I ask for deposits for a few reasons:
1) Helps me weed out the flakers. Many times I've had people say
they want a bird. Email or call me multiple times a week with
questions and then when the time comes to pay you can never get
a hold of them.
2) If someone is willing to put down a non refundable deposit
then I know they're serious about buying one of my birds.
3) it's not fair on other potential clients to have someone tell
you they want a bird and then 10 weeks later when the bird is
weaned and they haven't put a deposit down and they tell you
they no longer want the bird. In the meantime I may have turned
away a few other customers that would have wanted a bird.
