young gouldian split to blue

Post by goldfinchowl » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:19 pm

If you've seen my other threads, I got 1 adult male a week ago.
He was cheep cheeping almost constantly (still is)

So I thought he needed companion of his own kind.

After a very difficult search for a companion for him
I finally found some 2 month old gouldian. Since they were young I got 3 males, split to blue.

He hasn't cared that I got them and he still is cheep cheeping, even more now since he had quieted a bit.
What helps him most is soft soothing lullaby music.

I was trying to find info online about gouldians and read that blue gouldian babies die a lot more and are more sensitive to weather.
What can I do to help them live and stay healthy and make it through the winter?

Anything else I can do for the adult male that keeps cheeping all the time? Wilk the young gouldian learn from him to do the same?

The breeder I got him from said he was separate with his canaries. But I thought I saw other gouldian in one picture.
The breeder only had him available since the others were in breeding.
I wonder if this adult male gouldian was a problem breeder and got removed from his mate.
Or he just isn't settling in easily and feels stressed. The society had been giving him a hard time when he was alone. Maybe things will settle down once they all settle in.

I'm definitely not adding any more to try to solve the problem.

The babies are adorable and very active and curious.
