We will coordinate flight times with our customer a few days in advance before the bird is being shipped (weather permitting). The customer is supplied with the airline, flight number(s), air waybill/tracking number, and flight arrival time prior to departure. It is recommended that the customer arrive at the airport no later than the expected flight arrival time so that your bird is not waiting at the airport for any length of time.
We will contact our customer once again on the day of shipment before the bird departure our aviary. A return call, text or e-mail to JC aviary letting us know that the bird(s) arrived safely is greatly appreciated.
All sales are final when the birds are shipped. There are no returning the birds. We have a 24 hour limit of notification, after deliver of the birds, of any death at the point of delivery, specified on the order. Immediate inspection is necessary to insure damage didn't occur during shipping and the birds are alive at delivery. We will replace the dead bird or refund the cost of the bird one time, but not the shipping cost.
Shipping charges generally range between $185 – $275 nationwide.
Any bird that leaves our aviary must be paid in full before the bird is shipped.
We offer shipping within the U.S. We do NOT offer international shipping to any other country.

When you get home, put your bird in the cage and let him/her be. He/She needs time to adjust to his/her surroundings. No matter how cute he/she is, how much you want to show him/her off, or how much the kids want to have him/her perch on their fingers, let your bird be.
Give him/her a day of peace to adjust. Offer him/her water, fruits/veggies along with pellets/seed mix as soon you get home.
