New Species! – Society Finches

new_society_finches

My new sweet Societies ūüôā

I am elated with this new forever pair I just got tonight through a private breeder. They are so very pretty, happy and just so sweet. And the male’s song is beautiful! I will have to think up some names for them soon.

As soon as I placed them in the warm and cozy bird room they fluffed their feathers, groomed each other lovingly and closed their eyes. I don’t think I could have asked for a better homecoming.

I placed some fresh boiled egg soft food as well as crushed eggshells in their cage and they ate the soft food up immediately. I’m sure they will still be working on the eggshells in the morning.

For the next few days of quarantine they will stay in their travel cage so there are no pretty flowers in their pictures as their usually would be.

Next week I am getting another Society pair as well as new pairs of zebra mutations. I can’t wait!

A New Season, A New Aviary.

Breeding is back in swing, and I will be posting updates on pairs and babies as they come. To reserve a pair, please contact me as I operate on a first come first serve basis.

Where have I been? Relocating, settling, relocating again is the gist of it. Now let’s focus on the what I’m going to do!

Coming Soon

  • All of my new cages are going to be organized in a home-made aviary. I’m incredibly excited about it! Something between these two:
       
  • Take new photos of the aviary and new pairs.
  • Adopt new species! I’m thinking Society and Owl Finches! Maybe even some Gouldians!

New pairs are coming soon..

Breeding is in progress in my aviary. Keep checking back for pairs coming soon!

Another year has almost passed! In the time it has taken since my last update, we have moved three times! It has been somewhat stressful, but everyone in the aviary is still happy and gorgeous as ever.

Needless to say, I have been resting the birds at every juncture, removing all eggs if parents needed a break and hand-raising them myself with a lot of success. Keeping them from having any stress has been my priority but it has given me a chance to get really close with the babies and juvies ūüôā This has meant lots and lots of sprouts, fruits and veggies, egg biscuits and anything else healthy and fun. Like hanging flower baskets to perch in while getting some out-of-cage time.

With the end of our current resting season drawing to a close, I have finally settled in and am ready to let everyone get back to their natural habits. I apologize for any inconvenience and time spent waiting for email replies and will be contacting everyone as soon as possible in the order I received the messages.

Until then I hope everyone continues to enjoy their summer!

Welcome!

For anyone who has ever tried to get their birds to use a nest box…

Can’t get your birds to use the nest box? Do they sit on top of it, or even build a nest on top of it?

Well I’ve found a solution!

When we last left the aviary, only Al & Aphrodite were nestbox-savy. Well I got very tired of it and decided to try to come up with a solution instead of waiting for everyone to figure it out. I researched it for hours on the net, and nothing. Apparently no one had a solution other than time.

Malarkey.

I opened the top of the nesting boxes that weren’t being used, put down some of each nesting material, and voila! Draven & Dhalia started building a nest in a box.

BUT Oedipus & Ophelia…still don’t get it. Nope, they now perch on the new vacation feeder from LGF.

Which brings me to my next point…

From LGF

This feeder thing, is amazing.

It catches the husks – no mess!

I’m in love.

And I use the little finger trays for everything else: f-vite, herb salad, tonic seed, powdered kelp…it’s freakin awesome.

I’m getting two more for the tonic seed. Oh yes.

Wish they had one for spray millet!

Adding to the Flock!

This Friday I’ll be getting a new pair, and a fledgling! They’re Black-cheeked Zebras, so they’re a bit unusual – which I like. They look like a black and white drawing or photo of a Zebra Finch to me.

I’ll be getting the new birds just a couple weeks before the aviary upgrade, so the pair will be housed in another cage.¬†I’ll be adding more to the flock soon.

I’ll also be adding to the site today, to include all the updates I’ve been talking about, along with some product information in the “What you’ll need…” section.

My little corner of the internet

As I get more and more into breeding my birds, and gather more species as time goes along, I’ve decided that – while I really do enjoy the one-on-one interaction with inquiries, I should still have a site available that people can visit and find out more about what I’ve got and what I’m all about before they contact me.

So here it is. I’ll be adding pages for pricing, availability, photos, information about me, and lineage all in due time.

How exciting! The name “Le Pinson Blanc,” is French for “The White Finch.” I chose it because my first pair of Finches, Oedipus and Ophelia, are both Chestnut Flanked Whites.

So enjoy your visit to my humble corner of the net, and stay and learn a thing or two about Finches, their care, and the birds that I’m currently breeding.

Thanks for coming!
