Recommendations for buying birds

  • Always put your new birds in a safe carry box.
  • Always supply suitable food and moisture of some sort. (e.g. cucumber as water spills everywhere)
  • When arriving home place birds in a quiet, bright and warm place.
  • Treat your birds with an electrolyte (e.g. SPARK from Vetafarm) as per directions.
  • Treat your birds for worms if they haven't been wormed recently (ask the seller). Wormers are available at the trade stands.
  • Release your birds into main aviary only if they are looking fit and healthy.
  • Release your birds early in the morning so they can get used to their new surroundings.
  • Spread some seed or suitable food around the cage floor. New birds don’t know where the seed tray is first off and will land on the ground.
  • Keep an eye on new arrivals to see if they have settled in OK for the first week at least.
  • Give your birds a green and varied diet and don’t overcrowd.
  • Ask the seller what diet the birds were on.
  • Ask the seller for their contact details.
