Advertise in Bird Shop

Advertising in Bird Shop is FREE for all keepers and breeders of pet and aviary birds.

Simply e-mail your advert to us. The advert will be posted on the Avizandum Bird shop website within 48 hours – all for FREE!

Please include an “advertisement title” for your advert. For example: “Breeding Ringnecks” or “Adult Pairs”. Please also include your name and town where (or near which) you live and the prices of your birds. Please e-mail, phone us once you have sold your birds. The adverts will be deleted on the last day of every month.

Avizandum readers have over the years stuck to the following policy:

They give their surname, the place where they live,e-mail addresses and phone numbers. They give prices for their birds. They do not advertise birds they do not have. They try very hard to remember to let us know once birds have been sold, so that their advert does not cause unnecessary phoning! It will be very easy and particularly important to remove adverts off our site once your birds have been sold. We request all advertisers to continue to uphold this policy.

s/s – surgically sexed

m/c – micro chipped

About the Magazine

The Avizandum is South Africa’s only magazine for keepers and breeders of pet an aviary birds. Going into its 26th year of publication, Avizandum contains articles from local and international professionals on aviculture; avian management; breeding of parrots, finches, and other species of birds; nutrition and feeding; health and disease; latest news and conservation; and much more. It is a high quality magazine that the purchaser can be proud to own. Avizandum is considered a reference, meaning that issues are kept by the purchaser and are referred back to, even 10 years later, for information. This benefits the advertisers as adverts have a long-term effect and are not seen once-off.

Avizandum is also unique in that it is fully bilingual, with all articles translated into Afrikaans by a knowledgeable birdkeeper, to reach wider audiences across the country.
