About Us
South West Breeders Association

Early in December 2006 representatives from several south west based bird society’s got together to discuss the problems of bird breeders passing on excess birds and being able to obtain new stock.  It was a very good meeting, with a lot of enthusiasm  resulting in the formation of the SOUTH WEST BREEDERS ASSOCIATION.  The societies participating are

Bristol Budgerigar Society
Bristol Cage Bird Society
Severn Counties Foreign & British Bird Society.
Cinderford & District Cage Bird Society

The purpose of the formation of the South West Breeders Association was to stage a ‘Sales Day’.  This means that breeders can pass on their excess stock, buyers know  they are purchasing from  a reputable source and can be informed of the breeding history of the birds together with the correct care of the birds.  It  also enables a better price for stock for both the seller & the buyer.

The next event will be held on the  DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST THIS EVENT WILL NOT BE               STAGED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

All birds offered for sale will be checked on entry and the South West Breeder Association will refuse entrance of any bird or cage not meeting the required high standards.

The participating societies of the South West Breeders Association feel that if we are to safeguard our hobby for the future we need to work together and this event is the start of the way forward.
