After sharing our life with birds even as a child, we have been living with birds for over 40 years. We opened The Nature Chest Bird Shop in 1996. Although we no longer have any birds available for sale in our retail store, we occasionally help a bird in need of a new home find such a home. Adoption applications can be picked up at our retail store. We do not ship any birds.

We also do gentle bird grooming by appointment.

We operate a bird safe haven, "Nature's Nest", for abused or unwanted birds as well as birds who just need a new home due to various reasons. Birds we take in are referred to us by our local avian veterinarians, local animal shelter, or other local rescue groups. Birds are veterinarian checked and whenever possible, placed into new homes. Unfortunately, many birds we take in have been physically or mentally abused and are often no longer considered by many as acceptable "pets". Some may have permanent health/disability problems or serious behavior issues. Birds such as these are kept in a permanent safe home with us. Although the birds we have taken in are not for sale through our store, there is an adoption fee to help cover the cost of veterinary care for the birds looking for new homes through adoption. If you are interested in adopting a bird in need and would like to be put on our waiting list, please contact us for further information. Please note our adoption questionnaire is very detailed and precise in information necessary to meet our criteria for adoption. To be added to our waiting list you must live within 30 minutes driving distance of our facility because home inspections are required. Come in and meet some of the birds who have come to us at "Nature's Nest".

Our retail bird store does have some items not available on our website. If you are looking for something in particular, or have a special need, please let us know as we may have it available in our store or may be able to special order it for you. You can contact us at 800-816-2324 during our regular business hours noted below, or you can email us at any time.

We are located off Highway 31 in Decatur, Alabama.

Below you can take a virtual visit to our bird store located Decatur, Alabama. The Nature Chest Bird Shop has been in business since 1996. We are a full line bird specialty store in a retail shopping area with other retailers. We maintain the actual inventory that we sell which ships from our retail store. We pride ourselves on recommending the products we sell because we use them ourselves in our store and in our home for our own personal birds.

Bird Food, whether it is in the form of seed mixes, pellets, extruded foods, or combinations, is the source of life. We are always looking for new and exciting foods for birds. Our birds eat several brands of different foods and like most birds, some have their favorite foods. We carry only foods that we feel are of the best quality, and nutrition, for birds from Budgies to Macaws. Manufacturers must maintain the highest standards for their products to be available through our store. We try hard to make available a range of foods at varying prices so that all bird owners can afford to feed the best to their birds. We try to provide something for everyone, whether you are looking for organic or naturally good wholesome foods. We continually spend time checking out the latest health aids and supplements for birds. Not all health supplements are created equal, some have no actual benefit at all to our birds. We strive to research and find vitamins and health aids with proven track records and we use many of the products on our own birds, especially on some of the rescue birds we have that have permanent health issues related to their past care or lack thereof. We also ask our customers for feedback on products they use to help us stock items that really are of good use for the birds we all care for.

And, what visit, virtual or in person, to a bird store worth its weight in anything, would not have at least one good sized toy wall, or more, to showcase the latest fun bird toys for customers to choose from.

To also add some fun to all our bird loving customers, we maintain a growing parrot themed gift selection.

We hope you have enjoyed your small tour of our store. We will add more photos as we have time. After all, we still have to show you the large treat selection we carry, pictures of all those new toys we are trying to find room to display, and also many new gift items we are receiving weekly for your garden and home.

Please come again!
