    hi Ian and welcome that's quite a variety of birds your interested in but perhaps ?? not as wide as mine If your in Staffs I certainly suggest you make a note in your diary for 3rd March for this show http://staffordspringbirdshow.co.uk/ this site normaly has a section of tables but regretably few seem to be showing any interest this time around but even if that does not happen several of the Societies that keep birds your interested in will be there including the AFS I mentioned earlier & https://waxbillfinchsociety.org.uk/index.html . Also not heard if this group will have a table yet but certainly a few members will have their own https://www.facebook.com/groups/ParrotletInterestGroup/

    According to an article by Les Rance from the Parrot Soc. he apparrently managed to breed his in an outside aviary the article is here http://content.yudu.com/Library/A1tkn7/BirdScene/resources/index.htm?referrerUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yudu.com%2Fitem%2Fdetails%2F389446%2FBird-Scene

    Although they got on well together I never even saw them mate ! I understand that was a common problem around the time I had them

    It's good that you've found some Let's hope you can get them breeding , which is easier said than done, or so I found when I kept them

    unless your lucky or can contact the Cape Dove breeding roup you'll be luck to get a male . Afraid I've not got their contact details but it used to be run from Paighton Zoo
  10. yes it seems to have become a site where folk advertise their events & post their for sale & want ads The FF section @ the Spring show was intended as a place where members could congregate and some monies could be raised to run the site both from the auction of donated birds & bird related items , and the sale of FF related items . But with no adverts on the site , & no monies raised by the members time is slowly running out for the site & it's info archive
  11. they say silence is golden BUT In this case could it be the sound of DOOM ?

    Raza Canary.

    sorry she's not got back to you but it would seem she has hardly been on the forum & seems only to be answering current posts so she may not have seen your reply ' I'm afraid I can't help much as I've not been to the last few Stafford shows so am unsure what is about
  13. I know it's early but given the through traffic on the site is perhaps time ???? that folk started discussing whether they might be attending
