patty thomas Auburn, California Adopted an African Grey in May. I was sent pictures, updates, and they were great about making sure my baby was fully weaned and ready to go home. They really educate buyers on how to care for their new baby. Would buy from them again. 7/31/2015 10:01:11 PM
We knew Dobby would be going to a great home surrounded with lots of love !
Debora Zaragoza El Dorado, California Two thumbs up for Eggsotic for the quality of the parrots they produce and their excellent customer service. I'm very happy with my rosebreasted Cockatoo Phoebe. She loves to be with the family and it's obvious she was raised by caring hands. 7/31/2015 6:31:58 AM
Thank you Debora...hope you and your family have fun with Phoebe for years to come.
Kim Davis Reno, Nevada I had a wonderful experience! Paul is awesome! Kept me updated on my little boys progress and with pictures. Such a happy healthy Rose Brested Cockatoo. I would not hesitate to buy another one of his feathery friends. Thank you!! 7/30/2015 8:11:33 PM
Thanks so much Kim...the feeling is mutual!
Trilby powrie Fernley, Nevada My greenwinged macaw is as sweet as can be, the price was great, and they obliged with my constant requests for new pictures as they raised him. I drove out to get him and they were even kinder in person than through email. Cleanest aviary possible! 4/12/2015 3:43:52 AM
Coral Socash Redondo Beach, California I want to start off by saying, I had such a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Paul and Steve. I got a beautiful Rose breasted cockatoo, her name is Pinkle Sprinkles, she is such a delight! Hands-down great experience. Thank you 2/26/2015 1:44:10 PM

andrea wonderful to work with! smooth transaction. excellent via email, on the phone and in person. i'm totally in love with my new baby bird! 9/15/2014 7:31:28 PM
Thanks Andrea...so thankful for the positive review and good news on "the kids". You made this adoption soooooooo sweet..come back real soon!!!
Jeanne Placerville, CA This was our first experience with Eggs-otic and we couldn't be happier! We got the sweetest Rose Breasted Cockatoo baby from Paul and Steve. We were able to meet them as we live close and were able to pick up our baby. They are so nice and helpful and took all the time we needed to feel comfortable with our baby, and gave us wonderful advice. They're always available by phone and so patient with my "nervous Nellie" questions! To have a calming voice on the phone means so much! 9/5/2014 8:16:55 PM
Thanks Jeanne..."nervous Nellie"...I never noticed! lol. It was a pleasure handing "Bailey" over to you. I know you'll love & care for him for many years...you're the perfect client!
Holly I would like to give an excellent rating, I am an old customer of Eggs-otic Parroting. I got my SI Eclectus female Jewel from them about 8 years ago. She has benn a wonderful bird, gentle and serene, she is an important part of my household. I love the way these guys do the online "adoptions" I waslucky enough to pick my bird up in person as they live close to me. My bird is healthy, both physically and mentally and I attribute part of that to her wonderful start with Eggs-otic Parroting! 4/10/2014 10:24:18 PM
Wow...this is a real treat! Thanks so much Holly...it's nice to know that Jewel is doing so well after all these years and it warms my heart that you took the time to write this review.
John We got the most beautiful and sweet Cameroon African Grey from Steve and Paul. They have some how figured out how to breed cockatoos that look like greys. Chloe is the sweetest, cuddliest grey I have ever met. Every night she curls up in bed while we watch tv and insists on being petted for at least an hour every night. She is really a love. Thank you for this darling girl! 1/10/2014 2:34:31 PM
Thanks so much Bobbie & John ! I'm really thrilled that Chloe has taken to John so strongly...and that you're just fine with that. African Greys do have strong opinions about who they like & dislike...and it's really the luck of the draw. I hope you have many happy years with Chloe!!!
Keith Douglas, Wyoming I purchased a Lesser Sulfer Crested Cockatoo from Eggs-otic Parroting. I spoke with Steve several times on the phone and he was very knowledgeable and helpful about his birds! I received my bird on time and in great health. She is a true sweetheart, Steve and Paul did a wonderful job raising her, she is very tame and socialized! She will be a great pet and new addition to my family! Thank you Steve and Paul! I will be getting another bird from you in the future! I highly recommend Eggs-otic! 11/16/2013 11:44:46 PM
Sarah Steve and Paul are totally helpful at every step of the way and you can tell they really care a lot about their animals. When Akasha arrived she was in perfect condition, nails trimmed, not a feather out of place. She settled in almost immediately and is a loving little goofball that enjoys to be cuddled more than I had thought any Eclectus ever would be. Two thumbs up to these breeders, who encourage continuing communication after the bird arrives - a big plus if it will be your first bird. : ) 10/11/2013 12:43:18 PM
Thanks so much Sarah...it's been a pleasure working with you too and to hear the details of Akasha's antics warms my heart. She sounds like a lot of fun!
