Helyette Morin, assistant treasurer of the association hopes that the public will come in large numbers to discover and admire all these birds. Birds have been the passion of her husband, Guy, now deceased, throughout his life. He is the one who created this bird market.

“The objective of this exchange is that breeders can sell their birds. We are at the beginning of the breeding season, and many are looking for males or females. But it is also an opportunity to publicize our association and its activities. The breeders are there to advise, explain how to raise a bird, the food to give it… To begin with, it is better to buy small birds such as mandarins, canaries or parakeets”, emphasizes Helyette Morin.

Guy Berneron, the vice-president of the AOEL, is Percheron. He lives near La Loupe. He likes to share his passion for birds with visitors. During a previous meeting, he confided to us: “In the morning, when I come to feed my canaries, I sometimes stay with them, talk to them. Their songs fluctuate throughout the day. It’s very calming”.
