  • Exotic animal adventures in NC: Duffie's
    When Bo McLamb purchased his first exotic bird at the age of 15, he probably couldn't imagine that one day he would own a breeding operation with a large collection of exotic bird species from around the world. For more than 50 years, McLamb raised a variety of exotic birds in Dunn, growing his hobby bird by bird as he carefully constructed water habitats, put up fencing, added incubators and built breeding houses. It was a lifelong passion for the Harnett County native, according to his family.
