    Hi, I am an accidental breeder of a pair of regular zebra finches. 2 of their eggs were fertile however 1 chick died after only about 4 weeks. He/sh was always very tiny and seemed to be doomed from the start. The other chick hatched and was strong and hearty. Except she was all white except for orange beak, orange legs and the little “tear trails” vertical from eyes. I keep watching for her feathers to darken but they don’t. Whoops I take that back. Her tail has very faint grey bars across the feathers. This is it so far only 3 birds. Any help with telling me what type this little white bird is???

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Sincerely, Beryl

    • Hi, Beryl! In the future, I check my email more regularly than this site if you need a more prompt answer.

      A bit of advice: If you do not wish to breed your birds, simply remove all eggs from the nest as they are laid. This is a natural solution, and will not harm your birds.

      If you do choose to breed them, then that is totally acceptable! There are so few Finches of fine quality in the states now compared to the past due to the current inability to import them, so the more breeders of -quality- stock, the better, in my opinion. Just be sure to do your research! I have a good bit of info on this site, so check it out!

      As to what your little bird is, she sounds like a perfectly healthy baby Chestnut-Flanked White Zebra Finch! That is a color mutation that I obviously love, and is perfectly normal. It is the result of selective breeding of Zebras, so it is not impossible that it came from your two Zebras, it is just rare. Less so if you have a couple of Pied Zebras.

      I am sorry to hear the other little one was lost.

      Enjoy your new bird! Let me know if you have any more questions or need anything else.

      Warm wishes,

    I enjoyed your response to my last comment. Unfortunately I am now unable to breed Zebras due to illness & age. (mostly illness!). I have passed on my zebras to another breeder and since these guys have been breeding like bunnies hopefully she will continue to raise great finches!! Thanks, Lacebay ie lyladear.
