Welcome! “Kaijuli ry - kaupparyhmä” ( www.facebook.com/groups/kaijulitori/ ) is a pet bird-related trading group maintained by Pet Bird Association “Lemmikkilinnut Kaijuli ry”. Our goal is to keep the group safe and trustworthy place of buying and selling birds and accessories, where admins and moderators are chosen by the board of the association.
In the group private persons can sell pet bird supplies, and other items that are related to the pet bird theme (for example, coffee cup with parrot picture on it). Selling and buying birds is allowed only through forum-link. The group is a market place only for indoor bird related things. This does not include other animals, nor birds that are mainly kept outdoors. (The group is not for selling / buying chickens, for example). This group is not for companies or private persons that sell birds/accessories for business. Commercial activities such as corporate advertising or regular resale is forbidden (with the exception of associations partners).
The group is only for selling/buying/giving, pet bird related discussion is done on Lemmikkilintu Kaijuli Ry Facebook group ( www.facebook.com/groups/kaijuli/ ) and on our forum ( forum.kaijuli.fi ).
The group is maintained by Pet Bird Association “Lemmikkilinnut Kaijuli ry”. That means group moderating follows the rules of the association, not opinion of individual moderator. Our rules are accepted by the board of our association.
The most important precept for moderators of the group is the well-being of the pet birds. This means our moderators will intervene if they notice anything that causes a lack in pet birds well-being (for example, too small cage). Primary function of intervenes like this is to help and give advice, not to judge.
The administrators and moderators of the group will do their best to ensure that no problems occur. However, the association cannot take responsibility for products or animals sold by other individuals.
Blocking moderators is forbidden.

# Selling bird cages #
Measurements of the cage (width, height and length) must be told when you are selling a cage. You can sell cages of any size but selling too small cages for actual habitation of pet birds is forbidden. Small cages can still be sold for temporary use, for example for bird recovering from sickness or as a travel cage. This must be told in the post. This rule must not be evaded by stating that "we have used this cage for a cockatiel". The administrator reserves the right to comment on such sales announcements and point out that the cage is not large enough compared to commonly used size recommendations.
Please note that don’t advertise your cage as “big” if it really isn't big. Cage is considered big when its base surface is several square meters.
Round cages ARE NOT SUITABLE for any bird. Selling round cages is forbidden.
# Selling and buying pet birds + forum usage #
For this reason, bird purchase and sale announcements should be added to the association’s own official platform, the forums “Buy and Sell” -sub-forum. You can then link a forum thread to this group. No additional text other than the species name of the bird to be bought / sold can be added with the link. Posts that are incomplete or against the rules will not be published in this group.
Comments on posts related to the purchase and sale of birds will be closed. The discussion related to trading should take place in a forum or through private messages.
