    I hatch out lots of them, they are the very same in hatching-they are long legged little things! I hatch my coturnix and africans together.

    I just ordered some on Wednesday night off of ebay, from the vendor in Louisiana who has the zebrafinch.com website. I got some button eggs from him last year. I didn't have a very good hatch rate, because A) it was my first time and I didn't know what I was doing, and B) when they came it was unGodly hot, like 96 degrees for 3-4 days in a row. But, the colors that did hatch were really a nice mix.

    Looking forward to these eggs. The auction was for 14, and he said to expect maybe 50%, so really I would be happy with 4 or 5 at this point, just to see what they are like. I guess the disposition is much calmer than a button, much more like a corturnix.
