BIRDS

Pierre the Peacock, an Exotic BirdThis is a very broad category, as we have birds that fit every description - exotics, wildlife and domestic birds which include those typically found on farms.  Included here are also those birds, which while technically exotic, are kept as pets. Among our birds are emus, rheas, geese of all types from all countries, exotic and domestic ducks, chickens, roosters, turkey vultures, pigeons, wild turkeys, peacocks and peahens, and macaws, amazons, cockatiels and more. Once again, how they came to be here covers a wide variety of reasons - some were pets, some were going to be dinner, some were injured and are flightless, some purchased as "ornamentals", but found to be unsuitable, some were "gifts" and so on. The list why birds and animals came to be here is almost endless; the reasons why they were originally obtained was often simple thoughtlessness.

Melissa and Rocky, a bonded domesticated duck and a Bantam roosterWe've given all of our birds the best life we can, and hope you'll read more about each one in the Wildlife Club section of this site, where all are available for sponsorship.

Above is Pierre the Peacock, purchased and then unwanted due to his loud cries. At right, is the Odd Couple, Melissa the duck and her fierce protector, Rocky the Bantam rooster. Read more about them in the Wildlife Club!
