My 3 zebra finche pairs are laying eggs but not incubating them. 2 of them are laying eggs inside the nest box without making nests, however nesting material is provided to them... while the 3rd pair took their time to do the proper nesting and then the female laid 4 eggs then they stopped entering in the nest and started sitting over the nest rather than inside of it...

    My pure white finch pair is doing the same. The female laid 3 eggs and began to incubate them but stopped incubating after a week. The pair sits outside the nest. Tell me the reason if you find out.

I have two finches, one is all white, with a very light tan pattern on the tail, and dark tear lines on it's face. The other is spotted dark tan and white, with no tear lines. I have not had them very long, no eggs. How can I tell if they are male or female? Neither one has orange cheeks.

    If neither one has orange cheeks, than your Zebra Finches are both female.  Zebra Finches are very easy to sex - males have orange cheeks and the females don't. See the descriptions of the male and female above... under the 'description' section.

We have two zebra finches and they have laid 1-2 eggs but we don't know which is the female. They both fight over the nest. They are both white chested but one has a black strip across the chest going from left to right. Could someone please tell me which is which.

    Both of our finches have orange beaks. They can't both be females if one just laid eggs.
  • Clarice Brough - 2014-01-16
    Both sexes have orange beaks, but males usually have brighter beaks. When sexing them, look for differences in is the feather color of the cheeks. Males have orange cheek patches and females have no cheek patches.
  • Aj Tyne - 2014-01-22
    Even if they are both females they can still lay eggs -- the eggs will not be fertilized and will not hatch. So perhaps you have two females. If they are fighting over the nest, it might help (I'm not sure) to provide a second nest so each one has a nest to sit on.

    As the others said, both male and female will have orange beaks. The male will also have orange cheek patches on the sides of his face -- these may be bright orange or pale orange but females will not have them.
  • Aj Tyne - 2014-01-22
    They can both be females and still lay eggs. The eggs will not be fertilized and will not hatch into baby birds, but the females will each still lay the eggs. If they are fighting over the nest, it may help to give them each a nest so they can each tend to their own eggs. The males and the females have orange beaks. But the males only have orange patches or spots on the sides of their faces. In some males the orange may be paler and in others very bright, but only males will have the spots on the sides of the face.

I am hand feeding 4 Zebra Finch babies and it looks like their crop is on their back, they are feathered, but after feeding they look hunch backed. Is this okay??

    That sounds very odd. The bird's crop, its food storage sack, is on the side of its neck.

The Story of my Little Peg:
I work at an animal hospital and one day a pet store brought in a little female Zebra Finch with an infected leg band. They had waited too long and the leg was dying and required amputation. The pet store did not want to pay and asked the vet to euthanize her. The vet refused and stated that the finch could live with 1 leg. The pet store said that they could not sell a one legged bird so keep her and do whatever you want with her. I took her home and named her "Peg". A few months later I was buying food for her at a different pet store and was asked what kind of bird I had. I told them and they asked me to adopt another Zebra Finch whose wing was defective and had difficulty flying. I said yes and brought him home. He and Peg were so cute together and they hopped everywhere they went so, I name them Peg and Jimmy Hopper. They now have 2 chicks who are 3 weeks old and Peg and Jimmy are totally in love. Peg has a good life now with a new husband and two little ones that are perfectly healthy.

Started with 4 zebra finches about a year ago. They were given to me by an old woman who could not care for them properly. One died within a week. I kept the cage clean and give fresh water, seed, millet spray, hard boiled mashed egg, fresh spinach every day. I add whatever I have on hand like broccoli, apple, zucchini. I put nests and material in the cage. I now have 18-24 finches! Because they are messy to keep inside we acclimated them and moved them onto our covered deck They have a 3x6 cage 24 wide and we are building another cage! It will be 8 foot tall and 8x10 wide and long. We love them and don't want to give or sell any of them but how many will I be able to keep in the new cage?

    They can be rather quarrelsome so it's hard to predict how many birds will get along with each other. They are best kept as a single pair in a small cage. Two pairs in a cage can cause a problem, as can odd numbers of 3-5 per enclosure.

    Several pairs can be kept in a very large enclosure but they will pluck each other if they are overcrowded. As a general rule, 3-4 square feet of floor space is required per pair of finches. If plucking starts to occure, some will need to be removed.
