I started with a normal cock and a white hen and they have bred 5 birds since february and have now started building again with 2 eggs at the minute. These birds are easily bred and great to watch. Also nice to see alot of them snuggled up on a perch together and preening each other.

I started with two and I now have eight! It was great fun to watch their courting and nest building, egg production and fledgling antics. I have developed a greater appreciation of all birds, thanks to my zebra finch friends!

I bought a pair of zebra finches about 6 months ago. I enjoyed their cute littlness, their abnoxious song, I absolutly love em. They have hatched four babies and i have had to buy another cage. They love to play, they jump on their swing and swing and swing then jump over to ther house and play what it seems like hide and seek with each other. Granted they are not very good people birds they are like fish they are fun to watch.
