We live in Southern
Louisiana, our aviary is a closed facility, to protect our birds
and their right to privacy. Many of our breeder birds are
imports, and it has taken many years for them to trust us. Some
of them are very out going to humans, others are shy birds, and
it has taken lots of time to get to know them. Something we won't
jeopardize, they are not just breeders, we know them all
personally. Their likes and dislikes are all considered when
caring for them, some cockatoos love lemons others don't, and so
on. We have one cockatoo whom hates purple toys another one
purple is his favorite choice.
We are a small aviary
and we enjoy our birds they are not pushed into breeding, they
are bred if they so desire. Even in a breeding situation our
birds are provided with toys, and swings and that sort of thing.
We believe that they can and do become bored, without things to
do throughout the day. Being a smaller aviary we are able to give each bird more
attention then just maintenance and our babies are very socialized. This is a
key ingredient in raising the sweetest baby birds with a much more personal
touch, than if we were a larger aviary.
Due to there longevity
we provide them with different sized perches and branches in
which to perch on. Since they spend most of there time perching,
we don't want it to be in the same exact place on there feet all
the time. Presser can build calluses after a long period of time
always standing in the exact same place.
I have been a delegate of The
American Federation of Agriculture, and I am also
a members. I am a founding charter member of Acadiana Bird
Club, Inc., and I have served on the board of directors for three
years 1999, 2000, 2001, which I must now leave to do other things
that have taken up all my extra time. I have served as
advertising chairperson from 1998 to 2010 for the club. I have also
worked in and around Acadiana to help raise money for those less
fortunate than myself. I have, and am still working towards
more informed pet owners, so our feathered friends can be cared
for just a little bit better.
I was raised in Palm
Beach, Florida near the beach. My father a prominent retired mathematics
professor "Raymond W. Sweet" still in Florida, and my mother a talented person
in her own right "Phyllis Sweet" a former hair dresser and homemaker, whom now
resides in North Carolina. Although I dearly miss the family. I now live in the Acadiana area of Louisiana, a culture so different than the one I grew up with
but one that I soon learned was a less fast pace than Florida. With so many
friendly people of the "Cajun" culture here I soon made this my home to stay.
The food, the unique cajun culture, and friendly hospitality is truly hard to
find most anywhere else.
I have loved
animals all my life and lived with a great deal of respect for them as well as a
great many of them and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have a wonderful son
"Aaron" whom currently lives in New York and tells me often he loves it
there, I am glad it pleases him even though I miss him being so far. I always
anticipated a large family but sometimes we must make adjustments for the things
we are not so blessed with. With just one child whom is all grownup and mostly
away my animals have filled the space of the large family I had so wished for.
I have studied animals
their care, behavior, nutritional needs, psychological needs, breeding, feeding
and socializing them. All to help them become the most beloved pet and family member in your
home and mine. In turn I have tried to pass on my knowledge to those that will
care for them after they leave my home. I am never hard to find to ask questions
about them, as they are and always will be my extended family and hopefully
yours for many, many memorable years to come. My website was created to educate,
enlighten and share a lot of what I know and do. Many mini clips and pictures
you won't find any where else on hatching babies, pictures and stories for all
I also have worked part time
for a veterinarian and loved my job, my boss and co workers are still my
extended family. It helps me keep current and up to date with
all my animals needs, as well as my continuous quest for knowledge, we are never
to old to learn something new.
We here at Sweet Acre Bird Farm have provided
comfortable quarters with all the needs "plus" met for the happiness and well
being of our birds. Breeders are not just breeders but pets that we love. They
are provided with all possible accommodations: music, special lighting, tropical
plants, a pleasant atmosphere, toys (even breeders) a varied nutritiously
balanced diet and just like us they like snacks and are even cooked for.