Sandra Modesto, CA This is my first Eclectus Male. Eggs-Otic were fantastic! They kept in touch with me from the day my baby was born to the day he came home and continue to be there for me. They are friendly and knowledgeable. Also my baby is very well socialized and loveable. I hope to buy a female and Eggs-Otic is the only breeders I will buy from. I picked my baby up and was not able to go into nursery but I was fine with that because that means thy are careful to not spread disease and care about their birds 10/8/2013 9:53:26 PM
Thank you Sandra O. We would be happy to place another baby from our nursery in your care. You have been so nice & easy to work with...and we're very thankful!
Erica San Jose, California I love Eggsotic Parroting! Steve and Paul were wonderful, and they answered all of my questions and gave me helpful tips! They let us pick up my baby in person, and made sure we all aquainted ourselves before taking her home, which I thought was wonderful! The whole experience was great! 10/8/2013 1:12:29 AM
Rainey The breeders were wonderful! Steve and Paul always responded and answered quickly all of my questions and concerns. And we received many pictures to help with the wait till she could come home. Would recommend to anyone looking to add a feathered friend to their family. 8/13/2013 10:32:24 AM
Gabriele Decatur, Alabama Best breeder I could find after months of breeder interviews. They wean their Ekkies at their own pace and don't sell them before 19-20 weeks. Well worth the wait, if you want to get a healthy, emotionally stable and well socialized bird. They love their birds beyond the selling process and it shows. Always there for answering questions and helping in any way they can. My male Eclectus baby Joey is all I could have asked for and more. He's the sweetest personality + a real cuddle bug from day 1 8/12/2013 8:11:52 AM
Thank you so much Gabriele...I know Joey has a long exciting life ahead of him with you...car rides, bike rides and dining menu fit for a king!!!
Sheryl Kirkwood, Missouri LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the bird I bought from this breeder. They were so helpful, answered all questions & concerns I had before and after I received my wonderful Chester. I would buy from them in a minute and would never consider another breeder. I cannot recommend this breeder enough to anyone considering buying a bird. Their love of the birds and knowledge is endless! 8/12/2013 12:08:23 AM
Dan Akron, Ny What a great couple of guys these are. I purchased a Lesser from them and if you know the species you know a good start is incredibly important and not easy. She easily adjusted and has just the finest personality. They absolutely deliver and the food they offer is some of the best I've used. (20 years). I'm always available for personal reference and they can use my contact info. And I invite anyone interested in one of their birds to contact me. Superb breeders. 4/15/2013 10:16:17 PM
Heidi Steve and Paul are great. We received a happy and healthy African Grey baby. Einstein has become part of the family very quickly, thanks to the way Steve and Paul took care of him before he got to come home. We were well informed throughout the process and they answered all of my MANY questions, never complaining that I was bothering them. I highly recommend Steve and Paul to anyone considering purchasing a bird. 2/1/2013 1:29:56 AM
Jen Shingle Springs, CA Steve and Paul truly are exceptional in how they care for their birds and equally so in how they treat their customers. I found them to be very informative and helpful as I prepared to bring my baby Congo African Grey home. My little guy is a lovely companion, very sweet, affectionate, and well adjusted. I recommend people all the time to Eggs otic Parroting. These guys know what they are doing and they are truly the best. 1/25/2013 6:24:51 PM
Sarah Steve and Paul are EXCELLENT breeders! I love the fact they have a closed aviary, this further ensures I have a healthy baby grey! I was worried about having my baby flown to me, but they were there every step of the way to make sure my grey arrived safely! They TRULY care about their birds; This is evident in my sweet cuddle-bug of a baby grey who loves attention. Steve and Paul did an outstanding job with her! I couldn't be happier! I HIGHLY recommend Eggs-otic Parroting! 1/11/2013 2:06:52 PM
Ronnie & Donna Long Beach, CA What a wonderful experience dealing with these breeders, Steve & Paul! Their understanding and helpfulness goes beyond customer care. Their love for ALL animals is special and endearing. Went to pick our baby caique up on 11/23/12 and were amazed by their hospitality and their cleanliness of the nursery that can only be seen but not entered. It is obvious that our baby was raised with a very loving caring hand. These babies are truly tame and loved by Steve & Paul! We would ONLY buy from them!!! 12/3/2012 2:03:25 PM
Cindy Orangevale, California Excellent breeders and would buy from them again with no concerns. In fact, the first place i will look if I want another bird. Very knowledgeable, very helpful, super quick to respond to e-mails. My BHC is well socialized and healthy. All-around excellent experience. 12/2/2012 4:34:15 PM
Thank you Cindy...so happy we found a such a good home for Lexie...aka "Carlos".
