    Miss

    from that picture apart from being a little scruffy around the head & neck he looks OK . However pictures can be deceptive . Also it would be interesting to know a few more details as to how he's been reared especially as I suspect that you might be lacking in experience of teils . Also 3 month old hand reared teils have a habit of going into remission & requiring further hand rearing if they leave home too early

  3. think the real question is who has lost this ?? hen Pekin Robin , or does anybody know whose ring number the bird is wearing ?
  4. that's interesting as I was not aware Pekin Robins were sometimes called nightingales & there is a 2nd species called the Japanese-- nightingale Japanese bush warbler (Horornis diphone), I've emailed Mick for clarification
  5. I agree that it's unlikely to be a wild bird & have posted this onto Foriegn softbill site where a few more may see / know of any in the UK

    I can not post a sales section

    when you go to sales page you should see a button saying "start new Topic " near the top right clicking that should open a page where you can post your advert , and at the bottom of the page there should be a submit button ! are you not getting that ?

    Best table display in Show

    yes I use them in my cages , but what I don't have are the battery powered emergency lighting systems that you can get for them , but in theory for a show all one would need is the Battery

    Best table display in Show

    did not see what was being used but apart from the tubes the LED lights on this page run on 12 volts DC so can easily be run on a battery https://www.avianlightinguk.com/store/c10/LED_Lights.html

    Frozen Insects

    Seems Priors web site is down but as far as I know they are not stocking them I now get mine from https://www.feathersandthings.uk/ how ever from a discussion I've had on FSSUK this morning they've not got a table but can drop off orders to the www.softbills.co.uk table in the FSSUK section which is located in the Annexe

    March 2019 Stafford show. Who's going

    Seems the long predicted snow is arriving ! Been raining all morning but now the rain is turning to snow but on my well salted street it's not settling ! let's hope it's cleared in time for Stafford Although I gather those that were not put off by the weather last year had a good time ???

    March 2019 Stafford show. Who's going

    given my recent history of buying wrist bands & not going I'm giving it another week before committing my self to going . But if I go I'll be best contacted via the FSSUK stand in the annexe after 11am but I will need to go visiting a few other stands including the WFS , AS & several Budgie group stands
  25. this is purely a sales show but I'm sure there will be a few on display on the AFS stand & hopefull a few who have sales tables will reply if they've got any Gouldians for sale
