Step 10: October – Continue the breeding regiment
By Gary & Barbara Solomon, Frisky Finches - Copyright 2006
Continue with the breeding regiment with all the nutritional supplements, hatchling food, seeds and nesting materials through the end of November/December.
Again, you could just leave the breeding/winter mix in year round to simplify things if you like.
It usually takes 6 to 8 month for your young birds to get their colored feathers. A lot or most of them will not even molt into color until the following spring.
