The society publishes a bi-monthly magazine which is posted to all members of the society. The magazine contains a number of features, including articles on all aspects of our fancy, written by fanciers in this country, and world-wide.
Additional features include reports and results from area society and specialist society meetings throughout the country. In fact we have a lot of members throughout the world, who also write for us, and these articles are enhanced by photographs illustrating the subject. The society is indeed fortunate in being able to call on excellent photographers who are able to bring their skills to the the magazine for the benefit of all BS members.
All members, whatever their length of membership and time in the fancy are invited to submit articles about their experiences, letters and photographs to be considered for publication.
This publication is published periodically to confirm the General Rules and reflect any changes that have been made. It also encompasses the current Show Rules, including specifications for the show cage and the Guidelines for Judges and exhibitors, culminating in a directory of members and judges who are members of the society’s Judges panel.
The Introductory Leaflet is exactly what this publication is. It introduces the reader to the budgerigar together with an overview of the hobby in general. It is available to anyone on request.
Since the society was formed (in 1925) it has taken responsibility for defining and describing the various features which make up the ever-expanding number of new varieties of budgerigars that have been bred since this species was first introduced from its native habitat. Particularly in the last few years, increasing efforts have been made to re-establish the true integrity of each of the mutations that have appeared and been fixed. In 2012 the Colour Standards booklet was published which gives a comprehensive collection of accurate colour illustrations and descriptions.
