SJD Javas - My Java Diary July 07 onwards
www.javasparrow.co.uk, 6 Oct 2008 [cached]
Thanks to Java expert, and JSSUK chairman, Tony Gladwin for explaining the reasoning for the different tail feather colouring as mentioned in the two java's pictured above.
Tony has informed me that the Java's with the lighter tails (I think that's what he said) will turn out to be either Creams or Euro "Brown" fawns. The father of these birds is a Tony Gladwin bred "Brown" fawn paired to a Phil Thompson fawn hen. Later this week I'll check the ring number with Tony to see if this bird is from Cream bloodlines.

Below is a record of a visit some time ago to a name that is inextricably linked with the Java sparrow in the UK and beyond, Tony Gladwin.This page will briefly cover Tony's birdkeeping history.I visited the renowned Java specialist Tony in September 2001.

We first met Tony at a Stafford sale day where I bought 2 pairs of Javas from him and for me it was good to meet the man whose articles in Cage & Aviary newspaper were eagerly awaited by me because I shared the love of the Java Sparrow with Tony but I did not have no where near the same level of knowledge about the bird.
I was keen to get as much from our meeting as possible to improve my Java knowledge.Tony got to see my website and asked me to put some of his spare birds on my for sale page.He saw that I was asking for a Fawn cock bird, he said he had some spare soon.To cut a long story short the result was the visit detailed on this page.Tony also arranged for us to go to his friends birdroom too, that of his showing Java partner Paul Heard.
Tony was very open with the things he told myself a friend Jim, who came too.This was really refreshing for me because we all hear some of the top bird / show men in our hobby as being secretive with how they do things and what they feed their birds etc.
I asked Tony to give me a brief history of his birdkeeping exploits & he has done just that, so please read on below and enjoy.If you go to the gallery page you will see Tony's setup & how he goes about keeping his birds.

Here on the right we can see Tony outside his breeding birdroom which is the far shed if you refer back to the first image above.
Just behind Tony you can see one of his other loves, his dogs, Spaniels in particular.

Pictured left is the main part of Tony's breeding birdroom.Tony uses this birdroom for breeding because he says it is easier for him to control the temperature and keep it at a constant level.
Again the cage arrangement enables Tony the luxury of making the cages longer out of breeding season.Tony feeds his birds white millet & canary seed mixed in a pot and provides panicum in another seed pot for his birds.He uses Sluis softfood & gives all his birds millet sprays and soaked seeds when breeding.His water does not contain anything in it at all.
...
Nesting materials used by Tony for his Java's are coconut fibre and shredded paper.b

I was also lucky to be invited to Tony's Java showing partner and good friend of some years Paul Heard.Paul has a more varied collection of birds than Tony but they are of similar quality and the birdroom was impressive not only for the use of UPVC to make the cages and nest boxes but also how Paul has utilised every inch of the birdroom to the maximum.Paul is rethinking the plastic nest boxes though because of the fact that he runs his birdroom at about 70 degrees C the young being raised in the nest boxes are sweating a lot, even though the boxes have got ventilation holes in them.
Paul's birds include Java Sparrows (he has had a good season breeding these this year) Gouldians, Cherry Finches, Self Bengalese of different colours, I can't remember all the birds Paul has but I can recall seeing Cutthroat finches too!
Below are some photos of Paul's birdroom, you can see what I mean about the excellent way Paul has used his space well, a lesson to us all who moan about no having enough cages etc.
