Downloadable Care Sheets from the FBL

Foreign Bird League members have created a small library of basic care sheets for a variety of Foreign Birds. These are useful to beginners and existing birdkeepers moving to a new species that they have never kept before. These are intended to be an introduction to the species and we urge you to research well before you purchase your chosen species. The advice given is not the only way to keep these birds, but the methods used and the advice given has been successful for us in the past. Historical articles previously printed in our magazine - Foreign Birds - have in some cases been used as the basis for the information included.

This feature is new and additional species will be included in the future. Copyright for the work remains with both the Foreign Bird League and the original authors and cannot be reproduced either in part or full in any form of media. However, feel free to download a copy for your own use. Foreign Bird League members can distribute copies of these sheets to prospective customers of surplus birds, but must be in their entirety including the FBL logos.

If you feel that you can add to our library of care sheet please e-mail your work to FBL.EDITOR@GMAIL.COM . The advice should be about 700 -750 words for it to fit onto a single sheet.

Click on the Links below to download the care sheet you require - they are in PDF format and should be capable of being opened by any computer.
