McDonald Bird Farm was started in 1975 by James and Brenda McDonald. They were looking for something that would allow Brenda to quit her job and stay at home to raise a family. Having been raised on a farm, James’s love for birds and animals came naturally. Their first aviary was a small building built in the backyard. Their knack for breeding birds quickly paid off, and by 1978 they had a total of 7 separate buildings devoted to breeding parakeets. They began shipping birds nationwide and their expansion continued over the next few years by building 3 more 24’x 56’ aviaries while expanding the breeding operation to include cockatiels, finches, lovebirds, canaries, doves, etc.
James McDonald soon became a recognized authority in the pet bird industry and was asked by the veterinary classes of Texas A&M University to come and lecture on breeding pet birds. This he did on an annual basis until his time would no longer permit it. He has also spoken on exotic birds at numerous seminars and events throughout the country, including symposiums at such places as Purdue University. James has authored many articles and has published
two books on the subject of exotic birds. He has been written about in newspapers and magazines, and has appeared on television and news programs featuring the exotic bird business.
James and Brenda briefly retired and relocated to
the beautiful Texas hill country in August, 2000, only to see that
retirement wasn’t what they wanted after all. Within a couple of
years they had re-established themselves in the exotic bird
business, once again shipping only the highest quality birds to
customers nationwide. The philosophy and principals which have
characterized McDonald Bird Farm since their beginning in 1975
remain unchanged. They remain committed to providing their customers
with the highest quality and healthiest birds available on the
market today. History has shown that these types of birds provide
their customers with the highest returns on their investments.
