English Budgie also known for being called The Show Budgie and Exhibition Budgie
The fact about this breed has been through generations of selective breeding to create show quality. 
The English tends to be a much larger bird compared to the American/Australian Parakeet with more defined markings.
Looking at an English when the bird is relaxed the head tends to look much larger than the American/Australian Parakeets. 
English tends to be a quieter bird compared to other Parakeets. More laid-back with a sweeter nature.
They're easier to handle with some simple basic commands.

Aviary's are closed to the public.   My birds are used to seeing me everyday when someone new (strangers) comes in it scares them.  Scaring the birds can cause them to brake eggs or abandon the young.  This is why my aviary's are closed to the public. Not to mention the diseases that can be brought into my breeding areas from too much traffic walking in my buildings. Keeping my birds healthy and safe is my main priority.
Asking for Donations is never a easy thing to do. The birds are my full time job. And with this job I try to be here for everyone even the ones that can no longer care for their birds. I've done a lot of rescues on birds. Some rescues brought tears to my eyes but after my care along with the care of a vet most of these birds make a wonderful recovery. Some birds I have found wonderful new homes for them as others will stay here for the rest of their life. Doing this gets very pricey and with your help I can continue to help others when in need.
Thank you for your Donations and God bless each and every one.
                            Questions and Answers!        If you have a Question just ask.

What does Hand feeding mean?
 Hand feeding is where I take the baby away from Mom and Dad and I take over feeding the babies. I buy baby food for them and they are syringe fed until they are old enough to eat on their own.

Will I sell a bird that needs to be hand fed? 
Yes, as long as you know how to do this. I take no responsibility for the bird if you do it wrong or don't know how to do it. I will be more than happy to show you how easy it is to do.  I want to make sure you feel comfortable about doing this and you know how too. I'm here if you need help. Just give me a call and I will be more than happy to give you some advise. 

What does being weaned mean?
This is when I no longer need to feed the babies with a syringe. They have learned how to eat on their own. 

Why doesn't some of these birds have all of their feathers?
Birds are born with no feathers. Some babies will have fuzz all over them were others will have nothing. As the birds get older the pin feathers will start to come in. 

What does Tame and Not Tame mean?
Tame is a bird that can be handled (held). Mostly hand raised birds are hand tame. They're used to being handled because of being hand fed. This makes it a lot easier for you to have a bird the way you want.
Not Tame means you could get bit. The bird has not been handled or worked with. It's not saying you will never be able to tame the bird it will just take some time and some Band-Aid (just kidding). Not tame birds are cheaper but is that what your really looking for. 

Breeding or Bonding pairs?
This means that the birds are bonded to each other and set up for breeding purposes and should not be separated. Buying a pair like this does not mean you have to breed them. They can just keep each other company. Again these birds are not tame meaning they can't be handled.

Hand Raised Parakeets
Standard American Parakeet

Native Region: Australia

Sale Pending? ......
Sale Pending means that someone has placed a deposit down on a certain bird.  This will hold the bird until it's weaned. Once the bird is weaned then the customer has within that week to pay the remaining balance and pick up or have the bird shipped. If after that time payment is not made then the customer would loose it's deposit along with the bird going back up for sale.

DNA  Hold?......
You can put a DNA hold on any bird. Prices may vary depending on type of bird. 
Most birds are a $30 charge. Now this is only on birds that the DNA results have not came in yet. So if you only want a female and the results are not in, you would use the DNA hold. Now if the bird for say came back a male and you only wanted a female you have the choice to purchase the bird or to pass on it. If you pass you would loose your $30 fee because I held this bird for just you.

Knowing the Gender:
Knowing the gender of the young parakeets can be hard to tell on some of them. At a young age the cere (nose location) will start to change colors. I will do my best to figure it out for you but I can't guarantee it without a DNA.
Babies are born with fuzz all over them. As the bird gets older pin feathers will start to come in. Knowing the markings is just guesswork until the bird is fully feathered out. 
Thank You for your Support!!
I Always have babies hatching.
 If you don't see one that your looking for please let me know.
This is very important...
If your interested in getting one or more of the birds I have available you need to let me know as soon as possible so that you can place a Non~Refundable Deposit down.
 This is the only way you can truly have a bird on hold for yourself
 If a deposit is not placed then the next customer has the right to purchase the bird. 