Danielle I recently adopted a LSC baby from this breeder and the bird arrived very healthy and in excellent condition. It is obvious that he was hand-raised with love because he is an absolute sweetheart. Steve & Paul were both wonderful to work with and they replied to emails very promptly. They know birds and they care very deeply about their birds. I would definitely adopt from them again. :) I also must commend them on the crate - not everyone knows to cover the holes (I've seen many that don't). 11/30/2012 6:19:08 PM
Mark & Lisa Goodwin Blythe, Ga. We purchased 2 LSC Cockatoos from Paul and Steve, they arrived here in Ga. In perfect health are already acclimated to our kids have let everyone hold them. These Gentlemen answered every question I had and answered emails immediately, it was an outstanding transaction and I would refer anyone that wants a Bird to buy from them. The prices of their birds were 200-300 dollars less than most Breeders I checked on, I am glad that I found them on The website..totally an outstanding operation thanks! 10/29/2012 10:29:40 PM
Thank you both for the great rating. I'm so glad you're all enjoying Tango & Cash. We love it when everything goes smoothly...and thank you both for that !
Jason Chico, Ca I purchased a male Vos Eclectus from Steve and Paul, and all I can say is "WOW!" I don't know where to start. From beginning to end, both Steve and Paul answered every email, phone call in a timely manner. The best part of this experience was the most BEAUTIFUL and well socialized bird. Both Steve and Paul, with their extensive passion, care and knowledge, enable their breeding stock to produce GORGEOUS babies, which in turn are fed and LOVED by Steve and Paul and passed on to buyers.TOP NOTCH 8/25/2012 12:54:57 AM
Thank you Jason...thank you again! You were great to work with...easy going...thankful & having met you to hand "Oscar" over to you, we just couldn't be happier about his new home & family.
Nancy Ithaca, New York I recently purchased a female Solomon Island Eclectus from Steve and Paul. They are terrific to work with! I was initially concerned about shipping a bird across country and they gave me really honest info. They have a great attitude and philosophy toward raising birds and I was able to ask alot of questions and they always had time to provide thoughtful answers. PLUS they have a great sense of humor. Our bird is healthy, alert & curious. I totally recommend them! 8/24/2012 4:58:38 PM
Thank you Nancy for everything! I'm so glad to hear that "Leelu" is doing well and you're enjoying her so much. Keep in touch when time permits and if you ever have any questions or concerns...we're here !
Ray The Plains, VA Amazing breeder. Can't say enough things about Steve and Paul at Eggs-otic Parroting. I searched for over 6 months for the right parrot species & 3 months for the best breeder. These guys are far above any other breeder I contacted. Our bird just went for his first physical examination. Our Avian Vet came highly recommended and after he examined our Eclectus Jasper, he said I don't know who your breeder is but, this is the finest example of good breeding that I believe I've ever seen. 8/16/2012 9:53:10 AM
Hi Ray...finally Jasper has arrived and I'm so pleased that your whole family is involved in his life. Thanks for the glowing review...you've been great too !! I'm going to miss all those emails... Paul & Steve @ Eggs
Kristie Alamo, CA My family was so fortunate to acquire a beautiful Rose Breasted Cockatoo from Eggs-Otic Parroting. I have owned birds for many years, and I have never met two individuals who are more knowledgeable about birds. They are responsible breeders and, the care and responsibility does not end once you have one of their birds. They follow up, and provide wonderful advice and information to help guide you through the first days of adjustment with your new bird. Our Rosie is so sweet and pretty! 8/16/2012 2:17:33 AM
Hi Kristie...wow, thanks for the glowing review. I'm so glad this worked out for you...and esp. that Sam is loving the Rosie baby so much.
Donna Carnation, WA Paul and Steve were great, very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We are now the proud parents of a healthy, well socialized, black-headed caique. They sent pictures of our beautiful baby boy caique, Pippin and were very helpful in getting him transported to the airport so he could fly with my husband. Our avian vet was very impressed with his socialization as well as his excellent health. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone interested in living with a bird, they were awesome! 8/5/2012 10:36:40 AM
Hi Donna...So glad to hear Pippin, aka...Mr. Big Stuff has been doing well and you're so pleased with him. Thanks so much for being such easy and thankful clients...and the great rating !!
