  1. Sexado De aves

    Hi Mick. Always good to mention the forum as it helps with future sponsorship from them. If you are thinking of having tests done at the moment then I would just warn that some members on here have had delays due to the post strike in Spain. Obviously this is beyond Sexados control but just thought I would let you know. Jan

    You might like to look back at past posts where Hayley sorted out our usual section for FF nice and early. When we got there we were given a totally different section, in a dark dingy place where no one could find us.. I also think you need to read the letter again that you posted on FF that was sent to Peter. This wasn't about species but more about the extra costs that the parrot society put on their section. It was then decided that the FSSUK would no longer have a showing there. There was also a problem with the parrot society not issuing early entry tickets as they had previously for members who were putting birds on display. Basically if you read the messages again, it was quite clear that the parrot society were being as awkward as they could, dealing with Peter Moore. Especially when you think how long there has been a softbill section there. Jan

    Just like to point out that the problems with Stafford isn't mainly an admin problem but a parrot society problem. They are doing their best to shut out any other organisation. FF has been given a hard time by them and I know the FSSUK has as well. Paul. Your support has been really appreciated and no one can blame you for having to book tickets and tables elsewhere. I have held off ordering birds myself (including off you) as I don't even know if I'll be going due to a lack of a definite FF area. It is more than a little frustrating but we will continue to try to make things work. Jan

    I would sort some more samples. As Stormbird says, it looks like they gone missing in the post. They were very quick with mine. Jan

    Thankyou Rob. Have kept all these except the hooded siskins. These are all stunning birds and great to keep. Pearl headed silverbills are getting quite hard to get these days unfortunately. Jan

    I know it's early but Me and the Hubby are looking to start with a few birds again.

Prefer birds bred in slightly cooler than the average Gouldian birdrooms. Genuine parent reared painted finches. Genuine parent reared pairs of Pearl headed silverbills. Genuine parent reared Black hooded red siskins. Pairs Cuban finches. Genuine parent reared UK bred St. Helena waxbills, Looking for a few sources of these as I'm looking to make a nice colony again). Checking early so that adjustments to our current setup can be made. Thanks for reading. Jan

  15. Blankets Quiz Nights

    Well that was a great quiz. Surprising how obvious the answers to some of these are now you can see them next to the clue. Think I may have been over thinking them a little. wouldn't have got 25, 29 and 51 in a million years though. Thanks for taking the time to run it though. Jan
