Come to Virginia and visit our babies!
Birdie Brains Aviary is a medium sized aviary near Richmond, VA with hand-raised, hand-fed baby parrots. We are bird breeders of quality parrots, and specialize in the ‘talking’ species. We are a family aviary, so everyone has their share of feeding the birds, cleaning the birds and playing with their babies.
Some of what we have for sale are:
- Scarlet, Greenwing, Blue & Gold, and Catalina Macaws
- Friendly, comical White Bellied Caiques
- Goffin, Umbrella, Moluccan, Citron, and Rose Breasted Cockatoos
- Blue, Green, and Dilute Quakers
- Congo African Grey Parrots
- Double Yellow Headed and Yellow Naped Amazons
- Relatively rare Golden Conures (Queen of Bavaria)
- Greencheek, Pineapple, Turquoise, Sun, and Cinnamon Conures
- Solomon Island Eclectus
- and the growingly popular Parrotlets
We raise the Pacific Parrotlet species, with an emphasis on the green, blue, yellow, pastel, and dilute colors.
Happy breeders make exceptional babies!
Our breeders are fed a pelleted diet, fresh fruits, vegetables, and nuts, with a treat of seeds once a week. They are all named and are well cared for so that they are happy and healthy parents. Most of our breeders sit their own eggs, and most of them feed out their own babies until we pull them, approximately at two to three weeks.
From then on we hand feed the chicks until they are weaned and ready to go home to their new owners. So, from an early age, the babies are handled daily, and are in our home getting used to people, other pets, household noises, and the general chaos that we call daily living!
A “closed” aviary
We have a smoke free environment, and we are a ‘closed’ aviary, in that the breeding area is not open to the public in order to control disease and the stress of having strangers walking into the birds’ private areas. However, the nursery is open to visitors, and we welcome you to come play with the babies and to see which may fit your family or lifestyle.
After your baby comes home
Purchasing a parrot from Birdie Brains Aviary does not mean that once the bird is home our relationship is over. You may have questions about the bird adjusting to your home, or finding a good avian veterinarian. We’ll still be here to help, many years to come. We love to receive your photos and letters about your bird-kids. If you purchase one of our chicks, and are local, nail and wing trimmings are free, just make an appointment to bring your bird by.
As the babies grow, I will post updates (about every other week) and photos of your baby.
