STUDIES WERE A HUGE SUCESS, WE HAVE AVAILBLE BABIES FOR ADOPTION

My most recent study was conducted on a series of pairs- where I used a Advanced Nutrition Protocol on the pairs 1 month prior to breeding and throughout the development of the young. The control group was raised soley by the parents on commcerial finch diet supplimented with multivitamin and egg food/sprouted seed.

 

Advanced nutrition comprises a wide scale manipulation of the diet to enhance development. The details are explained throughout this website, but generally: delivery of nutrients was changed for faster absorption, protein content was increased by 20% 1 month prior to breeding, and protein was also increased by 10% for the clutch as they developed. Key vitamin compounds were added, which included essential amino acids, A, E, trace minerals, iodine and B vitamins.

 

Overall the findings were overwhelmingly positive: This allows us to understand the importance of not only selective breeding for health and mass, but also for dietary needs.

 

 

Conclusion: Resulted in a average of 10% overall increase in bodyweight of the young. The fledglings had increase in feather density estimated at 22% and advanced developmental rates- such as balance and coordination including perching and flying, approximately 3 days ahead of other groups. They showed a expedited weaning ability and stronger song characteristics.

The second phase of the study will be taking place now. I am personally very excited to see the results. But in the meantime, so many birds have been born, and there are non-tame eurpopean finches avialable for adoption. For immediate adoption we have:

Cream

Fawn (one giant male)

Lightback

Phaeo

Blackbreasted Fawn

Penguin

We are looking to find homes for these birds as soon as possible to make room for the upcoming clutches. If interested please let me know as soon as possible and they can be photographed and delivered by curiour immediately.


I am also proud to announce we have multiple new clutches which should hatch in about 13 days. Very soon the babies that will be availble are:

Lightback

Cream

Silver (dominent dilute)

Blackface

Blackbreasted/Fawn

Penguin

If you want to preorder a hand fed bird, please let me know so I can reserve for you!
