The Creation of the Grey Parrot By Gloria Ridgway Submitted by Diane Christiansen
The Creators sat by the edge of sea,
Their shining new world a joy to see
There were all the beasts of every kind;
Herbs, grasses and trees and fruiting vine.
But somehow, they noticed a lack was there,
A missing’something’ to move through the air…

IT IS ALL ABOUT THE BIRDS!!
“I was fortunate enough to make the trip to Chicago to visit the Windy City Parrot store.
They have everything from nest supplies to food to toys.
Big toys, small toys and every toy in between. What they don’t have in stock they will look into ordering in for your bird’s pleasure. I saw bags of food from small 2 pound bags to the large 25 lb bags.
They have Harrisons, Zupreem and Lafebers Nutriberries galore and more.
They have a huge variety of bird treats available.
All foods are factory sealed, no open bins, no moths.
They offer cages from finch and cockatiel size through to Amazon and Macaw size.
Prices are so reasonable even the penny pinchers wouldn’t mind paying.
The quality of their products for the prices is just unbelievable.
And if you are willing to make the drive it’s even better yet.
For one, you get to shop once you get there and two there is no shipping charge on cash and carry products. Which brings me to this…they are also willing to ship most anything in their store.
They stock Avian Disinfectants, Avian Safe Insect Traps, and Poop-Off.
Everything they have is bird safe.
The disinfectant is effective against over 50 pathogens which include viruses, fungi, and bacteria.
It is odorless as well and safe to clean cages with.
A quart bottle of Pet Focus Concentrate makes 32 gallons.
The proprietors of Windy City Parrots are Mitch Rezman and his lovely wife Catherine Tobsing.
While shopping Catherine was great help she handed out shopping baskets and gave price quotes and helped choose appropriate toys for each bird.
I ordered a huge cage online and upon arrival at their store decided it was way too large.
Mitch didn’t think twice about helping select a cage size better suited to fit my home, it even cut his sale price but didn’t hurt his feelings any.
He then went out of his way to select additional food dishes and perches to fit my birds properly.
Then Mitch helped me out with the cage and helped load it onto my truck and tied it securely.
A big THANK YOU is extended from me to Mitch and Catherine for their service, much appreciated.
I would definitely recommend a stop in if you are in Chicago it sure is worth the trip, if you are too far away, visit the web site at WindyCityParrot.com .
After 8 years of bird shows, Catherine launched WindyCityParrot.com just before Midnight December 31st, 2001. By 6:00 AM New Years day 2002, Windy City Parrot, received it’s first web order.
Since then we’ve had more than 8,000,000 web visitors and fulfilled more than 80,000 orders
