    Todd Marcus and staff are very friendly! They answer all questions no matter how silly, from non-birders! I enjoy coming all the time.

    What an awesome store! I popped in quickly, just to check it out. We are new to the area and since I'll be needing a new pet store, I figured I'll check it out.

    Like others, we can??t say enough about this store, we drive from Staten Island NY we could go to other stores but not one stands in the same light as this one, they take there time let us ask questions and spend as much time with us as we needed. We have made several trips to the store to visit our new baby and every time the store and the staff are the same. I can see why so many people make the trip it is worth it!!!

    Last week we went to Todd Marcus Birds Exotic to look for a new bird for our family, we were so impressed with the quality of the birds and how clean the store was!, everybody was so friendly and knowledgeable, they spent all the time we needed to go over all our questions and handle all the birds till we found the best bird for us, a Yellow shoulder Amazon. They gave us a great price with a cage and even paid our sales tax! You have to see this store to see how amazing it is and how you feel like family I would give them a 10 the best of the best!!!

    My wife and I looked hard and long for a bird that was just right for our family, we went to several stores and went on line and we were told to check out Todd Marcus Birds Exotic, and let me tell you, it was the best thing we could have done! The staff was very helpful and spent so much time with us in making the right choice for us. We now are the proud parents of a baby male Eclectus. I couldn??t say enough good about Todd And his staff, you will have us as customers for ever!

    I stopped by Todd Marcus's store today and was pleasantly surprised to see a store that is very open and very well lighted. Everywhere you look there are parrots. All the birds seem to have something to say, and all at the same time. I was watching the staff hand feeding their baby birds and never saw so many hungary feathered friends. They love to eat, and some are fed 3 times a day, until they are weaned off the formula and start eating seeds and pellets. I saw "Todd Marcus", the owner working really hard and talking with all his customers that have been coming to him for years, as I have done. Last week I was talking to "Kathy Marcus" and she too was very busy assisting her customers. They make you feel very welcome when you come to their store. I was glad to see that they are NOT charging the 7% sales tax during the month of December. That means more money in MY pocket. Thank you Todd & Kathy

    I have been going to Todd Marcus since they were in cinnaminson we purchased our love birds from them. Todd and his wife are such nice and helpful people. They care so very much about their birds and their customers. Our friend miss Debbie with the long black hair she is the greatest she greets my bird by her name as soon as we come in the door. Please always keep her as an employee she is one of the many reasons why we come to Todd Marcus.

    I have been buying birds from Todd and Kathy for almost 20 years now. I started when he was in a fish store in Cinnaminson, N.J. and then I continued buying birds from them when they moved to a larger store in a shopping center. Now they are in Delran, N.J. and have a very bright and airy store just off Rt.130 and Chester Ave. Over the years I have bought over 20 birds from them. Some of them were consignment birds and some of them babies. Every single one of them was in perfect health and the entire staff could not have been more helpful. They even try to match the right bird to the right owner. I have never found a store where they know more about birds and their feeding habits and the types of toys they enjoy. Their birds come from breeders that breed quality not quantity.Their prices are very fair and their selection of birds is excellent, along with their many choices of custom blend bird foods for specific birds. I wouldn't buy a bird anywhere else. Their use of towels when they groom the birds is excellent. It is safer for the bird and also the person doing the grooming. It does not hurt the birds at all. All their towels are washed daily and no towels are used more then once. I send all my friends and relatives to Todd's to buy their birds. I have tried almost every kind of bird out there over the years. Many in my family have gone their also. There is no better place anywhere to buy a bird and to get excellent bird advice. The staff welcomes you as if you were family. There is absolutely NO pressure and you Do end up leaving with the right bird for you and your family. They may not be the biggest bird store, but they are the BEST store anywhere on the east coast.

    I have been buying birds and supplies from Todd Marcus for over 15 years. The quality of the birds he sells is excellent. He is not a mass producer of birds. His breeders are selected for quality birds. My consistently good experience with Todd and his staff has kept me coming back over the years. He has an excellent vet who visits the store routinely. You can't go wrong with a stable, good quality bird store. I recommend visiting Todd's before going to other local bird stores with glitter, hype, and mass produced birds for sale.

