1) What is your deposit policy?
Most of our babies are reserved before they are weaned. As a result, we strongly
recommend you place a deposit to reserve a baby. Our orders are filled on a first
come, first served basis.
Typically, no. We occasionally sell unweaned babies to EXPERIENCED hand feeders
only. By experienced, we mean someone who has successfully hand fed at least 25
baby parrots from at least 3 weeks of age until they are weaned. We will not sell
any bird at under 3 weeks of age. We WILL verify that you actually have experience.
We do NOT offer a guarantee on unweaned babies. We reserve the right to refuse
to ship any baby if we feel it will be detrimental to the health of the chick.
Toxic fumes that are present in your house can kill your bird in just a few minutes.
For example, the use of Teflon® coated pans has been linked to many avian deaths,
particularly if food is burned and smoke and/or fumes are present. Obviously, any
pesticides or other chemical fumes are toxic and potentially fatal as well. Many
household cleaners on the market today can kill your bird and harm your family.
If toxic fumes are present in your home, immediately open windows and doors, and
move your bird(s) to a well ventilated area. To prevent toxic cleaners from harming
your bird (and your family), consider switching to a safer alternative that is just as
effective. You can find information about creating a healthier and safer home for
you and your family by emailing us. Click HERE to submit a request for more info.

Absolutely. We sell almost all of our babies fully weaned. If you continue to offer your
baby parrot a healthy environment, diet, and lovingly socialize it, your baby will form
a strong bond. In fact, we believe that a baby who is properly weaned and socialized
by experts will be healthier physically, mentally, and emotionally.
There are a lot of myths and opinions surrounding the gender and personalities of birds.
I believe with proper socialization, either gender makes for a wonderful pet. If you are
simply curious about which gender your baby parrot is, please inquire about our optional
DNA test . We usually get the results in a few days.
Yes, we ship all over the United States and Canada (and occasionally other countries).
We ship via the airlines. We use only counter to counter shipping. The bird will be in
temperature controlled and pressurized cargo areas at all times. We are certified
known shippers with three airlines. For the safety of the bird, we will not ship on
days with extreme weather, extreme traffic, or shortened cargo hours. We only ship
during conditions most favorable for the bird. If you have your bird shipped, we will
inform you of all the pertinent information, including flight number(s), arrival times,
etc. Shipping insurance is available for a nominal fee. If shipping to Canada,
Puerto Rico, etc., please be aware that additional time, permits, fees, and charges
are mandatory. We reserve the right to refuse to ship any baby if we feel it will be
detrimental to the health of the chick.
Yes. We offer a limited genetic health guarantee starting when the bird leaves our
facilities. You may not expose the bird to any other birds or any used bird equipment
(cages, toys, perches, etc.) during the guarantee period. You may, at your expense,
get the bird examined by a certified avian veterinarian. Should a health problem be
determined that cannot be cured, we will, at our discretion, replace the bird with one
of the same kind, or refund your money. Because we can not control what happens
when the bird leaves our facility, we DO NOT guarantee against contagious illnesses
or illness related to bacteria.
Yes. All birds moving from one location to another should be quarantined if there are
other birds in the home. When a bird comes into a new environment, s/he is exposed
to many new sources of bacteria, both good and bad. Further, being moved into a new
home causes at least some stress to the bird. Quarantine reduces stress on the bird
and slows down the introduction of "new" bacteria (both good and bad) for the new
No. Full Nest Aviary is just that: an aviary. We are not a zoo or an educational
field-trip for you or your children. Striking the perfect balance to make a pair of birds
feel comfortable mating and raising babies is difficult. Leading strangers through the
aviary while a Mom and Dad bird are protecting babies makes them feel unsafe and
distracted. It is not fair to the parents OR the babies, and it is counterproductive for
the aviary. Further, many people who are considering buying a bird go to many
different pet stores, bird fairs, and aviaries. For bio-security measures, it is unsafe
to allow people in the aviary who have possibly been exposed to sick birds at other
