Gouldians breed in all parts of Australia from around Feb to Sep. But in saying that if they are not in breeding condition they might stuff around a bit. The hens beak needs to be black to be in condition but if they are yellow backs their beak doesn't change colour so it's a bit hit and miss.

Plenty of calcium, seeding grasses and privacy and they'll breed well

Make sure they are well protected from cold winds at this time of year, and have access to a nice warm spot for early morning sunbathing. Enjoy.
