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
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

Cockatiel from us.

This medium size tree-dwelling parrot lives mainly in the west African lowlands. The grey parrot is a popular pet.

understand and use human language. The Grey parrot
tends to bond to one person.
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

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.
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
cockatoo has become rare throughout its range
because of deforestation and trapping for the pet

our video of "Lamb Chop" the dancing Umbrella.

spent on them and considered the premium Parrot you
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.

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