Parrot Planet has opened their doors at 4819 J Street, in East Sacramento, with an amazing array of birds on exhibit and for sale, and everything a bird owner could ever need.
Walking into the open and welcoming store, you won’t know where to turn your attention first as birds of every color are enjoying spacious cages, natural wood perches and an array of toys of every size and shape. The walls of the store are covered with every type of toy a bird could ever want.
A large world map covers one of the walls, with photos of the birds that are indigenous to the area. Even if you have no desire to welcome a winged creature into your home, you can’t help but be entertained and educated in this store.
A trip to Parrot Planet is better than a trip to any zoo, because in this store you are invited to touch and pet and get to know the birds. Several “store birds” will make their home here and welcome visitors. Ariel, the Toucan, Babe, the Panama Yellow-Naped Amazon parrot and Guinness the Palm Cockatoo are just some of the exotic birds that will be on display.
Store owners Dana Strome, Peter Schniedermeier and Steven Hildreth are all parrot experts, and one of them will always be on hand to help guide you to finding the perfect pet for your unique situation. Their goal is not just to make a sale, but to find a lifetime home for the birds they sell. They will be offering classes on bird care from an avian veterinarian and behavior classes from a bird behaviorist and will also help guide new bird guardians.
Some of the bird varieties that Parrot Planet will offer for sale are Caique’s, Electus, Ducorps Cockatoos, Illigers Macaws, African Greys and Toucanettes.
In addition to the birds themselves, the store stocks a variety of cages, perches and carriers and may types of foods. They have toys for every size and type of bird and other items that bird owners may need like cage covers and little tents to let the birds get their daily 10 to 12 hours of sleep they need to thrive.
All prices quoted at Parrot Planet will include sales tax, so you will always know the “out the door” price.
On Saturday, August 3, 2013, Parrot Planet will have their Grand Opening. The first 50 customers will receive a special gift.
Parrot Planet will be open Monday through Friday from 11 AM to 7 PM and Weekends from 11 AM to 5 PM.
