Attached is a pic of 8 baby (healthy) Gouldian’s, just wondering what is the largest single nest others have had and raised. These little guys have a way s to go, but with so much green seed abounding, I don’t think there will be too many problems.

8 is a good haul. Six is probably where my pairs max out.

I had a nest of 12 babies two years ago. I believe it was two best friends raising them together. They fledged 11 babies :happy:

(don't know how to attach photos ? Do they have to be on the web already ?)

If you click the "Full Editor & Preview" button you'll see an image upload form. I believe you can also just drag and drop them onto the response box.
