I'm not sure what giving your name and e-mail address
guarantees to the breeder as people lie and deceive others
all the time. Anyone can make up a name and e-mail address
to suit their own needs.
I am a bird breeder and you would NOT be touring my facility.
I have nothing to hide but I don't want strangers
and "potential thieves" having visual access to my birds and
how they are kept.
Also, to say that you were permitted to view the brooding
area would also never happen here. Baby birds are very
susceptible to disease and illness. You may or may not
already have birds and could potentially be carrying a
problem to me.
You would be invited to the area in my home where I
introduce potential pet birds to prospective owners, but
that's as far as you would get.
To be angry with this person because your whims weren't
fulfilled tells me you are clueless when it comes to bird
Tell me this, would you refuse to buy a loaf of bread
because the bakery wouldn't let you see how it's made? I
didn't think so.
