    Back after a little break

    Welcome back. I know what you mean when you say you " soon realised something was missing.." . Exactly how Me and the Hubby feel at the moment. Nice to hear your getting back into the hobby. Great to hear your getting some help . Steves had a great season this year. Me and the Hubby often "debated" on what else to get and still do on what to get when we manage to start up again. Jan

    Great to hear Sue. More the better. I read that one Colin. Hopefully a few more to follow. Working on something that we may possibly be able to sort for table holders as a bonus for the support . Will see how it goes. Jan

    Need a minimum of 10 tables. Would be great if we could get even more than that and get to say hi to members we have not seen or heard from for a while. A great chance to meet up, enjoy a cuppa and help rejuvenate the forum again. Jan

    Think so too Colin.
  9. Hi all. One of our sponsors, Sexadodeaves dna sexing company, has contacted me to inform me of a competition that all members may be interested in. It's a video competition that involved how you would prepare your feathers, blood or egg shells to be sent for dna sexing. For more information and instructions, please see the link provided. Please either mention Feathered Flyer in your entry or ask to be sent a banner to be included as an attachment. Thanks, Jan http://www.sexadodeaves.com/en/and-here-it-is-video-contest-in-sexadodeaves-with-285e-prizes-2/

    Newbie saying Hi

    Hi Al. Welcome to feathered flyer. Thankyou for introducing yourself. Nice to see your getting the answers to some questions before taking the plunge. Best get it right first time as it can save on a lot of problems later on. Have to agree with Colin with the Zebra finches. Great for cage breeding or a little colony, but can prove troublesome in a mixed colony. Jan

    A Full Day Out

    Well you got back with some nice softbills James. Maybe I'll eventually be able to get there to make a start back with birds and hopefully put a face to the name. Jan

    A Full Day Out

    Those pied wagtails would have been nice to have James. We have only ever kept the grey wagtails but they were a pleasure in an aviary. That's a long day you had. It's why we take the caravan up on a Saturday. We sleep the night, up nice and early, stay Sunday night and usually have a nice traffic free journey. Jan

    Stafford is ON

    Doesn't seem to be any chance from around our way. Only getting worse apparently. Hope all who go, get there and home safe with any birds bought and sold being ok. Take care all. Jan
  23. Hi all. Just wondered who's going to the March Stafford. What are you taking and/or what are you hoping to pick up. Jan

    March 2018 Stafford bird show

    Still no Birds Mark. Was hoping to get there and see if anything tempted us, as the birdrooms are still set up and ready for new birds. Unfortunately, left it too late for tickets. Don't fancy queuing with it being so cold as of late. Probably wait until October now, but as you said, March is usually better for non parrot like. Sure there should be a cock painted finch or two available. Jan

    Stafford tickets

    I've done the same myself unfortunately. Probably leave it now until October. Jan
