If you are a bird lover like me, you’ll understand how thrilling it can be to witness birds of all colors, shapes, and sizes in one place. That’s why I was ecstatic when I found out about Planet Aviary, a bird store that boasts a wide range of birds from different parts of the world. The store claims to offer premium quality birds, and I’d always been curious about their service. So, I packed my bags and made a trip to their store in Blackburn, Lancashire, and needless to say, it was an adventure I will never forget.

In this post, I share my experience with Planet Aviary from the moment I walked in, the birds I saw, and the customer service I received.

What to Expect

Walking in, I had instant bird envy seeing all the birds in their varied colors. Planet Aviary’s store was spacious and tidy, with ample space for both the humans and birds to move around. One of the first birds I saw was a magnificent Green Junglefowl, which I was amazed by because they are not a common bird.

The store also had different types of finches, canaries, and exotic birds such as Toucans, Macaws, and Love Birds. In total, they had over 300 species of birds, so there was something for every bird lover to smile about. I could tell these birds were well taken care of because they all looked healthy and very active, making the ambiance lively.

The staff at Planet Aviary were courteous and knowledgeable about the birds they stocked. They answered all the questions I had regarding the birds’ diets, habitats, and breed. One staff member, in particular, stood out to me with his exceptional service. He was genuine in his passion for birds, and it was clear he was not just working a job.

He was happy to explain the birds’ different characteristics, habitats, and feather patterns, leading me to believe that the management was keen on selecting a team of bird lovers and experts. As a bird enthusiast, I’m always eager to learn, and the staff at Planet Aviary made sure my experience was both informative and memorable.

If you thought Planet Aviary was all about birds, think again. The store also had a vast collection of bird-related accessories such as cages, toys, and food – everything you need to groom and care for your birds. I was pleased to see that they had an extensive range of bird food options, from seed mixes to pellets, and they stocked brands such as ZuPreem and Kaytee. Additionally, they had bird toys that provided entertainment for birds and promoted their physical and mental health. The toys were good quality and came in different shapes, sizes, and colors, making them appealing to different types of birds.

The store had socialization opportunities in the form of weekly events such as bird shows, seminars, and meetups. It was refreshing to see how bird enthusiasts came together, sharing knowledge and experience about birds, and it made me feel like part of a community. I recommend checking their events calendar when you visit their store.


Planet Aviary was the ultimate bird lover’s haven. Going there felt like an adventure and I didn’t want to leave. My visit gave me a renewed appreciation of the beauty and diversity of birds. The store was neat, spacious, and had a wide variety of birds and bird-related accessories.
