2014 Orange Bird Sale Review

by Ray Smith

 

A number of records were broken in the 2014 Orange Bird Sale.  The first being the most number of bird sales in a row that attracted an unusually high amount of rainfall.

On the positive side the most number of bird sellers and birds benched was also smashed with 333 bird sellers benching 5,865 birds.  Could that be an Australian record?

The crowds were down slightly due to the rain but over 1500 people passed through the hall on the day.

Once again a huge variety of birds were offered for sale.  The transfer cages again proved to be one of the most popular areas of the sale with a steady stream of birds changing hands.

The Orange Bird Society would like to thank all of the bird sellers, traders and bird buyers who again made the 2014 Orange Bird Sale a great success.
