Who We Are
Five Oaks Aviary (Bob
and Lea) are hobby breeders who love birds. We are two people
who have found great joy in raising and caring for birds in our
home. We have a lot of fun interacting, playing with, and loving
each member of our "family". We love to entertain them and they
also entertain us. Their health and happiness is our primary
We have some that love
to dance and sing with us. Our Blue Crown Conure, Maggie, has
learned the words to a song I made up for her and will sing it
whenever we walk into the room. She loves the interaction with
as do most of them. When walking around the aviary singing; most of
the flock will join in and have a great time with us.
several hobbies that we enjoy and they all seem to flow
together for the benefit of us; along with our feathered
family members. We raise a garden, have bees who
produce wonderful honey, and have started an orchard.
We also have a green house for our love of orchids, cactus,
and our ever-growing collection of dwarf fruit trees.
parrots is a lot of fun and work. It is not for everyone;
but we have found it is rewarding and worth the efforts for
us. It is a huge responsibility that we do not take lightly.
We know when we put up a nest box; we are obligated to each
baby produced to give it a healthy and happy start in life.
Their future is in our hands and finding the best home and
new family is a responsibility we do not take lightly. We do
look forward to the emails and pictures from their new

cooking and the "flock" members have learned the sounds of
their meals being prepared. It can get quite noisy
around here when we are making things for them. We have
learned that you need to be extra careful not to let
something spill over in the oven or stove top because Bingo;
one of our TAG's; will let you know that she thinks you are
burning her food. The wonderful happy sounds after they get
their breakfast or other treats during the day is so rewarding
for the time taken for them. We are also a firm
believer in "what you put in is what you get back".
This shows in the babies that are produced by our breeders.
We provide toys and things to keep them entertained and
mentally stimulated. They love to have something new
or something they haven't played with in awhile. With the
Macaws; the toys usually don't make it for a second time
around. Bob is great with making new wood toy parts
for all to enjoy.
A lot of people ask us
why we don't raise a certain species. Our breeders are very
much a part of our home and family. There are some species that we
have found that we just don't relate to as much as others. It
isn't that they are not great birds or that the species isn't a good
one as pets. Just like people have different preferences in food,
dogs, or other areas in their lives; each species of parrots is
unique in their own way. We feel it is best to raise what we
personally bond with and enjoy the most. We would never want any
bird in our home to feel slighted in any way. If you are
looking for a specific species in which we do not raise; please let
us know and we will be happy to refer you to another breeder.
