 Home / About / Who we are

Bird keepers Society was established in the year 2006 with 6 likeminded hobbyists. Within a couple of years the society earned members all over India. In the beginning the members with lesser knowledge in scientific bird keeping and we conducted selected aviary visits to learn deeply in bird keeping. We collected the knowledge of choosing a healthy bird, its quarentine, caging, diet, caring, breeding, socialization, combinations and new mutations. The members of the society improved the standard of bird keeping by adopting the scientific method of bird keeping. Selective breeding or combinations and application of genetics enriched the member’s aviaries with a lot of mutations.


We published magazines to spread the grasped knowledge to our members, most of them are beginners. It was the first authentic journal in an Indian language, spoken by 30 million people. It narrated the most popular birds kept by bird keepers all over the world. One of the articles was written by an English breeder and writer named Fred Wright for the beginners in bird keeping. It is a great achievement for agapornis breeders in India; the society is affiliated to BVA INTERNATIONAL. Through this we hope the society can upgrade the standard of agapornis breeding in India.

There is a monthly gathering in Trivandrum, the capital city of Kerala- the GOD'S OWN COUNTRY, to discuss various subjects related to bird keeping and also arranged study classes on bird keeping for the members.
