I have boarded my birds with Al-Mar for over l0 years. I have never had a problem with them. They would NEVER do anything to harm your pet. In fact the only way to get your birds nails or wings clipped is to ask them to do it. I had to board my birds with them the last time and one was sick. I asked them if they could give him his medicine while I was gone and they were very kind to continue to give it to him. When I picked him up one week later he was better. The vet told me that most places would not have gone out of their way to do this and they didn't charge anything more for the extra care! If you want good care while you are gone this is the place to go!

Wonderful Birds, Kind, Honest, a Wealth of Information

From the first time I stepped into Al-Mar and mentioned I was considering getting a pet parakeet, to last week when I picked up more food, I've enjoyed Al-Mar. The owners are very wonderful, honest, and knowledgeable people.r r They explained to me what things to look for in getting a bird, the way to feed them (they blend their own seed mixes), what vegetables and fruits to feed, what toys are safe, what aren't. Foods and toxins that might harm the birds, how to train them.r r I went in twice before I actually purchased my first bird, and they were very patient and kind with me each time.r When I took home my new baby, Tori, I had him eating out of my hand that very evening. Every bird I've purchased from them since (we have 8!) has been healthy, full of personality, and easy to incorporate into the flock. Within an hour they are socializing with the rest of the birds.r r I defend them when it comes to dust. Bird dander and seed hulls are a challenge to keep up with. You can dust every day and two hours later it's back. And I clean every day, and it's a mess again before you know it.r r I have Al-Mar trim my birds nails on a regular basis. I don't like to do it myself, and they are always great about it. Their rates are the best around, if you ask me.r r I've been to the chain stores. I can look at the birds there and spot old birds, or birds with trouble. In fact I've pointed those troubles out to workers in those stores. I've asked questions of those workers and they can't answer them. Al-Mar always can. In fact, I've now educated some of the chain store employees, and even some of their customers on occasion. People now ask ME questions.r r Mom & Pop stores are fighting to stay in business in these modern times, with chain stores, and now a bad economy. It's important to give them the opportunity to share their expertise.r r Most people are happy to eat at a Mom & Pop type deli, but they don't shop the small businesses. I love Barnes & Noble, but I loved Schwartz's too. The glamour of the big box stores sometimes overshadows those small specialty shops. r r Al-Mar is a family-run business. And they make me feel like family every time I visit.r r I have 8 incredible, healthy, happy, social birds. I wouldn't get them anywhere else!

long time customer

This is the place you want to go if you are in the market for a bird. They are very helpful and know their birds. We bought a "male" parakeet from another shop and couldn't understand why the bird was not social. When we called this store, they told us to bring the bird in. The moment they saw the bird, they told us the problem was that "he" was a female. We have since purchased a male parakeet from this store (which they guarenteed as male) and he is the sweetest, loving little pet you could ever want. We have had him over a year and he is a totally healthy and happy little guy. The bird food is high quality and worth going the extra distance to get.

Best Birds and Service!

We purchased our birds from Al-Mar last year and not only are the birds healthly and fun to have around the continued service that Kay and Ralph (the owners of AL-Mar) is outstanding. Their hand mixed food is the best in the market and if you have birds you have to get them the oats that they sell ! Your birds will thank you.

It's apparent that the custome...

It's apparent that the customer never was in the shop. The birds are not over crowded. In fact there are only 2 birds in the cage at any given time. They are very knowlegable because they raise their own birds. Unlike the large stores that get them shipped in from bird farms. I've found the store small but cozy. The birds are in an area when you first walk into the store that is lit well. I myself have been going to this store for over 20 years and have never seen a sick animal! They take pride in the loving care they give. I would recommend this store over any of the big ones.
