Returning to the hobby in 2014 it is quite amazing how the budgerigar has advanced in size and feather. My setup is small in comparison to others in the hobby. l had rejoined the Budgerigar Society as a beginner and my BS Ring No. is SMP1.
Not renewing my membership
Not renewing my Budgerigar Society membership for 2018 has been a difficult decision. The benefits do not justify the membership fee but that’s only my opinion. For me it’s about the birds, l will and try and support the local clubs. The decline of the hobby is a shame, l have made some new acquaintances and friends. My birds will be rung with rings bearing SMP supplied by Avian ID. My 2019 rings have been supplied by ZDS. The quality is good but are slightly wider than Avian ID rings.The cost of the rings is below what the BS or Avian ID charge. The delivery was exceptional and the quality of the metal rings is good, if you are looking for alternative supplier rings then do not hesitate to use this company.
Why call my budgerigar stud “Trafalgar Budgerigars” when living in Warwickshire. This my way of never forgetting the gentleman who introduced me into this wonderful hobby. Bill Nelson who friendship l will always treasure sadly Bill is no longer with us .
