SA Parrots Breeders was a guiding light in an otherwise confusing maze of information that would-be parrot purchasers have to navigate! What a pleasure to have met them. They are so dedicated to the wellbeing of their flock and own personal parrots. They answered every question I had and then some. The guy i talked to was never too busy to take my calls or answer my questions and when I visited the aviary, I was delighted to find a clean, comfortable home for the birds, one of the best I have ever seen. When I decided to buy a Hyacinth Macaw by name Mijo, Sam walked me through the entire process and included feeding and training materials when I came to pick him up. Completely weaned and fledged when I arrived, Mijo was trained to come on command, to know when to have a “gentle” beak and to give kisses. He is a happy thriving youngster, curious and full of life. I couldn’t ask for a better companion or to have had a better experience buying a parrot. I love my little buddy and can’t wait to add another. Many many thanks!!

About a year ago my husband and I decided to move forward with our dream of free flying parrots. We were coached that the best candidates for free flight parrots were large, loud, and colorful. This led us to macaws. We were investigating different species and hybrids. I have always been particularly fond of Hyacinth Macaw. We were also coached that in order to facilitate their early development of flight skills and recall, it was absolutely imperative that we hand feed the babies ourselves. Because of this we ended up with a sibling pair of eight weeks old Hyacinth macaws. Hand raising and weaning these babies was hugely challenging and stressful. It often meant they had to come to work with me, which was really disruptive. After a lot of consideration we decided we wanted to fly another pair of macaws and I reached out to SA Parrots Breeders. I knew I didn't have the energy to go through that weaning process again but felt it was really important that the babies be exposed to some flight and recall training prior to bringing them into our flock. I have to say, that the Hyacinth Macaw that SA Parrots Breeders raised is absolutely amazing! She bonded very quickly to us and the bond that she has to my husband is amazing! In fact, she may actually be MORE bonded than the Buffon’s. We were so impressed with her flight skills, gentleness, and aptitude for recall that we decided another Hyacith macaw from SA Parrots Breeders would be the perfect candidate to round out our free flight team. we have added our fourth macaw and the final member of our flock. Rikki arrived at nine months old and already demonstrates even better flight skills than her older sister Loosie. We honestly didn’t even know that was possible because Loosie flies like a swallow! Loosie flocks with the Buffon’s now (after proper training) and they take HUGE flights together, ALWAYS returning to our property to land. I have to say, that the necessity of handfeeding and training an unweaned baby macaw in order for it to be a stellar free flight candidate is absolute fallacy. It would be true, unless you find a breeder like SA Parrots Breeders. All of our Hyacith Macaws are absolute dream birds. These Hyacinth Macaws are truly the best of all worlds; amazing fliers, super gentle, very bonded and responsive and stunningly beautiful. THANK YOU SA Parrots Breeders for your amazing babies! I would be MORE than happy to talk to anyone interested in adopting one of your babies as a free flight candidate. Kim and David Gig Harbor, WA
I remember listening to a voice mail from SA Parrots Breeders informing me that the Hyacinth macaw baby had hatched and was available. This call came as a surprise, Since the day i received the call, i had been in constant communication about the baby, getting updated pictures of her and learning about her development and her sweet temperament. The Parrot Farm was very helpful in answering my millions of questions about the baby and how to prepare for her arrival at home. While waiting for the day that I was scheduled to pick up my baby from the airport and take her home seemed endless, it was all worth it the moment I saw her. SA Parrots Breeders have done an amazing job in raising a confident and social baby bird. Khaleesi (my baby’s name) is a true joy. She traveled for hours on her way home and was absolutely comfortable. Even on her first day home, Khaleesi was comfortable, playing on her perch with such confidence as if she has always been with us. It is hard to put into words the beautiful creature that SA Parrots Breeders have allowed me to bring home. She is not only gorgeous, but has the sweetest personality. She adapted to her new home with lightening speed and her intelligence amazes me every day. Needless to say, it is obvious she had the best possible start in life under the loving care of SA Parrots Breeders. The time and care that the Parrot Farm put into raising their baby birds is apparent when you see how confident and loving they grow to be. I am so glad I made the decision to purchase Khaleesi. I could not have made a better choice. Thank you!
I have always enjoyed companion birds, however i never had one of my very own. My husband came with a 35-year-old Amazon Blue Front. As I watched their sweet interactions, I knew I had to seek a feathered companion. I did some research and contacted three breeders. Only one responded and that was SA Parrots Breeders. That has to be the luckiest event for me and my family. From that first moment when we made contact by telephone through bringing my new friend home, The Parrots Farm had been attentive as if right by my side, coaching, praising, correcting and helping me forge a relationship with my Bijou. Their support goes beyond the day the baby gets to go to her forever home. I know I can call or write them any time with any bird-rearing question. During that first conversation, the Parrots Farm spent over an hour explaining the personalities of the Black Palm Cockatoos, what needs they might have and helping me think through what would be the best option for me. They sent me some pictures of the Black Palm Cockatoo that they had been raising since hatching. I was so excited I could not wait to get home and see the pictures. And so began my journey. I fell in love with Black Palm Cockatoos.

