VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ANYONE LOOKING TO PURCHASE A PARROT OR ANY BIRDS OVER THE INTERNET

It has been brought to our attention, over and over again this year that there are a high amount of scammers on the internet, these people are advertising birds for sale and saying they will also deliver the bird. They are asking for payment in full including delivery charges, and the payment to be paid into a post office account, and often miscellenious accounts. PLEASE BE WARNED these accounts are not traceable you loose all your money, and the birds advertised dont even excist.

Our heart goes out to anyone who has been caught up in these scams, and again tonight we have been contacted by a lady who has lost Nearly £800 for a baby African Grey for sale by one of these scammers. It appears this year there are even more of them out there, so please be careful before parting with your money on something your not going to get.

If you are going to use the internet to purchase a bird, Ask for proof of the bird... get them to take a video or photo on their mobile showing your name on paper or something you have asked them to right when they video the bird your buying. NEVER pay more than a fair deposit, and only make payment in full when you get your bird.

Or contact us,We wish you good luck

HOW IT ALL BEGAN!

IT ALL STARTED A LONG TIME AGO, WHEN A TRACY-ANN JUST 3 YEARS OF AGE WAS GIVEN A TINY CANARY EGG TO HOLD IN HER HAND, AND WAS TOLD BY HER FATHER (AN ESTABLISHED BIRD BREEDER) "HOLD IT STILL AND BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO DROP IT, WATCH VERY CLOSELY"

MY FATHER HAD PLACED AN EGG IN THE PALM OF MY HAND, THAT WAS JUST MOMENTS AWAY FROM HATCHING OUT. FROM THE VERY MOMENT THAT CHICK APPEARED, AND CHIRPED ITS FIRST BREATH....I WAS WELL AND TRUELY HOOKED.

FROM THE VERY YOUNG AGE, MY FATHER WOULD TAKE ME UNDER WING, WHILST DOING HIS ROUNDS, AROUND HIS MANY AVAIRYS. HE WOULD INVOLVE ME, BY GETTING ME TO PUT THE SEEDS IN DISHES, AND FILL UP THE WATER DRINKERS. WHEN I WAS ABOUT 6, HE GAVE ME MY FIRST PAIR OF BIRDS TO CARE FOR MYSELF,THEY WERE A PAIR OF FINCHES, AND WITHIN NO TIME AT ALL,THEY PRODUCED YOUNGSTERS. BY THE TENDER AGE OF 8, HE BUILT ME MY OWN AVAIRY, IN WHICH I KEPT MANY MANY SPECIES OF FINCHES. i OUT BRED THIS AVIARY IN NO TIME, SO I DECIDED TO CHANGE SPECIES AND GIVE MY SELF MORE OF A CHALLENGE. THIS WAS THE BEGINNING OF KEEPING COCKATIELS, AND IT WASNT TO LONG BEFORE I BEGAN HAND REARING THEM, BACK THEN THEY WERE SELLING FOR TWENTY POUND EACH...LOL

AFTER MANY YEARS REARING COCKATIELS, I STILL DIDNT FEEL IT WAS ENOUGH OF A CHALLENGE FOR ME, SO I MOVED ON TO PARROTS, AND NEVER LOOKED BACK.

SUE MET MY WORLD MANY YEARS AGO, WHEN AS A FREE LANCE JOURNALIST SHE WAS THERE TO INTERVIEW ME FOR A LOCAL PAPER....SHE WAS TOTALLY SMITTENED WHEN SHE SAW A CLUTCH OF PARROTLETS BEING HAND FED....FROM THAT DAY THERE WAS NO TURNING BACK FOR HER EITHER, SO MUCH SO, THAT NOW  WE ARE PARTNERS, AND IT PROGRESSED TO THE OPENING OF OUR OFFLINE SHOP WILDHEART PETS BASED IN NEWPORT. WE OPENED THE SHOP, SIMPLY BECAUSE OUR HOUSE WAS FILLED WITH STOCK, CAGES, TOYS ECT. WE NEVER HAD TIME TO OURSELVES, OR BACK THEN, TIME WITH OUR CHILDREN ON WEEKENDS, AS WE HAD A CONSTANT LINE OF CUSTOMERS CALLING TO OUR HOUSE, TO COLLECT OR VIEW THEIR BABIES.CHRISTMAS EVE'S FOR US WAS A NIGHTMARE, OFTEN HAVING A HOUSE FULL OF STOCK WAITING FOR CUSTOMERS TO PICK UP THERE ORDERS, AND BABIES. OPENING THE SHOP WAS ALSO ANOTHER WAY OF FINDING HOMES QUICKER FOR THESE BEAUTIFUL BABIES WE REAR. CUSTOMERS CAN COME TO OUR SHOP, AND EVERYTHING THEY NEED IS ALL UNDER ONE ROOF (3500 SQF) TO BE EXACT.


VERY PROUD!

