  • Greens for finches – why, what and how to feed them – Gary Fitt
  • Gouldian Breeding Season – preparing and go – an experienced Gouldian breeder
  • My interest in finches – Brad Mayger
  • Bird Identification Quiz – test your knowledge

Our January meeting will feature four short items of interest to finch aviculturists.

Firstly, Gary Fitt will discuss the importance of leafy greens for most birds and the options to supply their needs. What you can feed and how to present it.

Secondly, an experienced Gouldian breeder will discuss the important preparations leading up to the start of the Gouldian breeding season and how to get the birds going.

Thirdly, new QFS Committee member Brad Mayger will explain his interest in finches, where he is now and where he hopes to develop. Finally, we will have one of our popular finch identification quizzes where you can test your knowledge and win a chocolate!

So, come along and learn something, contribute to the discussion and chat with colleagues. If you can’t make it, Zoom will hopefully be an option.