Walt Modesto, CA Paul and Steve are a joy to work with. During the course of the first adoption, we exchange many emails. Steve was always very prompt with his replies. They were full of information, right to the point, and you could tell that he had been doing this for a long time. We loved seeing pictures of our baby, as she matured. We picked up our baby, Luna the last week in May. We are looking forward to our next trip up the hill in about 5 weeks to pick-up our male. Walt & Chita 7/4/2012 12:33:28 PM
Thank you Walt & Chita. It's time for you to come back and get "Sol"...your new boy SIE...to keep "Luna" company. We're blessed to have such great clients...adoptive families...and friends like you !!
Ellina San Francisco, CA We just purchased our 3rd bird from Steve and Paul. Zoe, the black headed caique, is a truly lovely little bird. We bought her a s a cage mate to another caique we have. It took her a couple days to become adjusted to her new home and once she did, her bright and playful personality came shining through! She is very tame, curious, and sweet, sweet, sweet! Steve and Paul are a wealth of information and spent a a lot of time making sure I knew how to acclimate her properly. Highly recommended! 7/3/2012 8:38:54 PM
Thanks Ellina...and thanks for coming back to adopt another baby from us...you're gratitude is so appreciated!!
Valerie Alamo, CA Paul and Steve are both top notch guys. I couldn't have asked for more helpful and knowledgable breeders when we were searching for an Eclectus. They kept us updated with emails, including many photos of our baby as she grew. I think their closed door policy just about guaranteed that we would receive a healthy bird free of any costly or fatal illnesses. Indeed she was gorgeous when we got her, bright eyed, curious, clean and in beautiful feather. Do not hesitate to buy from this breeder! 5/6/2012 5:07:15 PM
Levi I recently purchased a awesome Greenwing Macaw who i have named marley from Paul and Steve. These guys were great to deal with every step of the way. I've only had marley a little over 2weeks now and I'm amazed at how responsive she is to me.I would recommend these guys to anyone although I think I got there best Greenwing yet. 4/23/2012 5:43:24 PM
Lisa and David Orange, CA I recently purchased our baby caique named Bandit from eggsotic and would highly recommend them. Paul communicated with me almost daily and helped educate me on our little guy so he would transition into our family smoothly. It was very apparent that Bandit had been loved by Paul and Steve because he is so affectionate. Adopting Bandit was made easy due to Paul. Our bird is healthy, colorful, well adjusted, and PERFECT! I will adopt from them in future years. Thank you! 4/8/2012 3:30:47 AM
Amanda Meridian, MS After talking to many breeders and a couple false starts I found Eggs-Otic Parroting. They have been a joy to work with. They were at my disposal from the moment I decided to purchase my sweet Congo African Grey; Scarlett. They're very honest and pleasant to work with. My Scarlett is a healthy, happy, very loving CAG, and I just adore her. 2/16/2012 9:04:46 AM
Chris Franklin, WI I chose to get my parrot from Eggs-Otic Parroting because their ratings were so positive and after talking to Paul I knew that i would be getting a healthy and happy bird. I was a little anxious about having him shipped, but 'Handsome Rob' arrived quite unfazed by his trip! Paul had taken special care to be sure Handsome was ready to come home and it was totally wort the wait. He is such a happy boy and a special member of our family! 2/9/2012 11:54:08 AM
Terry Ventura, CA We were looking for a companion bird that the whole family could enjoy (children and adults alike). After speaking with Paul, we knew that Eggs-otic Parroting was a breeder that we could trust. They offered suggestions that provided a great fit for our family and our new pet. Our bird came to us well adjusted and socialized. His feathering was spectacular and, as a result, we have maintained the diet they recommended. He is over a year old now and a wonderful part of our family. Thank you! 2/8/2012 9:59:26 PM
Annette I researched and called many bird breeders before choosing Eggs-otic Parroting. I knew after my first conversation with Paul, I'd found the breeder for us. I can't explain it but I just knew they practiced what they preached. My search for a breeder was over. Paul educated me and didn't try to "sell" me a bird. We purchased a male SI Eclectus Parrot and named him Captain Rodi. We have been 100% satisfied. Rodi arrived safe on the plane 3 mo ago and has adjusted very well. He is a real sweety. 2/7/2012 10:58:58 PM
wendy sacramento, ca Absolutely Wonderful Breeder. They kept in constant contact with me throughout the whole process. I got to watch my baby grow up before I picked her up and she was very well adjusted. They are so knowledgable that I will always keep them in mind when I have any questions. If I wish to add to my birdie family in the future they are the first ones I will call. They are the best. 2/7/2012 1:12:29 PM
