"Joe at JC Aviary is phenomenal! From start to finish, he made himself readily accessible to me for the millions of inquiries/questions I had. 

Izzy (Blue & Gold Macaw) is a wonderful addition to our family! We just got her yesterday and we absolutely love her! We had a great experience.

Thank you Joe!"

Sherri Werner 


"We ordered a Turquoise Green Cheek Conure from Joe. She came from Texas to Greenville SC. The transaction was WONDERFUL. He answered every question and then some before I bought her. And he picked her out for me from a clutch. She was 100% tame. And SWEET as can be from day one. She is healthy and absolutely gorgeous. We could not be any happier with JC Aviary. Such a pleasure, and so easy to do business with. Needless to say you can not go wrong buying a bird from Joe. "

"Hello everyone. I would like to formally thank JC aviary for giving me the opportunity to add a new baby macaw to my house. I was looking for a specific baby hybrid and they did keep me updated the moment the baby was born. They are very professional aviary and provided me with all paperwork. They will answer any questions you have very fast.While they were still raising the baby, the vet checked on the baby a few times to make sure everything looks great. I have big birds experience and I really can tell they provide their birds an excellent diet and this is very important to have a healthy baby birds. My (yellow-dominant) Camelot macaw was shipped all the way from Texas to Ohio safely. I am looking forward to add more birds and Joe is someone you can trust."

Dejae Starkey - Evansville, IN


"The absolute best experience from beginning to end. We re-homed a beautifully baby Blue and Gold Macaw and he has been nothing shy of perfect will recommend time and time again!"

Holly Jenkins - Evansville, IN


"Overall had a wonderful experience working with Joe. He answered any and all questions I had within a timely manner, and seems very knowledgeable about these wonderful birds.
The crate our baby came in (he was shipped to us) was very durable, had bedding in it as well as plenty of food for his trip. He came right out when my boyfriend and I opened it up, and immediately was all over us. He’s so sweet and always wants attention!

I’m definitely considering future purchases from JC Aviary, and would highly recommend them to anyone else looking for a feathered friend!"

Danielle De Garnica - El Paso, Texas


"I just started the process of adopting a baby Yellow Nape Amazon. Joe is extremely patient with me and my bazillion questions & emails . His rapid response time is greatly appreciated and shows a very caring attitude.

I look forward to the next steps in what should be a great experience with JC Aviary."

Drew Groth - Fairbanks, Alaska


"We recently added a green cheek conure (turquoise/cinnamon) to our flock and after lots of research, decided to purchase from JCAviary. We were not disappointed! The customer service and communication were excellent! It is really obvious that the owner cares about every single bird he sells. Our bird arrived on a Delta Arline’s flight in the most amazing box filled with food and bedding. She was very safe and cozy during her travels! She is a happy and healthy bird and already steps up perfectly because she was so well socialized! I highly recommend JCAviary!"

Larry & Sue L - Courtland, MN


"Over the years we always purchased our pet birds from local pet stores. Most of the times the birds were scared of us and took a long time to train if we could train them at all. We kinda gave up trying to purchase a pet bird. Then we met Joe at JC Aviary.  He was helpful and kind.  We reserved our baby green cheek and he arrived just as Joe said.  He popped right out of his cage the next morning after arriving and adjusted pretty quick!  He loves to be touched and was finger trained when he arrived. He snuggles right into your hand and asks to be scratched on his head. Now he loves having breakfast and playing for a while.  Then it's time for his shower, which he loves!!  He just fit right in! He's he bird we always wanted but couldn't seem to find.  Thanks Joe and staff!!

"I got a Female Sun Conure from Joe and she is wonderful. She is super sweet and kind. I named her Ginger! Ginger gives both me and my mom lots of kisses and never wants to stop. She was tame and interested as soon as I picked her up at the airport. It took a few days for her to warm up to me, but that is understandable :) Joe was great and very helpful. I asked him A LOT of questions and Joe always responded quickly and in detail. He also knows what he is talking about and gave helpful advice for me as a first time bird owner. Also, Ginger is in great health. She eats and drinks and loves her fruits and veggies. JC Aviary did a great job raising the bird I now have. The next bird I get will be from them!!!! 

