Petition Background

Requesting agriculture classification for exotic birds and domestic pigeons in Florida ,

Individuals who propagate exotic birds in Florida are covered by the Florida Right to Farm Act, 823.14, Section (3) c,
which states: “Farm product” means any plant, as defined in S. 581.011, or animal useful to humans and includes, but is not limited to, any product derived therefrom.”


Palm Beach County individuals propagating exotic birds have had an agriculture classification, for exotic birds for 35 years. June, 2013 the decision by the Property Appraisers Office has denied agricultural Classification for Exotic Birds, previously, under the agricultural Classification for Exotic Birds, Code 6750. The PBC today view the exotic bird facilities as that as DOG BREEDERS WITH KENELS.

Action is needed by Florida legislators to represent all Florida Citizens to include Exotic Birds in the Statute to maintain their status as exotic bird farmers and continue the benefit of agriculture classification as other farmers and nurseries raising pet plants, tropical fish and rabbits, that are considered as Agriculture Classification. A simple solution is to add the words "exotic birds" to Section 5 of Florida Statute 193.461

Solicitando la clasificación agrícola para los pájaros exóticos en la Florida , Los individuos que propagan pájaros exóticos en la Florida están protegidos bajo el acta Florida Right to Farm Act (el Acta del Derecho a Cultivar), 823.14, Sección (3) c, que estipula: “Producto agrícola” significa cualquier planta, tal como esté definido en S. 581.011, o animal útil para los seres humanos e incluye, pero no se limita a, cualquier producto derivado de aquellos.”

Los individuos del Condado de Palm Beach (CPB) que propagan pájaros exóticos han tenido una clasificación agrícola para los pájaros exóticos por 35 años. En junio del 2.013 la Property Appraisers Office (Oficina de Asesores de Propiedades) denegó la clasificación agrícola para los pájaros exóticos, previamente bajo la clasificación agrícola para los pájaros exóticos, Código 6750. La CPB hoy día considera a las instalaciones de los pájaros exóticos como las de los CRIADEROS DE PERROS CON JAULAS.
