It’s HOT!

Filed under: Seasonal,Store News — admin @ 3:34 pm

It’s not just children that are at risk in a hot car in this weather, pets are even more vulnerable.  Leaving the car window open is not enough.  Take the pet with you when you leave the car.  When we send animals out in this weather, we always warn you to keep them out of the direct sun.  Crickets expire faster than anyone else, so be especially careful with them.

African Grey Explosion

Filed under: Bird Care,Store News — admin @ 5:52 pm

With all our birds being bred locally, we don’t often have lots of  African Grey Parrots at any one time. Was I ever surprised when we had 2 and in walked a gentleman with 3 more for us to handfeed. One is sold and in a new home but there are still 4 lovely babies for you to visit. That is in addition to the 5 Green Cheeked Conures, 2 Parrotlets,2 Lineolated Parakeets, 5 Cockatiels and even 3 Rosy Bourkes in addition to our usual large selection of wonderful birds.
