There are two types of deposits that I take.
Hatch Deposit: $50 – Fully Refundable
This deposit is a guarantee that you are going to purchase one of the available hatched babies. This is just a deposit to show good faith on an unidentified baby bird after it has already been hatched. This deposit is fully refundable until the baby is identifiable. Once the birds are sexed and mutations are identified, the buyer may choose bird of their choice from the available list of birds. If the buyer is unhappy with the options, they may choose to get the full $50 refund of the hatchling or save the deposit for the next available clutch. Those that make a hatch deposit get first pick on available color options. Hatch deposit coloring choices are made in the order in which the deposit was received. i.e. Person 1 paid before person 2 gets to choose first.
Bird Deposit: Half the cost of the bird of choice. Non-refundable.
By this time the birds have already feathered out and mutations and sexes can be determined. This deposit is non-refundable and must be made to ensure the specific bird is not sold to another party. If the buyer has paid a hatch deposit, that deposit will roll into the Bird Deposit after the bird is chosen. Once this happens, the deposit is non refundable. If half the cost exceeds the hatch deposit, then that portion of the deposit is due.
Remaining Balance: The remaining balance of the bird chosen is due upon pick up or 1 week before booking the airline tickets. If shipping the bird, buyer must also pay all shipping expenses 1 week prior to booking.
We will be willing to hold your baby up to 2 weeks after weaning if necessary. But if you are unable to pay for the bird in full after the 2 week period, we reserve the right to sell the bird in question. If this happens we will be happy to put your deposit onto the next available bird.
Acceptable Forms of Payment: Paypal, Money Orders, Cashiers Checks, & Cash. Buyers will pay any fees and taxes when utilizing these forms of payment.
