Hello and Welcome to the My Gouldian Aviary website!
This hobby website was first published on the 4th December 2000. We hope to contribute to the promotion of the Gouldian finch and basically this website is an idiot’s guide to raising the Gouldian finch in an outside garden aviary. And for the record, the author considers him-self, the biggest idiot.
If this is your first visit to the website, it might be a good idea to grab a cup of tea or coffee and get comfortable, as there are many webpages to explore via the links situated at the top of the page menu.
This is a non-profit hobby site, so I do not sell anything here, but just recommend what I believe works. It is my desire to help you with the safe keeping of the Gouldian finch by sharing with you my experience of colony breeding the Gouldian Finch in our little garden aviary situated in Melbourne, Australia.
Our aim is to produce happy and healthy Gouldian Finches, in a natural garden setting to ensure the survival of our little and much loved home bred colony that has been going since 1995.
We only house the normal coloured Gouldians with the red, black and yellow (orange) head colours. Over the years we have developed a strong colony strain of free breeding Gouldians that are all descended from our very first purchase, a red headed male Gouldian who we dearly remember as the mighty,
Montezuma (aka), Monte.
You should find the website easy to navigate around. If you find any problems please email us.
Enjoy the photos but please do not steal them, as others have done in the past to make money from them. Hence, the copyright warnings throughout the Website. There are always a few bad apples that take advantage. C'est la vie...
Anyway, on a more brighter note, we hope you enjoy the Website and find it of some benefit in your quest to successfully house this truly social and glorious Australian grass finch. Enjoy...