The SA Parrots Breeders raises high qualit Black Palm Cockatoo Parrots and is very selective when it comes to the adoptive parents. Buju is a sweet, extraordinary bird. She loves and trust people, craves affection and loves to snuggle. At a sad moment for me recently, she crawled on my chest and gave me a “wing-hug” by spreading her wings across my chest. This kind of gentle bird can only come from a breeder who interacts with the birds on a daily basis, plays and gently teaches what is OK and not. Buju is an amazing bird and I know it is all because of the work that the Parrot Farm did with her. Their home was totally amazing. Cages, a huge outdoor aviary, play stands, hanging gyms and he joyful chaos that comes with a group of animals (human too) living together in harmony. Inviting a companion bird into your life is not a decision to be considered lightly. It is a forever commitment. In addition to the careful thought, it also requires a lot of preparation. As my husband said about me on a FaceBook post, “the terminally educated bird is now on a new learning curve.” That is exactly what it is. With The SA Parrots Breeders guidance and the wonderful, instructive links on their own website, I dug deeper and deeper into learning about this strange creature that was about to come into my life. I learned a lot and bringing my new friend home was still nothing like I had imagined. It was better. I didn’t just bring home another pet from a breeder. I brought home a carefully nurtured friend who took very little time to bond with me. I get wing-hugs, snuggles and playful nips. And when she exhibits behaviors I do not understand, SA Parrots Breeders and they are every time ready to offer advice…and always right. When Buju started “beak-raking” on my neck, I panicked. I thought I suddenly had an unruly bird on my hands. I called the Parrots Farm and they told me it was a common behavior for Black Palm Cockatoos and they told me what to do. The behavior stopped by the next day and has not occurred since. If you want a companion bird, you don’t want to just go to a pet store, buy a bird and stick it in a cage. You won’t be happy. You need to a good breeder like SA Parrots Breeders and see how wonderfully changed your life can be with a loving companion bird that was raised by loving people.
You can say that we’ve been bird people from the start. One of my earliest and most fond memories of animals our first Black Palm Cockatoo. He was present for what seems like a very long time in my childhood recollections, or maybe it was just that he made a relatively big impression. It was quite a few years later, in my early teens, that my sister brought home Max. He was mesmerizing; a baby Blue and Gold with quite a personality. It was about that time that my sister married and went on to her new life with Max in tote. Fast forward six years and circumstances changed, as they do so Max came to live with me, rather abruptly. The extent to which that bird enriched my life can only be understood by those who have had strong bonds with companion birds. When Max abruptly passed in the early hours of that Sunday in June, my life was dramatically impacted, even more I thought possible. The time away from work and the near catatonic state was more than I anticipated; I’m thankful for the support of my family through those dark days. The house was very quiet. Time is a miraculous tonic for all that ails us. As I began to realize that my life wouldn’t really be complete without that piece of avian love that i so craved, SA Parrots Breeders came into the picture. What they are able to accomplish with such consistency in these animals they so lovingly raise, is nothing short of incredible. This is a bird lovers’ paradise complete with a large free standing aviary housing several breeding pairs, indoor and outdoor flight pens, toys, play-stands and cages galore. They raise wonderful Parrots all living in harmony. No small feat. Charlie, my Parrot have given me more joy than I thought was possible after Max was. SA Parrots Breeders have been, and continue to be AMAZINNG through the entire process. The time, care, attention and love they put into this endeavor comes through in each and every bird that they place. Also, the amount of support, knowledge and time that they so generously share with each and every person lucky enough to get one of their birds is unparalleled. THANK YOU SA Parrots Breeders for giving me what thought I could never have again, as well as newly found friendship in the process.
Sincerely, Stazi Woodland, CA
I just wanted to write to thank you so much for our Kona. He is such a great bird, and has been such a pleasure to have. I have been reading about how typically when you bring a bird into your home you have a lot of training ahead of you in order to be able to get your bird comfortable with being handled. Also, apparently it can be difficult to get a bird to accept the varied diet required to keep him healthy, and building a strong bond is a whole other issue. I’m very excited to say that we have not had any of these problems with our “bird-baby”! He loves being handled and interacted with; he accepts and enjoys basically every fruit, veggie, and other food we give him; and he seemed to love us from the beginning. His inclination to trust people is a rare and wonderful characteristic in a parrot. I know all of this is a direct result of the work you guys are doing. The amount of time, effort, and love that you put into your birds is obvious. You just can’t get a bird like Kona from a pet store, even if they are handfed. Not only that, hiring an animal behaviorist to train your bird is a very expensive service, that you two provided for free out of love and your sheer desire to set your babies and their new families up for success. Even the parts of his personality that are genetic are a result of your careful decisions about which birds to allow to breed. Waiting for Kona to come home felt longer than it was, but it was so worth the wait. I know I could have gone to an exotic bird store and walked out with a bird the same day. I also know how important it is to avoid being hasty, especially when picking a pet who will likely out live you! I did a lot of research before choosing a breeder, and I am so glad I did. I didn’t want a bird from an unknown source, with unpredictable health and personality provided by parents that I had no information about. I also didn’t want a bird from a large facility that could provide little interaction beyond hand feeding. I wanted exactly what you provided my family: a bird that was well loved, frequent updates and adorable pictures, quick response to even the silliest of questions, availability and interest in talking on the phone as needed, and advice that I could trust. It didn’t even occur to me that a breeder would send me a trained bird, and you guys did that too! Again, thank you for everything, including your continued availability when I have questions. Rest assured knowing that Kona is loved and has a wonderful life in our home. He is wonderful to interact with, cuddles like a puppy, learns quickly (he already knows to wave, take a bow, spin, “reach for the stars”, and nod his head), and is well behaved (and quiet!) when entertaining himself on his play gym. My family and I look forward to working with you again.

