    not kept hanging parrots but understand they are a bit more difficult to keep as they predominately are n ectar feeders but from what I remember of them they do eat other foods As Jan says not many keep/ breed them , but a few have been shown @ the National , & I do know of a couple of breeders who have kept them

    Talk on some of the Waxbill sites is that it's too cold for the birds & that will not be taking them /attending !

    Raza Canary.

    the last topic on Raza's was begining of 2017 from Mark49 who was breeding them @ that time & looking for swaps , but he did not get any takers ! Not that many keep them so you'd be better going to a few shows . The other issue with canaries is that most breeders like to have surplus stock shifteb begining of February so that they can look to pairing up with spare cages ready for young stock

    Stafford Show Wristbands

    think this is a little tricky ! There is still 6 weeks to the show & in that time the alert could be over be over . Cancell too soon & a lot will be disapointed if the alert is over & show does not go ahead . However there's nothing wrong with planning for it not happening . But it may not be untill 2 weeks before the show that DEFRA will be able to give a definitive answer as to whether the show should be cancelled or not as it may not be clear as how the outbreak of Avian flu is spreading or not as the case might be
