Q: How do I become a licensed bird breeder, and is there a certain age you have to be to become one?
Sandee Molenda explains:
Currently, there are no Federal regulations that require bird breeders to be licensed. However, some states have certain licensing requirements for bird breeders and/or dealers, anyone who sells birds. Georgia, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Colorado come immediately to mind as states that have regulations for bird breeders and/or bird sellers. Check with your state’s Department of Agriculture and your state’s Department of Fish and Game for regulations in your state.
