A New Breed of Bird Mart

The bird fair will feature games and vendors showcasing products including toys, cages, supplies and art.

In response to concerns about impulse purchases of birds and the potential for spreading disease when a number of birds are in one place, the Charlotte Metrolina Cage Bird Society (CMCBS) of Charlotte, North Carolina created a new "breed" of bird mart for its November 4, 2000 event. The name "bird mart" implies merchandising or selling birds. However, at its bird mart birds will not be sold. The bird fair will feature games and vendors showcasing products including toys, cages, supplies and art. You will be able to see some live birds at species seminars for cockatiels, greys, Amazons and macaws. This allows you to learn more about the species that interest you. There will also be a large raffle at the event (no birds will be raffled). You won't go home with a bird, but you will glean lots of information, make new friends and have a great day. Why this new type of event? "Because we care," stated a representative for the CMCBS. In addition to caring about local birds, the club donates all proceeds to worthy avian causes, such as viral research at the University of Georgia. To date, they have raised and donated more than $20,000. To find out more, contact (704) 580-3054 or (704) 364-7529,, or visit http://CMCBS.Virtualave.Net. Attend the event: CMCBS 2nd Annual Bird Fair, Piedmont Kennel Club, 13607 Choate Circle, Charlotte, NC; November 4 from 9 am to 4 pm.

Most sellers of birds at the bird marts in Fl are breeders who are concerned with the health of their birds,the general public goes to these to see different species of birds if birds are no longer sold at these the public will be forced to buy only from pet stores a lot who have no knowledge of birds will sell the wrong bird to people who do not know what bird will be best for a family.