THE UK'S FIRST HAND REARED PARROTLETS

MANY PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW THIS, BUT TRACY-ANN WAS THE VERY FIRST BREEDER IN THE WHOLE  OF THE UK INCLUDING SCOTLAND, AND IRELAND TO ACTUALLY  HAND REAR PARROTLETS, SUE THEN JOINED ME IN 2005. YES BELEIVE IT OR NOT THEY HAVE BEEN HAND REARED IN THE USA FOR APPROX 30 YRS NOW, BUT NOBODY ELSE HAD EVER HAND REARED THEM. IT WASNT UNTIL I DECIDED TO REAR MY FIRST CLUTCH, AND AFTER MUCH RESEARCH, I DISCOVERED THEY HAD NEVER BEEN KEPT HERE AS PETS AT ALL. A WONDERFUL GENTLEMAN BY THE NAME OF "STAN HODGEKINSON" (R.I.P.) ON HIS RETIREMENT FROM BREEDING PARROTLETS ( DUE TO TERMINAL ILLNESS), HELPED ME SET UP MY ORIGINAL STUD BACK THEN WITH ALL WHAT WAS LEFT OF HIS BREEDING BIRDS, OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS A WONDERFUL FRIENDSHIP GREW, MANY HOURS OVER THE PHONE SEEKING HIS WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE ON THESE WONDERFUL LITTLE BIRDS, AND NEVER ONCE DID HE EVER DRAW A BLANK ON ANY OF THE QUESTIONS I WOULD ASK OF HIM. iN FACT BACK THEN AMUNGST THE PARROTLET BREEDERS STAN WAS KNOW AS "STAN THE MAN" AND THAT HE HAD BRED EVERY MUTATION THAT WAS POSSIBLE AND BACK AGAIN. THERE WAS NO OTHER BREEDER WHO ACHIEVED WHAT HE DID WITH PARROTLETS, TO THIS DAY, AND I DOUBT THERE EVER WILL BE. HOWEVER STAND WAS JUST A BREEDER THE BEST THERE WAS, BUT HE NEVER DID HAND REAR, IN FACT HE NEVER EVEN KEPT ONE AS A PET IN HIS HOME. I TRIED MANY TIMES TO CONVINCE HIM TO DO SO, AND DURING ONE VISIT TO HIS HOME IN DERBYSHIRE HE ACTUALLY AGREED TO DO SO, BUT SADLY HE PASSED AWAY BEFORE DOING SO. I HAVE VERY FOND MEMORYS OF STAN, AND OFTEN THINK WHAT MAY OF BEEN IF WE HADNT OF MET, THAT LOVELY GENTLEMAN WITH THE FLAT CAP LOL. I ALSO TRIED SO HARD TO GET HIM TO WRITE A BOOK WHILST HE STILL COULD, AND HE JUST REPLIED MAYBE ONE DAY...SOME BOOK IT WOULD OF BEEN, HE ACTUALLY STARTED KEEP PARROTLETS AT THE END OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR,,,WHAT AND ACHEIVEMENT. GOD BLESS HIM.

THE HAND REARED BABIES

  I COULDNT EVEN PRICE THEM, AS I HAD NO PRICES TO GO BY ONLY THE PRICES FOR BREEDING BIRDS. AGAIN I HAD TO RESEARCH THIS, WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM AN AMERICAN WEBSITE CALLED " SHADY PINES" WHERE I BEGAN TO GATHER MUCH KNOWLEDGE THEY HAD BEEN HAND REARING AT LEAST 20 YRS BEFORE ME. AND BELEIVE IT OR NOT, THEY ACTUALLY COST HUNDREDS OF POUNDS IN THE USA BACK THEN AND STILL DO TO THIS DAY. I KNEW THESE PRICES WOULDNT WORK OVER HERE, SO I ACTUALLY PRICED THEM, BY CUTTING THE PRICE IN HALF, AND HALF YET AGAIN. IT OBVIOUSLY WORKED, BECAUSE WE NEVER HAVE BABY PARROTLETS WAITING FOR HOMES, QUITE THE OPPOSITE ACTUALLY. IN THIS COUNTRY BIRDS PRICED TO HIGH, CAN SIT FOR WEEKS AFTER WEANING, WAITING FOR HOMES. OUR AIM IS TO FIND HOMES ASAP, WHICH IS WHY OUR BIRD PRICES ARE MORE THAN FAIR. THE ONLY DRAW BACK WITH HAND REARING  PARROTLETS, IS ITS A MASSIVE COMMITMENT, AND RESPONSABILITY, DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE TO BE FED EVERY 2 HOURS, UNLIKE THE BIGGER PARROTS THAT CAN GO UP TO 4 OR EVEN 6 HOURS.    


IF YOUDE LIKE TO VISIT US YOUR VERY WELCOME, YOU CAN EVEN GET TO SEE OUR TWO SHOW WINNERS BUT
