Nell’s Nest is an online business run by husband and wife team, William & Kirsty with the help of their two children. Based in Havelock North, NZ.

Kirsty: Animals have always been a passion and love in my life from the beginning. Particularly with birds as it all started with one pet budgie at the age of 6. I went on to breed and hand raise budgies and cockatiels. We now have 3 pairs king parrots which I’m very excited to work with! Also our pets are 4 year old hand raised king parrot, Frodo and 9 year old Husky, Baikal.

My passion of breeding and raising birds quickly expanded into finding quality products to support happy and healthy birds, so Nell’s Nest was established in January 2014 stocking avian products and pet products were available on order.

In 2019 now with our children 7, 5 and one on the way, we’ve gradually made the switch from bird products to all pet products and have access to 1000’s of fantastic supplies.

Our family are huge animal lovers and we will go out of our way to bring you quality products at competitive prices. If you have friends or family without internet access or who aren’t confident in using websites to make purchases we are more than happy to discuss their pets needs over the phone or drop in if they are close by to show them what we have on offer.

We'd like to thank all of our loyal customers who have supported Nell’s Nest over the past few years, it’s because of you that we are able to continue doing what we love.

To our new customers - we look forward to hearing about your pets and how we can help you now and in the future.

Thank you all for helping us make Nell's Nest a success!

Kirsty is amazing!! She is very knowledgeable and is always happy to give advice! I had planned to get one of her hand raised budgie babies but ended up rescuing my baby boy from a bad situation. A decision she applauded not discouraged like other breeders.
I have placed a big order with Kirsty to spoil my new baby and my 1 year old gorgeous cockatiel. She was VERY patient with me as I was quite indecisive and helped me picked the best options for my feathered family.
I already have a big list for my next order with her and will no longer be visiting pet stores to order my seeds and toys as she provides the personal touch with great prices!
Highly recommend Nell's Nest to everyone!!
