Moluccan Flight Completed!!!
FEBS is very excited to announce the completion of our new flight that was built for all of the Moluccan Cockatoo's that have come to us and have been patiently waiting to have this new freedom!  This flight is 40' in length with a 10' safety catch room that can double as an acclimation room for future intakes to get used to the other birds before release into the flock.  It is 16' high and 16' wide. Plenty of room for the 24 Moluccans released there to fly, play and interact with each other in an environment that is full of swings, toys and cargo nets.  They have 12 feeding stations spread out along the sides.  We will be adding electric service to the flight for fans and heaters in the winter as well as a heavy duty clear "curtain system" to shut the flight down in inclement weather. Also an automatic misting system and cameras for live feed are in the works.

We are very happy to announce the New African Grey flight is complete and 26 Greys are now loving their larger, beautiful flight. Many thanks to all of the people that donated to the expense of putting this together and all of the volunteers and staff that worked hard to give these wonderful birds this state of the art aviary fully equipped with water, electric, shelter, safe toys, boings, perches and plenty of food and water stations. We are already working on the next flight cage with a double door system between two cages. Please help in any way you can as we need many more flights. Please be patient as we are working as fast as we can (finances and labor a huge factor) to get ALL of the birds in the new large flights! Please let us know if you can help lend a hand or help finance an aviary!

FEBS finds perfect property for expansion… Here are some photos of our progress!

After a long two year search, FEBS and its flock have finally found the perfect property for our desperately needed expansion. More importantly, we will be able to give flight cages to ALL of the 600+ parrots in our care! We will also be able to help many more parrots and the families that are wanting nothing more than to have their parrots "Just be a bird!"

A project this massive is going to take lots of dedication and financial support! The Staff, Officers, Board Members, Members and Volunteers are committed to putting their all into the expansion and relocation of FEBS’ parrots in our Lifelong Care Facility.

So we ask all of you, our loyal supporters, to please consider helping in any way you can! Sponsoring a flight cage is a really helpful part of the bigger vision and we really need you guys, the bird families and friends of our flock!

Please consider that this project will cost an estimated $500,000! In the last year of acquiring this new property we have come a long way through the help of many of our devoted members and owners of the parrots – not to mention the endless hours of volunteer work from our Board of Directors, volunteers, their families and anyone that could help us with this massive project. We and the birds are eternally grateful for all of your help

We still have along way to go so if you have a free weekend or some time that you would like to come work with us, please contact us and we can make arrangements for your stay, and put you to work! It is a very fulfilling job that will leave you with a great sense of pride that you helped these parrots in such an awesome way!

If you or a business that you work for are able to help or if you know of anyone who may be able to help FEBS please contact Patricia Norton (A.K.A. "Birdmother") toll free: 1-844-352-2473, ext 1, and we can schedule dates that we will be putting teams together to help. If you have not already, please join our blog also, we will be posting working dates there are well!

If you would like to help but just can't get away to Florida, supplies are very much needed, especially cage wire and hardware. Simply click on the Big Blue Feather to the right to donate (tax deductible) funds toward this very important project!
