We bought an African Grey from them in 2/14. She was shaking when we got her and they said "oh that's normal". In December she fell from her perch and had trouble walking. We brought her to the vet and they said she had the avian bornavirus. This only comes from other birds and we have no other birds. The vet said it must have come from the breeder or the store. I called the store and the owner told me there was nothing he can do other than offer us a discount on another sick bird. We had to spend the last few months watching our bird waste away. She passed away a few weeks ago. This place is dirty, the food is infested with bugs and the birds are sick! Reading reviews and talking with other people we have found others with similar stories. This is just awful. You spend $1500 on a bird that should live 60 years and you and your family have to watch it waste away. They should be out of business.

I just recently adopted a cockatoo she needed her wing's and nails trimmed.We stopped at Paterson bird store for some information and a carrier, The staff where very friendly and helpful. i purchased a carrier and some toy's for my cockatoo, The following day i took my bird for her clipping of wings and nail's and once again was treated very kindly it didn't matter if i was spending $20.00 or $2000.00 i still treated the same way with respect. i am definitely going to recommend and keep shopping there.

I bought my first parakeet here. They gave me lots of information. My parakeet was kind of shy at first, but he seemed healthy and very tame. I don't think that they can take care of so many birds at once, but from what I've seen all of the birds seem happy, healthy, and tame. I would definetly come back here.

I have shopped Paterson Bird store for years.
I have moved to NC and nothing compares. I have trouble finding good treats and food for my African Grey. I will have to shop when I come for a visit.

I am the owner of 33 birds, several of them purchased at the Paterson Bird Store. I shop at the store weekly & enjoy browsing around to see what new toys they have - especially on the 30% off wall ! - & check out the wide selection of cages & the variety of food from seeds to pellets to treats, but I especially love to visit all the adorable birds & get to know them a bit before they are adopted into good homes. I look forward to Friday nights at the bird store -the only night they are open until 9 PM. The staff is the best ! I highly recommend the Paterson Bird Store as THE place to shop for birds & supplies.

I've been going to this store for years now, and everything there from the baby birds, to the seed, to the advice and supplies is excellent!
I totally disagree with the previous comment about the seed not sprouting. It's always fresh and I know this because I often chat with the employees and owners. They get their seed fresh from their distributors every week!
Great staff, great supplies.
Any current or future bird owner should definitely go there!

This is a great little Bird store. The staff is friendly and knowlegable. Most Importantly their birds are friendly and in great health. I always get my conure's wings clipped here and have never had a problem with any of the staff. I recommend this place to all my fellow birdlovers.

I loved visiting the Paterson Bird Store. I thought their staff was very knowledgeble, and extremely friendly. They have an incredible selection of birds, seeds, and toys. I disagree with the last post, as I find their seeds to be very fresh. I would never consider shopping at any other bird "store"

I agree that this bird store is clean and the birds are kept very well. They have a great selection of toys (a little pricey, though) but a lot of stuff you don't see in other places. The staff is very willing to offer advice, but double check on advice as there is more than one way to do things and I don't agree with some of their suggestions. Unfortunately, I am very disappointed with the quality of their seed. Whenever I buy seed I sprout it to make sure that is is fresh. I've bought seed there recently two times and neither purchase of seed sprouted, which means I wasted my money as fresh is better for the nutrition of your bird. I won't go back for seed, but for everything else it's fine.

I have been a customer for many years. I thought they had nice personalities and can be very knowledgeable. I trusted the girl handling my bird until they unintentionally hurt one during a trimming. I knew it was an accident but i wanted to get it looked at by a vet. I tried to talk to them about it and they hung up on me. Wow how people can turn so quickly. Needless to say I will not go back. Very, very disappointed.

I have purchased my zebra finches (that are now 12 years old!!!) and my 10 year old Meyer's Parrot from Paterson Bird Store. They have very high quality birds and keep them clean and healthy in the store.

They have a wonderful selection of bird toys, cages, and bird food.

Three suggestions:

1. Educate people who are buying your birds how to care for them and what they will encounter. I'm pretty knowlegable about birds, but they didn't know that. I received absolutely no instruction when I purchased my Meyers. Of course that was a decade ago, so that may have changed.

2. They need to keep people's dirty hands out of the loose seed. They should have a strict policy that only the staff will scoop out the seed. That's why I only buy pre-bagged seed from them. I worry about what kind of bacteria my birds would pick up. I always see people running their hands through the seed and nobody stops them.

3. They need to screen their bird toys. I only buy toys that are made in the USA because other countrys (like China and Mexico) have been known to contain toxic substances in their pet toys.

But, overall.. I think it's a wonderful little store. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

I have never owned a bird but I visited this store to look at them. They offer a good selection of not only birdies but also cages and bird supplies. The staff was nice when I was there. I would recommend this store for anyone who owns a bird or who is thinking about getting one.

Although I no longer have a bird - I did for many years and frequented this store. They had a large selection of food, treats and toys. They were helpful and pleasant to deal with.
They had many birds and cages for sale. I totally reccomend this store for any bird owner!
