I have 2 male and 2 female zebra finches. I have eggs constantly and my males sit on them but they never hatch. Also my males chase and fight with my females if they get close to nest. What should I do? Thank You Any answers will help.

    two pairs zebra finches should never be housed together. they will constantly fight.

    The Zebra Finch is one of the easiest to breed. However they can sometimes develop bad habits, and a young pair will behave strangely. In the wild they pick their own mates, but in captivity that is rare, and sometimes a poor pair bond results. If they seem incompatible, separate them and then get new mates to try them with. To be successful they also need to have a comfortable environment; a cage that is large enough and located in an area that is quiet and away from disturbances.

Hi I have a 2 year old I was told that it was a male. How can you tell if it's a male or female?

    The only 100% way to determine if it is a male or female is through DNA sexing.  You can purchase the DNA sexing kits in the back of the Bird Talk magazine in the classifieds.  A breeder would be able to tell you with about 75% accuracy whether it is a male or female by the shape of the head.  The males head is flatter and the females head is a smooth curve from the eyes up and over the top of the head to the neck.  The males head just looks flatter from the side.  Other than that, if it ever lays an egg - it is a female.

    My canary is not just an acclaimed champ, but an ALARM clock that wakes the entire family up @ exactly 6.30am daily.

We have a pair of gold cap conures that have laid one egg this week. Last year the proven sexed female (the other we think is male) laid three eggs but they broke. Now while she is nesting on this egg she frequently chirps for long periods of time. Is this normal? Is this a sign she is sick? Should I be worried?

My military macaw bobbs his head like a chicken on our hands/arms etc., does anyone know what this means? He's not hurting anyone when he does this but just very curious when and why he does this..

    Yep it is normal.  They bob their head up and down.  They sorta bump you with their beak which doesn't hurt and even bump you in the head with theirs.  They are playing and it is fun.

    That's natural, it's a feeding thing they do when you hand feed them!

Thank you so much! This has really helped me in a tremendous way!


I have a pearl who laid an egg today, her first in 3 years!
I noticed that she was ignoring the egg and so my son and I decided that maybe we could incubate the egg by using odds and ends around the house. So well see what happens in about 22 days!

Thanks again for the help!

What a very intersting article on Parrot Finches. We have about 25 in our garden aviary and they are breeding well. We hope to sell some pairs this coming season. They are delightful little birds and are first up in the morning and the last to go to roost at night.
Our aviary is quite large and houses about 80 birds. So the Parrot Finches spend their days with conures, turquiosines, elegants, bourkes, and doves etc.
