Cage / Enclosure
Complete with perches, toys, access to bird baths. All enclosures are steam cleaned before and after each visitor. All cages are covered at night, unless otherwise requested.
We feed all birds a balanced diet, which includes:
- Pellets of your choice (Available options: Tropican, Goldn’Obles, Harissons, Zupreem, Roudybush, Jungle Mix)
- Mix of fresh fruits and vegetables, including fresh selections from our organic garden in the summer
- Healthy birdie baking - muffins and breads made specifically for our birds
- Other foods such as scrambled eggs, plain oatmeal, brown rice or pasta
- Home made parrot pudding (mashed pumpkin, unsweetened apple sauce, cornflower, fresh ground organic cinnamon)
- Seed, nut, dried fruits and veggie mixes (usually some Goldenfeast blends of gourmet bird foods)
- Clean water three times a day
Note: if your bird requires a special pellet or seed diet that we do not carry, we ask that you bring enough for the duration of their stay.
Exercise, plus lots of love and interaction!
We love to interact with all the birds who come to stay with us. We believe that birds should be out of their enclosures as much as possible. Every bird gets to come out and stretch its wings at certain times of the day. During summer months the birds have access to our large outside aviary. It is a very safe place for birds to get some time outdoors and enjoy the different scenery, sun, and breeze. Conure sized birds or larger can be in there to free fly, smaller birds (budgies, finches, canaries, linnies, some lovebirds) will be brought out in their enclosure to be in the aviary.
It is your responsibility to let us know if you do not wish for your bird to participate in certain activities. (Being out of their cage in general, being in the aviary, brought into the shower.)
