I go to the “Everything to do with Pets show” every year and every year I have a blast. However I missed it this year as I was too tired to do anything extra but sleep. I came across this expo that will be happening in the end of October. I think it will be fun and although I’m maxed out at the amount of Parrots I can have in my home, I will be attending just to see what’s out there.
I found out about this on the Canadian Breeders site on Facebook. I’m so glad I joined that site. I found a baby violet Indian Ringneck that I will be adding to my flock as soon as I can afford to pay for her #brokelife. She is suppose to be “super tame” and I always wanted a violet Indian Ringneck hopefully my neighbors won’t mind. Anyhow back to the show…
I like seeing baby birds even though most times they are ugly looking, there is a cuteness to them too. At the show, if the breeders have weaned babies you can take one home right there however if they aren’t weaned then you can put down a deposit and get your baby once weaned!
Even if your not interested in buying a parrot, sometimes it’s nice just to see them and meet the different breeders. All big birds have been tested for the 3 most major diseases and of course each section is kept separate from other breeders. I like to see the different birds but sometimes you might find a cage, toys, food etc… Something that you can find at the show that you never could find or never thought of. Either way, I say come out and support the cause, even if it is just to look at the beautiful macaws :).
This will be my first official expo and no I am not getting paid to promote it. I just think it would be a great experience for bird lovers. Also it gives you something to do right before Halloween that does not involve costumes or candy, hahaha! Unless your going to try to dress up like a bird that is… Apparently you can get your tickets online and they have a deal going on that if you buy 2, you get an extra one for free. The cost isn’t a lot, it’s so affordable – only 8 dollars a person! You can’t go wrong! I’ll be there with my little kids so if you want to meet us, this is also your chance to “bump” into me :).
I can’t wait to see all the little chicks and I will definitely try to take some pictures to show you all what I seen. Basically, I will try to be blogging while I’m there so those of you who can’t make it… .Will have an idea of what was going on so maybe next year! I probably won’t be joining the contest unless I get a new phone by then lol but it’s definitely a great thing for me so I can get pictures for you guys!
Let me tell you, they did not forget about the kids! It will be fun and educational for your kids as well because they will have a section for the kids to learn and color. Which is great for me as my 2 little ones will love that! If you have a mini artist on your hands you should consider entering them into the coloring contest. There will probably be other events or contests going on that I’m just not aware of…
Oh yea, before I forget, they also have a suggestion box thing going on right now so if you have any suggestions about things you want to see at the show, feel free to send them a message.
All the pictures in this post has been taken from their facebook group. If you are interested in finding out more then search for bird show and expo 2017 and you should find the page. I hope some of you are able to make it and if you see me, PLEASE say HI!
F.Y.I – The times are Saturday from 9am – 5pm and Sunday 8am – 5pm. You can bring your own birds but just to keep my flock safe as I don’t know if other people bring their parrots to the vet – my flock will be missing this event. Sorry if I disappointed any of you
