K and K Parrot Supplies: Everything Your Feathered Friend Needs
K and K Parrot Supplies recently opened a new retail store at 4608 Land O’ Lakes Boulevard. For more than 13 years the online retailer has been providing bird owners and lovers with high quality toys, food, and accessories at competitive prices and now, with their brick and mortar location, they are able to serve their customers and their birds even better and continuing to live up to their slogan to provide feathered friends with everything they need to live happy, healthy lives.
If you are a new bird owner, K and K Parrot Supplies owners Kathy and Karen are a wealth of knowledge. They owned a breeding aviary in Delaware for 10 years before entering the pet supply business but even before that Kathy was in love with birds. “My first pet bird was a cockatiel. After that, the birds I kept as pets got bigger and bigger.”
Kathy now owns three parrots and is happy to share her expertise from years as a pet bird owner and breeder. One area where she sees some misconceptions among pet bird owners is when it comes to food. “The quality of bird food has become so much better than it was years ago.
Parrots and bigger birds can live up to 80 years but with the high quality food available now, they may have a longer life span. Many people think it is ok to just feed seeds to birds but good quality food is very important or the bird can get sick.”
K and K Parrot Supplies carry the full lines of high quality foods by Hari, Volkman, and Higgins. They even carry both the TOP’s and Harrison’s lines of organic foods. If your bird is a picky eater or has food allergies, Kathy and Karen are happy to special order any type of food your favorite bird might need. “Parrots and other birds make great pets,” says Karen. “They all have different personalities and when you talk and interact with them they become amazing companions. Like any animal you have to give them love, attention, and care.”
Kathy and Karen are happy to help bird owner with tips on how to best care for them. Kathy even takes notes for each customer so she can help them remember what they bought the last time they were in the store.
K and K Parrot Supplies stocks foraging and enrichment toys and cages of all sizes to help keep your feathered friend happy and occupied.
Monthly wing clipping will help keep your pet bird safe if he or she spends time outside his or her cage. With this procedure birds are still able to exercise their muscles while easily moving around the house and being able to coast to a safe landing. This important procedure is best handled by an expert. Kathy and Karen are happy to be able to provide this service to their customers along with nail trimming. Most people do not feel comfortable doing this on their own and Kathy and Karen have years of experience. They can ensure your bird is groomed properly and safely.
Karen and Kathy are very active in the community and are happy to be able to donate food to local rescue organizations.
