Lady Gouldian

Chloebia gouldiae
Lady Gouldian Finch Lady 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.

John 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 rainbow finch.

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.
