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.
hey im from scotland. i have just bought 1 pair of zebra finches, they are great. i got a nest and everything and i noticed the male starting to build the nest. i was so excited. he seems to build it most, in fact i haven't saw her build 1 part of it, lol. their names are brooke and cade after my niece and nephew. any way ill get back to you if i see any eggs, i hope i get some.
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 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!
my mom has two of these sweet little birds, that she takes outside and hangs in a tree every day. The birds love it and other birds have even come to visit them. One day when she brought them in at the end of the day we noticed that the male bird was missing! We were very upset and looked every where for him, not expecting to find him. The next morning while sitting on the deck we hear the little bird calling for his mate, and sure enough there he was sitting in a tree looking very sad. She brought his cage outside and he flew over to it and she carried them back in the house! We never did find out how he got out, or where he spent the night! We all wish that little LB, "little bird", could talk!
i have 8 pairs of zebra finches and more eggs on the way. i love each and every one of them as i have 1 CFW, 1 WHITE, many PIEDS, and many NORMALS. i have a large aviary and at least 15 nest boxes. i have around 5 eggs from my current 3 clutches
my zebra finches just hatched a few eggs! i am very excited! im new with having birds and i love it!
I have 2 pairs of finches. All 4 are zebra finches. We just got another pair today. The pair that we got are babys so its going to take a while until they can breed. I can't wait till night to see if they start fighting. Their names are George, Kiara (1st pair) and Jack, Linda (2nd pair). Every time I wake up I always here George singing. When we got George I could tell he was scared. Kiara was also scared. When we put them in the cage they both started to fly around. They are so cute.
I have 2 finches, and they are the best birds ever
Just two weeks ago I have adopted a one year old male zebra finch from my work. He was up for adoption because he was born with only one foot, however he walks and perches as well as any other finch. He is sweet and loves to chirp to me in the morning. I have been cautious on whether to keep him single for life or to find him a mate. I am afraid that because of his handicap, he would not do well. But I know that no matter how much attention and care I give, I can not replace the company of another finch for him.
