"A phoenix is a mythical bird with a tail of beautiful gold and red plumage (or purple and blue, by some sources ). It has a 500 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again." wikipedia
About Phoenix Feathers
The name of our aviary was chosen as a symbol of our ability to reinvent ourselves and follow our own tracks into eternity. A bit deep perhaps but the truth nevertheless. Our first Cockatiels came to us in 2008, in need of a new home fast and in taking them in, their lives and ours were transformed. All too quickly, the charm of these wonderful little birds led us into the world of breeding Cockatiels for show and pet.
Phoenix Cockatiels is a small home-based aviary focused on producing quality Cockatiels in a variety of mutations, including Pied, Lutino, Cinnamon, Pearl, Fallow, Dominant Silver, Emerald, Whiteface, Pastelface and Dominant Yellow Cheek.
We're expanding! Watch for our new additions:
Shannon's Greencheek Conures
Joan & Shannon's Pacific Parrotlets
Shannon's Red Rump Grasskeets
