Cash, certified cheque, money orders, internet transfers or direct deposits are accepted.

Cobalt linnie in flight - thanks to Gary and Kim for this awesome pic!
Wheeee! Shower time!
Be extra cautious when taking wee linnies outdoors. Even a clipped bird can go a distance with a gust of wind under it's wings!
West Nile virus is also a threat nowadays.
Regular spray showers keeps your linnie looking it's best!

This little hen is so sweet and very personable... she's a real love!
I guarantee the health of my birds within 3 business days of purchase. I highly recommend that all birds be examined by an avian trained veterinarian and if during this 3 day interval, the bird(s) are found to have a condition that affects their health as determined in writing by an avian trained vet, Homestead's Hatchery will either refund the purchase price or replace the bird(s). Because many avian diseases are transmitted through the air, my guarantee is valid only if the bird(s) are not kept in the same air space as other birds. For this reason, I will happily keep the bird(s) at my facility for one week past delivery date or until DNA disease test results are determined. All vet bills are the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Please satisfy yourself as to our health guarantee before contacting us!

Note how the flash in this pic shows up the bronze feathering on the wings. They all have this but it doesn't show well in indoor lighting. Many subtle shades appear when you take a pionus outside into the sunlight.
