More New Hatchlings~

Now it truly feels like a real breeding season!

On a whim I decided to try to foster some eggs from Zebra Finch parents who aren’t very attentive when it comes to incubation.

And of course, Big Mama and Papa made it work! Four happy little squeaking babies hatched yesterday and I watched hatchling #5 inside their egg moving vigorously just now.

Hatchlings are almost ready to become fledgelings!

The first clutch of the season has been an eventful one of course! Still not sure how they will look exactly but I know they will be beautiful. ūüôā

Today I saw 4 very well fed babies poking their heads out of their nest as they gather their courage to fledge. Parents Bella & Bronson (BC CFW & Fawn OB BB) are starting to lure them out with low chirps as they try to encourage them to venture out of their cozy home. It’s a happy surprise to see all 4 of their eggs hatched and were tended to so well.¬† Continue reading

Breeder Review ~ The Urban Finch

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.

The Urban Finch – Northern Ca.
Purchased: OB BB Fawn, BC CFW, FF/Phaeo, Eumo, BF, Penguin
Also Available: Owl, Gouldian and others
Pecking?: No
Bird Health/Quality: Excellent
Current Status: Breeding
My Review: Definitely my favorite breeder thus far! Very personable, knowledgeable and fun to engage in conversation. Her prices are generous to say the least and the quality of her birds, fantastic. I am so happy with my new pairs and I cannot wait to place another order, and another! Her colony-raised pairs produce some very interesting offspring that cover most if not all mutations. She also has some mixed pairs whose young break the stereotypes of what mutations are “supposed” to look like – which is a sign of a talented breeder in my opinion! A wonderful breeder, a nice person and a great experience for me overall.¬†(more pictures to come after the update)

Happy New Year! ~ New Mutations & Toys to Celebrate

happynewyears-finch

~ Happy New Year everyone! ~

I hope everyone’s holidays have been and will continue to be jolly & fabulous! Inside the aviary here we have been celebrating and eating, eating and also eating. Ham on Christmas, steak on new years and soft food for everyone winged – yummy!

My new Fawn, Orange Breast and Penguin mutations have arrived and are settling in nicely. I was so excited to get them, they are so spectacular! I cannot wait to take pictures of them. For now, here is a quarantine cage candid of a rather handsome Fawn OB BB who has such a unique and lovely song. I’m still developing names for them as I see their personalities shine.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,0fawnobbb
And gie’s a hand o’ thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!

I’ve also recently stumbled across some adorable new toys from Prevue that I will most certainly be buying for all of my cages. They’re just so¬†irresistibly¬†cute! They’re from a set appropriately named “Birdie Decor.” In their own words: Birdie D√©cor toys turn your cage into a home for you pet bird.”¬†