Erin and Chris Seal Beach, CA Paul and Steve were and still are absolutely wonderful to work with. They were very knowledgeable and patient and sincere. Their primary concern is making sure that the birds find the best home. We adopted our baby black headed caique at Christmas and everything Paul and Steve said was correct. We have a wonderful new addition to our family. We have four kids who adore their new pet. I would refer anybody and everybody to Paul and Steve. We were thrilled with our service and ongoing support! 2/7/2012 1:11:15 PM
Roger Excellent breeder, really cares! 2/7/2012 1:03:21 PM
Mike Bought white bellied cauique was never told to keep room temp at 70. I live in SoCal at coast so room temp in low sixties at night. Bird came to me not eating well enough on own yet, dropped dead after 5 days of starvation and low temp. They would not compensate me for anything not even towards a new bird or at least the shipping! Vet told me on the side the bird probably had not been eating enough on his own before he came to me. Would never buy from them again. 1/5/2012 6:51:22 PM
I want to say how heart sickened we were to hear about our sweet little baby Caique dying. This little guy was 5 months and one week old when we sent him to Micheal Balastrieri and should have been on Earth another 40 years. He had been weaned for a month. Mr.Balastrieri had this baby for 11 days which is documented. Anyone that has adopted one of our little babies, know how much we put into them and that we never send a baby out under 4 1/2 month old, healthy and fully weaned. We understand that anyone can come on this forum and say what ever they want .... and that is normally a good thing ! We try our hardest to educate and support our adoptive families, so that our babies can have a bright future. We are heart broken that this baby will not have that chance ! We do all we can to screen every call to evaluate whether or not this will be a good match and good home for our babies. Sadly in this case, Mr. Balastrieri didn't not follow any of our advice and it cost this baby his life. This baby was so stressed it died a horrible death of "Starvation" and "Hypothermia" which was the conclusion of Mr. Balastrieri autopsy Vet report. We are very sorry that we have to defend ourselves on such a public forum and air our dirty laundry. Because of Mr. Balastrieri untruthful attempt to discredit us, we are making this information available to the public to see the true records and documents for themselves. The information reported to the Veterinarian by Mr. Balastrieri was our baby was 3 months, but you can see from the signed agreement form, the baby was 5 months and one week which was corrected by the Veterinarian, once he received the agreement form. This is a link to those records. http://www.eggsoticparroting.com/eggsotic_012.htm
Carol Paradise, California I adopted a Hawk Headed Parrot from Paul and Steve and am very happy with my new addition to my family. I'm not new to owning parrots but HH's are rare in the pet trade. Paul has been a great help in Malachite's transition into my home. I'm glad that I adopted from Paul and Steve that my Avian vet and Parrot behaviorist told me they can tell Malachite came from a quality breeder. I recommend to others as it shows in their babies that they care. I do plan on adopting from them again. 11/24/2011 10:39:28 AM
Julie I got a male SI Eclectus from this breeder. I mainly dealt with Paul who was very helpful and communicative. I got a beautiful bird who I love. He is still getting used to being in his new home with another bird and two dogs. He is progressing really well, and was taking food from my hand today. It's always a little scary dealing with a breeder that you don't meet face to face and having a bird shipped, but these guys are very trustworthy and they do what they say they are going to do. 11/15/2011 12:20:30 AM
Taylor Bixby, OK Absolutely the best breeder ever! I wish there was a way to leave more than 5 stars. Stacie, you rock!! Absolutely love my little Sun Conure, Bella. She is so sweet and playful, and exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for all the love and care you put into Bella, and all of the updates and pictures along the way. May be calling you soon to get a friend for Bella. Thanks again! 9/5/2011 6:56:22 PM
jordan ,CA, Paul spent countless hours talking to me about all my questions and concerns. He is amazing at what he does and you can just tell he loves doing his job.he puts an amazing amount of effort into finding you the right bird. Paul has walked me through loosing one bird finding another and then getting that bird home and happy. Thank You So much Paul and Steve for helping me find the perfect bird you guys where amazing 8/14/2011 10:54:20 AM
Lamont Steve and Paul sold us some wonderful handfed Lesser Sulpher and Hawkhead baby pairs. They have all been very healthy, full of personality, and sweet and gentle as handfed babies should be. 1/5/2011 2:00:42 PM
Ellina Teper San Francisco, CA I got our eclectus pair, Louie and Chloe from Steve and Paul. I chose Eggs-otic because both guys spent a lot of time talking to me on the phone, giving me honest answers to my questions, and educating me... all before I even decided to make the purchase. Louie Louie came first. He was so great that I came back to Eggs-otic for Chloe a few months later. We have had the birds for over a year and they are just the sweetest. Highly knowledgeable and highly recommended! 7/30/2010 9:10:24 PM
