Ray Fox has bred budgerigars all of his life - his interest in livestock was inherited from his father who bred racing pgeons. Ray has been a member of the Budgerigar Society since 1980 and has qualified as a BS Main Panel Judge. In recent years, Ray has focused his attention on the administration of the hobby - largely due to the diminishing membership numbers. He seeks to restore the right of the grass root membership to become more involved in the operation of the hobby.
