The first pet
Parrot supplier who is putting birds' welfare first, as well as encouraging
educated and responsible keeping of parrots.
This site was created by us after witnessing years of appalling and disgusting behaviour by most of the pet trade. Birds are kept in inhumane conditions in these establishments. They are there to be teased by anyone and everyone. More than often, they are locked up in cramped, dirty cages with no food or water.
Birds are sold to any Tom, Dick and Harry (no offence is meant to people with these names!) just because that person is willing to buy them. No one bothers to ask any questions. All they are interested in is making a sale and a quick profit. Birds are bought from anyone and sold to whomever, as long as the price is right.
Some birds are sold with their wings clipped, which is not only unnecessary, but cruel too. This practice does not allow the chest muscles to develop properly, and if wings are clipped at avery young age your bird might never learn to fly. Badly clipped wings can cause an enormous amount of discomfort to the bird, and in some cases can trigger feather plucking. Birds are meant to have wings. If you are looking for something that does not fly, you should consider a Dog or a Cat.
We strongly condemn the sale of wild caught birds. Please do not buy any of these birds. Think for a moment that for every wild caught bird that is on sale how many didn’t make it. Do not buy the bird out of sympathy because as soon as one is sold there are many more caught to take its place and you are helping this awful practice to continue. We should be encouraging and helping responsible captive breeding of these wonderful birds.
We know that we will not be able to change these cruel practices. We hope to make you into an educated keeper who cares about the welfare of these extremely intelligent and loving birds.
Please note that at no time do we have baby parrots ready and waiting to be sold, as we have a limited number of babies each year. If you would like us to find you a cute, cuddly and tame pet parrot, you can get in touch with us by phone or email and tell us what type of parrot you looking for. We will then have a detailed discussion with you and ask the questions no other pet dealer dares to ask in fear of loosing a sale for example:-
Once you pass our initial assessment, we put your name
on our waiting list. We do not ask for any deposit at this time, and no
binding contract is made. As the birds become available, we get in touch
with you and discuss a Home Check. If everything proves acceptable, you
will be informed of the approximate date of delivery or collection of
the bird. Please remember that no birds will be sold at any price
if these assessment criteria are not met.
