A couple of years later, I'm still working as hard to achieve a wonderful collection of healthy and happy
The winter of 2004 was a tough season here in Southern California. It was very cold and very wet for a long
time. Most of my female goulds died that winter and by Spring of 2005, it became another problem to find
decent breeding hens and outside raised.
Received a voice message from Karen of La Brea, CA. (which I bought seven lady goulds from her early this
year), and could not believed what she had offered me when I returned her call that evening. She said that
she's giving me all her birds including all the breeding cages and accessories. She told me that she feels that I
will take good care of her precious birds and honestly I will. All together she gave me 22 healthy lady gouldians
mostly white breasted and 3 strawberry finches to add to my collection. I waited a couple of days before I let
them in the outdoor aviary. It took them almost half the day to feel comfortable with the rest of the flock.

I Love it, the birds love it. Finally, summer in Southern California. Another addition to my aviary. I call it the
"Rain forest / SPA" 4' x 8'x 6' with misters and drinking station. It is fun to watch them fly over the mist or
perch under and get wet.
Another beautiful hot month. The goulds loves it. There's a total of five babies that came out healthy in
addition to the three babies that we hand fed. I will keep the tamed hand fed babies until spring time then I
will introduce them in the aviary.
