  1. Last night the fancy lost not only a great breeder but a truly wonderful person in Jean Horrobin. She achieved national wins with her favourite variety Fallows as well as the Opaline normals. She galvinized the fancy at all levels from National Judges to raw beginners in a way I have never seen before or since when she started a discussion via emails on the changes to the nationals with the three birds benched. She made it possible for every single person to have their say. Jean was a person that when she saw a need for a job to be done she just got on with it and did it and not many pe

  3. We have been breeding and exhibiting birds since 1984 and until the last 12 months we have never spent what could be called big money on any purchase and i think that we have been reasonably successful on the bench. We were lucky enough to purchase Bobby Smith birds for $100 each, this was before he hit the big time at National level.

  8. Hi The Pine Rivers Auction was a very enjoyable day. Great atmostphere and some really good birds. I had birds in to sell and I also purchased a couple so can speak from both sides of the fence.

As a seller i was more than happy with what mine went for and as a buyer was spoilt for choice and all were affordable.
