Snow and Snowball had 3 wee babies that are weaning right now. Due to a waiting list they do have homes waiting for them.
However, being the busy little pair they are Snow is sitting on another larger batch of eggs this time round. Be sure to get in touch with me if you think one of their babies will suit your home.
These little birds are the perfect little apartment pets. They are very quiet, chipper and dainty birds. On a whole they are very gentle bird and can be very affectionate.
Charlie and Peaches had some wonderful babies in the past year. The big guy in the middle is a baby Kakariki. He just loved his gentle companions. The little Bourke’s did not seem to notice he was not quite like them… just another warm body!
NOTE: At this time I have two Normal Bourke’s available. Their hatch dates are Sept 24 and 28 ’07.
Sweetie Tweeties’ conures were very well received last season. Thank you to all, who in spite of no changes in the website inquired anyway and welcomed one of these little characters into your home!!
If a Conure interests you let me know and …..Reserve now!!!!
Frick and Frick, my beautiful Sun Conures are finally of age and with any luck I hope to announce the arrival of their babies this season. Nest boxes are up and I am just waiting for some action from them!
This fall I purchased another pair of Suns who just happen to be sitting on eggs right now! And guess what they are fertile!!!! Keep watch for further updates! Do not be afraid to inquire!

My Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are sitting on eggs awaiting the arrival of their new clutch of babies. Their last clutch were snapped up before they were weaned. Here’s why… just a phenomenal group of Dutchblue lovies.
Who needs “Telus” when I get the real deal!

Now I am a big boy!
No King Parrots are available at this time. The Australian King Parrot is new to Sweetie Tweeties. They are a young pair, just of breeding age. It may take some practice on their part and a bit of luck before we have babies.
The parrotlets are such brave little souls. They grow up fast and before I know it they are weaned and independent. My “pet” names for the green parrotlets are "Green Goblins" and "Cookie Monsters" for the little blue dudes. This is as close as I get to giving my baby birds a name as naming babies makes it hard for me to part with them.
Having said that now I have these adorable little pastel parrotlets just hatched in July. Hmmm… what to nickname them?
Devoted lovie pairs that are retiring or have never produced but are bonded to each other. Please note: they are not tame! I would like to place them in homes that would appreciate their company and don't mind letting a bird be a bird! If you think you are that person that can provide such a home....
Please contact me and state why you think you can provide them a good retirement.
Leave me a phone number to contact you.
A nominal fee is charged!
No Breeders need reply, Please!!!!!!!!
Thank you Trish,
…for the lovely note you sent telling me about yourself and why you wanted to adopt my retired birds. Thank you also for taking two of my lovies, Jilly & Lune, into your home!
An added note regarding Jilly and Lune:
At the October 2007 show this year Trish took the opportunity to come visit me at my table. She updated me on Jilly and Lune and of course Sweetie Tweeties’ first Maroonbelly Conure she had adopted at the same time. It was just a great treat to see her and have her tell me about these birds that she and her family have come to love so much.
Another successful adoption
This year is was Doreen who adopted a crazy pair of Blackmasked Lovies, Blackie and Lindy. This very bonded pair of birds stole the hearts of many who saw them at the show. But it was Doreen and her family who I chose to let adopt these two lovies. I have been in contact with Doreen a couple of times since then to find that all is well. Thank you to Doreen and your family.
Miro and Picalo
Miro and Picalo were brought to me this summer by a young girl. She had owned these birds for approximately 6 years. Upon returning to school she found she was unable to keep them. She is hoping there is someone out there who will adopt them and continue to love them as she did.
Miro is an olive Peachface. He is a calm bird that loves to sit and snuggle. He is a calm bird and is quite wiling to try new foods.
Picalo is the yellow pied Peachface. He loves to play and chew and also tends to be the pickier eater of the two. Picalo is also the reason why Miro is plucked around the neck area.
This little bird was found in north Edmonton. As you can see it has had a beak injury which occurred during its escape, otherwise in good health. This bird was hand raised by a friend of mine. She traced the bird to its' original owner but they had sold it to someone else and did not keep records. If you recognize this bird as yours and can identify it by its' band number then you can claim it.
On the other hand if you think you can give this bird a good forever home this little guy is up for adoption for a nominal fee. This bird has obviously been interactive with its' previous owners and would make someone a good little pet. Not bitey at all! Hatch date is spring of 2005.
