!!! IMPORTANT INFO FOR SELLERS !!!
During the Zwolle Bird Market, enthusiasts can wander for hours along the many, legally permitted, birds that are offered for sale.
In addition to the huge collection of tens of thousands of birds, many supplies are also offered for sales, such as books, cages, lighting and food. The various special clubs – such as those of the shape and size canaries, zebra finches, Japanese gulls and parakeets – are also present.
The delivered birds are strictly controlled. If the birds do not meet the required conditions, they will be refused at the entrance. Also, there are two veterinarians present throughout the day, who keep a close eye on everything. Runners are not allowed on the Zwolse Vogelmarkt. Birds must be offered for sale in proper cages and the cages must not be overcrowded. This is strictly monitored.
