Step # 11 - November - 12 Steps to Success Breeding Gouldian Finches
11. November –
Start winding down the breeding season
The first week of November you stop the liquid regiment of vitamins and
calcium and put your birds back on plain water.
If you have babies in the nests you should wait till they leave the nest as removing some of the nest boxes may disturb the adults and they may abandon any remaining babies.
Again, you could just leave the breeding/winter mix in along with the daily Gouldian seed mix year round to simplify things if you like.
