Ok so I have a pair of zebra finches. First clutch was 5 eggs they sat until they hatched .. Then abandoned the nest . Second clutch 3 eggs. Hatched and took good care of the babies this time Babies (3) have all been out of nest for at least 2 weeks... I think parents are trying to wean them now . How long do i give them before i take the babies out. Going to sell any that are boys and keep the girls in a separate cage to prevent inbreeding At what age do the adult feathers come in One has small patches of red coming in under his wings like his dad so im sure it is a male. Ive seen the babies drinking on their own and at least one eating on his own . But that baby chases his parents around begging them to feed it . They ignore him and fly away . (Why i think they are weaning. ) when can i separate them? Do i wait a week or 2 more ? Or are they good now .
