Welcome to Pinfeather Friends
At Pinfeather Friends we breed a wide variety of birds.  If you don't see what you want on our website please contact us as we are always adding new members to our aviary.  On our website you will find lots of information about birds that we hope you will find useful to you when deciding which type of bird is right for you.  Check out our Available Birds page from time to time to see what we currently have available.  Thank you for visiting.

OK, so you're thinking of getting a bird.  There are some things that you should be aware of before you start.

1. Some birds can live up to 30 years.  This will be a long term commitment.

2. Some birds can be loud at times so you should be certain that this won't be a problem especially if you live in an apartment.

3. You should be certain that you can afford not only the bird but also a proper cage, toys and quality food.  Also medical attention from an avian veterinarian if required.

4. Birds need daily care and attention.  They need their cage cleaned and their water and food changed.  They should also be kept in a smoke free environment.

5. Your bird will need love and attention from you.  This means time out of its cage spent with you.

6. You need to be certain that you are willing to make this long term commitment.  It isn't fair to the bird if you simply decide to give it away or sell it after a few months.  Birds get stressed if they are constantly being shuffled from home to home.  Your bird will be a loving pet if you are willing to spend time with him and care for him and over time will become a friend and companion to you.

Please feel free to look at and download the documents below.  We hope that you will find them useful.

Pinfeather Friends Sales Policy

Effective May 25, 2015

Please Note: Once a bird has been purchased it is expected that you will pick up the bird upon being notified that the bird has been weaned and is ready for pick up. In the event that you require us to hold the bird beyond this date due to vacation, holiday gift, etc. there will be a $5.00 per day charge to continue caring for and feeding the bird. We will hold the bird for up to a maximum of 7 days beyond the date that you were told it was available for pick up and said charges will apply.

Shipping Available

We ship via airlines.  Buyer pays shipping costs and cost of shipping crate.

Please Note:

  1. We will only ship live birds when weather and temperature conditions permit.

  2. Shipping fees are paid by the buyer and are non-refundable under any circumstance.

 

We do Not Deliver

  • All birds are to be picked up at our location we don’t deliver or meet you somewhere else.  We don’t sell birds until they are fully weaned and we clip their wings prior to selling them.  We do not guarantee the sex of the bird unless it has been DNA tested.

  • Birds can be put on hold with a non-refundable deposit per bird.  The amount of the deposit required is 50% of the cost of the bird being purchased. If you decide to reserve a particular bird the deposit must be received within one week of your stated interest.  Otherwise, we cannot guarantee that the bird will be held.

  • Birds on hold must be picked up within one week of being notified that they are ready.  Otherwise, we will assume that you are no longer interested and will make the bird available for sale to someone else.

  • All of our birds are hand fed with a high quality formula and are weaned onto a healthy diet.  They are in good health when they leave and we cannot be responsible for anything that happens to them once they are in your care.

     

Health Guarantee

 

Pinfeather Friends guarantees that our birds are healthy at the time of sale and that they do not have a pre-existing life threatening condition. You are encouraged to have your new bird examined by an Avian Veterinarian within 72 hours of purchase to validate this guarantee. We also encourage you to make the appointment prior to picking up your bird.


If you choose not to have a health check performed during the 72-hour period after taking possession of your new bird, the health guarantee is void.

If your AVIAN VETERINARIAN determines the bird(s) to have a major health problem, please return the bird(s), along with the veterinarian's statement on his/her letterhead to Pinfeather Friends.  ANY LABORATORY TESTS THE VET MAY PERFORM MUST BE PERFORMED WITHIN THE (72 HOUR) PERIOD FOR THE BIRD(S) TO BE COVERED UNDER THIS GUARANTEE.  Pinfeather Friends understands that the results of these tests may not be available until after the (72 hour) period. But as long as the tests have been performed within the (72 hour) window, the guarantee will be honored.

 

If your bird is found to have a condition which affects its life or ongoing health within the 72 hour guarantee period, Pinfeather Friends will either refund the entire purchase price or replace the bird with one of the same species and age if available.

Please note that going to a new home can cause stress on a baby bird. This stress can sometimes cause bacterial problems which are easily treated with a medication your Avian Veterinarian can give you. This is easily cured and your baby will probably not even appear sick.

 

As with any living animal, fear, loss of appetite, lack of sleep, chilling, heat prostration and other forms of stress can make a bird susceptible to illness.  Which can potentially cause diarrhea, respiratory infection, and a variety of other illnesses.  EXPOSURE TO OTHER BIRDS OR CIGARETTE SMOKE AND OTHER TOXINS CAN RAPIDLY DETERIORATE A BIRD’S HEALTH.    That is why the guarantee only extends to (72 hours.)

Please note that our health guarantee does not cover a treatable stress related illness. Our health guarantee is in place to insure you against receiving a bird with life threatening illnesses or pre-existing injuries or deformities.

PINFEATHER FRIENDS DOES NOT ASSUME LIABILITY FOR ANY VETERINARY EXPENSES INCURRED.

In the event that your bird(s) should die within the first (72 hours) of purchase, an ACCREDITED AVIAN VETERINARIN must perform a NECROPSY to determine the cause of death.  THE NECROPSY REPORT AND THE (UNCUT) LEG BAND FROM THE BIRD, MUST BE SUBMITTED TO Pinfeather Friends WITHIN 5 DAYS OF THE VETERINARIAN’S REPORT.

NO WARRANTY IS EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED IN THE CASE OF INJURY CAUSED BY THE BIRD TO THE BIRD OR OTHER PETS OR HUMANS IN THE HOUSEHOLD.

IF YOU FAIL TO OR CHOSE NOT TO TAKE YOUR BIRD(S) FOR A "WELL BIRD EXAM" BY AN ACCREDITED AVIAN VETERINARIAN WITHIN (72 HOURS) OF PURCHASE, THEN THIS GUARANTEE IS NULL AND VOID.

Pinfeather Friends is conscientious and strives to raise healthy, happy and loving pets.  All parent birds are in good health.  Pinfeather Friends does not breed unhealthy birds.  The health and well-being of our birds are of the utmost importance to us.  Pinfeather Friends does not release bird(s) to their new owners if we personally question the bird's health.




 Please Note: We do not sell directly to anyone under the age of 18.  Thank you.