    My husband and I have shopped at Birds Exotic for years. It is just like family there. The staff is knowledgeable, the place is clean and there is a great selection. We used to drive from outside Philadelphia several times a month for food, toys and just to visit. We bought several of our many birds from Todd and never felt any pressure to take home an unweaned baby. We also bought several rehomed birds from the store and rather than $$$ they had the best interest of the birds in mind, choosing to sell to a good home at a reduced price.We now live in North Carolina and miss the times we would spend with our"family" at Todd's. We still get all of our food from there.I would highly recommend shopping there!

    My expierence with this store is wonderful. I had a problem with a large bilrd dealer in Burlington, NJ who when I went to see my baby bird,, was gone. I was told by the owner that he was sick and shipped back to Florida. Never a phone call or anything, My bird was just gone. I am not going to go into any details about this greedy and obnoxious person but I would like to say that it lead me to Todd Marcus. He was given rave reviews by my avian vet and also alot of people I spoke to. After a altercation at the other store with the owner, it was a pleasure to speak to Mr. Marcus. I did buy my white capped pionus from him. His staff was great and understanding. I will be getting my baby (Remi) after he is weaned and bringing him home. Thanks alot guys for making a bad experience turn into a great outcome. Many Thanks, Linda

    Birds exotic is one of the best. They handle all their birds and they have great personalities. I have 2 birds of my own from birds exotic and they are the most loving birds that I could ever have. The employees are great and they always ask you if you need help. It gives you a feeling like you are family and I would recommend this store to everyone-100% of the time!

    I can't say enough good things about this store. The staff is completely helpful and knowledgeable. We never felt pressured to purchase just any bird. We were perfectly matched up according to what our desires were in owning a bird. We were steered away from any bird that may not be suitable around young children and could not be any happier with our new additions. WE CHOSE to bring them home still hand feeding after several in store demonstrations and 2 months of visits several times a week to make sure we were ready for the responsibility, and it was the right decision for us. Feeding time is so much fun and the bonding is wonderful. But if hand feeding is not for you, the staff will not push you to try. You take your bird home when You are ready. The staff is great, especially Todd, Lisa, Terry, Anthony, George, and Justin. I would definitely recommend Birds Exotic to new and experienced bird owners alike.

    I can't speak high enough of Exotic Birds by Todd Marcus. Going into the store I found it to be very clean and the entire staff very nice and helpful. Not knowing anything about birds, the entire staff was so informative about the different types and their personalities. I now have three birds from Bird Exotic and they all are very healthy and lovable and I know it is from the great care they received from the staff. I would highly recommend this store to anyone wanting to add a new family member to their home.

    I have been shopping at Todd Marcus for only 2 years but have never found the bad experiences that others have written about here. The staff are very knowledgeable of the birds they sell and always ready to help answer my questions. Todd's store in Cinaminson was a bit crowded but the new store is not. When we purchased our first Cockatoo, he was just a baby. We were given the choice of waiting till he was weaned or we could wean him ourselves. We opted for the latter and they taught us how to prepare the formula and how to feed the bird. To me that added to the whole experience and also helped to make a bond with him. As far as caring for their birds, I think that having the birds inside those glass rooms is a great idea. It not only protects the birds from the public, it also protects the little fingers of curious children from being bitten by a playful or frightened bird. I've been to other bird stores in the area and the birds are out where anyone can touch them and handle them without any supervision from staff. This is not a good practice. I highly recommend Birds Exotic to anyone who is considering purchasing a bird.

    My wife & I drive from Phila. to Birds Exotic. We have a Grey and they have been an immense help. They showed my wife how to feed the bird & as it grew they would discuss types of food with us. We've been coming to Birds Exotic for years & have come to know the owners & staff pretty well. They are knowledgeable and I trust them.

    I have purchased birds and supplies from this store for over 15 years. The birds are healthy, the supplies are the best around. I agree with some of the other reviews that the staff is often standing around talking or seems very unorganized. I happen to know a bit about birds so having an unknowledgeable staff is not apparent to me. I do think the service could be better. I have encountered staff members complaining about customers in front of other customers (myself included). Not professional. Putting that aside, the birds and wonderful!

    I have personally purchased several birds from Birds Exotic. They were all very healthy and groomed. After I bought my first bird from there I brought him to the vet, the vet said that he was in very good condition. When i purchased my umbrella cockatoo he was being hand fed this was my first bird i had to hand feed so to make my new companion feel comfortable and safe around me and the same for myself they asked if I would feel better if i kept the bird at the store until i felt that i could do it on my own. They also showed me how to prepare the food and feed him the proper way.
    I have been going to them for the past couple of yrs. and the staff has always been friendly and helpful with everything i needed. If i have any questions they always answer with knowledge . The store is always clean and well stocked with supplies. If anyone would ask me about bird purchases or suppplies i would recommmened Todd Marcus without a thought. They always have plenty of things for me to choose from unlike other pet stores that i have been to.

