Emerald Forest Bird Gardens maintains a dedicated nursery, where all our birds receive quality, tender loving care. Nursery staff members are required to have a degree in biology and all are well trained in the art and science of baby bird care.

Each baby is handreared and well socialized, to provide you with the best baby possible. Each bird is treated as an individual with its own personality, which shines through as it should in a quality, loving baby bird.

Our baby birds are raised on the New Mazuri Handfeeding Formula for all baby birds. Various strained baby fruits such as apples with bananas or blueberries with apples is added to the formula for handrearing of the toucans, toucanets, and Aracaris

All babies are abundance weaned at their own pace when they are ready. Every individual develops into a tame, friendly, affectionate pet quality bird that will be a wonderful addition to your family and a pleasure to own.

Emerald Forest produces the healthiest birds and our staff veterinarian, Dr. Kris Kuchinski, checks all our babies. Dr. Kuchinski sexes our birds and issues health certificates on request. All babies are guaranteed free of any disease and in the best of health and condition.

Emerald Forest does not ship unweaned baby birds. People wishing to finish the handfeeding process must pick up their unweaned babies in person at the farm.
