    Paired male finches, one injured the other, had to seperate.

    A Zebra Finch Male and a smaller Zebra Finch White Male, the larger common Zebra injured the smaller white Zebra to the point of bleeding. Thankfully I was there and stopped the bleeding then separated them. This occured due to the larger finch chasing the other, which has been a daily occurance...

    change in zebra finch song?

    Not sure if this belongs here or on the Emergency Highway, but given my bird seems well, here seems most appropriate. I've had Zeebo for roughly 10 days now, and have been spending a significant amount of time with him given that right after his adoption, my partner returned home to visit his...

    Advice for newbie picking 2 finches

    Hi! I am planning to get 2 zebra finches, which I’m very excited about. I am totally new to birds, but I learned zebras are good for beginners. I am not interested in breeding them at all & I read that same-sex pairs can bond and do very well together- but is it cruel? If yes, does not providing...

    Bioactive birdcage?

    Hi, Sorry if this is not in the right category, I’m very new to this forum! I currently have two zebra finches. I’ve kept many different species of parrots and passerines but have settled down and am pretty happy with my two little finches. For a long time I’ve felt that they need an upgrade...

    Im not sure if i should post this here but been raising this finch alone as the other babies unfortunately got thrown out of the nest and didn’t survive, while he was still in the egg I decided it was best to take him in before he hatches and gets thrown too. He is pretty much fully imprinted...

    Lone zebra finch

    I had two zebra finches but one got into a room he wasn't supposed to be in and flew into a mirror. Unfortunately he did not survive and I am left with a single boy. He is 4 years old and I am unable to find a new friend due to the avian flu causing a shortage in my area. It's been a month and a...
