About Us

Bernard & Barbara Palmer have been keeping and breeding birds for over 50 years, they started with Budgerigars, and started to breed Finches and Canaries. Both Barbara & Bernard are panel judges for Zebra Finches, Bengalese Finches and Foreign Finches, and were honoured by being able to judge the last national bird show to be held at the NEC.

In 2002 when Defra introduced the new movement of birds certificate we were please to be the first bird farm to be awarded the certificate, recently the farm has also been awarded the Balia Reg Certificate for movement of birds anywhere in Europe, these Certificates hang in the showrooms at Carey Cottage.

Palmers Mail Order & Birds is a family business, Bernard & Barbara are helped by their daughter Jeanette who herself is a very experienced Birdkeeper.