If you have a DNA Hold on a bird then your also safe from anyone else purchasing the bird. The Hold is only good until the results come in. Once the results come in you have to let me know if your getting the bird or not. If your getting the bird then you will need to pay the remaining deposit fee to have the bird on hold for yourself until the bird is weaned. 

Please make sure that you have read the description of the bird before you place money down. 
Some birds can be tame, semi tame or not tame at all. 

If you have any questions regarding any of this please let me know.

What does Step up mean?  This is when you place your hand or finger near your bird and the bird will step up onto it. When a bird learns this you're not going to have to pick up the bird the bird will be willing to come to you.

Weaned and ready for you to take him home. 
A Really Sweet bird.
Does pretty good with step up.
Needs a little bit more one on one to master the step up.
Enjoys attention and being petted.
Beautiful markings.
This bird has entered his maturity stage. Whenever I go to show him off to a customer I just can't do it because his hormones kick in and he wants to dance on the side of the cage if you catch my meaning. Other than that he's a great bird.

Hand Raised Ringneck Dove
Ringneck Doves:
​Also known as the Cape Turtle Dove or Half-collared dove, is a widespread and often abundant dove species in East and Southern Africa. 
They get their name from the half ring on the bottom of there neck. This color can range from being Black, Grey or White.
Ring-Necked Dove has been domesticated for over 2000 years. 
Temperament:  For the person that's looking for a more laid~back birdDoves are a great match for this.  They're the easiest birds to handle and care forYou never have to worry about the bird biting you or having a bad day. It takes no time to for the bird to become your best friend. Doves will go to anyone and they're great listeners. You'll enjoy petting their super soft feathers. Males can be a little more active and their cooing sounds can be a little louder than Females. Very easy to trainYou can have them hang out on a bird stand of your choice when you're not handling them
They hardly have any health problems. 
Life span: 10 - 20 years. 
Size: 9.8 ~ 10.4 inches long and Weigh 3.2 ~ 6.6 oz.
Diet: They feed mainly on seeds, grains and insects on occasion (termites, weevils and others). Fresh fruits and vegetables are good for them as well.
 Like all birds Research the correct/Safe Fruits and veggies. 
Digestion: Grit and Crushed Oyster Shells are needed in a small dish at all timesNOT mixed in with their food. Because Doves swallow their food whole they need to give this grit to help them digest the food properly by the grit breaking the food up for them. The crushed oyster shells help with digestion as well but this will give them that extra calcium that helps with healthy bones and helps the female for egg laying.
Water: All types of Water is OK for your bird to drink. But drinking their water from a Water Bottle is a lot healthier for your bird. A dish of water can be fun for the bird to bathe in and sometimes they'll poop in the water. So you definitely don't want the bird to drink from this dish. 
Hand Raised Pied Ringneck Dove

D.O.B. June 15, 2023

Weaned and ready to spoil you!!!
The color of the bird may change a little more until the bird matures. Right now the color of the bird is a wild color Pied. What that means is the bird should be mostly white with some different shades of a brown color. Very Beautiful bird.
This is absolutely the sweetest bird.
The bird loves to get attention from anyone. Doves aren't a one person owner, they go to anyone that wants to give them attention. Super easy to care for. Great for first time bird owners. The bird will step up and as you can see loves to show off his wings. As the gender of the bird is unknown I'm leaning towards this bird being a male. Time will tell as he gets older.
Once you see these doves in person is when you'll truly understand how awesome they are.

Sale   $155
Special if you purchase both doves $255
Gender unknown.
Pictures of birds could have a slight difference in seeing the bird in person. This doesn't happen with all birds. Some bird will have a hidden gene, like a double factor that the color can only show itself with certain lights or a flash of a camera. A flash of a camera can at times make the bird look a little brighter. If you have a question about the bird you're interested in please let me know.

