We have raised Macaws, Eclectus, Amazons, Cockatoos for 30 plus years. We spoon feed our babies from 3 weeks! after their parents feed them the first weeks of life. We wean the babies on pellets, Tropical Pellets, Totally Organic pellets, sprouted seeds, fruits & veges & lean protein. All lovingly socialized. We are small aviary, we have 10 pair of parrots. Parrots are like six year old's that never grow up! They are intelligent, playful & live a very long time. Life long Companion's!
