I received 3 finches for my birthday. Within about three weeks, they had laid four eggs. Okay, I thought, they aren't all going to hatch...
Guess what. They all did.
So now I had 7 finches. My cage was beginning to look awfully small, so we were gifted with a much bigger one from a friend of my father's. There was a catch, though; we had to adopt a new finch, this time a Zebra Finch.
So now I had 8.
They recently hatched another egg, I believe about four days ago.
So now I have 9.
Lovin' every minute of these wonderful pet birds.

I have 2 set of Zebra and one set of Society finch. I have a very large cage and they are well taken care of..however, the past two weeks, I have found a broken egg a week. I am not sure if these are unfertile eggs being disregarded or if the birds are being agressive towards eggs being laid. Any suggestions?

To Badernourman - I know that World of Birds can help you bring the Strawberry Finches in the country.
A few years ago, I got a pair of Goldbreast from Paul & Mandy in Alabama called Singingwings.com.
Call this number 303 -433-4329. They also have a location in Colorado.
Great people but could no longer find strawberrys,
My gorgeous 8 year okd died today and my heart is sadden.
She was so sweet and listened to me talk to her, she also had a tiny song, like her male who sang his little heart out.
Please do what you can to bring my favorite bird back.

    I don't think that encouraging the catching of wild birds is appropriate, lisa.
    Birds that were common very recently are becoming endangered due to uncontrolled trapping for the cagebird trade.
    I think you should try to find a reputable supplier with captive-bred birds and if that is impossible you may have to try a different species.
    There are other beautiful small birds with charming personalities that are not threatened by lack of control from authorities.

I have 5 zebra finches. They all used to fight but we separated them for a while and put them back together and they are perfectly fine. They get along so well they are like best of friends. They always share their house which is like a little nest, and I always have to remember to change the water and food everyday. I clean the cage once a week. They like having a bath so water should be available at all times, but I don't know how old they are.

We got our zebra finch from some guy and his wife. There used to be four. Neither of them knew how to properly care for the poor birds. Not only did they keep them in a freezing cold garage, they fed them the wrong food. My brother told the guy to bring them in from the garage, but he didn't listen and instead brought a gas heater into the garage. Three of the birds died. My brother gladly and readily took the last bird out of the idiot's "care," and now it's ours.

However, my mom and dad bought another finch (an orange-cheeked waxbill) and now they're in the same cage. I've been watching them for a while and they seem to be trying to get along with each other. Hopefully they'll fall asleep together and get along very well. When the waxbill perches all the way at the very top of the cage, the zebra finch seems to be looking for it.

I took eight finches from a friend that was no longer able to care for them and although she was sad to see them go, she was happy that they would be going to a good home. I now have four adults and four adolecents, and they are so much fun to watch as they go about their daily routine. I am really appreciative of all the good tips that I am getting from everyone. Two of them are now showing signs of nesting behaviors, so this will be something to watch as they go through the process.

Good Morning,
I hope i am not out of line here. I am new to this site. My son was recently given a pair of finches.They have bonded well nested and have 6 eggs due to hatch any day now. I was wondering if some one could tell me what chances might be that they are related the female is brown with specked chest and the male is brown with white chest and head. I was unprepared for this so soon after getting them. the nest was already in the cage when given. I am hoping the previous owner would have told us if they were and why the nest if they are not a breeding pair? can any one help me here?

I bought two pairs of Zebra Finches the other week. Some nights they were quite loud and noisy, I thought they were just talking to each other. But this morning my brother came and woke me up to let me know one male finch was belly up and the other male finch was on his way out. We are thinking they were fighting and killed each other. Hmm. Very sad. So anyway to replace them we are going to go get a male and another female. Their names are Holly, Kendra, Bridget and Hef :)

We live just outside of Milwaukee. This beautiful bird has been in our neighborhood for several weeks, very aggressively chasing other birds away from feeders. He must be a pet who got away. Now his long tail has disappeared, making him harder to spot. I'm afraid that if he isn't caught, he'll never make it through a Wisconsin winter.
