One thought on “BIRD MARTS

  1. thank you for sharing that info; I was unaware and horrified. I had gone to a “Bird Expo” in March and was horrified at the condition of the birds. The same group is having another Expo in October. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to go and see if things had improved at the Sebring Bird Hoarding issue or not. I think its best I don’t go. Not sure what to do if I see neglected, plucked birds again but certainly don’t want to endanger my fids. I thought it was safe to buy toys from Non bird vendors…. think I’ll just keep making my own!
