Become A Licensed Bird Breeder

How do I get my license to breed birds?

Q: How do I become a licensed bird breeder, and is there a certain age you have to be to become one?

Linda RubinSandee Molenda explains:

Currently, there are no Federal regulations that require bird breeders to be licensed. However, some states have certain licensing requirements for bird breeders and/or dealers, anyone who sells birds. Georgia, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Colorado come immediately to mind as states that have regulations for bird breeders and/or bird sellers. Check with your state’s Department of Agriculture and your state’s Department of Fish and Game for regulations in your state.

A good idea to have some standards for breeders. I used a high quality shop that sold birds that were healthy for years and lived to be old birds. Since their shop closed, I have not found a store in my city that has anywhere the quality of bird that that shop had. They get ill, and some of it is very serious. They also do not live near as long as that original shop I used.
