    Mine are breeding like rats!
    I stopped counting at 11.
    I Finally got smart and separated the boys from girls. Duh.
    I don't have the heart to cull them. Cute little buggars.

    I have the two cages separated on either side of the bedroom. It's too funny... some times they "beep" to each other across the room. It's like listening to a tennis match! LOL:p[​IMG]

    The males have a little song they sing in the morning. I guess equivialnt to Crowing for a rooster...anyway, it sounds like a miniature army guy playing Revalie.

    I laugh every day when I get up around 0430. When I turn on the light they get squacking: BEEP, BEEP BEEP BEEP!....(short pause)...Beep! (one guy is a little "Slow" i guess).

    I know they are saying "Hey! Butthead! Cut out that light!"[​IMG]

    Awwwww.... I miss my Zebra finches. I had some for several years, and love the noises they made.

    I want zebra finches. I have 8 cockateils, and 4 parakeets. Hubby said I can get some in a couple months. I can't wait.

    We are having the same problem. The little sex maniacs. I have had a great success with the craigeslist in our area. Just sold five in 24 hours. Good luck!![​IMG]

    We started with 8 and had 30+ within a few months. They just dont stop! I love the beeping sound they make though!

    These guys sound adorable, but I'm not allowed to have any more indoor pets [​IMG]

    But do you think they'd hatch in an incubator? Maybe I could sneak them in as REALLY small banties that need special care?
