Welcome to the web site for the New Zealand Finch Breeders Association
Here are some if not all of the different types of finches you might find in New Zealand in our gallery of images
From Web admin (Jane):
Thinking you are too old/young/busy/inexperienced/not knowledgable enough to keep finches - but hey you saw some and loved the look of them?? Give it a go!
For May we are sharing an article from our magazine from 2010 written by member Cherry Gaddes.
Also featured is another summary of information collated and contributed by Cath Jones from our magazine in 2010.
Don't forget to check back regularly. For June, NZFBA member Kim Field, has kindly agreed to share his knowledge and expertise on the breeding of several species. Kim has lived in the northern regions of Australia where many of the native finches roam free. He has through his knowledge of their wild habitat and experience with translation to New Zealand conditions, developed successful breeding programs for several species including Parsons and Siskens.
