Here at Tropic Waters Pet Center we carry a wide variety of birds. Regularly stocked birds include a variety of finches, canaries, parakeets, and cockatiels. We support our local community by purchasing locally raised birds when possible.
When available we carry lovebirds, small and large parrots, and other parrot like birds. Every spring we receive baby birds that are hand fed and weaned right here in the store! We also deal with second hand birds, these birds range greatly in breed and price depending on each individual bird.
Our pair of lovebirds laid 5 eggs about a month ago and we currently have two growing babies!! The other eggs should start hatching in the next few days. The babies will stay with their parents until they are about two weeks old and at that point we will start handing feeding them. Allowing them to feed from their parents for the first two weeks of life gives the babies the antibodies that they need to build a healthy immune system. Hand feeding the babies will make them friendly as they age. It is crucial to do this at a young age so they adjust to being handled by humans. We are excited to see their colors and personalities as they grow, it has been a while since we have had baby birds in the store!