Thank you JC Aviary!!

Valeria Araujo - Denver, CO


"I got my adorable pineapple green cheek conure from Joe and she is the absolute sweetest! Joe was great about replying to my emails promptly, and made sure that my baby arrived to my nearest airport safe and sound. She is healthy and doing very well, and it’s so awesome that Joe appreciates all the little updates on how she’s doing. JC aviary is the best!"

Wanda L Ortiz - Albuquerque, NM


"I would highly recommend purchasing your new feathered baby from JC Aviary. Joe is very good at answering any question you might have in a timely manner. He is there for you if you have any questions about owning a bird, to the moment you decide to purchase, and he even answers questions you might still have after you've received your bird. Rico, my Sun Conure, had arrived in a new crate prepared perfectly for the journey from Austin to Albuquerque. He was healthy and it was obvious he had been hand raised. Rico was very friendly and playful from the moment I took him out of his crate. Have no doubt that you will receive everything that was promised on their website."

Debbie Lynn Collier - Texas


"A ‘5 Star’ rating is a such an understatement for Joe, and JC Aviary.... I’m so impressed with their knowledge, business ethics, and their undeniable love for the birds. You can’t go wrong with JC Aviary."

Danielle Nicol Bartlett - Memphis, TN


"Buying a bird from Joe has been a fantastic experience. The health and safety of the birds is his number 1 priority. Our sun conure arrived in clean/comfortable crate with plenty of food and treats for the trip. Joe has been responsive to all of our many questions (this is our first bird) since "Frito" arrived. I cannot say enough positive things about Joe, 5 stars all around."

Chloe Aiani - Denver, CO


"Joe Coman was wonderful to work with. He was prompt, diligent, and thorough in answering all of the questions I asked over the months of our contact, which began back in September. Communicating around reserving a baby was easy and straightforward, and my baby girl (a Camelot macaw) was delivered safe, sound, and beautifully socialized this April.

It's clear to me that Joe cares deeply about the babies he raises and that sending them to educated and committed owners is a priority for him. His continued interest in my baby's physical and emotional well-being after her delivery shows a sincere love for these beautiful, special creatures. I couldn't be happier with the experience."

Michelle Rose - Columbus, OH


"Just wanted to stop by an express my gratitude for JC Aviary for giving us the opportunity to bring a new feathered member to our family. I did extensive research and could not be more happy with our experience. Once we picked out our bird, I got in contact with Joe and discussed our options. Being out of state, I was extremely concerned/nervous for our investment and health of the bird as we would never see the bird in person before we purchased or even the facility. Joe was very reassuring, provided weekly and bi-weekly updates and videos as well as information on what we needed to do to be prepared. Joe always answered my questions quickly. When it came time for my bird to ship, Joe continued with great communication, even late in the evening. My baby arrived healthy, happy and extremely well socialized. His commitment to raising quality, healthy, pets definitely shows. I would highly recommend JC Aviary. Maybe someday will have the pleasure of doing business again! Thanks Joe!"

Jess Loren 


"We love our new baby Sun Conure. She is the cutest sweetest little thing ever! We decided to name her Maya (we already have a Pineapple Conure named Mango). I would definitely recommend JC Aviary if you are wanting a super sweet baby bird. We are very happy with our “little cutie head” (what my kids call her haha). Cute cute cutie head! Thank you for raising such sweet healthy bird babies."

Gilda-Lee Hitchcock Standish - Albany, NY


"WOW is the word I would describe dealing with Joe and the team at JC Aviary! I purchased an African grey Congo earlier this year and I can state the entire process from my first contact through the shipment of my baby was amazing! Joe actually cares & responded to each one of my inquiries before and after I received my baby. Gizmo is so SWEET which I can attest is due to the attention JC Aviary gives to EACH of their babies! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them & should I ever decide to bring another bird into my home, Joe would be the first person I call! Thank you #jcaviary!"