    We bought an absolutely WONDERFUL African Grey parrot at Todd Marcus in June of '06. We live a little over 2 hours from the store, but we go there at least 3 times a year. I love the toys and food selection and the new store is much roomier now. We had a good experience when we bought our bird which was our first from Todd Marcus, but our 9th pet bird. Yes he was pricier than the breeder where we got most of our other birds(Woodys), but our Grey was worth every penny. He has a great temperament and was vet checked by our own vet and is healthy. We requested a weaned bird, even though we have hand fed before. I wouldn't recommend hand feeding to everyone though. We were previous parrot owners which might also have had something to do with how smoothly everything went with our transaction and our parrot. The place where we got our birds in the past has gone downhill. The toys are covered with dust, the store is dirty, the cages are dirty, the service is poor, and the parrot food is loaded with bugs. Todds store was MUCH cleaner, had a great selection of toys, and we felt that the staff was helpful, especially Todd and Terry. I feel that the staff is very good with the birds and the birds are better pets because of their TLC.

    I visited this store since I was interested in owning a bird. When I arrived, nobody asked me if I needed help. The employees were standing around talking. I finally asked someone to help me. They showed me an amazon parrot. They said this was a great family bird and would be fine with my 3 year old son. They said I could take the bird home that day with a feeding lesson (the bird still was taking formula). I have never done that before and did not feel comfortable. I was told "it's easy." I left wanting to do some more research. After surfing the web and checking out another bird store, I found that an amazon is probably the last bird I would want around my son. I do not recommend this place. I also learned from the other store that it is not good to take a bird on feedings, especially if I have never done it before. The bird could die if I fed it wrong. Do they have any education or love of animals at Birds Exotic, or are they just salespeople trying to make a quick commission? I would say the latter.

    PROS: Bright lights
    CONS: Uncaring owner and employees - only interested in a quick buck

    Researched for months before buying a Macaw for my husband's b-day. Birds Exotic was said to be the biggest bird store around. Salesperson was very pleasant who sold us the bird but he turned out to be very unknowledgeable about the bird he sold us. We wanted a young but weaned bird. We were given paperwork with no birthdate. Later called to check and was told bird was several mos older than we were told at sale. Salesperson was rude and condescending claiming parrots live so long this didn't matter(Three months more than we thought in a pet store mattered to us). We were told our bird was molting. At 10 mos. he had NO tail and was kept on the floor (no perch) of a window box type cage. I thought this odd but believed the story I was given. Vet was outraged about the tail (appeared hacked off) and concerned about damage that would prevent growth. We've had a hard time with it but 6 mos later he's finally growing a nice tail. Early feathers were inspected by vet and he noted much stress lines. Aggressive/nervous behaviors have improved alot also but took alot of patience on our part. Another bird store owner worked with us with training/handling at no charge (Felt bad for us and our bird). Would never go back to that store.100's of 'Tiels piled on top of each other was sickening.

    PROS: Lack of integrity.No respect for your investment into life long companion
    CONS: Was a hard road but we wouldn't trade our little buddy

    Message from Todd Marcus Birds Exotic

    All of this began when Todd was a young man working for a Wholesaler & everyone in the business was selling Imports. He decided to try something different so he opened his own Store on Mothers Day, 29 yrs ago in a very small space in an already established Fish Store. From there he moved to a slightly larger space which he out grew within 6 months. It was then that he moved into his 3500sq ft space in the Mainline Shopping Center where he stayed for 23 years. In July 2006, after years of looking for just the right place we moved into our newly improved, fully loaded 10,000sq. ft. Nest.



    Todd Marcus Birds Exotic has a wonderful reputation. Not as being one of those ‚??Mega Bird Stores‚?Ě, but as being the BEST in the Business, with the healthiest Birds, the Cleanest Environment, and Quality Cages/Toys and Commodities. Our goal is to remain humble, sell healthy birds, make our customers feel like part of the ‚??family‚?Ě and educate the public on the care of these marvelous creatures. We want each trip to our store to be fun and educational. The staff here at Birds Exotic is by far the best in the business, their knowledge and friendliness keep you coming back for more
