Step # 7 - July - 12 Steps to Success Breeding Gouldian Finches

7. July - Continue with the breeding regiment

     Starting the month of July through October we reduce the liquid vitamin and calcium regiment and alternate this formula to every other week or skip a week in between and give the birds just plain water for the full week, one week on (4 days on the vitamins & calcium, 3 days off and continue with pure water the following week), an additional week off.  In other words you will only be treating your birds with liquid supplements for 2 weeks out of the month.

     Clean out and replace the nesting materials and poultry dust in any nest boxes not being used.  Watch your birds closely to be sure the nest boxes are not being used or there are not any birds interested in them or looking inside them for nesting when replacing nesting materials. 

     Cleaning out the used nesting boxes helps to increase the available box selection for your birds and will help to improve your over all breeding success.  Some Gouldians will not continue to use their old dirty box once itís abandoned from a previous batch of babies and will seek out a new clean one after the young birds leave the nest box.

     Remember to keep the serving dishes and water containers clean and continue to maintain proper loft hygiene.
