Hi Chris, there was an advert last year and they ranged from £1500 to £2500 a pair, depending on what species, could be dearer now. Peter might have a better answer when he reads your post. James.

Regarding the Hummingbirds, when the temperature drops low they go into a state of what is known as torpid semi hibernation to conserve energy until the temperature rises again.
In the early days of bird keeping birds that were in this torpid stage were thrown away in the belief that they were dead.

Dirty tricks were used on birds in exhibition/shows on nectar feeders where nectar would be sprayed on the oppositions bird/birds so that it set and the birds feathers look untidy :whistle:

Man found smuggling Hummingbirds.

They are very easy birds to keep in captivity. But you must remember that they defend there source of food so you need to supply at least one feeder per bird.
