Title: "Fertility in Finches"

Speakers: Brian Bohl (QLD)

Brian Bohl last presented to QFS in April last when he spoke on the intricacies of finch nutrition. That was an excellent presentation and this time Brian delves deeper to explore the determinants of fertility in finches. We all know the frustration of nests of clear eggs. Hopefully Brian can give some pointers to minimising that problem. Brian has qualifications in Applied Chemistry and has worked in this field for 40 years. He has also been a successful canary breeder and exhibitor since 2007. He has investigated in some detail the nutritional needs and issues for canaries to achieve good health, successful breeding and high fertility. In this talk, he will broaden his conclusions on fertility with finches. This will be another interesting talk don t miss it.

QFS Finch Conservation Program

We have previously outlined the QFS Finch Conservation Program. We now have young pairs of African Silverbills AND Javan Munias available to go to volunteer breeders who wish to participate in the Conservation Program. Provided you are willing to meet the conditions of the program you will be given two pairs of Silverbills or two pairs of Javan munias. All birds are DNA sexed. Silverbills are available at $35 a pair to cover the cost of DNA sexing. The Javan Munias are initially at no cost. They 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 African Silverbills, Gary Fitt. gary.fitt@bigpond.com or 07 32026779, for Javan Munias, Chris Leeper. chrisleeper@hotmail.com
