cockatiel that lived to the oldest age on record for a Cockatiel of 30 years and six months as reported by Jim and Nancy of Tucson who on March 5th, 2009 purchased a replacement Cockatiel from us.

Up to 16 inches in length, normal color is green.  Known to be good talkers.

 

Species: Conures

Nanday                   Sun                   Patagonia

Of all the Conures, the most popular and playful is the Sun Conure.  Sun Conures have beautiful red/orange/yellow feathers over most of the bird. The wings have some green feathers.  The younger birds are more green, and their brighter colors appear gradually over a period of 18 months.   All Sun Conures have a white skin patch around each eye. Their average weight is 100g to 120g.   Many Sun Conure owners say it is possible to train the birds to be quiet. 

Patagonian Conures (photo on right) have an extremely pleasing green coloration and are regarded as a most desirable addition to many bird collections.  The Patagonia is about twice as large as a Sun Conure.

The Nanday Conure (photo on left) has a black head and is about 4% larger than a Sun Conure.

 

Species: African Grey

  

This medium size tree-dwelling parrot lives mainly in the west African lowlands. The grey parrot is a popular pet. It's known to be one of the best parrots at talking and mimicry.  Studies have shown that the Grey can actually understand and use human language. The Grey parrot tends to bond to one person.

 

Species: Cockatoos

 

Goffin  has a white crest and is a slightly smaller parrot than the Lessor Sulfer Cockatoo below.  The Goffin is one of the most active of all the cockatoos.  Playful and gentle are two common traits of the Goffin Cockatoo.

Incredibly popular as a pet, cockatoos eat seeds and ground foliage as well as digging for roots. They make great pets.


Lesser Sulfur Crested
: The smallest of the Sulfer Crested is easy to train to learn tricks.  Quite beautiful with a yellow crest and yellow cheek patches.


Citron Crested
  are a related species to the Lesser; they have an orange crest & cheek patches.
It is difficult to imagine a more beautiful bird than the Citron Crested cockatoo.  Originally from the island of Sumba in Indonesia, this subspecies of the Lesser Sulfur Crested cockatoo has become rare throughout its range because of deforestation and trapping for the pet trade.


Umbrella
:  Large white bird with a umbrella style white crest.   Small females weigh as little as 420g, and large males as much as 700g.  The Umbrella is known to be a very friendly bird.   They are also generally quiet birds.
Many Umbrella Cockatoos learn to dance to music, see our video of "Lamb Chop" the dancing Umbrella.

Rose Breasted Cockatoos:  also know as Gala Cockatoos.  Length 14 inches; weight 300 grams, beautiful, playful and fun.  Worth every penny spent on them and considered the premium Parrot you can own.

Moluccans: The word "Respect" applies to this large Cockatoo. It is the largest of all normally available cockatoos. A weight of 1100 grams is not uncommon for this very large white bird with a pinkish tinge to their feathers.  The Moluccan has possibly the most beautiful "definitive" cockatoo crest of all cockatoos.  The crest is a deep pink/red color.  The Moluccan becomes very affectionate after only a short time.  They are known to be good talkers.

We breed all of the Cockatoos listed above.

 

Species: Macaws

 

 

Blue and Gold: A large bird whose head, back, and wings are covered with a blue-green color. The frontal body plumage is yellow. The Blue and Gold has a white skin face mask.

Military Macaw:   A mostly green bird, that can get to about 27 to 29 inches long.   When trained properly it can be an good pet.

Miligold Macaw (as seen in above photo) is my personal favorite parrot.  This large Macaw is a cross between the Military and the Blue and Gold macaw.    From our experience with over 3000 parrots in 37 years, the Miligold is the most intelligent of all Parrots.

Catalina Macaw is a nice looking cross between a Scarlet and a Blue and gold Macaw.  Not as predictably docile and friendly as the Miligold Macaw.

 

Species: Amazons

 
    
Double Yellow Head Amazon

 

Double Yellow-head Amazon:  One of the largest Amazons with an amazing singing and talking capability.  The head as in photo above is completely yellow and so is most of the neck.  Much more colorful than the Yellow Nape described below.   The Double Yellow Head and the Blue Front are rated in the group of the top five talking birds.  They have very clear voices and learn new words easily. They are also good at singing, laughing and whistling. These birds are extremely loving and loyal for the experienced bird owner who can read Amazon body language.

Yellow Nape: Green with some yellow feathers on the nape of the neck (usually start to appear after the bird is 3 years old). The amount is highly variable. Some Yellow napes have no yellow feathers at all on the nape even after year five. The bend of wing is green.  Wing speculum is red with some blue.  Secondary coverts pale yellow on wing edge. Beak is dark grey. Cere black, grey eye ring, orange eyes. Legs light grey. The Parvipes subspecies is slightly smaller in size, has red on bend of wing, beak is paler, and often has yellow spot on crown. Immature birds have little or no yellow on nape and a dark iris.

 Blue Front Amazon:   Green overall; it has a yellow face, with the blue feathers around the beak.   Feathers faintly edged with black;  lower cheeks and chin green, blue or yellow; bend of wing red, sometimes with scattering of yellow feathers; edge of wing yellowish-green; primaries and primary-coverts with blue tips; red wing-speculum on the outer five secondary feathers; tail green with greenish-yellow tips; base of outer feathers red; eye-ring whitish to grey; beak dark grey to black; iris orange.  Young Blue Fronts up to two years old have less colorful plumage and a dark iris.   Average Length: 14.5 inches

Many Blue Fronts have become incredible talkers, in Europe they are considered to be the Best Talking of all Parrots.

 

White Front Amazon:  Smallest Amazon, still very capable of being a good talker.  But a real bargain as a pet, since its original cost is smaller and it eats less than the other Amazons listed here.
 

Orange Wing Amazon: A medium greenish-blue Amazon with several orange feathers in the wings. This Amazon could possibly be the easiest to train. 
This Amazon Parrot was featured in the Pirate movie   The Adventures of Long John Silver (1955)

The longest living parrots are Amazon Parrots and have been know to live to be 80 years old.  We can very much recommend them a pets to anyone who likes a deep exotic character that will change sometimes ten times a day.  Fascinating pets that love communicating with their owners in unusual ways.
