Hi my name is Elwood Wells. My wife and I live in SW Florida. We have a Jack Russell Terror named "Data". He recently was 16 years old and is moving rather slower than he used to move.
We both have taken vows of poverty and become public school teachers, now retired. Since we are in SW FL we at least are not cold and poor. Our two kids are grown and doing well on their own . The pictures of sun conures, greencheek conures, ringnecks, greys and lizards are all our own animals.
My wife and I both share a love of animals. We are however retired and getting older so we no longer raise any animals. We do garden and we still have three ringnecks and a moustache. They range from 18 to 26.
I will maintain this page until the end of 2014 and I am available for questions or advice. We have raised over 500 sun conures and close to 2,000
birds over the 30 years we did this.
Neither my adult birds or babies are exposed to mosquitoes, wild birds, or wild
animals. They are away from chemical spray as much as possible. We have geckos,
anoles, and tree frogs in the aviary to control insects. All cages have toys,
plus wooden, and cement perches. We feed a seed mix, plus a variety of
fruits, vegetables, flowers, and some pellets.
All my babies are pulled when the youngest bird in the clutch is 14 days old.
They are hand fed by us in our home.
