PHOENIX- The Arizona Bird Store in Mesa is your one-stop shop for exotics from Toucans to super rare black Cockatiels that cost $35,000 to adopt.
Owner Debbie Schweikardt has been “doing birds” (her words) since 1987. She thought there needed to be more education around birds so she became the source and her business has grown ever since.
Debbie has so many birds in her shop that she loses count. She does an audit every year and the number is usually around 400.
The Arizona Bird Store raises birds, grooms birds, microchips birds and helps bird-owners in need.
“These guys are long-lived creatures so you have to prepare for that but sometimes you just can’t.”Debbie Schweikardt , The Arizona Bird Store
Pro-Arizona Debbie donates food, houses birds and more to help anyone in need wherever they live.
You can visit the Arizona Bird Store Monday through Sunday. Find their full hours online.
