I tried to breed and keep a British bird once, then I found out she was married.. :thumbsup: , Sorry couldn't resist the shot. As for the poll I don't do either.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Naaah...there are enough of the locals to feed my cat.

Don't we have enough problems with people bringing exotic plants and animals to places that have never seen them, and never should have, and create severe problems for the local eco systems without incouraging this action.

One example is a situation in Florida where people have purchased and raised pythons only to have the snakes get too big for comfort, so they release them into the everglades. One of the more notable results was the battle of a 13 foot Burmese Python tacking on a 6 foot gator, to see the results go here.

Other examples include the varacious walking Asian fish that are at the top of the food chain in the small Maryland pond where they were discovered, and it's a little mind blowing to see a bright green parrot in the snowy environs of a Chicago winter, or the northern pike that have caused the California fish and game to poison, shock, and net the fish is Lake Davis in order to keep them from spreading down stream and taking over the local fisheries, which consist of rianbow trout, german brown trout, cut throat trout, etc... of which none are indigenous to the area originally. :thumbsup:

Haven't we screwed with mother nature enough?!?!

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I do not think that we have much to worry about from cute little Posted Image
Besides Daniel3679's member info under his av, shows that he lives in the U.K.
What he is doing is no different than anyone anywhere breeding and raising birds.
Which I'm sure is quite a common hobby, and no threat to Mother Nature. :thumbsup:

Oh and BTW Daniel3679 I'd like to welcome you to Bleeping Computer! :flowers:

Just adding to what dc3 said.
What about those african carp in the mississippi river that jump in your boat they are trying to kill!

No I have never had a bird.

Do You Breed Or Keep British Birds?

Just to get back on the Hi-Jacked Track here....

I've never had any British Birds either. (others - yes)
The only easy day was yesterday.

...some do, some don't; some will, some won't (WR)

Yes this has gotten off topic.
Could we please stick to the topic at hand? :thumbsup:

So please just post constructive comments, that relate to the topic.
I'm sure that Daniel would be more than happy to answer any questions anyone may have. :flowers:

And no do not breed or keep any type of birds. But have had family that have done so.
