  1. I post mine standard class, and the site indicates when the sample has been received, mine normally take no more than 3 days.
  2. Normally 7 - 10 days, I assume this depends on demand, occasionally quicker.
  3. Jan, I have Gouldians( seven) from two sets of parents, parent reared and bred outside, not sexed any yet, but getting almost ready to go
  4. I am an Avigold Advanced user, and the syringe is a great method of applying the right quantity
  5. Jan, that is good news for the site.
  6. How many cages, I assume 1 pair to a cage.
  7. I am almost certainly going, but just looking for hardware (heat, light, etc.) for the new Lineolated aviary.
  8. John, Wiltshire is a large area, and though I live in North Somerset, would travel to Wiltshire, as I don't think its far, you may feel the Weston-super-Mare is too far, so be more specific i.e. X mile from Salisbury (or wherever).
  9. Dave, Please can you confirm when lots 13, 14, 15 & 16 are paid for. Andy, Steve, Please PM me your full postal address, and I will get these off to you Monday morning.
  10. Dave, as mentioned I will post (and pay for) 2nd class mail within the UK, however the winners need to understand these are not for collection at Stafford, and they will need to PM me with their address.
  11. Dave I propose to break from Safford Auction rules with your agreement: I have four books for auction, however I am not attending Stafford, on notification of the winners, I will post the books to a UK address (2nd class) at my expense. This means the winners do not have to attend Stafford, and opens the auction up; however, this has to be with the admins agreement.

  12. Surely its just a lapwing, or at least some type of plover.
  13. Somebody has to spoil the fun: Lagopus is a small genus of birds in the grouse subfamily, commonly known as ptarmigans
  14. I agree, it is a shame, but, as I am sure I know who you talking about, probably the correct decision.
  15. Chester, I think you are taking this out of context, we are discussing bird buying/selling related incidents, however looking at the broader area the PS as with any other organisation or individual organising an event has a "duty of care" which includes "taking ALL reasonable measures", and in this day and age it is the event organiser to prove that these measures were taken which include full risk assessments, and in this case risk does not just include accidents and injuries but all risk.