Shaheena Lofthus- Hutto, TX


I would definitely get more birds from JC Aviary. I had terrible experiences in the past where I’d get pets from the pet store or other breeders and the babies would be very sick.

So when I opted in working with JC Aviary to take home a baby, I was very paranoid about the process and often bombarded Joe with questions. I’m so glad that he was patient and took excellent care of the birds. The baby I took home was completely healthy and socialized, and already knew the step up command.

My little Sun Conure is now my little best friend, and me and her are inseparable. I am so pleased with the cooperation Joe had with me and how consistent he was with updating not just me, but everyone on the birds he was caring for on social media.

When I took my little girl, Niji, to the vet myself, the vet praised the care she had when she was with Joe. I think this speaks volumes on the care and passion JC Aviary has for birds and finding them good forever homes.

When I plan to get a new member of the flock for Niji, I know I can rely on Joe and his service again. This time, with less suspicion and full trust.

Thank you!."

Sena Blickenstaff- Spokane, WA


"We just received our baby girl, African Grey from JC Aviary. It is very apparent that she has been extremely well hand raised and socialized. She is transitioning in to her new home with us very nicely."

Stephanie S. Michaud - Minnesota


"QUALITY breeders. They take time to socialize all babies well to be good human companions. We’re thrilled with our guy!"

Alicia Josephine - San Antonio, TX


"My sweet beauty (male Indian ringneck) came from JC Aviary; he hatched in February 2016. He began talking clearly around 11 months and now says over 50 words and phrases beautifully. He is an absolute sweetie pie and is almost always by my side. I love him so; he is my joy ."

Greg Rowe - Las Vegas, NV


"Decided to purchase a baby sun conure and found Joe and JC Aviary. From our first phone call to our texting back and forth on the purchase - Joe was very responsive and we could tell he is an expert and very caring aviary. Our baby sun conure now named Cleo arrived with perfection.

Joe send us the flight (from Texas to Nevada) itinerary and all the tracking details. The wooden crate in which Cleo arrived was sturdy and strong and adorable at the same time and even had windows in it. It was padded for Cleo and had two area with food as well. Joe even took the time to include packages of food and fresh fruit for Cleo’s journey. He also included a wonderful packet with the birth and health certificate, along with instructions and helpful tips in taking care of our conure. The whole experience was terrific and would call Joe again in a heartbeat if we decide to purchase any additional birds. Cleo is now a happy, sweet and very affectionate and well adjusted bird — thank you Joe!"

Sam Wine - Rhode Island


"I just got my White Belly Caique on Saturday. I call him Yugi. Joe did a excellent job raising him. Yugi already knows the commands up and down and he a very friendly and quite bird until it want to go bed then I just cover him up and he quites right down. Thank you for taking such good care of Yugi."

Andrew Bieniewski - Long Beach, CA


"We have a Slender Bill Cockatoo and a Rose Breasted Cockatoo from JC Aviary. They are the sweetest birds. You can really tell they were raised with love. They are well adjusted and very sociable. Joe always responds to questions right away and really cares about their well being.

If we decide to add another bird to our flock it will definitely be from Joe. He also provides documentation showing the birds have have been to the vet and received a clean bill of health which is very reassuring especially if you have other birds at home. If you are looking for a pet bird this is definitely the place to go."

Kristopher Kassner - Taylor, TX


"They have the best babies. My wife and I both got babies from JC Aviary and they are the most precious and kind birds. I got a Catalina macaw and my wife got a white bellied caique. They are sweet, loving and social birds that want nothing more than to cuddle us to death. We would highly recommend anyone to JC Aviary to anyone looking for an addition to their family."

Diane Guba - Cedar Lake, IN


"Just got my white bellied caique this past week. She is such a sweetheart. Already cuddling and adjusting to her new home. She makes the cutest noises especially when I first get home. Was a little worried about having her shipped, but Joe made all the arrangements and she arrived fine. Would not hesitate to get another bird from Joe."

