Fort Worth Bird Mart

Post by dunker817 » Thu Oct 08, 2015 9:17 pm

Just wondering if any one in the Fort Worth/Dallas area has any heads up on the bird mart coming up. I'm as excited about this one as I was the last one. I'm hoping it's as successful as the last one with plenty of breeders and suppliers on hand.

dunker817 Our mart is October 17 in Cleburne, TX. Doors will open at 9:30 am, so the best birds/supplies go quickly once the doors open. Finch Row will be there. I know there will be Zebras and Societies. Helen may have Stars and Owls. Ahmed will have BCCBs. Colt will be there, but not sure what he is bringing. Deborah will have Parrot finches. There will be a Gouldian breeder plus another finch breeder just across the aisle in row A, and of course Ace and Dimitrios will have their usual space along the wall to the right of the entrance door.

Cheryl and I will have the tables that are near the loading door (at the end of Finch Row), though I have little to bring. Be sure to stop by and say hi. I will be circulating through the hall, filling volunteer positions, so I may be at the entrance door selling tickets or I may be at the raffle table, also selling tickets.
3 Purple Grenadiers, 1 Goldbreast + 1 cat.

I will meet you there. I'm glad you mentioned the time because I thought it started at 9am. That will give me a bit more time to get there.

Darn...had to ask. My little hen is so lonely. She's with some of my other friendlier finches, but she just sits on top of their seed tube to stay out of everyone's way.

slwatson I checked with a friend, but she doesn't have anything. I wonder if Colt has one?

FinchesRUS posted last January that she had two males for sale, I don't know if she still has them, but you could try to PM her.

I think Colt does have some, but I bought my first one from him, so they're related. I was hoping to get one that wasn't related in case I wanted to breed them in the future. I'll check with FinchesRUs. Thank you!!!