I decided I wanted to get another Hyacinth Macaw but didn’t know where to start to find one. After many hours and many long nights of research I was getting very discouraged. Then I found you guys. The website alone has so much information that I wish I had found it at the beginning of my research. Each time I spoke with you guys over the phone, you people where so patient and answered all of my questions. In all my years of having birds I have never met anyone, including breeders, pet stores, and veterinarians, that have the wealth of information that SA Parrots Breeders. I am always truly amazed. Thank you.

We asked the SA Parrots Breeders to send us pictures and informations about their Hyacinth Macaw Parots. TuTu's pictures where sent to us and more information including vidoes of him. I love that it wasn’t just our SA Parrots Breeders and TuTu felt we were a good match. We immediately fell in love with TuTu. We paid for TuTu and he was delivered to our home. I really didn’t expect to be able to touch him the first time but when he let me touch him and then he perched in the crook of my arm making baby noises there was no turning back. The next test was taking my 10 year old son out with TuTu. SA Parrots Breeders had explained to us what to do and were so good in guiding us. The love that SA Parrots Breeders Farm and their assistant have for all of their birds is obvious. When TuTu was brought home he already knew the commands, “step up”, “down”, and “come here”. When we walk into his room he says, “What are you doin' TuTu?” and he tells my son, “I love you”. TuTu will be on top of our bed and Nicholas will get on the floor and try to hide. TuTu will strut over to where Nicholas is, stand up very tall and look down at Nicholas as if saying, “You can’t hide from me”. When Nicholas pops up, TuTu puffs out all his feathers, flaps his wings, and squawks in excitement. Then they start all over again. He has such a personality that keeps us all laughing. When we sit to watch TV he climbs right under the blanket and cuddles. When my husband is home TuTu makes the cutest little noises until he goes in and talks to him. When Jeff pulls into the driveway, TuTu makes a different sound and I know Jeff is home. We chose to keep TuTu fully flighted, which means being more attentive, but we play hide and seek. I’ll go into a room and call his name then he flies in to find me. When he is tired of me he flies into Nicholas’ room to help with homework. We laugh that instead of the excuse that the dog ate the paper we can say the bird ate the paper. In the short 6 months that he has been with us but we cannot imagine a time that he wasn’t in our lives. Again, thank you SA Parrots Breeders, and your team for the endless hours you have put into the caring, loving, and teaching of your birds so when they join our homes we have a feathered friend for life.

