Why are gouldian finches so expensive?

Post by kylie83 »

I have a pair that i'm taking care for my aunt is in holiday vacation. They fetch so much price ..i check on internet and per store...

but why? The society finches are so cheaper than them and both of them are same except coloring!

it'd be very easy to breed gouldians just like societies.so why so much price?

Hey Kylie,
The Gouldian finch is one of the most expensive and difficult bird to breed and one of the most colorful, most breeders use Society finches as foster parents to hatch an rear young Gouldians,

They are in terms a "fragile" bird to breed and demand a quiet spot with little disturbance, for some more good information on Gouldians visit this site"gouldian finches breeding"

Hope this will you understand why they are expensive