Robert Wall - New Orleans, LA


"I just received my baby Black headed Caique and she is a sweetheart and very well socialized! I was apprehensive about purchasing out of state and having a baby bird flown in but Joe the owner made sure everything went smoothly and hassle free. Joe supplied everything I needed to know about the baby and was helpful in answering any questions I had. JC Aviary is a top notch breeder and I am very happy I found them. I would definitely purchase from them again.. Thank you Joe!"

Ali Wise - Austin, TX


"I could not have asked for a better experience in working with JC Aviary. Joe was so helpful throughout the entire process. He sent me regular photos and updates on my baby bird and he was knowledgeable and responsive any time I had a question. My Bella is so social and well-adjusted as a result from JC Aviary’s excellent care."

Jennifer Forbes Reno - Austin, TX


"I have a 2 yo Congo African Grey and a Nanday Conure both purchased from JC aviary and my experience was wonderful. Both birds are very friendly, healthy birds. There was always great communication when I asked many questions before buying. I highly recommend JC aviary and plan on adding another bird from them."

Sandra E. - Round Rock, TX


"This was our first time purchasing and owning a Cockatoo. We did lots of research ahead of time and went to visit Joe at JC Aviary to check things out. Joe is really passionate about his birds. He is knowledgeable, caring and concerned with the birds well being. He took time and let us ask all kinds of questions, let us visit with the bird as long as we wanted to. A half hour into it we knew this was the right place, made plans to pick our little girl up the next weekend. Joe showed us how to feed her formula to finish her weaning process, which is the most wonderful experience for us, to hear her little baby noises and coos. She eats great on her own as well. She is sweet and affectionate and a little monkey too. She is settling right in with our 2 chihuahua's, german shepherd and cat, as a matter of fact she already rules the roost! Joe answers our emails with any questions we're had, immediately. Our baby Cockatoo has been a great addition to our family. Thank you so much JC Aviary for the care you put into everything!"

Heather Hope Hanson 


"I just received my beautiful African Grey girl yesterday and she is just amazing! Joe is so patient and responsive, always willing to answer all my questions and really cares about these great babies. Thank you so much, we just love her!!!"

Luci P.


"JC Aviary provided me with a perfect, happy, and healthy little green cheek. These guys really know what their doing! Their birds are well adjusted, socialized, and ready to go to their forever homes and be someone's new best friend. Thank you so much."

Jennifer Hernden


"I bought my Congo African grey baby Cody from JC Aviary and couldn't be more happier. He is the most sweet, gentle, loving cuddly bird I've ever seen. Highly intelligent as he already learned 3 words at 6 months old. Very active, healthy, and all around happy bird. Couldn't be more pleased with the bird and all the help and support from Joe! Thanks again Joe for this amazing bird!!"

Charlie Smith


"That day finally came!! Last Tuesday my baby CAG was finally coming to his forever home. I picked up my baby from the airport, he was shipped in a well-constructed plywood box with wire mesh screens windows, food, water and paperwork (hatch & health certificates, blood testing report, etc) and a thank you card. I recommend paying the $40 and get a DNA test, I did. I got home and opened the box and he climbed right out, stretched and stepped right up onto my finger. I’m glad I waited to see his personality before deciding on a name. I named him Romio, he’s so sweet and tame.

The whole process from initial contact with Joe until the time my baby came home. Joe answered all my questions in a timely manner, provided me with updates, photos and videos.

Romio, in no time at all has adjusted to his new home very well. He’s eating and trying new things everyday; loves kale, brussel sprouts and grapes just to name a few.

Joe, thank you!!!!"

"Once upon a time there was a young girl who longed for a parrot to call her own. This young girl grew up, did much researched and learned it would take a lot of work before she could have this majestic creature. The bird required time, patience, love, expensive cages, food and toys…so she waited until the timing was right, when she could offer her future parrot these things and more.

Finally, in July of 2017 the timing was right. She had done her research and learned about an exemplary aviary in Austin Texas. The reviews were excellent, the parrots were healthy and the breeder had one blue and gold macaw chick left. She contacted the breeder and was received by the most personable, compassionate and passionately enthusiastic bird lover she’d ever met. The breeder was Joe and taught her how to hand feed her new baby macaw and led her step by step through the process of becoming a macaw mom.

