Think Outside the Bars

To achieve sales success with large, expensive items like bird cages, retailers need to start by examining their strategy for getting customers in the door.

Best Behavior

Training with positive reinforcement early and often in a parrot’s life is key to raising a happy and well-behaved bird.

Expanding the Flock

The Bird Enjoyment and Advantage Koalition’s new myBird campaign aims to breathe new life into the exciting world of bird ownership by increasing awareness of the joys and benefits of having a feathered friend.

At Your Service

Retailers can seize an opportunity to diversify their customer base and revenue stream by offering small pets the same types of services provided for dogs and cats.

Bird on Board

With the right preparation, bird owners can take their feathered friends along for the ride.

Small Parrot Success

With parakeets and cockatiels making up the vast majority of bird sales in the U.S., retailers need to be prepared to inform and supply new parrot owners to help them be successful with these species.

Hatching Success

By providing invaluable support to breeders, knowledgeable retailers can secure a supply of local birds and grow their customer base.

Catering to Conures

With their big, playful personalities, conures can make an excellent pet for both experienced and first-time bird owners.

Small But Mighty

Parakeets and cockatiels may be diminutive in size, but retailers that are able to sell them stand to make big sales while gaining loyal customers.

Go Wild

Retailers should keep in mind the animal lovers who are as passionate about the wild birds that visit their backyards as they are about their in-home pets.

Boosting Bird Products

Elevating merchandising and marketing strategies can have a direct impact on a retailer’s bottom line.

Catering to Avian Appetites

In order to feed pet birds properly, owners need to be as particular about how they feed their avian charges as they are about what they feed them.
