• All of our birds have been vetted. Each bird – regardless of size or species – has been given a full well bird check with either a full physical with a fecal gram stain and cultures or a physical with blood work (or both – this is determined by the veterinarian). • All of our birds have either been converted to a healthy diet or we are working on converting the bird and we will help you continue that process if needed.
• Your adoption includes any follow up phone and/or e-mail consultations for education, nutrition, and behavior – if needed – at no charge.
