John took over full control of the business in 1997 after the passing away of his father Bob, who was in his time, the leading bird dealer in Adelaide and highly respected throughout Australia.
The business has followed the family theme of an excellent range of birds, an extensive array of accessories and cages, plus ongoing friendly service. It consists of a birdroom containing 54 display cabinets, 28 outside aviaries and 2 covered-in areas, one containing a huge display of feed, accessories and toys and the other a great variety of cages/aviaries suitable for single birds or small colonies, all in a garden setting. The business caters for the single bird owner up to the enthusiastic collector and John is more than happy in obtaining specific birds on request.
He provides a great range of hand-raised birds and is dedicated to providing after sales service to customers, whether they buy a canary or a macaw and prides himself on the cleanliness of his premises.
John invites old and new customers to drop in for a look around and a chat.
