Title: "My Great Experiences with Finches"
Speakers: Adrian Baker (QLD)
Our December meeting features member Adrian Baker. Adrian will talk about his journey from having a couple of chooks and budgies to building 3 aviaries of finches in his back yard. Adrian details how just a couple evolved into an obsession. He talks about the learning curve as a beginner and how his love of finches have changed his outlook on life.
QFS Finch Conservation Program
DO YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE?
SILVERBILLS AND JAVAN MUNIAS NOW AVAILABLE
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. firstname.lastname@example.org or 07 32026779, for Javan Munias, Chris Leeper. email@example.com
