My home delivery service is offered every two weeks.
Twice each month I ship my babies. Delivery to your
will normally be on a Tuesday or Wednesday. I will
contact you in advance so that you can be home to accept
your delivery. We ask all customers to be available for
delivery on both the expected delivery day and also the
next day. If a baby misses a connection or flight and is
delayed it can result in a delay. This is very rare and
happens maybe 4 out of every 100 times. Each baby is
supplied with lots of water and food for the trip and
has enough to last several days in case of an emergency.
Frequently Asked Questions &
Q - How often do you offer local
A - About very two weeks. If the baby is not
ready to go and needs a couple of extra days or if
weather issues come up, I then sometimes will reschedule
deliveries for a few days or a week later so that
customers do not have to wait a full two weeks for my
next scheduled delivery dates.
Q - Is it safe?
A - Yes, I believe it is very safe, I have never
had any issues as of date with the service. Each baby
has arrived healthy and safe. Keep in mind that many
birds are shipped in the same way everyday to countries
outside of the United States, that process can take 2 to
7 days in some cases and the babies arrive safe and
healthy. I personally do not offer
export services outside of the USA because I dont want
my babies traveling for 5 to 7 days, But I do use the
same process for deliveries in the USA because it is
very fast and in most cases only takes about 10 to 14
hours. I am confident this is
a safe way of delivery.
Q - Can it be delayed? What about Weather Issues?
A - Yes as with all delivery services anything
can happen to cause a delay. human error, weather issues a missed
connection or flight can cause a delay. Not to worry, It
is very rare that this happens and the baby is normally
only delayed a few hours or at the most one day. The
babies are set up to remain nourished for up to
one week in case of any emergencies.
In order to ship or deliver the local temperature
needs to be no lower than 40°
on delivery day.
If your local temperature
is lower than 40°
on delivery day
we will work together and schedule delivery for the next
weekday that meets the
Delivery companies have different policies for
summer months. Generally they require the outside local
temperature to be below 92°.
Please understand that we may have to reschedule if the
temperature becomes an issue.

Q- What if no one is home or I
know in advance that I will not be home for the
A - If you know
in advance that you will not be home or may not
be home - Let me know in advance. I can request
my delivery guy to schedule your baby to be held at a
local climate controlled business or post office. When
you are available or as soon as you get off of work you
simply stop by and pick up the baby on your way home.
This service does not cost any extra, but I need to know
If you believe we need to make these
Email me or call
Q- Do you offer weekend local
A - No not normally, Many businesses close early on Saturdays
or are closed on Sunday. If in the rare event the baby
misses a flight or has a delay I do not want the
delivery process held up because it may fall out of
business hours. Even though my babies are set up with a
weeks worth of food and water I do not take any
unnecessary chances with weekend deliveries. If you are
not able to accept delivery during the week let me know
in advance and we can have your baby held at a
local drop off location in climate control until you are
available or until you get off work.
Q- Do you guarantee live
A - Yes, I have never had any babies experience
health issues as a result of delivery or shipping. I
have also spoken with several colleges who have used the
service for years and as of date they have never
experienced any deaths as a result of delivery service.
I love my babies and would not expose them to any
service that did not have my confidence.
Q - Are your babies guaranteed?
A - Yes, I offer the very best bird breeder
guarantee available. Do not forget to read my sales
contract and health guarantee
Q - Will we know the exact
delivery time or tracking information?
A - No, The service is set up so that each baby
should be delivered by 4pm. However in most cases and
based on customer feedback - The babies are normally
delivered between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. If you
need exact times I would suggest having us schedule the
baby to be taken from the airport to the local post
office or shipping office in your city and then you can
pick the baby up at your
convenience after they call you. This works very well
for people who do not want to take the day off from work
to wait at home for delivery.
Q - Do you use the same delivery
service for each delivery?
A - No, depending on what state and city you live
in, my delivery guy will schedule with someone local. In
areas where there is no local delivery service available
he will schedule for the baby to be sent directly from
the airport to the local post office for pickup or
delivery to your home. Because of these different
options he is able to offer us delivery to almost every
place in the USA.
Q - Does the process cause
stress for the baby?
A - Very little, Unlike dogs
and cats the baby birds are already used to be being in
small playpen boxes. I have prepared my babies for
delivery since they first opened their eyes. I believe
that as a result my babies experience very little stress
during the delivery process. So putting them in the
travel compartment is not much different to what they
were raised in and already used to everyday. I supply
lots of food , water, veggies and a small toy
(Toy - when available).
The feedback I receive from customers is great! The
babies seem un-fazed with the travel time and are
normally ready to come out of the box to play or sit on
your finger right away. I do however suggest letting the
baby have a couple of days to get used to its new home
before having a playtime. Each baby has its very own
personality so a few of them may be a little frightened
or scared for the first day or so. Make sure to read my
new bird at home information page
Q - What if my baby has not
arrived and its almost 4pm?
A - In the rare case that
the baby has not arrived do not worry. Sometimes it is a
result of a missed connection or flight along the way.
The babies are supplied with lots of water and food and
in the rare case that this would happen. The baby may be
delivered later in the evening or the following day. I
do like to be updated during the process so please send
me a quick message to let me
know of any delays. At that point I will contact my
delivery guy to let him know and ask him to start
tracking the delivery.
