About

Rosie_portraitBeaker’s Parrot Place was established in 2008 by Elena and Jeremy Galbraith. For as long as we can remember, we have had a passion for birds, especially parrots. Several years ago now, we made a thoughtful decision to buy a companion parrot. From the many species of parrots out there, we decided on a Solomon Island Eclectus parrot to suit our lifestyle. Welcome Rosie!

Beaker_portraitAnd it was not long after that we brought home Beaker to join the family – what a cutie and such a wonderful laid back personality! Our parrots are developing into good talkers. We love to sit in the sun room in the late afternoon or early evening and listen to their chatter and sounds they make as they settle down to bed for the night. What a joy!

As a natural result of owning this business and getting to know SO many amazing species of parrots, we just had to ADD to our personal flock. Presented in order of our personal adoption (i.e., we took them off the market).

  • Silverback – Congo African Grey
  • Lilly – Timneh African Grey
  • AR-B – African Red Bellied parrot
  • Gizmo – Hahns Macaw
  • Gertrude Weinstein “Gerty” – Greenwing Macaw

We cannot forget to acknowledge the rest of our family:

  • Daisy and Rizzo – our two very cool dogs
  • ‘Boo’ – our cute black kitty cat
  • And our extended family of deer and elk who drop by on occasion (we live out in the country)

Our PRICING and ASSURANCE to You

Price List – We have chosen NOT to publish a price list for one very good reason: many breeders in our private and extensive network breed similar species and they all have their own pricing models. What we chose to do is quote a ‘current market’ price ‘range’ and the actual price of your baby will be within that range, preferably at the lower end…. this gives you value and makes sense.
