ALEX'S BIRDS

Exhibition Poultry, Ornamental Waterfowl & Other Exotic Birds

HELLO AND WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE. MY NAMES ALEX AND I LIVE JUST OUTSIDE A LITTLE TOWN CALLED KILKEEL IN COUNTY DOWN, NORTHERN IRELAND.

I HAVE CREATED THIS WEBSITE TO SHARE MY PASSION WITH OTHERS FOR THE BIRDS I KEEP AND ALSO TO ENCOURAGE ANYONE WHO MAY BE THINKING ABOUT TAKING UP THE HOBBY. FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU A BIT ABOUT MY STORY AND HOW IT ALL STARTED....

AT THE AGE OF 9 I CAME ACROSS A MOTHER RED-LEGGED PARTRIDGE RUNNING ALONG THE SIDE OF THE ROAD WITH HER 13 LITTLE CHICKS.  I RECKONED THEY WOULDN'T HAVE LASTED TO LONG AS THERE WERE QUITE A FEW CATS ABOUT AND THE ROAD WAS QUITE BUSY WITH CARS.SO I STARTED TO GATHER THE LITTLE CHICKS TOGETHER THAT HAD BY THEN BURIED THEMSELVES IN THE LONG GRASS AT THE SIDE OF THE ROAD.

THE MOTHER WAS SO PROTECTIVE OVER THEM SHE CAME RIGHT OVER AND I MANAGED TO CATCH HER AS WELL.WHEN I GOT THEM HOME I PUT THEM IN AN OLD RABBIT HUTCH AND PLACED A BOWL OF CHICK CRUMBS AND WATER IN WITH THEM. I WAS FASCINATED BY THEM, AND WAS AMAZED TO SEE HOW QUICKLY THEY GREW. SHE WAS A GREAT MOTHER AND SHE SUCCESSFULLY RAISED THEM ALL TO ADULTHOOD.  I RELEASED THEM  BACK WHERE I HAD FOUND THEM EARLIER ON THAT YEAR.

AND BASICALLY THAT WAS IT-I WAS HOOKED!! 

 OVER THE YEARS I HAVE KEPT A WIDE RANGE OF BIRDS AND ANIMALS BUT NOW I MAINLY JUST KEEP ORNAMENTAL WATERFOWL.

I ALSO KEEP SOME EXHIBITION STRAINS OF LIGHT SUSSEX, BUFF ORPINGTONS, WHITE SILKIES, CALL DUCKS AND A SMALL NUMBER OF EXOTIC BIRDS

 

 MY MAIN SETUP CONSISTS OF 5 PONDS WHICH HAVE FRESH WATER FLOWING DOWN THROUGH THEM. THE TOP POND IS USED FOR THE CALL DUCKS AND IS ALSO USEFUL FOR GROWING OUT DUCKLINGS. THE OTHER PONDS ARE FOR THE ORNAMENTAL WATERFOWL. SURROUNDING THE PONDS THERE ARE 30 AVIARIES USED FOR SEPERATING AGGRESSIVE BIRDS DURING BREEDING SEASON AND ALSO FOR SETTLING NEW STOCK.

 

I DO HAVE SMALL AMOUNTS OF HATCHING EGGS AND BIRDS AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, I ALSO SELL A LARGE NUMBER OF BROWN HENS FOR PEOPLE WISHING TO START UP CHICKEN-KEEPING WITH A FEW LAYING HENS FOR THE BACK GARDEN. 

I DO TRY AND ATTEND LOCAL SHOWS IF I GET THE TIME, SO SOMETIMES IT'S POSSIBLE TO MEET UP.

THE AVIARY IS ALSO OPEN TO THE PUBLIC BY APPOINTMENT AND THERE IS A CHARGE OF £2 PP
