    we will be there but not to sell any birds but showing at the colour canary show plus only ever sell our birds in march as like to make sure the birds are fit and healthy. perhaps we could have a meet up point with a time and then could all meet up then.

    Blankets Quiz Nights

    when I first did the quiz myself we had 1 and a half hours at a club meeting and only got twenty right must admit not easy which is why I gave as much time as you needed just about but like I said at the beginning it was just a bit of fun to have a think while the breeding was going which I hope everyone is having a good year this year.
