Vital Signs

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

Not Just Playing Around

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

Selling the Essentials

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
