  1. Tips on entering young hounds

    Start them with old slow hounds that know the score. Hound will learn far more from another hound than you could ever teach them If your lucky to have a good old hound your set. If not just keep giving then the opportunate to have wins like finding a rabbit at the end of the trail.
  2. Breeding Just Getting Under Way

    Well the Thanks Gripper canaries have done well this year, The parrot finches are just going down for their 2nd nest , the Goudlians are just starting , the cockateils have had several nests and plenty of young how ever the biggest let down have been the Princes parrots and the dam budgies of all things.

    No the Lady Gouldian finch is an Aussie its habitat is found in northern Australia.
  9. Breeding Just Getting Under Way

    Yes Neil when Ive had them in the past. just getting back into them. A beautiful bird but I'm lead to believe you need to put the eggs under foster hens, Mannikans are usually used ? The biggest problem is that they come from the very hot climate of the Northern territory and do not have down feathers so even here in Australian it can be to cold for them and they hate a draughty aviary. the wrong conditions and they will fall of the perch. They are self breeders here and a very common aviary bird. right up there for one of the best looking birds. The diamond doves are great they are no trouble and and only add to the Aviary .

  12. Rhodesian Ridgeback Bushing

    And yet I have had ridgebacks for 37 yrs I've hunted with them raced them shown them and never had a problem with anyone of them with biting the optimum weight is usually about 10lb less them most pet people keep them at. As with any large breed it is more about the owners being capable dog managers than it is about the dogs themselves.
