Title: "Breeding African Waxbills - my approach - Take 2

Speakers: Peter James (QLD)  

Peter James has been part of QFS since soon after its inception and has a wealth of knowledge on finch breeding techniques and the art of showing. While we often discuss the rare or difficult species, Peter is very keen to see more, younger people in aviculture and in this talk he will cover some of the basic techniques he uses in breeding African waxbills mostly species very suited to new birdkeepers. This will be Peter s second attempt to deliver this presentation as technical difficulties struck last time. It will be a fascinating and informative talk of value to all, so come along and cheer Peter on!
