About us: Additional Information about the history of Frisky Finches.
Frisky Finch Aviaries has been breeding the “Lady Gouldian Finch” for 25 years and we have in excess of almost 50 years accumulated avian experience breeding various other species of birds from falcons to finches.
I have been a bird lover, owner and breeder for almost 50 years now going back to a young boy. I have owned virtually every species of smaller birds at one time or another in my life and many of the larger ones as well. As a young boy I partnered with an older mentor and together we were very successful breeders of racing pigeons. We won a large percentage of the races we entered and always had a flock of several hundred birds.
In my teenage years got into falconry and trained various species of raptors such as kestrels, coopers, red tail and harris hawks, great horned owls, prairie and even peregrine falcons before they were a protected species and I held a valid California State falconers license.
I then expanded my obsession with birds breeding quail, ducks, geese, chickens, doves and parakeets, crows, ravens, and likely several others I have forgotten over the years and virtually every species of colorful finch available. Yes, I had very tolerant parents who let me explore my passion for birds! We won’t get into the reptiles I have tinkered with or the other mammals.
About 25 years ago I was breeding 15 species of finches from all over the world and it became too difficult as many needed to be housed separately. Our Cuban melodeons were killing my fire and strawberry finches, some species were tossing babies out of other birds nests, the fighting had to stop, I was running out of cages and space so I decided to get rid of them all and focus on just one species, the Lady Gouldian Finch. The reason I chose this species, aside from being one of the most beautiful, was they were a challenge and had a reputation of not being very good breeders and that they die easily. It took me about a year to get them figured out, I lost a few the first year but once I got them figured out they proceeded to breed like crazy. In no time we had Gouldians coming out of my ears as they say.
Our flock today generally ranges from about 300 to 400 birds on average and reaches close to 600 to 700 at the end of the breeding season with all the new babies. We raise on average about 250 birds annually and have for over several decades now. I have literally raised and sold thousands of Gouldians over the years.
Our customers for years demanded that I share my secrets, experience and products with them so about 10 years ago I was forced to write down what I do and publish it on a website so our customers would have access to both my knowledge and products. To my surprise our internet business was born. For those customers who have been loyal throughout the years THANK YOU and for those just coming aboard we look forward to helping you attain your goals with keeping your birds happy, healthy and Frisky!
Additional information on our exclusive bird seed mixes for Lady Gouldian Finches, Canaries, Parakeets and all small seed eating birds.
We super charge our Premium Daily Breeder Seed Blend by turning it in a large mixer for several hours with all the “additional ingredients” listed below. This thoroughly coats everything with a fine vitamin, mineral and calcium powder which the birds get in their beaks after husking the seed. Birds do not have saliva so they ingest the powder when getting a drink of water.
Frisky Finches has been doing this with our bird’s seed for over 25 years now. I believe we are the only ones to offer this exclusive concept and it really helps to give the birds all they need in their daily nutritional requirements to be healthy and strong. Today’s seeds are grown on land that has been commercially farmed for decades, the soil has little mineral content left in it so supplementing your birds diet with additional vitamins, minerals and especially calcium is very important to maintain proper health. We feed our two seed blends to our Gouldians year round. These exclusive seed mixes are all the Lady Gouldian Finch needs in the way of seed food to stay healthy and maintain vibrant colorful feathers year round. The organic iodine we add also helps to prevent feather loss in Lady Gouldians.
