Gouldian Finch breding - how to tell if a gouldian hen is ready for mating

I want to learn the basics of gouldian finch breeding and I also wanted to know how to tell if a gouldian hen is ready for mating?


For best results, the hen should be at least 1 year old and just finished molting. Her beak tip is likely to darken and she will sit contentedly beside the cock on the same perch quivering her tail feathers and sort of bowing toward him as he does his wonderful courtship dance.
Hope this helps you.
