    Hi & welcome back
  2. For All New Members

    welcome back Brian . Hopefully once the site is back running properly there will be more talk about softbills !
  3. Stafford is ON

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

    Not for Stafford , but as I posted earlier the predictions from Met Office are deteriorating & there is now snow forecast for Sunday https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast/gcqkrv0ge#?date=2018-03-01

  7. 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
  8. 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

    they are on the WFS page but there's a new page waxbills UK https://www.facebook.com/groups/322602617933901/ which is open to all . But I think perhaps my post was not clear enough as the adds were wanted not sales

  14. What are your plans for Stafford

    My plans for Stafford went in the Bin begining last week ! I was more than a little poorly but after a course of antibiotics I'm a lot better , but not well enough for a day out Hope every one enjoys themselves , collect the birds they are looking for , & those competing go home with a few winners
