Why would you buy a baby bird from Exotic Wings & Pet Things?
Well, for starters, we have over thirty years of experience raising healthy, happy babies and uniting them with families across Canada. The key to successfully uniting bird to owner is education. Customers are made aware of all aspects of bird ownership, and the most important points are outlined in a care sheet that each new bird owner takes home for reference.
Our breeding birds are pre-screened for disease and health issues. All birds in size from green cheek conure and up are vaccinated for polyomavirus. The baby birds are left with their parents for the first three weeks of their life to ensure a great start to building a healthy immune system. Babies are fed with Higgins handfeeding formula and abundance weaned using zupreem pellets and a cooked bean, vegetable, rice, lentil, and pasta mix.
We have a veterinarian on site every other Thursday to monitor the aviary, and is also available by appointment to see customers with any issues or questions they may have. All birds are sent home completely weaned, socialized, and wings are clipped and nails groomed for both their safety and yours. We also provide one week of bird sitting and your first grooming for free.
We offer a 7 day health guarantee. You must provide your bird with suitable shelter, food, water, vitamins and minerals from time of purchase. We suggest that within three days of purchase, you bring your bird to an avian vet for a complete examination. Should any health problem occur or be discovered, inform us IMMEDIATELY, otherwise the health guarantee is VOID. Exotic Wings & Pet Things is not responsible for any unauthorized vet fees. The health guarantee does not apply if there is another bird in your home or if the bird leaves the store unclipped by owner's request.
We cannot guarantee the gender or temperament of a bird. Our handfed birds are tame but may take some time to adjust to a new home, new family, and new surroundings.
We continue to be available to answer all questions for our customers even after you take your baby bird home!
Current Selection Updated Every Wednesday!
Available birds are still being handfed and are NOT ready to go home - Fully weaned birds will have the description "ready to go home" underneath their picture.
Handfed: Baby bird formula is fed 3-4 times per day and bird does not eat on their own yet.
Weaned: Bird is transitioning from formula to pellet/seed and veggies and learning to eat on their own.
We will not allow you to take your bird home until it has been eating pellet/seed on it's own for a full week - We will NOT make exceptions. Thank you for your cooperation.

While Red bellies can be nippy at times once you earn their respect it is well worth it.

They are spunky and active birds that often dominate other birds around them. Red-bellied parrots are show off's in front of company. Unlike some parrots that clam up, this bird will jabber on in front of strangers. Red-bellied parrots have the comical, playful and animated personality of larger parrots.
