M & D Bird Farm is proud to serve you!
M & D Bird Farm was founded in July of 2002 by Terri Sherwood (Martin), who began breeding Cockatiels and later expanded into other breeds, such as Parakeets, Conures, Senegals, and Amazons. This proved to be a niche in lower Delaware and Maryland Eastern Shore to provide hand-fed, tame pet birds, that no one else was offering in the region. Over time, Terri grew a successful business, offering breeds of all kinds. After over 20 years in the bird business, Terrican now relax and enjoy the fruits of her labor with her husband, Danton as well as grow her bird grooming business.
With the help of Terri's cousin, Lin Martin and his wife Lydia, who will now be the new business owners, M & D Bird Farm will be able to continue providing hand-fed, tame birds that its known to offer--from finches to Macaws, in all sizes and price ranges, including the supplies needed to get new and experienced bird owners started off right.

Toys, Cages, & Accessories
Bird toys are essential for the physical and mental well-being of our feathered friends. Toys provide stimulation, exercise, and entertainment, which are crucial for a bird's physical health. Birds need to move and play to maintain their muscle tone and keep their minds active. Toys also help prevent boredom, which can lead to destructive behaviors such as feather picking and aggression.
Additionally, toys can encourage natural behaviors, such as foraging and preening, which can enhance a bird's quality of life. Therefore, providing a variety of toys is crucial for the overall health and happiness of pet birds.
Here at M & D Bird Farm, we offer a variety of toys for you bird. Call or stop in to see our current inventory!
Bird cages are important for the safety and well-being of pet birds. They provide a secure and comfortable living space where birds can eat, drink, play, and rest.
Bird cage sizes are an important consideration when choosing a cage for your avian friend. The size of the cage should be appropriate for the size of the bird and allow it to move around freely. A cage that is too small can cause stress and health problems for the bird. It is recommended to choose the largest cage possible, with enough room for the bird to spread its wings and move around comfortably.
Additionally, the cage should have perches and toys to keep the bird mentally and physically stimulated. Proper sizing and accessories can contribute to a happy and healthy life for your pet bird.

Determining the gender of a bird can be done through several methods. One of the most reliable ways is through DNA testing, which involves taking a blood sample or plucking a few feathers for analysis. Another way is through physical characteristics, such as the color of the feathers, size, and shape of the bird's body or beak. However, these physical traits can vary depending on the species of the bird, and it may require an expert to make a determination. Lastly, observing the bird's behavior during breeding season can also provide clues about its gender. Males may display courtship behaviors or sing songs to attract a mate, while females may build nests or lay eggs.
