Shipping & Processing

We ship dry goods to both Canada and the United States. Shipping costs will apply and are calculated at checkout. We do not add extra fees to our shipping and the rates are purely cost recovery. You pay what we pay.

Most shipping to Ontario or Quebec takes 1-2 business days once the product is processed and packed, while shipping to Western Canada might take anywhere from 4-7 business days from the date it leaves Exotic Wings. The Maritimes Provinces typically have 4-7 business day delivery times from the date it leaves Exotic Wings. Remote locations in any province or territory may take longer than previously stated to receive their order.

Shipping to the United States can take up to two weeks.

**It is always best to check with your preferred courier directly to be advised if they are experiencing any shipping delays. Thank you for your understanding.**

We use Canada Post, Canpar, and GLS Courier Services. You will be able to see which options are available to you, the cost, and time frame at check-out. Please note that estimated delivery times are business days, and do not expect to receive your order on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday.

Yes we can ship birds seasonally May 15 - October 30. Weather that day will be factored in as we will not ship birds if the temperature exceeds 25C at any point during travel. Shipping costs start at $250 via WestJet. Shipping costs are subject to change, and all shipping is at the discretion of Exotic Wings and Pet Things Inc.

We will not ship birds outside of Canada.

Orders placed for in-stock product will almost always be picked and processed that same day. Orders with product that is not in-stock process as soon as we receive the missing items. The majority of orders with in stock items ship later same day or early the next business day.

All plant orders will be shipped no later than Tuesday. For example, if you order on a Wednesday it will ship the following Monday. This is to allow ample time for delivery and not have your plants sitting over the weekend in the delivery depot or van. Plants will be packed to support their specific needs, and more details can be found on each plant's product page.

We ship plants to Ontario and Quebec via GLS only. If you live in a different province or territory and are interested in purchasing plants please contact us. We cannot ship plants outside of Canada.

Products that say "Special Order" are products that we list for sale but do not keep in store. We do this on consumable items to ensure they are as fresh as possible. Other products like certain toys are listed as "Special Order" because we have customers who request them however the sales volume is not large enough to stock them.

Special Order items vary in time to receive. Some products will arrive sooner than others, expected time frame is usually stated.

If a product you have ordered is out of stock you will be sent an email informing you as such. You will be informed of the current wait time on the product. When possible we may suggest in-stock substitutes, or we can refund you for the missing product.

Is My Bird Sick? - The ABCs of Illness Detection

Bird CareExotic Wings
Birds must be observed very carefully every day for subtle signs of illness. If several symptoms are present at the same time, contact your avian veterinarian immediately. Any stress can weaken a bird’s immune system, but because they disguise signs of sickness, you must know what to look for so you can catch problems early.
