Reserving a bird:
To reserve a bird, a non-refundable deposit is required. A deposit will guarantee you a bird and must be picked up on an agreeable date. Small birds such as Quakers, Sun Conures, or Green Cheeks require a $300+ deposit. Large birds such as African Greys, Amazons, Cockatoos, Pionus, or Macaws require a $2500+ deposit. In addition, rare species or mutations such as Hyacinth Macaw, Black Palm Cockatoo, Blue Eclectus (mutation), or Major Mitchell Cockatoos will require a 50% deposit.
All deposits are non-refundable & non-transferable.
When your bird is reserved with a deposit, we will update you with pictures on our Instagram/Facebook as your baby grows as much as possible. Please contact us by phone to reserve your baby and/or confirm availability. Please call us if you have any questions.
We accept cash, PayPal, Zelle, checks, money orders, or direct deposits. Any transaction fees incurred will be added to the TOTAL sales price. If paying via check or money order, please give us 3-5 business days for the check to clear out before a bird can be released to a customer. We do NOT sell unweaned babies via PayPal.
Prices of birds are subject to change depending on season and availability.
All our babies (weaned or un-weaned) are DISEASE TESTED negative for Polyomavirus (PVD), Avian Borna virus (ABV), Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD), and Chlamydia psittaci. We provide paperwork with every bird we sell.
We guarantee that there are no symptoms of disease or parasites at the time of sale and that our birds are completely healthy. This means our birds are free of viral infections, pathogenic bacterial infections, fungal infections, and congenital defects. When a customer purchases a bird(s) from us, we provide our customers with 7 days of health guarantee on birds that are weaned (eating on their own). Within the first 7 days of the purchase, customers are encouraged to take the bird(s) to an avian veterinarian. If an avian veterinarian states that the bird was Unfit for sale (not healthy), a certificate/paperwork must be presented to JC aviary within 24 hours of the exam for exchange or full refund of the bird(s).
In addition, any bird(s) taken and hand-fed by customers are not qualified for any guarantee. There are no refund(s), exchanges, or another free bird(s) if a customer is unable to take care of an unweaned bird(s).
If the buyer fails to have the bird(s) examined by an avian veterinarian within a 7-day period after pickup or delivery, then the buyer understands and agrees that the sale is final and there is no guarantee/refund on the bird(s) anymore. All bird(s) are sold AS IS. Re-home bird(s) is/are sold AS IS.
JC Aviary is not responsible for any vet fees. All bird(s) should be quarantined.
DNA sexing: $40 per bird.
Supplies (e.g. food, cages, playgyms, toys, etc.) are non-refundable.
Nail & Wing Trimming:
Nail & Wing trimming service is provided by appointment only. Please call or email us to schedule an appointment.
Additionally, we trim a bird's nails and wings prior to him/her going to their new home for free. Each one of our babies is allowed to fledge naturally and fly repeatedly prior to receiving their first wing trimming. If a customer prefers to not have their bird's wings trimmed, they must let us know at the time of leaving a non-refundable deposit.
Local Pickup Policy:
Please bring cash with you on the day of pick up.
We must reserve time for everyday aviary maintenance. As a result, all customers must call or email us the day before the pick-up date to schedule an appointment with us. With our busy schedule, our pick-up date could change (very rarely). Therefore, a customer must set up an appointment with us a day in advance to confirm our meeting schedule for the next day.
Purchases made within the state of Texas will be charged with sales tax.
We take care of all the flight/shipping arrangements. All you have to do is to pick up your bird at your nearest airport with a Valid I.D. Simple and Safe!
We will coordinate flight times with our customers a few days in advance before the bird is shipped (weather permitting). The customer is supplied with the airline, flight number(s), air waybill number, and flight arrival time prior to departure. It is recommended that the customer arrives 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's departure from 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 birds. We have a 24-hour limit of notification, after delivery of the birds, of any death at the point of delivery, specified on the order. Immediate inspection is necessary to ensure 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 $185 & up nationwide + airline-approved shipping crate ($65 - $125)
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.
