Birds once purchased are not returnable except
under the conditions set out in the Health Guarantee
Breeder Health Guarantee:
Unless otherwise stated, all birds come
with a 72-hour limited health guarantee. If
your avian veterinarian performs a health examination
within the allotted time period [72 hours] and
discovers a problem too costly to cure, or a
problem that cannot be cured, we will, at our
discretion, replace the bird with one of the
same kind or value, or buy the bird back. We
reserve the right to obtain a second opinion
at our expense.
The breeder health guarantee is valid when you
have the bird examined within the allotted time
(72-hours) and, in addition, notify us immediately
of any changes in the birds' health. Failure
to adhere to these requirements indicates you
have purchased the bird "as-is", and
waive any warranties of health or fitness.
We ship weaned babies only! A weaned bird
is one who can fill their own crop for a minimum
of two weeks and maintain a reasonable weight,
prior to going to their new home. We ship by
major airlines on a live animal priority basis.
The birds are transported in special facilities
with the same pressure and temperature as the
passenger cabin. We ship year-round, limited
by severe weather conditions, or requirements
specific to the airline or the receiving airport,
or when it might be unsafe to ship the bird.
Airfreight charges vary from one airline to
another but generally are around $75 - $200 nationwide.
(The distance is not the deciding factor. It
is based on the dimensional weight of the shipping
crate and declared value of the birds). We ship
counter to counter. We always notify the buyer
with the flight number, airbill number and arrival
time before shipment is made.
Health Certificates: Health
certificates may be required for certain states
and/or airlines. Avian Adventures Aviary will
provide these certificates for an additional
charge. Carriers are typically kennel carriers
reinforced to prevent accidental escape. These
are yours to keep for future use. Carriers cost $120 and are customized with a perch and food cups.
Veterinary Tests - Your baby bird
can be examined by an avian veterinarian and
have testing done, prior to shipping. The exam
is an additional cost, and includes an office
visit, CBC blood panel, and chlamydia and beak
and feather tests. A months' prior notice is
required, so results are available prior to
the date of shipping.
DNA Test for Sexing - This test will be performed
for an additional charge prior to shipping.
A months' prior notice is required to ensure
the results are available prior to the shipping
date. DNA sexing fee is $50
