Welcome to the Waxbill Finch Society's website
We were formed in 1991 with the following aims:
- To encourage the breeding of Estrildid Finches (Waxbills, Munias, etc.)
- To share information about proven breeding and feeding methods
- To help members locate, exchange, purchase or sell stock
- To build up stocks of captive-bred birds
- To assist members to contact one another at Branch Meetings or by telephone
This website is therefore designed both to promote the society and to help it achieve these aims. We also hope it will encourage potential members to develop an interest in these marvellous birds.
