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: 

Doves:
Ringneck Doves 

Parakeets:
Standard Parakeets and English Budgies

Cockatiels: 
 Lutino, White face, Pearls and Pied's.


Pionus:
Blue Headed.


Macaw's:  Harlequins




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.

Donations:
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.
