    My sweet little black cheek hatched out two of her 5 or 6 eggs today. I hope some More hatch in the next few days. Most of all this is her first nest of babies. I hope she cares for them!
    The daddy is not helping at all I don't understand why he raised a baby all by himself last summer when his mate pasted. I will fill better in a few days when they start yelling for food from mom. Until then I just check and hope

    Congrats!!! Baby finches are so cute and tiny!! I've had bronzewing finches but only have on left now. She happily lives with 2 diamond doves and even sat on dove eggs with them. Unfortunately none of the dove eggs have been fertile. I haven't a clue as to how old my male is??

    Oooooh, I love the cordon blues [​IMG] but have never had any. Mostly b/c the bird show that use to come here stopped 2 yrs ago [​IMG] I missed all the road trip ones last year but determined to hit some this year!!!

    cool! I have a Pied Red Headed Parrot Finch paired with a non-pied that just laid a clutch of eggs this week. I am hoping they hatch and raise the babies. The male is young and inexperienced. Wish me luck!

    Good girl! I wish parrot finches weren't so touchy, or I'd post pics of the babies when they hatch. They are TINY, about the size of a pea.
