Very well written
the point regarding the exotic mutations is a worthy one
In the past,this market was held at a proper place near Daak Khana chowrangi but the residents there complained to the council who had it shifted to the current awful location.
In addition to the above mentioned birds,i have also seen woodpeckers,owns,falcons,snakes,rabbits,francolins and partridges brought here as well.
When i entered the hobby,i did not have anyone to guide me be it a friend or relative.So my source of information was initially based on talking to fanciers who visited the market.For the first 6 months,i visited the market every Sunday and would spend 4 to 6 hours just observing and hearing what was going on while i searched around for desired birds.Later onwards,Tahir Mahmood played a big role in teaching me the rules of the market as well as ways of tackling the different type of persons who come there.
In my opinion,if it was not for this market then fanciers would be forced to buy from shops only.It was through this market that i got to meet genuine breeders/sincere friends
