We are Muriel and Keith Barnes and live near Norwich, Norfolk, U.K.

We have kept birds for approx 30 years. Our cuddly tame baby birds are hand-reared (spoon-fed) in our home, with lots of tender loving care, from just a few days old. In some circumstances (emergency only!) the babies are hand reared from the egg and do not have any fear of humans. Most of our breeding pairs are the result of rescuing birds "in need" over the last 20 years. In most cases we keep only the one pair of each specie. Some of the chicks are hand-reared & sold in order to pay the upkeep of everyone.

Please note that we cannot take in any more rescue birds at the moment. Also we do not accommodate birds for holiday boarding.

All our birds are closed rung and come with a small bag food (if required), Hatch Certificate & Info/Diet Sheet.  I will e-mail photos of baby to new owners occasionally so they can follow their bird's progress. We are always available for any "after sales" questions/information.

The following is a selection of our babies, please contact us (details below) for availability, as different species have different breeding seasons & some don't produce babies every season.

  • Cinnamon Greencheeked Conures
  • Crimson Bellied Conures
  • Pineapple Greencheeked Conures
  • Black Capped Conures
  • Cockatiels
