Ana's Parrots

Has anyone heard of Ana's Parrots in East Stroudsburg, PA? Anasparrots.com
My friend whose rescued CAG that passed in surgery is looking to adopt a 5-yr old male Grey from them. I think she should ask for references?

Re: Ana's Parrots

Yes, unfortunately I'm extremely familiar with them...It's Ana's in Stroudsberg and Lily's in Hazelton, they are one in the same, and are not at all parrot breeders, but rather parrot "brokers" who buy extremely young baby parrots from their actual breeders at wholesale prices, thousands of them, and then assembly-line tube-feed them, then sell them for a gigantic profit. At any given time they have young babies of every species of parrot, and they sell them at ridiculous prices. These two women have nothing to do with raising, handling, taming, or feeding their birds at all, and they will not let you actually go to their "facilities", they would rather you pay them $125 or whatever to ship them to you in a crate, but if you contact them and say you want to see a baby bird, they will give you an address to meet them at that is a house, rather than their "breeding warehouses"...Stay away, these two women are practicing exactly what needs to be stopped, and making a fortune doing it. People are always thrilled with them because most of the birds they sell are shipped, and they have no idea what is really going on with them, they think they are the breeders. I can't imagine being happy paying their prices, but once you figure out what they are actually doing, it's horrifying and disgusting...

Re: Ana's Parrots

As Ellen has said 'Ana's Parrots is just one big baby parrot mill! I see ads ALL the TIME.

DO NOT BUY. There have been cases of sick birds coming from them with all kinds of viruses and diseases. DO NOT BUY. She has tons of babies and is always selling for way over what normal prices would be by a LOT.

Tell your friend, RUN, don't walk from Ana's Parrots!

Re: Ana's Parrots

Oh one thing to look for is if they have parrots "all the time" yeah bad news. A true good breeder has a flock, of one species, weens, then quickly sells them all. Then time passes with no parrots....

If they are constantly refurbished it's a mill.

Re: Ana's Parrots

Thanks guys. Will alert her pronto! It seems everything out there is a scam. Where can she get a healthy CAG? Royal Bird Company?

Re: Ana's Parrots

Seriously, it's common knowledge among bird owners and breeders in central PA, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, lower NY, etc. that Ana's and Lily's are simply a Broker's running 2 huge bird mills at different locations about an hour or so away from each other. If you have ever seen their ads or looked at their FaceBook pages, they quite literally, not exaggerating, have pretty much ANY species of parrot for sale at ANY time of the year. They import baby birds from all over the US, from breeders who are willing to sell them unweaned so they can make a quick profit and move-on to new clutches and not have to finish hand-feeding them. There "ads" read like a damn online-catalog of parrot species for sale, just look up what you want, click, order, pay, and have it shipped to you within the week by air-freight...

It's not surprising that most of their sales are to people from other states far from the northeast who know nothing about them, except that they are very "active" parrot breeders, that's it. So they sell and ship a ton of birds all over the country every single day...If you read their "reviews" posted on their websites and their FaceBook pages by "satisfied customers", the one thing they all have in common is that they are all from states far away from the northeast and mid-Atlantic states, a lot to CA, OR, WA, NM, UT, CO, TX, etc. These people think they are actually breeding the birds they sell, and they think they must be reputable due to the number of birds they sell....Just like a puppymill...

****What's hilarious is that "Ana" started out on her own as a Broker, tried it, it worked well and she made a fortune, and then the word got out about her practices, so then she took-on a partner, "Lily", who is conveniently located in Hazelton, PA, about an hour or so away from Ana in East Stroudsberg, PA, so it looks like they are two totally different "breeders" or operations. They each have their own websites/FaceBook pages,
their own ads, and one is called "Ana's Parrots" and the other "Lily's Parrots".
However, if you call one of them to inquire about a bird you are seeing on their website, often they will tell you to "call my partner, as that bird is located at her location", it's like they each have a freaking warehouse and are selling car parts or something, lol...It's not funny, but that's how they operate. "Oh, yes, the Congo African Grey babies, let me check...Yes, they are located at my partner's location in Hazelton, please give her a call at this number, she'll be able to help you out...". Seriously, that's the dialogue...How do I know? Because the Avian Rescue that I've been working at for the last 8 years has taken-in so many birds that originally came from Ana's or Lily's that were surrendered because their new owners couldn't afford to pay thousands of dollars in Vet bills to treat the PBFD Polyoma, Psittacosis, etc. that their birds came to them with!!! So we and other Rescues/Shelters and private bird Foster's end-up taking them in and spending our donations and grant money to pay to treat the hundreds of very sick birds that come from them as babies, young adults, and yes, they sell their "breeder's" for mega bucks too...That's right, in what I fell is their most disgusting act, Ana and Lily actually buy older breeder birds from their breeders, after the poor things have spent their entire lives locked in tiny breeding cages, being bred to death,
and are no longer producing; they buy these old, retired breeder birds for nothing from the breeders, literally nothing, and then sell them as "adult parrots" or even as "proven breeders" to the public at costs over full retail for a new hand-raised baby...


They simply "Recycle" birds, babies and adults....Stay away, far, far away...