The day she met her little feathered bundle of joy was one of the best in her life. This baby was happy, healthy, curious, loving and gentle. It was apparent there was an incredible bond between Joe and the baby bird. Right before the lady took her bird home, Joe hugged the bird goodbye and whispered, “I will miss you.”

The new macaw mom and the breeder exchanged information and pictures as the baby, now called Cozmo or (Cawzy for short) acclimated to his new home and way of life. Cozmo adjusted brilliantly and loved everyone he met. He was never frightened and was praised for his beauty and disposition by everyone, including avian vets. His care in the beginning of his life made him a joyful, inquisitive and pleasant bird.

Cozmo and his bird mom are off to a great start. She adores him, especially Cawzy cuddle time—which is in the evenings when he gets tired and lays on his back upside down in her lap with his little foot in his mouth. They spend their days together playing and learning and, of course eating, Cozmo has a voracious appetite and loves homemade fruit cups. He’s beginning to talk and at six months old can already say I love you, mom-mom, ohh la la, and nighty night.

Joe has been incredible. He raises baby birds because he loves them. This is not a profession for him, this is a calling. He’s the best in the business and does a phenomenal job! I’ve never seen birds more well-adjusted, better-dispositioned, healthier or more cared for. My hat is off to Joe and I thank him from the bottom of my heart for taking such wonderful care of my little guy. Cawzy is not my pet-- he is my family.

"My mother wanted a Green Cheek Conure, but there were no (good) breeders or shops nearby that we were particularly keen on. I came across JC Aviary thanks to some careful online researching. I've adopted animals long distance before, but since I live in Pennsylvania, Texas was a bit of a stretch. I was leery of not being able to check the place out in person. So I was all over the internet, reading reviews and checking sources; I also pestered the staff with frequent calls and texts as I tried to feel the place out. Well, if I ever decide to get another bird from there, that will no longer be necessary, as I knew the moment I picked the conure up from the airport that I made the right decision.

Poncho is a happy, healthy bird with a HUGE personality. He likes music and hanging upside down from the top of his cage. I heard that it wasn't uncommon for birds to refuse food for the first few days in a new home, but I guess those worries were for nothing as well, since he's been eating nonstop. Remarkably I had already picked up the same brand and type of food he was sent with long before his flight.

I also liked the box he came in. It was sturdy and roomy. A couple came in at the same time to pick up a dog shipped from Missouri, and the bird's carrier was actually bigger! From my own experience, JC Aviary's birds are alert and easily adaptable to new surroundings. They are well socialized and definitely worth the money. I'd recommend this place to anybody."

Tori Savelli


"After several months of research for breeders, we found JC Aviary. With all of the amazing reviews, we knew we were in great hands when we purchased our baby parrotlet. When we picked him up he was already socialized and so sweet. Joe was so amazing in providing us all the information we could possibly need in taking care of our baby and answering any questions we had. Our vet even knew about JC Aviary and knew Joe was one of the best breeders around. If you are looking for a reputable breeder that not only cares for the birds, but his clients as well, then you have come to the right place! Thank you so much again to JC Aviary for giving us our beautiful baby!"

Cees Vandiver


"Joe and the folks at JC Aviary are amazing! Not only are their birds beautiful and expertly raised to make great companions, but the level of service really makes you feel like you're a valued customer. They're also one of the only breeders that posts all their available birds—and pricing!!—on their website (so my mind is a little boggled by the amount of questions they get about pricing...)

I had a lot of questions and special requests, and Joe was very friendly and accommodating about all of it. My birds were shipped to me in California in a sturdy crate, and arrived happy and healthy with all their paperwork, care instructions, and some extra food—super impressive. I highly recommend JC Aviary!"

Carol Mclendon


"I received my new Indian ringneck about 2 weeks ago and have been extremely happy with him. I was very impressed with the shipping and quality of the crate in which JC Aviary sent him. I am so happy that I am currently placing a deposit on a Macaw and have every conidence it will be a well raised sweetheart and looking forward to another member of the family. I highly recommend Joe and his business for anyone interested in bird companions."

