Welcome on our website where you can find more information and pictures on our hobby. Our main interest is on Cracidae ("those big black birds from Latin-America"). But as you can see in the birds section, it is not only Cracids we keep. 

If you have any questions don't hesitate to email me for further info.

Off course we will try to update this site as much as possible with latest info and pictures.


Recently we started our own foundation, the Phurukuna Foundation vzw. Because we wanted to do more than "just" keeping and breeding our animals, but also giving it an extra goal with links to in- and ex-situ protection of the species we love the most. 

Few years ago we constructed a brooder room with a greenhouse on top of it to house some of the birds. The greenhouse construction I purchased from a locale garden centre that stopped his activities. It took a lot of time and effort to move the whole structure to my place, rebuilt it while changing size and heights.

It is up and running now, but never finished ... The birds that are already in (Roul-roul patridges, Montezuma Quails, some Cracids, small African finches,... ), enjoy it every minute, they have a lot of space to discover and a lot of things to do. And I must admit I also enjoy my birds a lot more in a setting like this.
