We had a great weekend at The Pet Show last month, it was the first time at The Stafford Showground and was a great success.
The show as a whole is a great way to get up close to a wide variety of insects and animals, even Lisa braved an encounter with a Mexican Red Knee Tarantula!
We were there to showcase our range of Bird Foods for both indoor and outdoor. We had great feedback on our Parrot range which includes an African Grey mix as well as foods for the larger Macaws. There was a great deal of excitement about the soon to be available Parrot Super Food treat bars!
However the show stopper was the Pick and Mix wild bird food which gave visitors to the stand a chance to create their own wild bird food to treat the visitors to their garden. It was great to see the children get involved and think about the various ingredients and what the birds that visit there gardens would most enjoy. It was lovely to hear stories of the regular Robin visitor or Blackbird that comes for breakfast!
We had just over 40 entries in the crafty corner competition, we had the very difficult job of short listing to the ones that are on the website and the winners will be announced soon.... They were all fantastic, thank you to everyone who took part and all the families that patently waiting for the works of art to have enough glitter and stickers to be applied!
Marriages are proud to announce we will be sponsoring the Aviary section again next year 18th and 19th August 2018.

The Marriage’s 3 Peak team completed the 3 Peaks Challenge this week, 23rd/24th July 2017. Climbing Ben Nevis at 1,344m, Scafell Pike at 978m and Snowdon at 1,085m.
The aim was to climb all 3 of these peaks in JUST 24 HOURS! This challenge was not only very physically demanding but took a lot of determination and support from others to complete.
We are pleased and proud to announce we have once again been shortlisted in the Pet Industry Federation Awards as a finalist in the Manufacturer of the Year category.Read More

Birds are without doubt among the most fascinating and exciting groups of inhabitants in our world. One of the many reasons is because they transverse our planet through migrations, moving on mass or individually and yet sometimes, rarely, it can go a little wrong, or actually is it by design?Read More

It may have escaped your notice but we have been working tirelessly on a project with the RSPB to make Bird food Fair to Nature. In doing so we have organised UK grown ingredients that you happily put in your bird feeders for hungry Long-tailed Tits, House Sparrows and Robins and also worked in Bulgaria and France to source sunflowers. However what about Peanuts? these tend be grown in far flung places and the nearest reliable growers are in West Africa. Of course working on making West african peanut farms Fair to Nature does also mean that we would be encountering birds that would have bred here in the UK now wintering in this Sahelian zone. Some of those species include Turtle Dove, Yellow Wagtails and Northern Wheatears.Read More