Annamarie Herrera 


"We bought our male Eclectus, Mojito, from JC Aviary when he was only 3 months old. He's coming in on 5 months now and he's the best pet we could have ever asked for. Joe was so helpful and reliable in the process of buying our baby and making sure we were well prepared to handle and wean him. And he still continues to be available if we have any questions. Our baby Eclectus came to us very well behaved, friendly, and easy to handle. You can tell JC Aviary really cares about their babies. Even when we went to pick up our Eclectus, we could see how well Joe handled him and how much love he gave him. We would most definitely refer to JC Aviary again to buy another baby! Many thanks to Joe and JC Aviary for the special addition to our family!"

Ruby Cunniff 


"We adopted a baby Goffin cockatoo. Joe made the purchase transaction very easy for us, as we lived 6 hours away. We drove down and picked her up and were amazed at how loveable our little cupcake was. We were given all information printed out on what food she was eating and the care that should be given. My vet was highly impressed as well. Anyone looking to adopt a baby bird, jc aviary is the one you should be looking at. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BLESSING US WITH OUR MUCH LOVED CUPCAKE..."

Bailey Brown - Springfield, Missouri


"I purchased a green baby Indian Ringneck from JC Aviary and am so happy with her! Joe was wonderful to communicate with and was very willing to coordinate payment and a convenient shipping date. I was nervous about having my baby shipped, but she arrived healthy and safe, and I was impressed with the care that went into her shipping container. She's about the friendliest/most hand tame IRN baby I have ever met, and it's obvious how much time Joe spends with his babies. Thank you JC Aviary, I will be using you again when it's time for us to add to our family!"

Amy O'Brien - Wernersville, PA


"Extremely pleased with my new Sun Conure, Rigby. Rigby is very social and friendly, eats very well and has eased into our daily routine. Very impressed with the shipping crate, the info sent along and the health of the baby, even the vet was impressed! When I'm ready for my next bird, there is no other aviary I will consider! Thank you!"

Mary MillwardNew Iberia, Louisiana


"We had an amazing experience purchasing our new baby with Jc aviary. They are very knowledgeable and truly care for the well being of their birds. Top notch breeder, we totally recommend them to anyone looking for a healthy, social, friendly bird."

Henry Troche-Smith


"Got our beautiful Cherry Head Conure for JC Aviary. Very professional and even helped us after we were home with her. She is everything to us."

Joemar Villalon 


"I love my Indian Ringneck! She is very sweet even though she's new to me. It's obvious she gotten a lot of human socialization when she was young. She has not accepted me as her new owner but that's okay it will take a little while. JC Aviary provided me a lot of information I will need in taking care of her. Looking forward to owning another bird from them!"

Christiane Duprey - Houston, TX


"We love our sun conure "Pepper". He's just a joy! When we picked him up he was already sweet and potty trained! Totally recommend this place and should we decide to get a buddy for Pepper this is where we'll get the next birdie from. The drive from Houston is absolutely worth it! Xoxo"

Katie Gahagan - Pelham, NY


"We love our half-moon conure! We picked him up from the airport and were very impressed with the carrier and food he was sent with. He came to us well socialized and already loves to cuddle with us. We took him to the vet to make sure he was all good, and she was impressed by his friendly and sweet demeanor as well how not hand shy he is. She also said that he is a very healthy bird. I would use JC Aviary again in a heart beat!"

Dana Dybdal-Hargreaves - San Antonio, TX


"We had a great experience with JC Aviary! Our little Turquoise Green Cheek Conure came to us healthy, happy and very sweet! Joe was always available an answer our many questions, and has done an outstanding job of keeping in touch with us in the past few months since our little Bungie has been home with us. I would highly recommend JC Aviary to anyone looking for a new little birdie friend!"

