Welcome to Sprouting Organics

This website was created as an all-in-one guide for caring for parrots. 
In 2013 we brought our first conure, Hilo, home.

We had no previous experience with parrots and soon realized that they are complex pets who need a lot of attention and care.
In doing research we realized that there weren’t many great websites that gave clear direction for proper care of parrots, so a few months after bringing Hilo home, Sprouting Organics was born.  
This website serves as a guide in caring for parrots in ways that they need to be cared for through my own experiences and research.
Since the launch of this site, we’ve welcomed Hana a lineolated parakeet, and Poppy a Green Cheek Conure into our home.
