Club Visit To Henry George's Aviary Today

Recommended Posts

My club went on a trip up to Henry George's aviary and horse stud today. OMG. What can i say but awesome. Henry himself if the nicest most loveliest person. He was so patient answering my probably incredibly stupid questions.

 

His aviary was the most amazing thing, I think it was bigger than my house... and the birds!!! He showed us a nest of superb babies that were just pin feathers but you could see the potential in all of them.

 

We bought a gorgeous recessive pied cockbird he picked out for us, and we have named him Henry in honour. I will take a picture of him tomorrow. He's settling into quarantine now.

 

I have attached a few pics of his beautiful birds for us all to drool over.....

 

I can't recommend joining a club enough. The people are so lovely and the knowledge shared is just priceless.

Gorgeous birds!

Wouldn't mind a pair of those!

Do you mind saying round about what price you paid?

As I know some breeders don't like clients repeating their prices.

Most of the birds he had for sale were $150+ ish. Being very new members he offered us an extremely low price for our young recessive cock, he said he was very taken with us being so interested and the fact my 12yr old daughter was so into it he wanted to foster that. I wont say what we paid as it may cause issues.

 

Maan it was so inspiring. I learned so much just observing, and I had a field day with my camera :)

 

We also had an amazing demonstration of one of his award winning dressage stallions, I could have watched him work all day. It was such an amazing place to get to visit.

Wow that sounds like a great day out. Would love to go there and see his birds and I would the horses too.

I am very pleased that he helped you out with a bird at a reasonable price, great to encourage beginners.