I have had parrots in my life since I was a small child. I have loved them since the first time I saw one. They are the most amazing, and more importantly, intelligent animals on this earth. After not having one in my house for years, I convinced my husband that we NEEDED one.. He was a little on the apprehensive side at first, but then decided that it was kind of a cool idea. I did a lot of research into what kind of large birds were better in a home with children, considering I have 3, and came to the conclusion that we should get a Blue Headed Pionus... After quite some time, I stumbled upon this site, and that was the last place I looked. The Parrots Farm is so amazing. The first time we talked, I think I was in the phone with SA Parrots Breeders for 2 hours, talking about my experiences with birds growing up and what they thought was good for our family and also about my husband’s fears about owning a bird.. When it was time for us to choose Simon to come and meet with us, my husband and i where at home present so that my husband could have exposure to the bird at first sight. It was the BEST thing I could have done for both me and my husband... Simon took right to him, was loving all up on my husband and the whole 2 hours we were there, it was all about him and the bird... Since that point, he and Simon have been inseparable… the bird goes everywhere with him, he cuddles in bed with him like a human. He is the sweetest bird I have ever owned... My children play with him, and he is so sweet and loving to anyone. I don't think this bird knows he is a bird. I am a true believer that the way SA Parrots Breeders rears these parrots, they have EVERYTHING to do with the personality of these birds. They come to you so well rounded, not scared of the human touch, and so willing to receive human affection. I would never buy a parrot from anyone other than SA Parrots Breeders for the plain simple fact that you can see the pride and dedication that they have to raising amazing parrots. It's not just something that they do, it’s in their heart and soul, and for me that’s what it takes to raise birds. Thank you so much for everything SA Parrots Breeders.

After mourning 2 years after the death of my Mollucan Cockatoo, Nym, who had been "My Baby" for over 21 years; I felt ready to move on and adopt another feathered companion. After much research through the Internet, friends, and professional friends, I was given the name of a Parrot Farm, SA Parrots Breeders and their Aviary. To my delight, they had a fully weaned Moluccan Cockatoo Parrot available and I started making arrangements to buy him. His name was Teddy. When i contacted them through their website, i emailed and called them, Paul their aviary assistant was very helpful to me by providing me with all the information that i needed and answers to all my questions. I was sent pictures of Willow the 11 months old Hyacinth Macaw Parrot. I saw Willow on video and It was love at first sight for both Willow and I, and I started building a friendship with SA Parrots Breeders. SA Parrots Breeders have the nicest possible set up, from thermometers checking the temperature of the formula, a safe haven to play, develop social skills, and learn basic commands… all provided with nurturing love and guidance, high quality foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, soft, cooked foods and clean drinking water. When the babies are older. SA Parrots Breeders Aviary has a professional Flight Room loaded with table tops of play toys to encourage fun, safe play and bonding with humans, ropes from the ceiling, a large, safe place to fly that looks out into the picturesque mountains with every safety in place like paper tape marking the windows, protected heater, play stands surrounding the entire room, hanging interactive toys, and 100 percent supervision at all times. I am very pleased choosing my companion Parrot from you guys. Thank you again.

I wanted to bond very closely with Willow. The Parrot Farm took time every week for 10 weeks from their busy schedule to drill me for two hours every day on how to take care of Willow. With their gentle, professional guidance, Willow and I learned so much. Inspired by the beautiful flight room in their aviary, I set up Willow's room as a flight room. She has her nice big stainless steel cage, ropes hanging from the ceiling, and a card table padded with fun, safe toys to play with. Her room looks out into the forest, and she is so happy., talking in English. Every bird, not just Willow, who is raised with hours and hours of one-on-one time, training, love, and nurturing guidance, becomes a well-adjusted, happy, playful bird that loves affection, kisses, cuddling, and being with people. If you are looking for the healthiest, most socially well-adjusted , loving, playful, interactive parrot; the best possible place is SA Parrots Breeders. Every owner is given a complete guideline for feeding, and they answer my numerous calls and emails, even after Willow came home to live with me, with finesse, continued guidance, and kindness. In addition, their professional photographer, emailed me with progress photos of Willow and captured the exact moment when willow was with them. All those photos made willow and i to fall in love. Willow will be 1 year old tomorrow and she loves to fly. With her training, she will come to me when I call her both on foot, and will fly to me too. It is so thrilling every time she flies to me!!! She loves to play with her toys. Today after choosing a Raffia star from her play table, she flew to her rope, played with her star up near the ceiling, then flew back to me, handed me the star in her beak, and wanted to cuddle in my arms for about 20 minutes. She is talking very clearly. Every time she sees a new toy, or a new food, or a butterfly or bird outside she says " Oh Look!!!" It gets a smile out of me every time. Their website says it all and it is the absolute truth. Thank You SA Parrots Breeders for giving me the Parrot of my dreams, Love,

