New House, New Bird Room, New Finches!

Well after a hellacious time with our previous landlord, I’m finally free in a bigger, more beautiful new house! Everything happens for a reason, and after an incredibly negative experience my main goal for the new house was to find a better landlord (and house) altogether which I definitely accomplished. If you’d like to see photos of the new house, visit my Facebook page or add my personal profile here. I won’t be posting specific bird room photos on my public site any more for security reasons. I just couldn’t help myself last time!

I’m absolutely in love with this new house! With very kind landlords to boot, it just makes the whole ordeal perfect. There’s also lots of space and windows, much more so than in the last house. This also means that my Zebra Finch pairs are getting back into their breeding groove, some immediately and some are still getting used to the change. The Gouldians will have to wait until I build them their nest boxes in the next week or two. Continue reading

Now a member of the NFSS!!

Have you noticed a snazzy new addition to our website sidebar?? It’s a graphic I created to signify a new & life-long membership. 🙂 I just joined today so I haven’t ordered my leg bands yet but I will soon, and you can rest assured that I will be purchasing the plastic split version when I do vs the closed metal (which is prone to causing injuries). I will also be placing the leg bands in a separate bag for adopters unless they request that the bands be applied ahead of time. I don’t like to use leg bands unless I absolutely have to – i.e. when the juvenile aviary is filling up and I need to be able to tell offspring apart or if someone makes a special request.

I’m really excited about becoming a member!! Needless to say the NFSS is the epitome of perfection & standard for the rest of the Finch community. They not only actively advocate for all birds and Finches, but they also hold the most prestigious shows in the country. I can’t wait to soak up some knowledge from other members and pick their brains for information.
