The first 2013 Hatchlings!

Left: Baby butt! Middle: A full crop means great parents. Right: Little hatchlings just waking up.

Left: Baby butt! Middle: A full crop means great parents. Right: Little hatchlings just waking up.

To my surprise and joy this morning, three very loud beggars were squeaking for food, one so loud it overshadowed some of the CFW males’ songs. Everyone in their flight cages craned their necks to try to see the first babies of the season.

They belong to Bronson & Bella (Fawn OB BB & BC CFW), my colony-raised and newer lovelies. It’s been quite the journey bringing these newer pairs into breeding condition, and I’m glad the day is finally here for their first fertile eggs to hatch. I’ll be able to tell in the next few days which will be white and which will be.. otherwise! This is a mixed clutch so the colors will be diverse. I’m excited to see how they will turn out!

Local Breeder Review ~ Patty’s Finches & Canaries

Breeder Reviews by Chelsea @ LPBA
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 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.

Patty’s Finches & Canaries – Silverdale, Wa.
Purchased: CFW, White
Also Available: Canaries & BC males
Pecking?: No
Bird Health/Quality: Fine
Current Status: Breeding only Canaries now

My Review: I found Patty on Craigslist when I first came to the area. After she contacted me to purchase hens I had to sample her services for myself. I was quite a bit wary about her breeding program at first but came to find she is a kind person and a member of the local Cascade Canary Breeder’s Association. She is no longer breeding Zebra Finches but she is still breeding Canaries.

I’m a bead artist of Native American decent and I have had several requests for beaded Eagle feathers. Non natives are not allowed by federal law to posses a real one. These are turkey feathers that are painted to resemble eagle feathers, thus Legal Eagle feathers. I bead the shafts of the feather in different colors and designs for the customer. I attach the leather so they can be worn in your hair, on a hat band, tied to horses manes and tails, saddles and bridles, or display and etc.  I do special orders for color, beads and designs. Please contact me, Marie, at dancingdeerdesigns@centurytel.net for pricing and availability.

I will be posting a new update soon that will contain new aviary and website additions including pictures of new pairs, offspring (when they hatch!) and the new bird room as well as new site features including breeder reviews. Keep an eye out for it!

Products for the Flock

As a lady with what I think of as a big heart, I love to spoil my pets. My dog has his own backpack complete with camelbak water packs, a cedar dog house, and toys that come in just about whenever I go out shopping [a couple times a month – I’m an e-shopper for the most part].

A Feline Solarium! (Original photo from thefelinesolarium.com)

My cats have their own play set in the laundry room, each has their own preferred litterbox, feeder and waterer, a heated sill and various sleeping accessories – soon with a feline solarium, too.

So needless to say that my birds get the best of the best. They’ve got a flight cage, a whole forest of silk tropical flowers, and lots of various little things to spoil them. When it comes to their food and vitamins, they’re doubly spoiled.

For all bird feeding, I recently graduated from a common Petco shopper to a Lady Gouldian shopper. The site has an incredible selection from everything a breeder or simple bird owner could possibly need – with things like grit to nest boxes and nesting materials to name a few.

And everything from this store is FRESH. It’s revitalizing to know that each seed is not stale, and would sprout on command. It’s also reassuring that they provide detailed information pages and reviews for each vitamin supplement – from fertilization aides to medicinal mixes.

With a long list of recommendations and success stories as well as stories from personal aviculture-savy friends, it is no wonder I love their products.

And wow, what products! My flock has been much more fertile and they love everything in their finger trays, treat cups, treat dishes and especially their seed feeders.

I highly recommend this site to breeders, owners, or anyone who is even thinking of purchasing a new bird. The site really covers everything, and even has a large supply of information – free of charge.

And I promise – they are not paying me to say this. I don’t get a discount and I’ve never met anyone at LG. I don’t even think they’ll even find out about my little endorsement. It just needs to be said, especially after how long it took me to find it and how many crappy products I had to suffer with until then.

So a huge thanks to the Lady Gouldian, a place where I’ll be shopping for the rest of my time as a bird owner/enthusiast.
