Harold - Rooster Chicken tutu
Dr. Kelly Gan's pet: Harold - The Next Top Rooster wearing his tutu.

Chicken Tutus!!!!!

Yes they're a thing!!!!  OK, so they may have started out as a fun way to prevent a chicken pecking at a back injury... but they're so awesome they became a fashion statement at the Chicken-vet.

If you don't believe us just ask Harold.  He just won the 2023 title of Next Top Rooster and we thinks he wears his tutu at chicken -vet-Melbounrne very well.

If you want a tutu for your chickens make sure you visit our online store or clinic.

Furthermore, if you want to teach your chicken to dance, book in with our avian behaviourist or come to chicken school!!!

Also, we have expert chicken vets here, so get your chicken checked out at the Melbourne Chicken Vet.


Online Bird Shop - Bird Toys, Bird Perches, Bird and chicken Medications !!

We know how hard it is to find bird safe toys and Bird-Vet products On-line.  All our Avian  staff are more than a little obsessed with spoiling their own birds and the Melbourne-Bird-Vet quakers.  Consequently, our reception has become a fully stocked Bird-Pet-Store with an emphasis on some of the most amazing bird toys, bird perches and bird play-gyms that you will see.  If you can't find what you want - let  know.  The team at the Vet for birds are always looking for an excuse to get new products!

Events & Activities

The Pet Show Melbourne

Bird-Vet-Melbourne is always up to something!!!  Our entire expert avian veterinary team is actively engaged with Avian community events and  bird  rescues.  You will find us at major shows like The Pet Show or The Bird Lover's Expo.

We're constantly organising events too!  From Chicken Day (yep chickens in tutus is a thing!) to parrot school.

Keep an eye on the Bird Vet's  events page and follow us on social media if you want to find out what's next!!!
