How to care for your Finch

How to care for your Finch


Price: 2.99

Everything you need to know to care for your Finch, is in this lovely easy to understand book, illustrated with stunning colour photos.

Blurb from inside cover:

Some of the birds found in the family of true finches, Fringillidae, are among the most popular of all cage and aviary birds. This is the family to which the common canary belongs and is primarily a seed eater. Most of the finches also feed on insects, fruit and vegetable matter to varying degrees. All require grit for digestive purposes and must have a constant supply of water for drinking and bathing. Finches should also have some form of lime-containing material, such as cuttlebone or baked and finely ground egg shell, available to them at all times to help them produce good, hard-shelled eggs.

The most colourful and interesting of all small seed-eating cage birds are found in the family Estrildidae, which includes 107 true species inhabiting Africa, Asia and Australasia. They are closely related to the true finches but differ in nesting habits; most of them build globular nests with side entrances that are entered by means of a spout. Additionally, some have a 'cock's nest' added to the top of the structure in which the male sleeps alone. In captivity many of them accept partly-open boxes or other receptacles in which to construct their nests. Some are quite easily bred.

The Dove has long been a symbol of peace and freedom, viewed worldwide as a messenger of serenity and depicted as such in many ancient artefacts. Today, these graceful creatures are becoming companion pets for more and more people, and 'The Guide to Owning a Dove' is the perfect reference for both first time dove owners and experienced dove enthusiasts. This book offers the most current information on all aspects of dove care, including detailed sections on both indoor housing and outdoor aviaries, plus comprehensive chapters on behaviour, health, acquiring and breeding.

How to care for your Lovebird

How to care for your Lovebird


Price: 2.99

Everything you need to know to care for your Lovebird, with lovely colourful photos.

This book discusses individual species of lovebirds, their general care and feeding requirements and what a responsible owner can expect in terms of taming and breeding his animals. The author explains that the reader should have some bird-keeping experience as lovebirds are not ideal birds for beginners. The various species themselves differ in their dietary requirements, their attitude towards humans and the ease with which they breed. Since peach-faced Lovebirds, Masked Lovebirds and Fischer's Lovebirds are the best species for the new lovebird owner, the book is geared towards their care. The author adds "Above all, we must always remember that we keep birds for their sakes and not ours and that all the pleasure we derive is the by-product of such care. We ensure our success as avian fanciers by putting the birds' welfare first at all times.

How to care for your Cockatiel

How to care for your Cockatiel


Price: 2.99

Everything you need to know to care for your Cockatiel.

Beautifully illustrated with colour photos.

Some knowledge of how cockatiels live in their natural habitat of Australia should help us to understand cockatiels kept in captivity under different geographical and climatic conditions. However, most cockatiels today come from breeding stocks of birds which have been used to a captive, domestic environment for many years. Therefore we do not have to provide a reproduction in miniature of Australian conditions for our pet to feel well and to breed. We do, however, have to keep the cockatiel's native environment in mind.

Cockatiels are normally quite peaceful birds, but there may be arguments about partners and good nesting spots. Cockatiels mix well with many other small avian species such as canaries, budgerigars, finches and other small parrots, but they should be separated from larger psittacine birds, which may attack them.

Christmas Bells

Christmas Bells

'And them bells were ringing out for Christmas day!'

I would like to point out that this is not the commercialisation of Christmas, JC loved to fish and spent some glorious times with his mates down Galilee way shooting the breeze and catching a dozen fish or so. And so we think it's only fitting that our fish should be able to get to celebrate Christmas as well.

These bells measure approx 6" width by 5" depth and a height of 3.5" holes being 1" diameter and 1.5" diameter.

Meripac Bird Table

26.99

The Meripac Bird Table is a light weight but very strong and versatile table.

Made from a durable rugged plastic they are easy to clean - aiding in the reduction of bird diseases. They are modular, allowing you to add or remove tables, seed dishes, water bowls, fat ball holders, they allow you to add the very successful 'squirrel baffle' that aids in unwanted squirrels stealing the bird feeds. They can be adjusted to discourage or encourage larger birds or smaller birds.

An extended stand incorporating a flower pot can be added for placing your table on concrete or patio's or just in an exposed part of your garden.

The options of how to assemble your Meripac are almost endless, and with an average construction time of 10 minutes with NO tools required you will not be sorry with this range!

TPS TOP TIP: Being modular you can remove or adjust any of the units as you want, allowing to cater for Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn and the species of birds that become vulnerable at these times. A good example is that Robins in bad winters will especially benefit from the fitting of a 'Small Bird Sanctuary' or a 'MultiFeeder Plus'
