Planet Aviary Gouldian & Australian Finch Breeding Seed Mixture.

For Gouldian Finches and other medium to large size Australian Finches.

What is it?

This is a highly specialised seed mixture formulated to mimic the seasonal availability of foods for the Gouldian Finch and other Australian Finches that are native to the Northern-Belt of Australia. The Breeding Seed Mixture represents the conditions in the wild after the wet season has begun and food has become varied, highly nutritional and abundant. We feed this seed to our Gouldian Finches.

Contains Silk Sorghum, Signal Grass and Phalaris. Now available through Planet Aviary for the first time in Europe. Wild Sorghum grass seed varieties are the main part of the wild Gouldian finches staple diet.

When do I feed it?

Begin feeding the The Breeding seed Mixture once the Austerity seed diet has ended.  After 6 weeks of being fed The Breeding Seed mixture your birds are ready for pairing and breeding, continue to feed the breeding seed mixture for the rest of the duration of the breeding season (A further four and a half to five months). During the the breeding diet it is recommended to offer your birds other supplements and foods daily, including egg-food, oystershell/grit and fresh veg & greens.

Switch to an Austerity diet for two weeks once your breeding is over, this will help to induce the molt for your birds. After this 2 week period is complete return the birds back to the full breeding diet for 6 weeks to assist their nutritional requirements from the demands that molting has upon their bodies. After this 6 week period is over and your birds have molting into their new vibrant plumage, move them onto the Gouldian & Australian Maintenance Seed Mixture.

    Found this food by accident. So glad I did! I keep gouldian finches and diamond doves so they have a similar diet. Spending a fortune on X3 different mixes to provide the best diet. This food is excellent quality and has everything they need in it. Definitely my go to food in future.