Nat Hooper 


"Brought home my Turquoise Green Cheek Conure today! Joe was great through the entire process. Through his social media updates and updates through emails I couldn't ask for anything more when purchasing my baby. The quality bird and how friendly she is amazes me. My baby barely knows me and immediately reaches out to me to step up. Very well socialized birds! If your looking for a place to purchase your bird, I highly recommend JC Aviary!

Thank again!


Sherry Seidenberger 


"I got my baby Conure from these guys! They are curtious, professional, and raised a sweet baby for us! Would definitely recommend JC Avairy!"

Ashley Campbell Strong - Idaho


"Where do I start, My name Ashley and I am from a very small town in Idaho. I have had birds my whole life and have been around them since I was just a little girl. When my grandmother passed away it became nearly impossible to find the help I needed for bringing in a new feathered baby in to our home. Since she raised and knew everyone who raised birds. There are wonderful parrot store with in hours of our town but its very hard for these shops to even get hand raised babies in right now. You then are placed on waiting lists. I was so very nervous to even look on line and even more nervous to ship a baby. Then I came across JC Aviary. I sat on it over night before calling and said a little prayer it was the route I was supposed to take. The minute I talked with Joe I felt great about it all. I had already done a lot of research about the Green Cheek Conures and how wonderful they are as a family pet. That being my biggest concern since I have small young children who LOVE birds more then I think I even do. :) Anyways long story short, We received our sweet Yellowsided GCC and What an amazing easy process it was picking her up from the airport. I had never done this so I was extremely nervous but she had the nicest travel box. Filled with lots of food and fresh fruits. All her paperwork and checklists, certificates, and even extra food and feed for her. Our sweet girl is a doll. Tuki is her name and she is so dang sweet and smart. She is not afraid or skitish of loud noises (with having small kids) She is content with all of us and just wants to be apart of all of us already. Im so thankful and so happy I found JC Aviary. My Grandmother would be proud and definitely give me the thumbs up for all Joes hard work with his babies. I really recommend JC Aviary if you are looking for a new feathered family member. :)

Sandra Tipton - Austin, TX


"We visited JC Aviary on January 2 to look at their Eclectus babies, we fell in love with a 4 month old baby, and took him home that day. The owner Joe was so helpful with information about the breed and care for the bird. He checks in regularly to see how our baby is adjusting to his new home, and has been helpful whenever we have questions. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in quality birds"

Willi Dinon - Queen Creek, AZ


" Just received my baby African Gray Congo parrot. What a delight! He is 12 weeks old. Still hand feeding him. He is extremely tamed even knows how to "step up" Thanks to the team at JC Aviary. The team at the Aviary especially Joe was amazing. He was so helpful being I'm new to parrots. He walked me through the whole process from start to finish. The payment method was stress free. Picking him up at the airport was a breeze. He came in a carrier along with spoon, syringe and food for his long flight home. His hatch certificate was included along with all pertinent info. Oh, yes, he even provided a video showing me how to feed my new baby. Over the top experience. If you're thinking of purchasing a parrot don't hesitate for a moment to contact JC Aviary in Texas."

Jessica Lillis Estenson - Chaska, MN


"We have adopted all three of our macaws from JC Aviary because we have been extremely happy with each of our birds. Additionally, anytime I had a question or concern regarding the birds, JC Aviary was willing to help me without any hesitation. My family and I can tell that he truly loved, and nurtured these birds while in his care because upon receiving each one, they were the most loving, and sweet birds we could have ever asked for. In the future, if we decide to add another addition to our family, we will definitely be coming back to JC Aviary. No question. I wouldn't trust anyone else."

Noah Hascall - Taylor, TX 


"I have owned birds of all sizes since I was 10 years old, I have dealt with the best and worst of breeders. I can honestly say without any hesitation these people are the BEST breeders/people/loving souls that I have ever encountered in the bird trade!!! 

Joe and his family are always available if you have any questions, they are an endless supply of knowledge with over 30 years in the field!  Not only do they answer any questions, but they actually love hearing about the babies once they are placed in your home! I am in contact with them on a weekly basis, providing updates and pictures that are placed on the website, and they truly care about all of the babies that were in their care!!

