The health of the bird is guaranteed for 3 days through examination by an AVIAN CERTIFIED veterinarian at the discretion and expense of the buyer. If the bird is found to be of unsatisfactory health and written documentation from a licensed, AVIAN CERTIFIED veterinarian is presented, the buyer will immediately deliver the bird to the breeder and receive a full refund of the purchase price of the bird. This documentation must include band number and species. The breeder will not be responsible for any expenses incurred by the buyer during this time or for costs to return the bird to the breeder.
In the unlikely event of death within twelve (12) days of the buyer taking possession, the bird must be wrapped in paper towels, placed in a plastic bag, and refrigerated, (not frozen), until a necropsy can be performed, by a qualified, licensed Avian Veterinarian within seventy-two hours after death. All reports must be sent to our veterinarian, and include band number and species. If necropsy proves beyond doubt, that death occurred from problems originating prior to the sale a replacement baby will be offered from the next available clutch of the original species. The cost of the necropsy will be provided to the buyer. The breeder will not be responsible for any other expenses and takes no responsibility for problems occurring in other birds, as per clause 3(a), the bird must be quarantined and it is the buyer’s responsibility to do so.
Guarantee is void if all the following requirements are not followed:
- The bird must be quarantined away from all other birds and an examination by an Avian Certified Veterinarian must be done within 24 hours after possession.
- If you currently have other birds or have had birds in the same environment within the past year, you must provide documentation of their health and past medical history. The reasoning for this is that many viruses can stay in the environment for many months after an infected bird is removed.
Weaning a baby bird
A weaned bird is one who can fill his/her own crop for a minimum of two weeks and maintain a reasonable weight prior to going to its new home. We will only sell weaned babies.
