|Ken has always been
interested in birds, and when we came back from our holiday
in Australia, we had an opportunity to acquire some zebra
finches. We had a total of 12 birds We originally had
4 birds. Two males and two females. One female
is almost normally coloured, but is split to white; the
other female is mostly white with a little bit of grey
on her. The two males are also mostly white with a little bit of grey
on them. We have since learned that the whites are most likely to
be pied whites. The 8 babies seem to be split fairly evenly
(approximately half look regular
and half show pied white). One of the latest youngsters
is mostly regular but has a white belly (only under the
body where it's tough to see) and white wings. Please
check the photos page for a pic of this bird. I have created a
for updates under the news section.
We recently sold most of the birds and got some black cheeks. Not alot
to report lately. A few baby birds, but only zebra finches so far.
I've added a few new photos of the birds to our pic page. We also have
a couple of budgies now. Just can't stay away from the Aussies I guess!
