G'day everyone
Just wanting to know what sales hold the largest arrays of finches in Queensland and NSW (Excluding Club sales like the QFS etc)
I heard Orange this year was pretty disappointing with regards to Finches
I have heard Gunnedah would be one of the Best sales for finches, with lots of big time breeders admitting lots and attending

Any ideas would be much appreciated :thumbup:

Cheers

I was about to say QFS sale.... I went to Birdfest held by the QLD Bird Breeders Club inc. and that was disappointing in terms of finches (a lot of neophemas though), only 4 finch stands in total which was very disappointing, 2 of which were just Zebbies, so not much variety in terms of finches.

I'm going to the Gold Coast bird sale on the 29th March in hope of some Plumheads, so hopefully it's better finch-wise...

I have heard a lot of good things at Gunnedah for finches, have seen people mentioning a lot of rarities there like Rufous backs and Pin tailed Whydahs and Orange cheeks and Black rumped Double bars just to name a few