Much to our shock, our 26-year old greenwing macaw got cancer and died in 2018. We had expected him to be with us for the rest of our lives. Although we have a 16-year old Goffin's cockatoo we got at three months of age, and a 15 year-old blue-and-gold macaw that we got as a four month old, we missed another feathered companion to replace our Greenwing Macaw and decided to fill his empty cage with Hyacinth Macaw. None seemed to be available in Hawaii at the time, so we took our search to the internet. After several weeks, we zeroed in on SA Parrots Breeders. We were impressed with their website--the numerous photos of happy babies, copious information about Hyacinth macaws, detailed testimonials that spanned back several years, and their philosophy of how they raise their babies and then hand-pick who they will sell one to. After a few communications, SA Parrots Breeders enthusiastically agreed to ship a fully weaned baby to Hawaii, despite not fully knowing what she was getting into. Hawaii has some specific requirements to bring a bird into the state, and a pre-shipment quarantine period. The parrot Farm jumped through every hoop and got our baby here safe and sound. They even insisted that we call them immediately after Maya's flight touched down and the agricultural inspection station would allow us to see the bird, despite the fact that the soonest that would be in their time zone would be 1 a.m. Due to Hawaii's pre- and post- arrival requirements, as well as travel time, Maya was in her crate about 20 hours straight before getting her home. Not surprisingly, she was initially afraid of us. We set her crate down on our bed and opened the door and allowed her to climb out on her own. She accepted various nuts and foot toys from us, but didn't want to step up. After about five hours, she stepped up onto my wrist and within only a few minutes, she deciding that I was okay and walked up my bent arm to my elbow and laid her head on my chest! She melted when I began to scratch her and she's been a little cutie ever since! It was within only the first week or two that I e-mailed SA Parrots Breeders to inform them that they hadn't sent us a macaw, but a Love Bird! She is the most affectionate, curious, playful little kook. They did an excellent job of starting Maya on basic commands. It is also very apparent, by how lightening quick she learns (such as how to climb onto the leather couches without scratching them, going into the cage when told, etc.) that SA Parrots Breeders training and play protocols stimulated her mind in a variety of ways to bring her full intelligence and curiosity to the fore. Another plus to working with SA Parrots Breeders was the weekly photos and mini updates we got of our baby's progress for the first two months or so and continuing updates at various intervals thereon. We printed out all of those early photos and now have a baby book! As an experienced large bird owner, who finished up hand-feeding and rearing my other two birds, I highly recommend SA Parrots Breeders.
I have had my wonderful Red Fronted macaw "Baybee" for six years now and always knew I would add another macaw to my flock, when the time was right. After several months of research I decided on a Hyacinth macaw. Trouble is they are VERY hard to find. I was thrilled to discover SA Parrots Breeders and the very knowledgeable assistance. The first time I called them spent a good 30 minutes answering all my questions with such patience and enthusiasm. I knew then that I would look no further. They sent me many pictures and updates from the day my little guy hatched until the day he was weaned. She was very accessible and answered all my many questions along the way...she even helped me choose his name. Their willingness to share their extensive knowledge and their obvious passion for the health and well being of the baby parrots they raise. Bijou is an absolute joy! From the day Bijou was shipped to my home he just settled right in as part of the family as if I had known him for years (which is a huge testament to how he was raised and socialized by SA Parrots Breeders. Bijou is incredibly smart and learns very quickly. He is curious, inquisitive, acrobatic and so playful. He is quiet (never screams) and best of all....the absolute biggest love bug in the world!! I have never experienced a more affectionate bird in my life!! And, did I mention his elegant, exquisite beauty? Hyacinth macaws are rare and difficult to find but, in my opinion, they are like a best kept secret....a perfect macaw....people don't know what they are missing! Thank you so much SA Parrots Breeders for all the love, care and time you put into raising my Bijou. Lissa
I began researching parrots in the beginning of 2017. I wanted to educate myself and my son before we made the decision to bring a bird into the family. We read books and searched the internet for information. After several months of research I found SA Parrots Breeders website. I was so excited to find a comprehensive site with loads of information and resources. I contacted them and found two very special people that were willing to talk with us and guide us along in our decision making process. Beautiful pictures of the availabe baby parrots where sent to us to choose and vodeos where also sent to us. We brought Fergie, our Black Palm Cockatoo in October of 2018. When we brought Fergie home she was such a well socialized bird and knew basic commands taught to her by Parrots Nest Breeders. She is so gentle with everyone. We have continued to socialize her with everyone that visits. We. She has several words in her vocabulary. What a blessing she has been to our home. My wife who was not too interested in the beginning is now absolutely in love with Fergie. She has officially changed her name to “Pretty Pretty Princess Fergie”. Being new parrot owners we knew we would need advice along the way. SA Parrots Breeders are always willing to help us when we have questions or concerns. We found SA Parrots Breeders are passionate professionals in their field. As a bonus we found great friends in the process. Many thanks,

