    Forgive me, have a bunch of questions about South African aviculture!!

    What are the export/import laws like for South Africa? Are you able to trade with other African countries? I've seen only about a handful of aviculturists (yourself included) online from SA, I take it there are many more who just are not online? What your laws regarding native birds? I know there are several francolin species & guineafowl subspecies in South Africa, do they prohibit you from keeping native birds?

    Finally, I will admit, my favorite South African export of all time....... Charlize Theron!!!

    hi

    i m not yet on the import and export calibre yet but theire are breeders which done it and we have laws here like the quaratine laws etc but the problem is the laws is sometimes not guarded and people do what they like. Trade with other african countries are only a couple of countries, I think namibie doing well a ex south african province, Yes I beliieve their is other breeders which I do not know and good importers but you guys in the states have more and cheaper species I think. South African only start import birds in the 90 s after the sanctions lifted thats why we behind but I think we do well so far because here are some breeders with the south american galiformes species. Yes if you keep native birds you must have permits some guineas which is domesticated you don t need one or any mutation of any kind you don t need it. We do a lot have francolin species here and I think to guinea species which one is the crested guinea. West africa is also a good importer where the stone partridge, yellow spurfowl, crowned cranes and arabian partidges is been imported but this birds value drop rapidly because the lesser colour in them, ornamental stays the favourite...

    Charlize theron is a good export i think better than arnold vosloo
