  1. Hi Everyone.

    Simon, Welcome, I hope the site provides you the information you need, there is a lot of information on this site as it has been running a long time, just search with your key word(s) and you will be returned with a plethora of information, but please remember this is often just members opinions, and you will get pros and cons on each subject. With regards to your greenhouse, I assume you will take the glass out and replace with something solid, or wire, otherwise it may just get too hot.
  2. What are your plans for Stafford

    Shaun, well done.
  3. Stafford 8th October 2017

    Not replied, as I won't be going
  4. Plastic Perches

    I use the canary wooden perches, and support with a pin on the rear wall. For longer length dowel with a twist on dowel holder.
  5. Sexado De aves

    I post mine standard class, and the site indicates when the sample has been received, mine normally take no more than 3 days.
  6. Sexado De aves

    Normally 7 - 10 days, I assume this depends on demand, occasionally quicker.
  7. For October Stafford

    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
  8. New sponsor Aviform

    I am an Avigold Advanced user, and the syringe is a great method of applying the right quantity
  9. Sexado De aves

    Jan, that is good news for the site.
  10. Stafford 2017. Are You Going.

    I am almost certainly going, but just looking for hardware (heat, light, etc.) for the new Lineolated aviary.
  11. 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.
  12. Just For Fun 2

    Surely its just a lapwing, or at least some type of plover.

    Somebody has to spoil the fun: Lagopus is a small genus of birds in the grouse subfamily, commonly known as ptarmigans

    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.
