Until you found out what the import and quarantine fees would be...........

Several breeds I don't recognize there. Very interesting.

The Los Angelse Pigeon Club has a kind of bizarre--parking lot pigeon sale each month from about mid afternoon until dark, before the meeting. It's not a club thing, it just happens....Perhaps othe PC's do the same. I know a lot of clubs have swap days a few times a year.

That is so nice. I wish we have one like that here in San Diego.
You do. The San Diego Metro Club has a meeting every month, on a Saturday I think. Maybe George Simon knows what the dates are. Usually severl birds for sale, but not a great variety.

Thanks! I've been there. LOL! One guy was selling homers and rollers. I was actually thinking of a bazaar like atmosphere like the ones above. I actually got my free birds from George there last Saturday.

Only trouble is, here in the US, the local city fathers would probably either outlaw the sale or want to sell business licenses to each vendor at an outrageous price.

Then the state would want to collect sales taxes, and the feds would insist on checking each bird to make sure it meets specifications that they would enact. The building department would require building permits for the cages, DOT would have to certify carry boxes, and so on.

Then there would have to be police on duty to keep the animal rights whackos from inciting trouble, and so on and so forth. Just isn't worth the trouble......

risingstarsfans,

I know what you mean. At swapmeet it is not legal to sell dogs and cats, but birds seem to be ok. I wen there once, but I only saw those things that Petsmart sells--parakeets, lovebirds, etc.

Birds at swap meets here in So Cal such as the one in La Mirada is not a pretty thing to see .. nor is it pretty to see the birds being sold in the parking lot at the LAPC meetings unless things have drastically changed. I am NOT saying that the LAPC sanctions this at all .. just that it happens. There are birds CRAMMED into cages with no food, no water, and being sold for a buck or two apiece. It's pitiful and very sad and cruel to the birds ..
