  1. Hi, Great to see such a high number of people visiting todays sale after 2 years of not being ran due to Covid. Not so many tables selling birds so quite a bit more space than usual in the halls and balcony. I stocked up on seed and softbill food and caught up with a few familiar old faces: Ian Ryder, Mark & Ivor Whyman. Ivor Cox plus a few others. Very nice "pair" of Green headed Sunbirds on the balcony plus a few Red Vented Bulbuls. Lots of Canaries and Parrotlike. Any other FF members go today? atb Mark.

    Hi Colin, thanks for the heads up. Can the title be changed to Staffs 2022 to avoid anyone thinking this is an old post? Regards Mark.
  4. Hi Colin, Sorry to read that you won't be able make it, have always found the March Staffs to be the best one of the year. Hope your feeling a little better soon. Mark.
  5. I am taking pair of Red Whiskered Bulbuls but these are pre sold this time. I have cut down on my finches and have kept just a few Gouldians along with a breeding pair of Red Whiskered and a pair of Pekins. Looking forward to another good day out at the show.

    Frozen Insects

    I spoke to Ann Marie last week at Livefoods and they do have frozen Pinkies and Buffs which should appear on their new website launching this week if not these can be ordered by phone.

    Frozen Insects

    Hi Colin, The site for feathersandthings is down with a comment closed 19/04/19? Not sure if Chris is still trading as i don't know anywhere else to get frozen insects from? Thanks Mark.

    Hi Colin, All sorted thanks have ordered from Feathers and things for collection tomorrow. atb Mark.
  10. Morning All, Haven't bought any frozen insects before and wondered who at Staffs will be selling these as i am not sure if Priors still sell them and if they will be the only trade stand selling them? Thanks Mark
  11. Thanks Shaun, really looking forward to another good day out.

    March 2019 Stafford show. Who's going

    I'll be there, taking a few Gouldians and Stars all pre sold. Will be looking for soem more Painted Finches. Hope to see a few familiar faces and catch up on my way around the halls
  13. Thanks Colin, yes thats the one i wanted. Pete, i do have a nice unrelated pair of black headed purple breasted, 2018 aviary birds if you're interested. Not much else will be moulted through in time for Staffs by the looks of things at the moment.
  14. Hi All, Could someone remind me of the name of the company/companies that display metal aviaries at Staffs please? I cannot find the business cards i picked up last time! Thanks Mark.

    Hi Shaun, Yes, i think it is still worth while having an FF area at March Staffs as that is where i found most of the members i have met in the past and had a good chat to a few of them. Without having the FF area there is a high probability we would have passed each other by whilst shuffling around the main hall. Regards Mark
