a small operation consisting of 50 breeding pairs of finches, these
comprise: lady gouldians, 3 types of parrot finches ( red throats, blue
faced, and forbes), our consecutive 5+
year award winning java finches ( now wth a best in show and second
best at Nationals, as well as chiyoda bengalese to name a few. This
population allows us to get to know each bird and it's needs
individually. They are not just a number or a dollar amount here but
a close family friend,
with an identity and lineage. We pride ourselves on our meticulous
and husbandry practices and once you've had a bird from us you'll see
we are sold out year after year, and why people come back repeatedly
for more fids
Our program is designed to allow gouldians to raise their own in
Unlike other gouldian breeders we strongly believe in leaving the
chicks in with the parents through to the next clutch which allows them
to witness how to breed and strengthens parental instincts that many
others do not allow their chicks to experience; removing them right
after weaning and depriving them of this fundamental life lesson.
is a Darwinist, an animal activist and a strong believer in hygiene in
the aviary. He has been breeding in
Acton, Ontario for fifteen years and has won several Show Titles back

Finches. Recently Ron received his secomf Best in Show title.
in Division Four Finches has earned him a place in the Avicultural
Advancement Council of Canada National Judges Panel. Ron believes in
spending most of his
free time helping others in all their avian pursuits.
guiding philosophy is that only through proper management and
can we as avian enthusiasts do our part in ending ecological species
devastation. Through these practices we should be able to create a
genealogical base and preserve the remaining wild populations in their
habitats and have an endless choice of pets for many generations to
come. Ecology begins with understanding.
also runs a very in depth gouldian
finch help group
on Yahoo with it's own
exclusive health files..many wroy-tten by Ron over the years, as well
as 3 lesser sites dealing, in the main, with
and buying of finches and canaries. He also contributes a great
deal of time to helping other gouldian groups on Yahoo.
biggest accomplishments are not the awards but
his constant search to
these wonderful creatures. He has successfully completed a course on
Sciences (diseases, emergency procedure, and hygiene) in record time,
a degree of Highest Honours (a 98% average) and he is currently working
on an avian biology degree. Ron has been an avian judge now for a
few years and really enjoys sharing his expertise with others at the
His Best in shows
in 2009 and
2012 are his pinnacles of breeding excellence, but that does not mean
more best in shows are not unattainable. As his knowledge and premium
flocks grow the skies the limit.
at Lady Gouldian Finch Canada we have many beliefs but the one that is
important to us is that we believe that we have an obligation to other
avian enthusiast to produce birds that are beneficial to the avian
community. These birds must be healthy, well bred and easily maintained
and they must also be able to produce others like themselves and to
rear their progeny so that they, in turn, will know how to rear their
own offspring. The biggest detriment to birds in the hobby is that they
are labelled "hard to breed", "temper mental" and "soft" but nothing
could be further from the truth. Once you try
our birds you will discover this for yourselves.
you buy our birds you are not only purchasing a companion but the piece
mind that comes from knowing you have the information to keep your
at it's peak condition for years to come.
bird/birds leaves this facility that is not usually the end, as
we enjoy answering all your avian questions to ensure the bird(s)'
optimal health and well being.
hope you enjoy this site and our birds as much as
enjoy bringing them to you.
