Finches Breeders: The Right Way of Breeding Finches

Professional finches breeders have great merit for developing advanced techniques for proper keeping pet finches and offering them all necessary conditions for producing healthy and happy offspring. Today successful breeders are the main reason why many types of birds are widespread in almost all parts of the world. Business with exotic birds captured in their native countries and after that smuggled through the borders is an inhuman and illegal business in much legislation. Inhuman aspect lies in the fact that captured birds that have lost their freedom forever have deep problems to accommodate to life in captivity. Exhaustion during long journeys conducted in poor conditions is another serious problem for birds. I will also mention that many birds get serious injuries during the process of capturing.

Bird breeders are here to make all needed things properly and legally. Breeding is not that complicated if you know the exact way how to do that. This means an important amount of high-quality knowledge is necessary, otherwise things could go wrong. Renowned breeders usually have a lot of experience and they are ready to deal with various problems that may occur during the process of producing offspring. They also have a lot of information about bird health, general and specific behavior and their various needs, so that is the main reason why you should buy finches from people who posses that kind of knowledge and experience.

Devoted breeders usually have a lot of birds kept in aviaries or cages. They excellently know how to keep finches healthy and satisfied, providing their homes with everything they need. Otherwise, birds could become unhappy and even angry due to improper conditions of keeping and breeding. Breeding is more complicated than a simply keeping and it requires more specific conditions which will supply the birds with all they need to start to court and mate. Selective breeding is an interesting method which enables producing controlled offspring, and experienced breeders use it to get what they exactly want.

Of course, it is true that professional breeders of finches make money by selling young birds, but they have to do that with love and devotion, without neglecting any other aspect of their birds' lives. For example, birds must have enough room for short flights and exercises, all necessary foods should be there, no matter if the birds are breeding or not. Breeders who really love their birds take a proper care for those that are sick or too old for breeding. A good breeder is always ready to pay for medicaments which cost more than bird's selling price. Breeding finches is not only about money, it's about love and commitment; it's a style of living rather than an ordinary job.

I was talking about the people who breed birds on a professional level. Of course, beginners and people without much experience are able to do it successfully too. You can make a successful breeding with a single pair of birds at your home, but you have to be sure that you know the right way. Always keep in touch with people who are ready to give you helpful tips and help you if some problem occurs. People who don't have experience with breeding finches should start with some of the easiest for breeding and zebra finches are widely recommended.

I know people who are renowned breeders now, making a large success with producing happy little chicks. A friend of mine, who started breeding four couples of owl finches 20 years ago, had disappointing results as more than a half of the chicks failed to survive. And it was his mistake, because in that time he was too confident that he is doing the right way and he didn't try to learn more. After that, he learned the lesson. Breeders should be always ready to exchange opinions about the quality of their finches' lives. Everyone who has decided to keep and breed finches or other birds should be in touch with other breeders.
