    I'm getting a Pair of Zebra Finches..I do plan on breeding them but I'm wondering if my cage is an OK size.....It's 24 inches tall, 15 inches wide and about a foot deep......Is that ok?

    I think it could be done but I wouldn't advise it. The cage is a tad bit small if you would like to breed them.

    A standard breeding size for a pair of zebras is 24" long x 18" high x 18" deep so I would also consider your cage too small.

    In addition finches need length, a general flag on a cage is one that is higher than it is long.