I have been waiting for a Hyacinth Macaw to join my family for at least fifteen years. I have done lots of research and, in my opinion, a Hyacinth Macaw is the best-of-the-best. I have an umbrella cockatoo and she is pretty awesome herself. When fortune smiled on me and I was able to open my home to a Hyacinth Macaw. I began looking for a breeder or aviary that would have one available. I began by looking for adoptions but since Hyacinth Macaws are such great birds people rarely part with them. I looked for a reputable aviary for quite some time until I found SA Parrots Breeders. I spoke with them and knew they where the ‘one. They know everything about Hyacinth Macaws and I could tell by speaking with them over the phone. I had to wait but 2 females hatched several months after contacting them and that’s when I got the call and had to make the decision – do I dare get another bird… I am thrilled to say we DID get another bird. Pictures where sent to me, i admired the Hyacinth Macaws. In no time at all I knew Saphhire was my girl. I had to wait several month before she was weaned. She is now part of our family and we love her so very much. SA Parrots Breeders not only care for the baby birds but they teach them ‘beginner’ commands like “up-up”, “down” and the all important “gentle”. Saphhire made herself right at home. I have dogs small and large and cats. On Sapphire’s first night home the cats and dogs were all ‘in her face’ (not literally) wanting to see who their new sister was. Sapphire took it all in stride, she didn’t get nervous at all, it was fascinating. She’s been home for about 3 weeks now and I feel as comfortable, not complacent, with her as I do my umbrella cockatoo who’s been with us for about 15 years. SA Parrots Breeders do such a great job at acclimating the baby birds, socializing them, and working with and loving them that the birds really are wonderful. SA Parrots Breeders should be very proud of the excellent work they do. When I think about it, the price I paid for Sapphire is profoundly low when I think of the hours’ that went into Sapphire’s rearing and weaning. I am so pleased with my new baby and I know enough about birds to know that if they don’t get the proper beginning it is a lot of work to ‘undo’ the damage. Sapphire is so intelligent, gentle, loving and hilarious. Thank you to SA Parrots Breeders for your dedicated work. I’d like to brag and say I have the best bird ever that came from you guys. Michelle
Max has now been with us for about 3 years and a half and he owns the family. We are writing to let you know how much we appreciate the caring and nurturing you provided in the time he was with you. Max is a loving, well-socialized pet that has obviously been the recipient of extraordinary, knowledgeable handling. Your help and continuing guidance and concern reflects folks who take a deeply personal interest in the entire breeding process, including very substantial support that continues well after the bird’s arrival. Your website, too, is enormously helpful, including the recipes, links and guidance in welcoming this new arrival. Thank you for all you have done for us and for Max. We were very much impressed when our son, Mike, purchased a Hyacinth Mcaw from you and we continue to be delighted with your support. We look forward to keeping you apprised of Max’s development.

We found SA Parrots Breeders on the internet, I contacted them and a few other breeders. We chose them because they were so much more friendly, they were willing to talk with us, and wanted to know something about us before they would offer us one of their beautiful babies. The other breeders also made it abundantly clear that once the baby was here at home, they no longer offered advice of any kind, SA Parrots Breeders had told us all along that we were welcomed to call anytime, whether we had questions, or even just wanted to chat. They emailed me in late March last year to let me know that we're going to start breeding their Hyacinth Macaws. We were so excited!!! Then in April they sent another email, and informed us that our baby had been hatched, and a few days later the sweetest picture. They sent pictures every few weeks, it seemed like forever for us, and I plagued them with emails! they never lost patience with me and answered me every time. I know I must have driven they lady who was emailing me crazy! Then the day finally arrived when she said that our little girl was ready to come home. They shipped four babies that day, the other three were able to stay together for a lot of their way, but poor little Denali was by herself from the get-go. She had to travel the least distance, and ended up being delivered just about last I think, due to plane delays. She'd been in her travel carrier all day long, and in the plane with a puppy, when she first saw us, she yipped just like a puppy and our real love affair began! She didn't take long to warm up to us, she has her favorites, and a different relationship with everyone in the house, my husband, myself, and our three kids. She is sweet, funny, loveable, affectionate and calm. She's also the quietest little bird I've ever seen. She vocalizes a lot, but she doesn't scream, the only time she's loud, is when she's really excited and prould of herself, usually after getting away with something she knows she isn't supposed to do. She makes us laugh every day, Mike and Ben aren't lying when they say their babies love to be loved. I still email them regularly and we'd still like to take a trip to meet them in person, Denali too of course. We're so grateful to Mike and Ben, they are truly the best at what they do and you can tell by talking with them how much they enjoy their companions!!!