Hand Raised ~ Tangerine Ringneck Dove

D.O.B. June 16, 2023

Weaned and ready to spoil you!!
The feathers are still coming in and will soon give the bird a more fuller look.  Now the gender is unknown at this time but as I'm watching the actions of this bird I'm thinking it could be a female. Time will tell. Anyway she's a very sweet bird that will step up and hang out with you. She'll go to anyone that wants to give her attention. Loves being out of the cage and loves to walk around to check things out. They can be very curious birds. A nice calm bird just to hang out with you while you're watching tv or reading a book. Set up an appointment so you can see how wonderful birds these are.

White w/ Hidden Teal/Pearl markings
This little bird is really sweet.
Loves to get attention.
Does really well with step up.
The bird is all white and you can see a pearl teal color markings by the way the light hits the bird.
This bird hasn't been handled in months. Every time I pass the cage the bird would fly to the door. I was able to pick the bird up without being bit.
Would step up and just hang out on my hand. The bird would be so relaxed with me it would start cleaning it's feathers. This is an amazing bird to keep the training for this long without being handled. I think the bird would be a great pet for someone.

Half English and Half Standard
Blue and white
This bird is Half English Budgie and Half standard parakeet. I'm working with new colors. The color of this bird is very beautiful. Head is mostly white with some blue markings the body has different shades of blue markings and white. 
Does need more one on one training with step up. This bird doesn't get along very well with other parakeets at first. I've noticed the bird will fuss at another new bird but within the next day will be sitting beside the bird without any problems. The more you play with this bird it's very possible the mood could change as well. Give this bird a good home with a lot of attention.

Light Grey Color
This little bird has some really pretty markings. It's a light color like an off white with soft different shades of grey markings with details. 
This bird does really well with step up. Seems like a laid back kinda bird that doesn't mind being petted. Really enjoys the attention.
While I was working/handling him I did notice he would nibble on your hand from time to time. With more training I believe this would get better. I would recommend this bird to someone that has worked with birds before, not for a child.
I would hate to see a child get bit and upset the child. That's not what I'm here for.


If you didn't know already I've been out of work for almost 8 weeks now due to health. Now that I'm all better I'm looking over and re~evaluating the birds I have available. 

Today (Monday 9-11) I'm starting off a new day and looking over birds. I want to downsize on all of my birds. So keep an eye out for some great sales. 

This is what I have available right now and I'm not done yet.
I have some parakeets that kept their sweetness but kinda forgot all about the step up. 
These will be marked down some because they're going to need a little extra attention from you. At your appointment I will show you just how easy it is to get your bird trained to step up.
Standard Parakeets
The colors are so far: 

I have a really sweet standard parakeet that knows step up. Oh dang it I forgot the gender. Anyway this is a really nice bird. This little bird was trying to get my attention from another cage. Every time I passed the cage the bird would fly and hang off the door of the cage. So I picked the bird up and for a bird that hasn't been handled/worked with in a few months this is awesome. The color is white with some amazing hidden teal pearl color that you can only see by the way the light hits the bird. Beautiful.  

Oh and I hear some little sounds of babies coming from a nest 
(The New Babies are Cockatiels and Parakeets) that I'll start to hand feed soon. So if  you want a bird that you don't have to put in that extra care I will be more than happy to put you on the list for the next hand raised bird.

English Budgie:
Cinnamon Green ( super sweet. Does really well with step up. The only problem is his hormones are in high gear when I put him in a new cage. LOL. He loves to dance on the side of the cage if you get my drift. LOL!!!) 

Quick Update on Cockatiels:
D.O.B. Sept 5,6,7 & 8/ 2023

I have new born cockatiels. I will start to hand feed them in about 2 weeks. If you would like to reserve one please let me know. The parents are Lutino pearl pied and a Lutino pied. I would say the young should be of these markings. Will know more on the babies markings around 3-4 weeks of age.
