I’ve kept and bred birds without significant breaks for over 50 years. I’ve flown racing pigeons , kept and bred budgies, Scarlet Chested Parakeets , Golden and Lady Amherst Pheasants, Gouldian, Diamond Sparrows, Zebras and Peales Parrot finches. I’d like to encourage anyone interested in keeping small birds to join the NFSS Community. There is a wealth of useful information and a community that shares your interests. NFSS shows provide an opportunity to meet other breeders exchange ideas and see a range of small avian species broader than many zoos exhibit. Our Forum and Finch/Softbill save groups promote conversations from husbandry to genetics. Join us.