Just wanted to update you on our first 6 months together. I couldn't have asked for a better bird. Aspen is the life of the party around here! We've been busy learning new tricks and saying hello. He's so responsive and affectionate. Loves to be held and rubbed all over. If done to long (about 60 seconds) he turns into a puddle of feathers. The weather has started to warm up here and he now joins us for dog walks. Doesn't mind the feather tether and gets anxious to go, when he sees it. And the kids, they get so excited and squeal whenever we're out and about. Not quite sure who has more fun there? He's still a big boy. Eats everything offered and loves to drop food for the dogs. I truly appreciate and applaud all the effort you both put into making him a mentally and emotionally well rounded bird. He's fearless, easy going and always willing to try something new. And looks forward to doing it. Makes taking the reins from you seem so effortless, especially from a beginners stand point. The best part is - you're only a phone call away if I need it. Thank you again for the opportunity to be owned by an exceptional bird, from an equally exceptional breeder. Karen
Kopi has now been part of our family for 3 months! She is an incredible being and our involvement with her goes so far beyond enjoying a "pet" that words just don't begin to describe the level of interaction and connection of spirits that exists with Kopi for each of us. Our wait for Kopi felt like forever; our experiences with the 2 pet shop birds that didn't work out that were the catalyst that led us to SA Parrots Breeders now seems like fate. We were meant to find each other and for Kopi to be here. Everyday she makes me smile, laugh like a silly woman or just brings me to the point of tears - joyful-heartfelt tears of blessing for this gift that is Kopi. We cannot thank you both enough for the part you played in Kopi's first months of life. She is beautiful inside and out because of your love and care! The best, Love from Cyndi O... I was at first skeptical about taking on the responsiblity of another animal (in the zoo we already have). However, Kopi has turned out to be a welcome addition. I have the morning shift and we usually spend an hour or two playing and scritching. It is a fun way to start the day. As Cyndi would tell you, I am the spoiler, not much of a disciplinarian, but I think we get along well. Thank you for raising a healthy, beautiful bird and the advice you continue to give us. Kopi is Cool!!. Thank you so much for the effort and care you put into Kopi to shape her into the amazing familiy member we have received. The wait was undeniably worth it, and based on what they have seen with Kopi, my friends may be future customers. Kip O... I just wanted to let you both know that my family and I are truly blessed to have found you and our wonderful new addition to the family...Kopi! Not a day goes by that we are not amazed as to how intelligent this creature is and how lucky we are that she came from you! We love her more and more each day and can only imagine what the future holds as she matures further and we see her "true" colors. The " teen" years are approaching faster than we thought. LOL. Kopi is so smart and she is learning so many new things... It is very telling of where and who she came from. You guys gave us and raised up an exquisite animal (although she thinks she is a human) and we could not be more grateful! Your are the best! Take care and we will talk to you soon.

