We have beautiful rainforest birds that we use for educational purposes in Missouri/Kansas. They require a clean environment (that's hosed down daily) and fresh veg's & fruits cut, and bowls washed. They live in a beautiful room of their own attached to the side of a barn.
There's a slightly sloped cement floor with a large drain in it. The floor and bottoms of cages are hosed off, the food that's on the floor is scooped up & fed to chickens & peacocks.
It takes 3-4 hours OR 2 hours if you have a friend help. We need somebody 2 mornings a week. You'll learn so much and have a wonderful time. The birds are very loving, talk, sing,do tricks and LOVE to make new friends. If interested you could help with doing bird shows. This could lead to YOU doing the shows and making a percentage of what income the shows bring.
It'd be fun to have a friend share half the responsibilities, get the work done faster, and have more playtime with the birds. So if you want to TEAM up with a friend, that'd be great! We are very flexible.
Birds include parrots, toucans and owls.
