While our budgie babies are typically reserved before they are born, we often have young adults available for immediate adoption. Like all of our birds, they eat an organic, wholesome diet and are provided opportunities for exercise, flight and play. Adoption fees are $5 and up depending on age, color, variety, and level of training and/or tameness. Please read the description below each photo for details. Sorry, no shipping. Pick up is in Fort Collins, Colorado. We also have cages, organic foods and other budgie supplies available for purchase at time of pick up.
PLEASE NOTE: Our specialized breeding program is on hold until further notice. When we moved to a new home, we retired our breeding pairs. I will need to replace them – and I’m extremely picky about pair selection. In the meantime, my family and I are taking a break from the round-the-clock care that raising baby budgies require. To keep an eye out for future updates to our flock status:
* Bookmark this webpage and check back periodically
* Like my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Puppies-Are-Prozac-Chicks-Are-Chocolate-274291365916519/
* Or send me an email so I can contact you once we’re raising baby budgies again.
Thanks for your patience.
