We are truly pleased at the response we are receiving from breeders and members of the public alike who have thrown their support and enthusiasm behind the Bird Keepers Association’s inaugural event to be held on Sunday 23 November 2014 at St. Augustines Church Hall, Thorpe Bay. Booked so far to attend the event are breeders with a fascinating variety of coloured canaries, Australian finches, Japanese Quail , baby lovebirds, and many more. There will be cages and equipment for sale and with all the advice on tap there won’t be anything standing in your way to become a bird keeper!!
In our quest to bring together bird keepers we have been surprised by the number of people who have aviaries in their back garden or those who have always wanted to keep and breed our little feathered friends but need an Association like the BKA to kick start their hobby.
We look forward to an entertaining day
