Notice: Due to health reasons we must down-size significantly. Arizona Parrots has been training parrots for many years. . We began by with only Cockatiels in Tucson and by carefully planning over many years we have produced some of the finest African Grey, Sun Conure, and Cockatiel babies that can be found.
During the first years we found individual birds that could be paired to make quality breeding pairs. In particular, the summer of 2012 was the year that we did several cage upgrades and modifications for our bird collection. We built a more efficient suspended caging system to improve the care for the birds.
The cages are placed in a long row with a secure access aisle to safely get to the birds with no risk of birds getting loose. A quick note here, birds set free may sound fair to some people but the dry desert environment and native hawks would soon kill them. These parrot breeding aisle allows us to keep the nest box area quiet and dark, so that we are able to check the nest boxes with minimal disturbance to the babies.
The misting and irrigation system consists of two irrigation timing clocks to turn the water on at selected times so the 120 trees (each with two or three drip emitters) can be supplied with the water they need to survive in the hot, arid summers in Arizona. The misting system consists of over 90 misting emitters to increase the humidity for birds to thrive in the dry desert climate. The water bowl systems turn on three times a day to refill and flush each water bowl with fresh clean water. The air feels like a waterfall is nearby when the misting is in operation.
