Any Finch Breeders here on the Forum?

G'day everyone
Just wondering if there are any Finch breeders here?
If there are, say G'day and tell us a bit about your collection and your setup - I'm feeling a bit lonely here

To get started, might give everyone the run down what I have got:

I keep in regards to finches -
* African Red Billed Firefinches
* Orange Breasted Waxbills
* White Rumped Double Barred Finches
* Gouldian Finches
* Blue Faced Parrotfinches

And my most prized birds...

* Aberdeen Finches (Not many in Australia)
* Javan Munias (I'm one of a very few people who keep these in Aus)
* Black Rumped Double Barred Finches (Not many of these in Aus either)
* Red Strawberry Finches

I house my Aberdeens, Red Strawbs, Javan Munias, Black Rumped Double Bars and Blue Faced Parrotfinches in an aviary 5m long x 2.2m wide and 2.2m high
The other finches are housed in an aviary 3m long x 1.5m wide and 2.1m tall.

Cheers
Noah Till

Re: Any Finch Breeders here on the Forum?

I wish to one day keep Goulian finches, love the Wild Black headed form.
Most of the color mutations though are grotesque distortions of a naturally beautiful wild bird that comes in 3 different wild forms, 2 of which are absolutely stunning. Are they tough to keep? Perhaps I should start with Zebras and wait 2 years before taking on these colourful gems of the bird world.

Right now I cannot take on the commitment of pet birds due to various circumstances .

I am more of a Fish person as far as pets are concerned.

But am interested in this thread- hope someone responds.

Gouldians are a bit hard to get going, and when I got into them to start off with I had trouble with them, but now they are pretty easy
I keep the pure normal Blackhead Form, Pure normals are the best in my opinion, you just can't beat them in colour!!
Give Zebra Finches and Bengalese a go first, and once you get the hang of them you can then work your way up the finch 'ladder' and get some Gouldians!

Thanks

Re: Any Finch Breeders here on the Forum?

I'm not a breeder, but I do have 2 flights of finches. One is all Zebras, and the other has Gouldians, Bengalese, & Owl finches, as well as my 2 Bourke's.
I really love everything about finches, from their sounds to the community they create. I love watching them interact with each other.

Noah, you have so many awesome species! Your flights sound amazing too. Do you have any pictures you could share? I'd love to see your set-up and your birds.
