I try and breed a few siskins, greenies, goldies , redpolls every year and always have about eight pair of irish fancy's on the go as well.
I bred white Irish fancy's last year and have three hens paired up to cock siskins this year to try and breed blue mules which I think are a lovely mule but not much use on the show bench.
Greenie mules have become very popular on the bench so giving these a try as well but really should be using a norwich canary because the irish fancy is too small, this is my first year to concentrate on mules so fingers crossed.

I'd like to see a caged bird section too. :yes: I don't keep them myself, (no room) but I've grown up around them via my uncle & granddad.

BUMP!
