    I saw an ad on Craigslist - a lady was downsizing on birds and I bought these adorable little Zebra Finches! They are so pretty and I love to hear them chattering. It has been 26 years since I last had finches (man am I getting old! Dang!) I forgot what a delight they are. I just keep sitting there watching and enjoying them. Why did I wait so long to get them again?!

    Does anyone know the correct name of their coloring? The ones I had before were normal coloring, these have a lot of white. They are soooo pretty!!

    Awww...Very cute! I love my finches. Mine sleep together in a nest at night. I'm not sure about their color.

    You have pied Zebra finches, I believe I see 3 males and the rest females! Good luck with them, at one point I had over 30 of them! I only have 3 birds now, a Cockatiel, a Green Cheek Conure and a Alexandrine Parrot

    I was going to say the same thing [​IMG] 3 boys and the rest girls.

    They're gorgeous. I miss my finches. I had two, Priss and Tess. Loved their "beeping" they'd do at you [​IMG]
