About Us

Our aim is not only to supply hand reared companion birds and parent raised aviary birds to our customers but also to educate the purchaser on what their specific bird will need to keep it a contented and healthy bird.

Shop has been open for 12 years, owned by us since 2009 and is located in Fourways, Gauteng.

In 2011 we made the decision to expand the business and open a top class tropical fish and koi section.

We have a reputation of supplying healthy disease free birds and if we do not have the bird you are looking for we will gladly try and source it for you.

We also offer a boarding service for when you go away on holiday or business.

Need your birds wings and toe-nails clipped? We will gladly help you.

Shop hours Monday to Friday: 09h00 - 17h00
Saturday: 09h00 - 16h00
Sunday: 9h00 - 14h00

Arlette de Jager

My interest in birds began 9 years ago when my son bought his first Conure. From there it developed into a passion and I have acquired many birds of my own, some rescued, some unwanted, some bought.

I have completed a "Companion Bird Behaviour Course" through the Ethology Academy. This covers all aspects of bird behaviour, encompassing advice, solutions to help maintain healthy contented companion birds.

Brett has extensive knowledge on tropical fish and koi, and can offer advice about the food and all related accessories.
He can also pass on his knowledge about what it involves to own a companion parrot. Friendly and willing to help.
