The Gouldian Finch: by Stewart Evans (Author) & Mike Fidler (Author)

This authoritative work gives complete coverage of all aspects of Gouldian Finch keeping with special emphasis on breeding, feeding, fostering, color mutations, acclimatizing new stock, diseases and behavior patterns. 

As the Gouldian Finch has become domesticated its popularity among aviculturists throughout the world has grown at a tremendous pace.  It is now probably more widely kept and bred than the Zebra Finch, yet there have been, until now, no up-to-date and comprehensive text on keeping and breeding these colorful birds.  This book covers all aspects of this beautiful bird.

Note:  Pages throughout this book are yellowed due to age.
