While it's possible it's just a language barrier, and that English is tough for them, the way that message is phrased really reminds me of all the bird scams out there... Plus, every month? If not a scam possibly looking for chicks to use as feeders? I used to have pythons... sometimes people would ask me if I fed them birds
Personally, I don't care for that reply and would probably ignore it. Always trust your gut

Hmm... that's kinda shady... unless they own a bird store, there's no reason for them to buy birds every month on a regular basis? I would wait it out, see if they ask again and go from there?

I agree.. I'd wait. It does seem a little weird!


Thanks Becca!

You also could flat out ask them why they would want birds every month... sounds to me like he is selling them and making a profit...most likely not giving a flying fig who gets them and how they are treated there.
