Bird Grooming

We recommend that domesticated birds should have their wings clipped twice a year. This will protect them from accidents such as flying into a window or escaping into the wild. Birds nail should be clipped on a regular basis also. This should be done about 4 times a year or when they become uncomfortable to hold. Nails that are allowed to grow too long run the risk of getting caught on objects. In an effort to free themselves a bird may pull off a nail and bleed uncontrollably.

Our low cost grooming services are provided every Sunday and Monday, from 12pm to 4pm. If our regular service hours do not fit into your schedule, give us a call and we will make every effort to accommodate you. We also request that you transport your pet in an appropriate carrier to ensure your pet's safety. 

DNA Gender Analysis

Most birds are not sexually dimorphic. This means that one cannot tell the sex by appearance only. Our sexing service is done most days, but to be sure that some one is available, please call ahead.This is a simple procedure that involves clipping the tip of a single toenail and getting a small drop of blood. We send that sample to the Animal Genetics Lab in Florida. Results usually take about one week. Cost is $40.00
