I have 1 pair of these cute little birds. they are so cute and i love the sound that they make. I have a huge cage for them and they are happy and they are always playing with each other. when i come up to the cage to feed them or to put in a new toy they start talking to me! it is so cute. The boy is named Brown Sugar and the girl is Cinnamon. Right now they have about 5 or 6 eggs. It was kind of funny the first time they laid eggs, they didn't really know what to do. I gave them the nest for finches but they wouldn't go in. i tried so many different types of birds nests and finally found one that they like (a canary nest!). i am happy now because before the eggs would fall down at the bottom of the cage. i can't wait until the babies come! :]

I bought several strawberry finches years ago. they are great pets with great personality, especially in the morning hours just before the sun rises. The males sings a great song for over an hour until it's mate decides it's enough that morning. Great color of reds when the mating season is here, however they are hard to find these days and several have aged and I need new ones. they have bred at times, very hard being caged but can be done. Wondering where can i get some more strawberry's, they are just a favorite bird to have around and watch them grow. I'm in New Jersey,,and have look all over the state and other states for them...can't find them.

I have a large aviary with 30 mixed types but only 2 pairs of zebra. Before I knew it, it increased by 4 babies acting like they own my aviary. My problem is no one is paying this one paticular male any attention. Oh well, so there is an odd-ball even among birds.

We discovered a male Pin-Tailed Whydah at our local petstore. He looked very unhappy in a cage full of Zebra Finches, so we took him home with us. He was an expensive little guy and we enjoy him very much. We are hoping to find a female for him.

Zebras are a great household pet. Take good care of them, feed'em daily, give them a comfy room, keep'em warm during the winter months, and they will live a long life - even 12 or 15 years in exceptional cases. (My oldest is a male gray, 13 years old this December--outliving his mate, and all his children, the little dude is a virtual methuselah).

I have 24 birds, and most of them are finches. this was just the perfect site for me. This website really helps me in training my birds, feeding, and breeding my birds. I'm probably going to visit this website often. I just love it!

Right now I'm looking out my window and watching 12-15 Nutmeg Mannikins feed from my feeder. They've been here the last three years and are breeding. Each year there are more and more. There are several juveniles that are just starting to turn the darker color on top and get their striped feathers underneath. They're adorable little birds. They arrive in a large flock to feed in the mornig and again in the afternoon and early evening. I live in Fullerton, California.

I just purchased a perfectly matched pair of zebra finches, and I must say that they are adorable and I enjoy hearing the sounds they make. they are very busy building a nest so babies will be coming. I love to hear the male sing, he sounds like he has a toy trumpet he's tooting on. I named them Jack and Jill. I'm hooked!

This is our third male in two years (the other two passed away for reasons unknown) and first time mating; we bought another female too and she and the new male are busy nesting and laying eggs (two in two days). Their song makes the effort of caring for them worthwhile. Our 9 year old daughter does a lot of the care and naming; the new birds should keep her busy at that.

Mealworms are a staple in their diet aside from seed mix and millet. I just found out they ALSO eat blades of grass as they have refused to touch ANY vegetables/leaves/celery/carrot top or anything else green in their cage. They love grit (some sources including one vet said NOT to give this to them - most sources say DO).
