Preventative Healthcare

Retailers can help bird owners understand that cleanliness, attentiveness to safety and a little caution go a long way in helping pet birds live long, healthy lives.

Bird Watch

Observing and noting changes in a bird’s behavior can tell you volumes about its health and condition, if you understand what to look for.

Have Wings, Will Travel

Retailers can be a source of guidance and information–as well as product purveyors–for consumers who plan to travel with their pet birds.

The Mess Stops Here

Keeping the bird area neat and tidy should be a top priority. Fortunately, there are plenty of products on the market to help accomplish this.

Breeding Season

Retailers that breed birds or encourage customers and employees to breed birds can help cultivate a steady supply of livestock to sell in their stores.

A Clean Bill of Health

Retailers and their staff need to be sure that customers understand how to clean cages, accessories and the surrounding area to ensure the health of their pet birds.

Eating Like a Bird

Birds require varied, species-specific diets to be healthy, and retailers can help their bird-owning customers make the best possible food choices for their pets.

Thinking Outside the Cage

Get customers to view wild birds as their personal “outdoor pets” and watch sales of premium wild bird seed mixes soar.

A Fresh Look at Marketing

Mastering just a few basic marketing and merchandising techniques can help a business take off and its bird-related sales to soar.

Something to Talk About

Many factors, including a bird’s species, age and gender, as well as how well it is trained, will determine whether pet birds will talk.

Selling the Essentials

Making sure bird owners have all the necessary products to care for their pets will make for happy, loyal customers.

Not Just Playing Around

Toys can play a pivotal role in providing the stimulation and entertainment that many pet birds crave and need.

Vital Signs

Retailers who can read the signs pointing to an illness can help bird owners take appropriate action at the right time.

On Best Behavior

Pet specialty retailers can give bird owners the information they need to encourage healthy behaviors in their pets and avoid disruptive ones.

Home Sweet Home

Having a broad selection of bird cages and the ability to help customers choose the best home for their pets is a great strategy for encouraging customer loyalty and sales.

Squeaky Clean

Retailers weigh in on the best methods and products to use for keeping a bird's environment spic and span.

Fat Versus Fiction

Bird owners need to understand the importance of a balanced diet with the appropriate amounts of fat, protein, carbohydrates and nutrients.

Sales Go Wild

Why carry wild bird products? The numbers say it all.

In Case of Emergency

Well-informed retailers can help bird owners be prepared to handle pet birds' most common medical emergencies.

Marketing Your Wares

When you're selling pet birds, sometimes the best marketing tool is the one with feathers.
