For those of us who are against breeding, I want to make sure that everyone understands the importance of supporting this issue fully. If we are opposed to breeding, then we should not be supporting any product that is connected to breeding and especially not Mass Breeding. I discovered that many were unaware that Kaytee Products and Kaytee Preferred Birds were one and the same company. If you are purchasing Kaytee Bird Foods, then you are helping to pay for mass breeding.
Large-scale “parrot mill” breeding operations (such as Kaytee Preferred Birds, which supplies PETsMART), produce thousands of chicks each year, with a goal of producing even more! They have a network of breeders that mass-produce both parent-raised and hand-fed birds, which are transferred to hand-feeding facilities and stores at an early age.
Here are many links with references to Kaytee Preferred Birds, if anyone is still questioning the fact that Kaytee not only supports, but is involved in mass breeding.
Please pay close attention to the sign at 0:04 on this video, it clearly states “Independent Field Research Farm for Kaytee Products”
