Laura’s Little Parrots is family owned and operated, specializing in companion Pacific Parrotlets and Green-Cheek Conures of many different colors in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. We are among one of the first breeders to offer the Turquoise Pastel (now marbled) Parrotlets! Specializing not only in "hand-fed" but "Hand-Tame" baby birds that are suitable for smaller homes, where loud noises or lack of space can be an issue. We have been breeding Pacific Parrotlets and Green Cheek Conures since 2009 and strive for beautiful companions with great temperament! Also introduced in 2017 are the Caiques and Cockatiels.
We have had experience with all types of birds over the past 20 years ... from finches and parakeets to cockatiels and conures. Now we want to give families the opportunities to develop the same memorable experiences as all of us have daily with their new feathered family member!
Laura's Little Parrots not only breeds more rare colors but also the popular mutations as well. We like to have a variety so everyone can find the baby bird they are looking for. We also breed for good temperament, happiness, health and take special care when trying to produce the hard-to-find mutations. We do not breed any related birds to one another to produce any of the mutations, and research every new bird's background such as their previous owner and possible genetics. We also feed all our birds the best and treat them like family so we have beautiful and happy babies. Each baby is handled daily to ensure sweet little companions. Our home is the closed "aviary" and this helps prevent any diseases from entering their environment. Any new additions are quarantined. We also test our aviary yearly through Avian Biotech for PBFD and Polynoma for preventative and results have been negative!
We guarantee all babies that they will be free from any pre-existing Illness upon examination. If you’re baby is sick within 7 days, we will replace upon availability. We recommend your baby seeing an avian veterinarian within this time frame and must see one within the allotted time frame to qualify for this guarantee. Shipping must be paid by buyer if needed.
Your baby is not working out or species is not what expected and it’s been a month? Can switch out for another, when we have more available and within driving distance.
We work with each baby to begin teaching him or her to "Step-Up" and give kisses. Some learn recall training and will come back to you with a wave of your hand. Every baby will differ based on how quickly they learn and we recommend continuing to train when they are at their new homes. Our babies are pulled at about 2 weeks old, depending on the species to begin handfeeding and are around dogs, cats, other birds, kids, vacuums and many other distractions to get your new baby used to just about everything so they will have a smooth transition into their new forever home.
Shipping United Petsafe is not available at this time. Please see their website for more information and when they will ship again...
Shipping is available out of DFW Airport for $165 through Delta Pets First, which will include a small pet crate plus everything the baby needs for the flight. Available to customers anywhere in the United States, including Alaska. We only ship through the airlines and will give you everything needed to track flights and pick-up your new baby from the airport.
Each baby will be banded with a leg band that has a unique id number, year of hatch, our abbreviation (LLP), state of hatch (TX) and AFA (American Federation of Aviculture) logo. Color varies with each species or year. This identifies the new baby to keep track of the lineage. Any baby with this logo is traceable back to the original breeder if they contact the AFA directly. We are also members of the NCS (National Cockatiel Society).
All species of birds, except Parrotlets (unless otherwise specified), will come with a paper DNA Certificate, Hatch Certificate and a "New Baby" form and a bag of current food to help get started! A JPG formatted Hatch Certificate can also be requested but please allow a few days to e-mail to you.
