Re: Any Finch Breeders here on the Forum?

Don’t forget to post pics of your uber-cute finch babies, I’m sure they’ll be breeding up a storm real soon!

I most certainly will! Extremely cute they are, especially the Orange Breasted Waxbill, as they are the smallest finch available in Australia

Few beings are more beautiful and enchanting than little finches. I also had a few canaries along the way. I always enjoy hearing about members' little guys. Thank you for sharing! Thank you, thank you!
Wow, never knew that, what sorts of finches were you working with if you don't mind me asking?
It's a thing that a lot of people don't know, is that how Aussie breeders hold some of the last captive stocks and get the best breeding results from so many finches, such as Whydahs and Green Strawberry Finches and many others, Australian finch aviculture is one of the greatest success stories for Finches.
I love my finches so much (not as much as Scomo though!), and it's so nice to sit down with a cold drink in front of the aviaries and watch finches display and fly around making nests and exploring every corner of the aviary.
Thankyou for the lovely comments!
Thanks

Thank you so much Scott!
It's a really depressing thing, but Bird Breeders, notably finch breeders are a dying race, and the main birds being produced are from all the old blokes, but they're even falling off the perch

True ! There should be more of Finch breeders and less of Cockatoos, Grey parrots and Amazon breeders.

Exactly right
I mean, its true that Finches require A hell of a Lot more work, but I never have a problem with it and the rewards of seeing a couple young ones on the perch far outweighs the problems, and I find it hard to believe people don't get any satisfaction about that (especially nowadays)
Cheers
