Please note: We love to try to help whenever we can, so if you have questions for us, please call. Since starting this website, we've been absolutely swamped with e-mails. Because we're almost always busy with the birds, we don't have a lot of time to correspond back and forth with folks about complicated issues such as which type of bird is the right one, behavioural problems, breeding issues, etc. We're way behind in answering quite a few people, and to them we apologize. At any given time, there is about a one month backlog of e-mails for us to get through. To be fair we try to get to them in order, so there will definitely be a delay in answering if you write. If you phone, we can help you right away. Thank you very much.

Hi, we'd like to introduce ourselves.......Debbie Kinloch and Mike Csorbay are retired breeders, and the owners of a parrot grooming and boarding facilty in Southern Ontario, Canada, called Parrot Farm. Situated on 95 acres, we bred parrots here for 34 years. A lot of people ask us, "How'd you get started doing this?"
Debbie has been involved with birds for many years, having owned a Budgie as a child, and being an avid bird watcher and nature lover. She went to Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida, and graduated with a degree in Biology, and at the time had an Indian Ring-necked Parakeet firmly rooted to her shoulder. After a few years in Colorado, where she worked in animal-related jobs and dabbled in breeding parrots, she came to Canada with her two pet birds, where she started breeding Canaries, Budgies, Cockatiels, and Lovebirds in her home in Hamilton, Ontario. After moving to the farm in 1985, she started an aviary with a more diverse set-up, which had over 100 breeding pairs of a variety of parrot family members.
Mike (fortunately) is an animal lover too. Born and raised in Ontario, his family had Budgies, a Cockatiel, an African Grey, and a disabled Blue Jay while he was growing up. He enjoys feeding the parrots, and working around the farm.
Mike and Debbie have many interests outside of aviculture. Debbie likes nature and weather phenomenon, and has taken some photographs of lightning, aurora borealis, meteors and comets. If you'd like to see some of her photos, please check out her Photo Page. As well, both Mike and Debbie have started a collection of colourful, old glass insulators that were first used on telegraph poles in the mid to late 1800's.
