Great work. From my understanding most goldfinches in the market are wild caught making them pretty pretty flighty so getting them to breed in a cabinet gains you extra bonus points in finch heaven.

Thanks for the well wishes and kind comments guys.I guess I am the resident Goldfinch man on this forum.I am keen to help anyone out there if they seek regarding these birds.It's kinda lonely with not many goldfinch breeders or keepers in Australia.The love comes from my European background as I was exposed to these birds growing up in Croatia where these birds are very much in their culture.

I think chicory green food has been the key and lucky to have an awesome hen. Expect few more photo's as they come.

Great Job, its a difficult task to breed Goldfinches like that in Australia.
