    Ya they came from a fox hound bitch breed to a swedish hound. Handy for a hunter in sweden with the restrictions they have.

    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.

    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.

    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 .