We have three macaws from them, we have Remi a Blue and Gold, Kimber a Greenwing, and Colt a baby Military who is 17 weeks right now! I spent months looking for a breeder I could trust, completely disregarded multiple ones after a short conversation on the phone, but once I talked to joe I knew they would be the breeder I used from that day forward!!!

If you have any hesitations, I recommend just talking to these people and they will put you at ease and you will never regret your choice to get a baby from them!!!!"

"I purchased my Eleanora Cockatoo in September 16 from Joe. I was apprehensive about buying online, however the experience was great. He arrived as scheduled in perfect condition. Had many questions about handfeeding and Joe always answered quickly."

"I'm so happy I purchased my African Grey from JC Aviary.  They delivered to me about 3 hours away. They spent time explaining everything I needed to know about transitioning the baby into my home.  You can tell they take care of their babies.  Our Grey is so sweet and tame.  He already knows how to step up.  He's so smart and loves to cuddle.  He's beautiful.  Worth every penny."

"I highly recommend Joe at JC Aviary. What a fabulous experience from start to finish. I purchased my sweet baby African Grey from Joe and was so impressed with his constant communication to me from her birth going forward. He was always there to assist me in any questions I might have. She is the sweetest baby, very socialized, and already starting to talk at five months old.. JC Aviary breeds the highest quality birds you will find and they maintain the highest integrity with their customers. I highly recommend JC Aviary to anyone looking for a healthy, well established and socialized bird. BEST EVER!!! Thank you to Joe and the entire family for being so great to us."

"Great people to deal with! would email me back right away with any questions I had. We got a Sun Conure from them and Sunny is an amazing healthy bird! very friendly right from the beginning!!! You can really tell they care about their birds!"

"A great breeder with the most beautiful and well tempered birds I've seen thus far. This was my first purchase from them and my first parrot and it was an easy, comfortable and low stress experience. My new pineapple green cheek conure is not only sweet as can be but in the peak of health. If and when I get another member of the flock I will certainly be back- everything from their big macaws and African grays to their conures and Quakers seem happy and healthy."

"Joe and his team were absolutely amazing to deal with. After much research when my parent's African Grey passed away, I found JC Aviary. He was wonderful and extremely easy to contact and speak to whenever I had a question. It was a very easy decision to choose him to get our baby from. Macy has been a wonderful addition to my parents' home and has acclimated very well due to Joe's loving and caring hands. I would highly recommend JC Aviary to anyone interested in purchasing a baby bird. Thank you so much !!!! :):)"

"I had a great experience with JC Aviary!  I purchased my baby female Eclectus from them (have had her now for almost 2 weeks) and am in love! They were very prompt at answering questions I had leading up to the shipping day and after - follow up making sure she is doing ok in her new home and answering any questions I had. I can tell they genuinely care about their babies which is comforting and important! My baby is already trained to step up, potty trained, eating well, and is very sweet. I love her!"

"I purchased a baby african grey from them and had such a wonderful experience. They really do a fantastic job hand raising the babies. He was eating very well on his own before I picked him up. What impressed me so much was how well adjusted this bird was. He isn't scared of things, he was really well socialized after I brought him home. I was afraid the trip to a new home might be really scary for this bird, but seeing how he adjusted so quickly; just showed me how well taken care of he was before I got him. He is the sweetest and most tame little guy. 

They were extremely thorough at going over how to care for him when I picked him up, even to the point of making sure I knew how to syringe feed him should I need to (which I never did have to) but they want to make sure you are going to care for their birds. They covered nutrition with me, and even had a little cage to take him home in. I highly recommend them if you are considering any of their birds. When I had him checked out at the vet, I brought all my paper work with me they provided, and even the vet was impressed with the literature they gave me at their dietary recommendations. She said, they are doing it right. 

Great experience from start to finish :)"

"I drove a total of 12 hours to get my baby Sun Conure Chibi, she was eating fruits and veggies already and is the friendliest bird I've ever had. She lives everyone she meets. Joe is the perfect breeder, very kind and knowledgable. I love my baby!!"
