D'oh! I really should read stuff properly first shouldn't I!? [emoji23]. I'll have a look as this one online, I've been wanting to go to something like this for years, but didn't realise there was another one to choose from! Thanks @TomsMum [emoji6]I think you’re thinking of the Parrot Society shows at Stafford Show Ground
Think Parrots is held at Kempton Park Race Course and isn’t a bird sale event, various exhibitors and stalls, plus lectures and demonstrations.
It’s nothing to do with the vet’s confidence.... it’s all to do with ensuring that the birds are under the least amount of stress, and towelling and holding a bird for x amount of time is stressful.I am pleased that they are promoting micro chipping but my concern is this the correct venue for such event. I have never had any of my birds Micro chipped using gas but not too many avian vets are confident in carrying out the procedure with out a slight wiff being given. I am sure the actual place that they will be chipped will be made safe and fit for the purpose. The concern of Bio security at such venues is valid and one reason I will not be taking my flock and also have a shower and a complete change of clothing before I attempt to go to any of the flock. I can only advice other to take such precautions. I do hope to go this year as I do love this event.
