The first 2013 Hatchlings!

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.

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 🙂 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!

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!
