BIRDS FOR SALE

On this page we will tell you a little about ourselves and our exploits around the country. We always try our utmost to exhibit at th ZFS club show wherever it is.
 
This year we again managed to win the best Non Standard at the Zebra Finch Society Club Show in Barry in Wales with a pair of chestnut flanked white cheeks.

We have been known to be seen around in our kilts from time to time !!

We have been keeping and breeding zebra finches from 1986, we have also kept a variety of other birds along the way.

 

OUR MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT

Well this was in 1991 our first show together, the SZFS club show at Larkhall.
The best thing about it was that we never exspected to win anything, a place in the first seven would have been good enough.
That day we won best Novice, Best Novice Breeder with a pair of Fawns, we had first & third in that class of 26.
The memory of that win will always stay with us probably becouse the competition was brilliant, S&B Carter, I&B Mulcaster, R&J Anderson and many more quality fanciers and friends.   

GREY CHEEK & FAWN CHEEK HONOURS
 
Close behind was our exhibitig and winning with the first grey cheeks and fawn cheeks in the country, they where also breeder birds.
Winning both at the ZFS club show and the SZFS club show helping to get the variety established and recognised by the ZFS as a standard variety's.

SZFS Success
 
This year we had a good show at Scotlands premier show, winning alot of specials.
Including some best of colour awards, our adult birds did particularly well.   

Adam
I started zebras in 1986, i was bought two pair by my mum for my birthday.
They where pet type birds but my fascination grew quickly and i soon built a shed, or more like a shack as i was only 14 at the time.
It all grew from there and here i am now panel judge and all who would have thought it way back then.   

Dougie
I started a bit later going into partnership with Adam in July 1991 after his friend started working in Portugal.
We had a successful start right from the beggining and have continued ever since.
My first zebra was a crest that i was given from the late Brian Binns and just like Adam it all started there.

OUR NEW PROJECT
Over the past few years we have been breeding CFW cheeks and it has been good breeding such a rare colour,along with George & Jill Lewsey we are the only ones to exhibit these to this date.
Currently we have produced two nice hens this season, so we need a couple of cocks to match them.
