The First Shama Club (Singapore) Talk on Sunday 11th Dec 2011

The above event is happening is Singapore organised by Shama Club (Singapore).... interesting topics.
Even if just to get to know some Shama enthusiasts, listen to their opinions, I think its a worthwhile weekend spent for those who are free & nearby ;)

Keeping Jambuls

Ever since news of the license requirements for Jambuls has been lifted, thousands have flocked into our local market. There are signs that it is only the beginning. Even today, in a Merbok competition, many traders were seen selling Jambuls, its cages & accessories. Could it & would it give the Merbok a serious challenge as the most kept songbird in Malaysia? Some said it has already done so in Thailand.... only time will tell & I am betting on the Jambuls for various reasons ;)

This is me jumping on the bandwagon.... and this is only part of my collections hehehe!

There are some experiments I am suppose to start. And part of it is to understand the birds better ;)

Square Cages

Haven't tried this type of cages for Jambuls before. Has 2 larger ones for the Straw-headed which is superb for them (me thinks). Bought 2 smaller size ones to try out. Now - need to find matching cloth cover ;)

Cloth Cover for Jambul Cage

Bought some cage covers for Jambul cages. I think they are ideal for keeping new birds. Anyway also using them for the old birds ;)

Twin zip makes hanging them close by possible without over stressing the birds.
