Mission and Policy Statement
    Welcome to the Birdmart.com Chatboard Network. We've provided this forum as an on-line tool for parrot enthusiasts everywhere. We invite parrot hobbyists across the planet to utilize this networking resource to its fullest potential.

    When posting to the forum, please be mindful of the volume of posts that come through our board. This chatboard is at its best when we are able to preserve as long as possible those posts most beneficial to our community. For this reason Birdmart.com reserves the right to remove any post after a time, at our sole discretion. If you feel a particular post should be saved, for example a toy or recipe idea that you feel belongs in our resources, please write us at [email protected] and we'll do what we can to preserve this item.
