Birdkeepers to sell hand-raised birds

Beryle Woodham with her eight-week-old Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot Crustie.BERYLE Woodham’s eight-week-old Blue-fronted Amazon Parrot named Crustie snuggled under her chin.

The little bird came to her as an egg when a fellow member of the Inverell Social Birdkeepers’ Group, Chris Russell, had a hen which laid off the perch, or out of the nest.

Only one egg successfully produced a chick, and Chris said she could keep the bird, which thrilled Beryle.

“I wanted to die, because it was my birthday, and I’ve always wanted one of these,” she said.

“So he is very special to me.”

She and her husband Trevor have a property bursting with birds of all colours and sizes, from miniscule finches to Black cockatoos and birds are a large part of their lives.

Beryle said she was attracted to the Amazons by their colour, talking ability and strong bond they form with humans.

The engaging small parrot is only one of countless birds Beryle has hand raised. She has a knack for hand-rearing Eclectus parrots, but felt a bias toward the friendly Amazon.

“As far as hand-rearing this one, and the Eckies, I would do a hundred of these,” she said, stoking the docile, jewel-like bird.

Some of their birds and many others will be for sale at the Inverell Social Birdkeepers Group Early Bird Sale, this Saturday, February 20 at the Inverell showgrounds basketball courts.

Trevor said there are sellers are coming from Bribie Island down to Sydney out to Bourk with a large variety of birds such as Finches, Budgies, Parrots, Doves and Quail.

Trade tables will be on site to address all bird needs.

Public entry to the sale opens at 10am with a $2 entry and all are welcome to browse, ask questions or take home a new friend.

Trevor said the Bird Sale Code of Practice Applies and for information, give him a call on 6723 1388.
