EMERGENCY SUPPLY OF BUDGERIGAR SOCIETY RINGS


The Budgerigar Society has negotiated with ring makers in Belgium (Coditech) and Germany (Oestringer) to supply BS rings while the current ring maker is closed due to the Coronavirus situation.


Rings will cost the same as at present but the postal charges will increase by £4.30 for Belgium orders and by £7.30 for German orders.


Rings will be the same colour as the existing BS rings but will not have the flat where the year is shown. In place of this the year on the ring will have a circle around it to identify that this is a BS ring.


These rings will be acceptable on birds shown at BS Patronage shows in the years ahead.