The Story of Billy a very special Black Palm Cockatoo. To all the folks out there looking for a special friend, you cannot get any better than buying your bird from SA Parrots Breeders. My story goes like this. One day last year while looking on the internet for Parrots breeders I came upon SA Parrots Breeders. I sat there and read every part of their website. I was so impressed with what I read I called my husband and said we Have to meet these people! The adventure began by a warm call to them, then a deposit for a future EGG! owow were we excited! Not to long, a call came that our baby was born, followed by pictures every few weeks. Everyone in our town got to see, my husband is a bartender so everyone down there saw to. Many people followed the progress of baby billy, it was so fun to share this with others. It finally came time to get our baby come home. We could not wait to see the little fellow! When he arrived, it so happened that Barbara Heidenreich was doing a weekend class-- double bonus, that we saw our guy for the first time. love at first sight! We got an exceptional baby, he has been a complete joy in our lives and he has been given so much love and training that it makes our job to carry on so easy! It was great to also take the class there too and boy do you learn a lot, meet all kinds of parrot people and swap such FUNNY stories. A weekend of laughter and knowledge and you feel like you have been given an amazing gift to be able to live with these incredible creatures in harmony. The training and time SA Parrots Breeders put into their birds is so worth it for the bird's future and yours. Billy is nothing but loving, so easy to handle and gets along great with our other two macaws -- going to the vet the other day was a joy -- and all this you get with SA Parrots Breeders, these birds are raised with a good foundation and we have found it to be really easy to maintain it. THEIR BABIES LOVE TO BE LOVED!!!!!!!! and you will LOVE TO LOVE THEIR BABIES!!!!!!!! I could not recommend them more! We have Had Billy now for 2 years and the SA Parrots Breeders and I have been in touch every few weeks, they will be there to answer any questions you have and their knowledge is huge! they are extremely easy to talk to and every time you talk you will learn something more that what its all about ? If you are like me out there reading sites... don¹t go any further... you have found who you are looking for... I just don't think it gets any better than SA Parrots Breeders Thank you for enhancing our lives so much. Buying one of these birds is a lifetime commitment and you have given us a lifetime of learning and enjoyment. Big love and kisses from Billy Karolynne and Doug

I really don't know where to start, but I guess saying thank you for starters is adequate. Sammy has helped me and my family deal with the loss of a dear family member as you already knew. I can't say enough about how well trained your babies are and how easy the transition was for me. It was like you guys gave me a parrot with memorized instructions on how to behave and live life. Sammy is doing very well and learning a lot. He has become bilingual in that he has learned spanish and english words. I guess cause both languages are spoken in my household in order for my daughters to become fluent in both. He loves to eat. Boy, does he love to eat, lol! He loves his grapes and other fruits. He will also destroy any toy that is put in his path. In addition, he enjoys his time in the play gym where he flaps his wings for everyone to see how beautiful they are. Once again thank you SA Parrots Breeders who made this possible.

Our family would like to thank you for raising such a beautiful bird. The time spent waiting was well worth it. He has been everything you promised and then some. I had been told by four other bird breeders that you have done an excellent job of raising Cheech. His temperament has maintained the same. He loves to cuddle. He does very well with our hectic household, and gets along well with the kids and dogs. Week after week he learns more and more. He is very good at begging for attention or food by saying 'Hello', and barks back at the dogs when he gets excited. We just recently finished his jungle scene mural in his play area, and its just awesome. It took him a little bit to figure out that the trees weren't real and couldn't step on them. I'll send you pictures as soon as I can. Anyway, thought I would fill you in on Cheech's progress. It's great! He will definitely be a lifelong companion. I hope to one day get him a partner, and when I do, I'll be sure to give you a call. Thanks for the great service you've given us. Your hard work with these birds really shows. The Mario's family,

I just wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job with Berry our Hyacinth Macaw. The very first night we had him he was cautious, but loving. In less then a weeks time we had bonded. He will hear me in another room and fly off his play gym to come find me. The first time he did this he flew to the loveseat (close to his play gym) crawled down to the floor and came across the room to the chair I was sitting in. He then proceeded to climb up the chair sit on my chest and tuck his head under my chin so I could pet him. How cute is that! Your babies are true to your word, they love to be loved. He says Hello to me each morning and loves to cuddle. I just can't thank you enough for my beautiful baby Macaw. We've had Berry for almost a month now and I just love him more each day. We've settled into a routine in which he is out of his cage most of the day. He loves his play gym and all his toys. His favorite thing (besides being loved) is to hang on his coiled rope I have in the kitchen by the window. There are several toys hanging on it and he absolutely loves to be on that thing. He's learned how to push himself off of one of the kitchen chairs so he can swing. He's so funny to watch as he plays. One of his other "fun" things to do is drop food from his play gym and feed my dogs. I hope to send you a picture soon. Thanks for all your help and all your dedication to raising such wonderful companions.

I Brought my baby boy home with me about a year ago, "The Big Kahuna" I had to wait for him to weaned because SA Parrots Breeders does not force weaned their birds they abundance weaned. It was well worth the wait. He was provided with such nurturing guidance and love he slid right into our routine without missing a beat. My husband races motorcycles and we take Kahuna with us, even with all the commotion, people and engines, he just sits on his stand basking in the sun on one foot. So well adjusted and socialized he enjoys every moment. You can really see the difference, We owe all of our happiness to them! Lisa Whitworth
