The YORKE Website For Bird Software and Information Has Moved !

Well, thanks to my old webhosting service provider ceasing that part of their business, my old website for the last several decades has had to move to a new web address.

The long, web address is http://yorkestuff.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/  , but as that is a little hard to remember and type, the easier shortcut to this new address is http://bit.ly/yorkestuff2 .  Both addresses land at the same YORKE home page. Google searches for various YORKE bird products, information and articles etc may reference Amazon, as my site is now hosted by Amazon Web Services (the world’s largest cloud computing company), but my site is in no way associated with Amazon.com (the large internet book and product retail site)

The new website still contains free information, articles etc on budgerigars, birds and other things, as well as the well established commercial software and minerals offerings for bird breeders and exhi bitors. If you have any existing internet browser bookmarks to the old site, change them to the new site address http://bit.ly/yorkestuff2 .

To celebrate the new website, ALL ORDERS FOR SOFTWARE (not minerals) paid for via the website’s secure PAYPAL shopping cart will GET A 20% REBATE refunded back to your PAYPAL account when the order is processed.

BIRDREC 8 – The ultimate computerised bird record keeping system

AVIAN GENETIC CALCULATOR – Parrot and finch genetics

BUDGEN 5 – Budgerigar illustrator and genetic calculator

BUDGERIGAR VARIETY BIBLE 2nd Edition – The most comprehensive book on budgerigar colours & varieties ever written.

THE SHOW MANAGER 4 – Exhibition management

EQUINE GENETIC CALCULATOR – Horse and donkey genetics.

All the above software products get 20% rebate. This rebate offer expires 31 January 2024. All software are supplied on USB memory sticks and mailed via Australia Post.

Please look around and enjoy the new site.

ANBC Website Change

Due to iiNet ceasing to have a Domain section in their company, the ANBC had to source a new Domain to carry our website. I wish to advise a new domain has been sourced and the new website for the ANBC is www.anbc.org.au It is now up and running and the old website no longer will activate. Please inform all your zone contacts, clubs etc and have all club websites list the new website.

CHANGE OF CLUB MEETING PLACE & HALL.

We are pleased to announce that our club events will now occur at the Plenty Hall – 21 Memorial Drive, Plenty.
This is just off Yan Yean Road and only 5 minutes from the end of the Metropolitan Ring Road.
This hall is twice the size of the old hall. It’s another fine, heritage-style, timber hall. It boasts ample parking as well as many other great features. There is even a popular café and coffee shop a short walk away (approx 50 meters).
