Title: "Red-browed finches - thinking outside the square"
Vic Boorman (QLD)
Vic is well known as a long-time member of
QFS and has been keeping and breeding finches for over 50
years so brings a wealth of experience to this presentation.
A short time ago Vic decided to try to work out the breeding
requirements of the Red-browed finch. Very few aviculturists
have actually managed to breed the Red-browed. With a number
of innovative changes Vic was successful. Whether he has
found the key for regular breeding will be revealed in this
presentation. So come along to learn about red-browed
finches. Obviously this will also be our Christmas meeting
so please bring along a plate of Christmas fare to share.
QFS Finch Conservation Program
DO YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE?
JAVAN MUNIAS AND YELLOW SISKINS NOW AVAILABLE
We have previously outlined the QFS Finch Conservation Program. We now have young pairs of Javan Munias and Black headed Yellow Siskins available to go to volunteer breeders who wish to participate in the Conservation Program and breed these birds on behalf of QFS. Provided you are willing to meet the conditions of the program you can obtain two pairs of Javan Munias or Yellow Siskins. Where necessary the birds are DNA sexed. Both species are available at $35 a pair as a contribution to the operation of the program, but the birds remain the property of QFS. Birds are available to QFS members ANYWHERE in Australia. Both species are easy to breed and no trouble in an aviary. If you are interested please contact the relevant coordinator for each species: Javan Munias - Chris Leeper, firstname.lastname@example.org , Yellow Siskins Ron Porter, email@example.com

and tried hard to win in the raffle.

QFS meeting in your region just contact the President and put
