Welcome to Sissy's Bird Colony, LLC. You might be wondering about the name of my business. Sissy is my nickname. My brother always called me that, short for sister. Now that I'm all grown up the name just stuck with me. 
 I've always had a love for animals. As a young child my dad and I raised a variety of different birds, like: Bantam Chickens, Turkeys, Quail, Pheasants, Chukar Partridge, Ducks, Geese, Ringneck Doves, Fantail Pigeons and a lot more. My dad really taught me a lot about birds. We had a blast taking some of these birds to shows and we did some traveling to get to some of them. Winning trophies and ribbons as a young child was very exciting. Now that I've gotten older I still love raising different kinds of birds. I've passed the excitement down to my children on showing birds.  And boy do they love winning, especially if they beat me.  That puts a smile on my face to see that smile on theirs. My dad still gives me a lot of advice on different things and I thank him for everything I've learned. I take really good care of all of my animals.  Maybe too much care. I always make sure they have the best food. I mix a lot of the food myself. Fresh water and anything else that they need. My buildings have it all, from a/c to heat, running water, refrigerator,and wall to wall carpet. I've even added some of my art work to the walls and ceiling of one building. I love to paint and this was something I can add my special touch too.  Right now I have over 300 birds.  This is a lot of work for one person to do, but I love it.  This is the list of birds that I raise right now: 

Ringneck Doves and Diamond Doves.

Parakeets, Budgie, Indian Ringneck Parakeet (blue, lacewing, lutino, green and pallid), Scarlet Chested Parakeet,  Parrotlets, and Alexandrine.

Albino, Lutino, Cinnamon, White face, Yellowcheeks, Pearls and Pied's.

Sun Conures.  

Blue Headed.

Congo African Grey's 

Macaw's (Greenwing and blue & gold)  In need of two females, greenwing or another color.

New to the Family:
Cockatoo (not being bred) In need of a female umbrella cockatoo.

Once in a while I will take a small brake and go drag racing. My husband and I both love running our 
1970 SS Chevelle.  We will make time to be at every Super Chevy Show in VA.  I even got my picture in the Super Chevy magazine in the Aug 2010 issue, vol 39. Page 129. There are a few other pictures in there too of my husband running the car. It's a lot of fun. In 2013 be made editors choice award in the super Chevy magazine. The pictures below are of me running the car. 

Becoming a customer,  I will offer you
My friendship to start with then I will give you more information on the bird your interested in than you would get from a pet shop. To start out  you will need to set up an appointment with me. I really need for you to show up on the time that your appointment is for. Showing up too early I might not be totally ready for you or you might be coming in on someone else's appointment. I want to give you my total attention on an appointment and not try to share it with too many appointments at once.  I normally take a hour before your appointment to try and get everything ready for you. Each appointment is set up for an hour session and can go longer as long as another appointment isn't coming in.  I have a problem with talking too much and birds are my favorite subject. Some birds will come with a folder full of different information (hatch certificates, some flyers, DNA certificate if one was done on your bird). 

 Take a look at the New cages and supplies that I have to offer. 

Thank you for visiting my site. I hope I can help you find the perfect pet and supplies that you need.

I hate to ask for donations but it's needed so I'm able to give total care to the birds in need. Raising my birds alone can be pricey when your giving them the best care. I have a heart that's full of love and I offer it out to the birds in need. Some people can no longer care for their birds and I want to be there to try and help them out. I've done some rescues that's heart braking but in the end will put a smile on your face to see the recovery that they've done. Working with the vet we're able to get them healthy again so that they can find forever homes. To have the extra cages, food and vet care can get pricey with your help I can help others. 100% of your donations goes back to the care of these birds.
Thank you for your donations and God Bless each and every one.
Joey all grown up.

Ringneck Dove
The worlds smallest parrot.
Now this is Tiny.
Newborn Parakeet
Rescued Doves.
Both are being hand fed. The smallest one is a diamond dove that finds sleeping on top of the Ringneck dove is more comfortable. Too Cute.
Something just doesn't seem right? 
Where is my motor??? Leave my old man alone and see what happens!
God rest his soul. My Father went to be with the Lord March 27, 2015 My heart is truly broken. A Man that taught me everything.

Coronavirus Concerns:
Yes I am open.
Most birds are being shipped to each customer.
If you would rather set up an appointment I can do that for one customer at a time. 
If your coming for an appointment PLEASE make sure for the safety of everyone that you or anyone in your family has not been around anyone feeling ill/sick. It would be better for everyone to be feeling their best.
 It's not like I'm going to run out of birds anytime soon :) 
Just like I've always operated, for appointments.
My shop is cleaned with disinfectant on seats, table, door/handles and anything else that has been touched before and after a visit.
For anyone that has already came for an appointment and has later came down with the virus or just feeling bad please notify me at once so that I can do the right measures for the safety of my family and customers. As long as we all work together I can stay open.

If anyone is also able to give a donation at this time it would greatly be appreciated. Without customers the care of my birds will be harder. 

Look out for your neighbors and elderly. Say a Prayer!!
With Love and kindness we can all beat this.
Stay safe and God Bless each and everyone. 

   Count your       Blessings         not your            worries.
