Jac Cuyten & Co – A View To The Future

The Flemish Budgerigar Club (VGC) in Belgium is holding its first “Budgie Symposium” on Sunday, February 28, 2010, at the Parish Hall, 10 Venus Street, 2520 Oelegem, Belgium.

The VGC says:

The VGC have, for some time now, planned to organise an annual contact day.

One day on which all breeders can subscribe to various topics – such as innovations and other issues related to our hobby. It is also a day to optimise relationships in an atmosphere of conviviality during lunch or in the café.

Our parent club, the Dutch Budgerigar Society (NGC), held a major budgerigar symposium in October 2008 and in imitation of this great initiative we have now introduced it in Belgium. So our first annual contact day will be a budgerigar symposium.

Full details of the symposium can be found onthe VGC website, here: VGC Budgie Symposium

Applications to attend the symposium close on Sunday, February 21st, 2010.

A View To The Future

One of the many highlights at the symposium, is the premiere of “Jac Cuyten & Co, A View To The Future”.

This is a new film, by leading Dutch film maker Harry van Doorne, of Jac Cuyten, the Dutch champion breeder, author of “All About Feathers” and someone with a great vision of the modern bird.

A preview of the film can be viewed here:

    I visited Jac last year.

    Brilliant birds, well suitable to accompany the world class birds – and they have improved again!

  2. You are certainly right Jos Reynders.

    I have visited Jac for the last three years and the improvement is amazing.

    Jac’s birds are world class, no doubt about that. It is well worth paying a visit.

    As a beginner, I have had the honour of meeting Jac when he judged at the Eire Budgerigar Society open show in beautiful County Kilkenny on Saturday 11th September 2010.

    Jac is a true gentleman and although I didn’t win anything this time, Jac’s talk and DVD really inspired me to focus on what lies ahead rather than what I have been doing i.e. looking at what had won in the past!

    Thank you Jac.
