Birds For Sale

Birds available for sale to the public will be offered occasionally through www.showbirdauction.com, many with fixed prices, and some for auction. Due to the extreme summer temperatures in Redding, California (over 100 degrees!), there may be shipping delay considerations. Private viewing and sales by appointment only, and applies to sold birds being picked up after purchase at this time. Maintaining bio secure environmental goals of disease prevention is a primary concern. I do not vaccinate or medicate adult birds. Although chicks are fed medicated purina chick starter until after they are on the ground to promote cocci soil bacteria immunity development.
