Introduction to the Lady Gouldian Finch
By Gary & Barbara Solomon, Frisky Finches - Copyright 2006

Let me start by saying the Lady Gouldian Finch is not for the beginning bird enthusiasts. If you are not willing to do your homework, purchase and provide the products necessary to maintain their proper health you should probably consider the zebra finch or society finches which are both very hearty and resultant birds for those wanting to start a new hobby.

It is our belief that the elements in the environment of Northern Australia , where the Lady Gouldian Finch originated, are very different than that of most other parts of the world. Because of this Gouldian finches must have higher quantities of certain vitamins, calcium’s, minerals and trace elements made available to them at all times in captivity to maintain proper health.

These nutritional supplements were abundant in the water, soil and seeds they consumed daily while being in the wild. We have found that if the Lady Gouldian finch is presented with the proper seeds and nutritional supplements needed in captivity they will thrive and produce abundant healthy offspring.

We here at Frisky Finches have formulated and tested our own special blend of seed mixes and powered nutritional supplements which we have used for many years on our birds to produce proven success breeding the Lady Gouldian Finch.

All of the seeds, nutritional supplements and other products contained within this article are actually used at Frisky Finches with our own birds to produce such tremendous results and are now available for purchase online in our shopping pages.

Our seeds are purchased in bulk directly from the grower and are guaranteed to be fresh and packaged daily upon being ordered.

We also offer a good selection of breeding supplies to help you replicate the success we have with the Lady Gouldian Finch.
