Well done. It must be in the air, a friend had a clutch of Red Polls out lately. If I ever got back into them I'd love to breed pure finches. 

Nice one.

I've bred siskins and redpolls for the first time this season and my canaries have done absolutely shite.

I'll probebly get up to Newark for a nose about rather than to buy as such but at the moment my aviary is empty mate,as you know i lost a good few to a rat attack and i just thought now's the chance to pull it down and get a decent concrete base down and rebuild the whole thing and start afresh as it were.I'm aiming to just to keep a couple of pairs of somethings in a mixed flight and have a quiet back to basics time for a while.Again well done on your birds and they got to be happy to produce like that and keep up the grand work mate and deffo keep the pics coming 👍..

Wow that's brilliant mate  glad you have had a great season mine has been a complete disaster this year, out of three pairs I have had loads of deaths, broken eggs, and hens which have gone egg bound and lost. I have learnt a lot of lessons the hard way this year for next season,  but I suppose you can't have all your own way all the time. But I think fingers crossed I might just,  might get two young  fledged this week coming  with a bit of luck. And that's the only two, but two is better than none. But it is great to see nice pictures of healthy young birds well done mate your photos are great
