We carry a wide selection of birds that are all bred locally. All our parrots are hand-raised – mostly by ourselves – so we know they will make excellent pets.

We import our own range of cages so we can give you the best prices and selection.

We stock everything your bird will need: fresh seed, food, treats, ailment medicines, perches, toys, stands, nests, bowls, swings, ladders, books and much more.

Here are some important principles to which we adhere:

  • In line with conservation guidelines Animal Kingdom will only keep birds (and other animals) that have been captivity bred.
  • We always try to source our animals from trusted breeders that adhere to ethical practices.
  • Animals are not manufactured items so they cannot be ordered on demand. Their breeding is affected by various factors such as season or climatic changes.
  • With some species only one or two might be available during a breeding season.

Our hand-reared birds

Animal Kingdom is a pet shop, so we keep birds that are destined to become pets. Although breeders will occasionally buy from us to import new blood into their breeding stock, our primary aim is to supply pets to people.

We do a lot of hand-rearing of birds in-store. We buy them at an appropriate age and then hand-feed them until they are ready to go to new homes. This normally results in a much tamer bird that is used to being handled by people.
