Breeder Review ~ The Finch Fanatic

Breeder Reviews by Chelsea @ TWFA
Often times I will get messages from people asking me where they can find a bird that I don’t have or a mutation I don’t have readily available. I am happy to pass along those people to the best possible options for them based on my experiences with other breeders. In the Breeder Review section is where you can read about all of my experiences as a buyer and recommendations to help you in your search to adopt the healthiest and highest of quality feathered friend. All reviews are assigned a general rating with 4 being the highest.

My Review: I want to give this breeder 10 *’s instead of just 4! She has not only given me some of the most wonderful Zebras and made TWFA what it is today, she has also recently placed twice in the 2013 West Coast Zebra & Society Finch show. That is not an easy feat to say the least!

She placed for her Florida Fancies, and needless to say I am in love with mine. I contacted her at the start of the 2013 season looking for Phaeos and a couple of other colors as a Valentine’s Day present from my fiance, and her response was basically “give me a list of your dream colors, and I will make it happen.” She definitely did! And with a hugely discounted price for multiple pairs, I feel like I got the deal of a lifetime.

All of the coloring on each of the birds I adopted from her are unique & stunning, exactly what I wanted. She also included some combinations that I hadn’t thought of and are pure genius, such as my LB BF BC boy Leo who produces LB CFWs (rarely). She has also lent her advanced genetics skills which I will have to take her up on this season as I start working with 3rd and fourth generations. She’s very personable yet professional and it’s been a joy to correspond with her. Whenever I make it down to the LA area again I will take her up on her offer to visit her aviary. It’s very lovely in her photos and I’m sure filled with some color combinations I haven’t seen before.

Overall, I would VERY HIGHLY recommend her breeding services to anyone looking for superior quality Zebra Finches. It has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my flock and I will continue to use her for years to come. It’s because of her stock that TWFA has become what it is today, and I cannot imagine coming this far without it.
