Well the price of Plain canary and white millett in WA is skyrocketing. This price was quoted earlier today.
If you are a farmer in the southern half of WA strongly advise you put 100/1000 acres under birdseed.

The premium finch mix in Toowoomba, without oilseeds is still fairly reasonable at $46 a 20kg bag

It's been raining here off and on all day. While the season is late, it is average rainfall.

Here in Brissie we've gotten absolutely no rain, 300mm less than what we're supposed to be getting and 2kg of finch mix is $7, which equates to 20kg being $70 (for reasonable quality) and I think Coles does it for about $6 per 2kg which would mean 20kg is $60.

We haven't had bugga all rain in Perth and Mandurah this year. Even the wind has changed. It's normally windy for 9 months of the year in Mandurah where I am now but this year we have had about 1 month with wind and the rest has been absolutely dead calm. And I am 100 meters from the ocean.

The flying ants left early too this year. They were swarming a couple of weeks ago and a crow was sitting on my driveway picking them up 1 at a time as they were coming out. He had a great time. :)

"Finchbreeder where abouts is the midwest of West Aust. Can you give me a town name"
The City of Greater Geraldton - previously the City of Geraldton and Shire of Greenough. Which is a City in theory more than practice. Lots of our so called City is farmland. Which is great by me but the name gives a false impresion. Come and buy yourself 3/3.5 hectares for $150,000 - mixed farming, fishing and mining area. But the mining went down the gurgler along with the price of property a couple of years ago. So now it's all lovely and cheap and a great place to live and retire. And the mining is slowly recovering.
