Hi Nirankush,

The average life span of a well cared for Gouldian is believed to be about nine years.

Thanks for visiting my site, Jeanie

how to tell the age of the adult gouldians?
by: Anonymous

Does anyone know how to tell the age of the gouldian finches when choosing the adult birds?
Thanks a lot.

Hi,


I hope others will add answers to your question also. I practised predicting ages by examining the legs and feet of many Gouldians. The young birds legs looked shimery and smooth to me and the older birds looked scaly and dried. The toenails should look fresh and not be over grown.

Thanks for asking, Jeanie
