Gouldians were originally found in the northern savannah region
of Australia. It is a strikingly colorful bird with most having
a purple chest, yellow breast and green back. Easily sexed, females
are duller than males when they become adults. The juveniles are
olive, grey and brown until their first moult when they display
their adult coloration.
Gould, discoverer of the Lady Gouldian finch, was so impressed by
the bird’s gorgeous plumage that he named it the ‘Lady Gouldian
finch’ after his late wife. The Lady Gouldian is also known as the
Care and Feeding:
Lady Gouldians are easily kept in good health on a diet of a high
quality finch mix. Occasionally giving them spray millet and an eggfood
mix will keep them healthy and give them extra energy. They will need
an adequate supply of fresh, clean water changed at least every other
day. A good rule of thumb is if the water does not look clean enough
for you to drink then change it.
Breeding: The hen lays 5 to 8 small white eggs
and parent birds share incubation duties. The eggs hatch in approximately
13 to 17 days. The hatchlings have grey and brown colored down.
The young birds fledge at approximately 22 days and the parents
will start to wean babies around 40 days. The young birds should
not be removed from their parents until they have been out of the
nest at least four weeks.
