Fireman; I'm sorry, mate. But dowels are no good to me as I'd be straight back to square one I could buy a length of dowel, in town, no problem. Only, these flat and grooved ended, twist in perches are 60c a piece, here. Then they want €7.50 f**king postage!!!
Nearest f**king pet shop is in the next county. €70.00 taxi trip away. Arse, isn't it? Haven't even got a sniff of any birds yet either.
No. I'll have to hold out and see if anyone can access a pet shop that keeps the perches I need. Meanwhile, should the sky open up and the hand of god deliver me the pair of birds I'm after? I'd just shove some sticks in there and give them a f**king dish.
Really appreciate the offer anyway, mate. Thanks.
