About this deal

The classic example of this are the canary mules that are crossed with birds such as the goldfinch or greenfinch. In November of that year, the first issue of the society’s magazine carried an editorial in which the joint editors proposed that members should be known as aviculturists.

This page is about the various possible meanings of the acronym, abbreviation, shorthand or slang term: british birds in aviculture.

Since then, I have learned a little more about the rules and regulations on breeding and selling British birds so I thought I would share that here. Only this bird has been captive bred, had never been near the wild and was legal to keep in our aviaries. The rules on selling these birds state that all bird listed in Schedule 3, around 19 commonly bred species, have to be rung to be sold but no further documentation is required. While the ringing of chicks is an awkward job that many of us would rather avoid, it is a worthwhile process to ensure we are allowed to keep these amazing birds in captivity.

With it not being a closed site BT are funny on broadband so couldn't get onto the site kept knocking me off. I remember the first time I went to pick up some birds – canaries from memory – and saw a goldfinch in a cage.

The Avicultural Society’s annual foreign visits resumed this September following a break of three years as a result of the pandemic and difficulties associated with travelling. Schedule 2 of the act refers to people are licensed to remove birds from the wild or take their eggs. It adds an amendment to Schedule 1 that says you can sell species on the list provided that you can provide proof that they have been bred in captivity and have the right ring on them. If you are unsure if the bird is rung correctly, then you can ask the seller for a receipt that details their own information, the species of the bird and the ring ID.
