How many visits do you require?
We do not require a set number of visits. We require multiple visits to ensure we can properly educate all applicants and see that both the bird and the adopter are forming a good bond. We reserve the right to continue to adjust the number of visits based off of the progress we see.
How do I go about adopting a bird?

How much does ____ cost?
We are unable to disclose any adoption fees on our birds. We base the adoption price of our birds based off of handleability, age, and health. Once an adopter works with a bird, we are able to disclose the birds fee.

At this time (April of 2022) we are not allowing any tours of our facility due to the recent avian flu breakout in nearby counties. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to open up for tours within the next few months.