Do not worry, remember that many
birds are shipped in the same way everyday to countries
outside of the United States, that process can take up
to a week in travel time. I personally do not offer
export services but I know and talk to several breeders
who do. I am confident it is a safe way of delivery.
Q - Is there a difference
between local delivery and airport to airport delivery
A - Yes - But both services are same day service
(24 hour). Airport to Airport delivery provides flight
numbers, arrivals times and tracking information. Home
delivery is exactly the same as far as how the baby
travels but 3rd party companies take care of scheduling,
tracking and delivery and because of the logistics
involved we are not supplied with the same kind of
tracking information as airport to airport delivery
This page covers local delivery service for Airport to
Airport delivery information -
Q - What do you charge for local
delivery services and how are you able to offer it for
the cost that you do?
A - I have been asked this question a few times.
Right now local delivery is the most popular service. The
normal delivery cost including delivery box is around
$79. The overall actual cost to me is about $100, however I have
not passed that cost onto my customers. I have a
business friend that I use for my home delivery
services. He takes care of everything such as, Picking
up the baby from my house, ordering the putting together
all of the delivery boxes. Scheduling each delivery
according to what state and city the baby is going to
and also takes pre-delivery photos of each baby prior to
delivery. He then takes each baby to the delivery drop
off location and emails me daily updates. I pay him a
set price for each baby based on what the the average
delivery cost is including all of his services, time and
labor. Because I use him for all of my local deliveries I
am able to pay only about $95 for each bird. Keep in
mind that he incurs different prices depending on where
the baby is being sent. For example his actual delivery
cost in one area may only be $40 or $50 dollars and then
in another area it could be as high as $200 dollars. The
price he charges me is based on what he calls his
national average. I pay him $95 per bird, but I only
charge my customers about $79 total for this service.
Q - What is the difference
between local delivery and the free delivery service or
discounted delivery specials I
sometimes see posted on your website?
A - None, there is no difference. It is the same
service overall. All delivery services such as United
Airlines, Delta, Post Office, FedEx and others use the
same exact flights in most cases. Sometimes I will put a few limited babies on special and offer free
or discounted delivery prices. it is
the same service you have been reading about here on
this page. The only difference is I cover the cost out
of my pocket for these very limited specials.
Q - If delivery is late or
delayed do I get a shipping refund?
A - No, Delays are very rare but have to be
expected to happen from time to time. Because of this we
advise all customers to make themselves available both
the day of expected delivery and the day after.
Q - If I order more than one
bird will it cost me more for delivery?
A - No, I can comfortably ship 2 to 3 babies
together in the same delivery box with no issues.
Because of this I do not charge my customers any extra.
If you place an order for a second baby prior to your
first babies delivery let me know and you will not be
charged any extra delivery fees.
Q - Who is the person you use to
take care of and set up your deliveries?
A - That is an ancient Chinese secret
I do get asked this question sometimes and because this
is a competitive industry I do not give out my little
secrets. However, rest assured the person who takes care
of all my deliveries is also a personal friend of mine
and I have great confidence in what he does. It is not
an easy task.
Here is a list of a few things I am thankful of that he
does for the price I am charged.
* Prepays for everything.
* Orders and picks up all of the shipping boxes.
* Goes out and purchases all the supplies.
example - Food, millet, water dishes, toys, clear
packing tape, black gorilla tape, printer ink, paper,
zip ties & more.
* Assembles the shipping boxes.
* Attaches and glues in all of the HEPA air filters.
* Cuts out the drinking container lid.
* Glues the drinking container to the bottom of the box
so that it does not tip over.
* Picks the babies up from my home the night before your
* Schedules the delivery with the different companies.
* Adds a weeks worth of food water and veggies along
with a small toy when available to each box.
* Records the weight of each baby prior to shipping
* Takes a photo of the delivery box and the baby prior
* Takes the babies to the drop of locations.
* Tracks the delivery and keeps me notified.
* Invoices me separately for each baby and includes a
receipt of delivery for each baby.
A lot of logistics is involved in order to assure a
quick and safe delivery. So if my delivery guy is
reading this page I want to personally thank him for all
of the good hard work you have done to assure my little
guys are delivered safe. Thank you!

Local Delivery Program
The program has the following features:
- Babies travel within specially designed shipping boxes and
are put in
specially designed plane compartments that are pressurized
in the same way as passenger cabins. Total delivery time
averages 18-36 hours.
- On the ground, most warehouse & facilities are
climate-controlled for the safety of your baby. To ensure
comfort in any weather conditions, pets are generally the last
cargo loaded and the first cargo unloaded from the plane.
- Birds receive personal handling from the service
companies that we use. - Different companies are used
depending on your area.
- All babies travel with enough food and water for at
least 6 days just incase of any emergencies or
- These babies are used to warm temperatures that average
about 90 to 93 degrees. However, most facilities are
climate-controlled and kept around 78 to 80 degrees. Being
tropical birds the warmer temperatures are comfortable to
the babies. In the winter months I can include a small
disposable heater in each delivery box to keep your baby
nice and warm during the trip to your home.
I ship twice each month - Every two weeks
Shipping dates are not guaranteed because the airlines &
courier service companies are not
always able to get all of my babies booked for the dates I
request or need. I will send the delivery information as
soon as I have it confirmed. My
requested days for home delivery is Tuesday or Wednesday.
