Identifying the Baby Dilute Male Gouldian
The youngest sister, Jessie,
cares for our Gouldian aviary. She is fascinated by the eggs, by the
babies, by the pairs of adults and is very meticulous about their care.
Here is her observation of how to tell which baby is a dilute at a very
young age. The below picture is a clutch of Gouldians in the pin feather
stage. There are 2 yellow backs, 2 normal green backs and one dilute.
The below 2 pictures show a normal green backed Gouldian Finch and a Dilute Gouldian Finch for comparison.
Here is an adult dilute male Gouldian Finch for you to see. The male is in the back of a yellow backed Gouldian hen.
