Welcome to Parrot Stars!

Parrot Stars is so much more than just any other pet shop. Located in the heart of Arlington Heights, Illinois, our mission is to enhance aviculture through education, nutrition, conservation and a mutual love for birds.

Education: At Parrot Stars, we want to ensure that you foster a successful relationship with your new feathered friend(s). We strive to support you by answering your avian-related questions and provide you with expert tips and advice on how to better care for your feathered friend! In addition, for anyone interested in learning more about how to love and maintain their feathered companion, we also offer a dedicated classroom where we host educational programs and seminars that feature avian experts in the fields of conservation, medicine, nutrition, behavior, and more!

Nutrition: Variety is key in keeping your feathered friend healthy! In the past, it wasn’t clear as to what the diet of wild parrots, toucans, and other commonly kept birds consisted of. Now, we better understand what an avian diet should look like! Our goal is to help bird owners consistently move towards highly diverse whole food diets. As we now know, natural, whole foods are the best diets for our feathered friends!

Conservation: We are passionate about conservation. A portion of every purchase will go directly toward conservation efforts happening in the natural habitats of parrots and other types of avian research. We work closely with various groups that support conservation to help raise awareness on the importance of protecting these amazing creatures in the wild.

A Mutual Love for Birds: We breed, hand raise, and socialize a wide variety of avian species. We treat our breeder birds with the same amount of love and respect as our chicks and adopted adult birds. All of our birds receive spacious and clean housing, nutrient-rich food, and constant love and attention from our highly trained staff. Our chicks are hand reared, meaning we extensively work with them to complete their feeding and socialization through weaning and beyond. We ensure that each bird has adequate socialization in order for them to become successful feathered companions. We also provide a safe home for our adopted adult birds. Often times, adult birds may fear humans or will be uncomfortable coming out of their cage. We work with them to rebuild their trust in humans so we can help them find their forever homes.

We want to work with you and assist you in adopting the species that as an ideal fit for your unique family dynamics. Our goals are to help our beloved feathered friends find their forever homes and of course, help you nurture a successful relationship with your feathered companion.
