Workshop for bird breeders
IN response to numerous requests for advice, the Zululand Avicultural Society has invited a prominent veterinarian to hold a workshop in Richards Bay.
Dr Anton Smit will address members and visitors at 7pm on 1 November at 36 Weigelia street, Veldenvlei.
The general topic is: ‘The diagnosis and treatment principles of sick birds’.
In addition to learning how to deal with various bird ailments, information will be shared on bird sexing.
There is no entry fee.
Dr Smit qualified as a vet 1989, and apart from his private practice he is also a breeder of parrots, with 120 breeding cages in his own collection.
On the same day, Dr Smit will also be available at Supreme Pets from 8am for surgical sexing of birds, wing and toenail clipping and micro-chipping of birds.
The Zululand Avicultural Society was formed in 2001 and promotes ethical breeding at international standards.
Meetings are held every third Friday of each month.
