3 Fawn Male Zebra Finches Available Now

by Marie

My Finch journey started out when I adopted my first pair of young Zebra Finches from Chelsea @ TWFA. I chose two unrelated Fawn OB BB birds so they would go on to breed later.

My birds were really active, singing and happy when I brought them home. The little hen’s beak turned orange just like Chelsea said it would. The little male tickled me with all the crowing he did and the little hen chimed right in. He has a cute little song.

They seemed to really enjoy the new cage. The little hen does lap flights every day. They are so cute. I have their cage next to my desk in my office while I do some rearranging to get the configuration I want. They sit on the branch closest to the desk and talk to me. I have named them Abraham and Sarah since they are my first Zebras.

After a few weeks Abraham had his crow perfected and liked to sing to me as I told him what a beautiful song he has. That’s usually when Sarah came over to share her song too. Soon they were already kissy and amorous. They were also trying to build a nest. I put some of the clean nesting material Chelsea sent with them, Timothy hay, clean soft hair from my dog (he was shedding like crazy) and nesting hair from some dispensers I bought.

Soon after that I had the greatest news. I was talking on the phone and looking at my finches when a beautiful fawn baby hopped out of the nest onto a branch. Later the same day a second was out. The next morning the final baby was out. Sarah and Abraham now have 3 beautiful healthy fawn babies. They were about half the size as the adults and are now getting bigger than them.

They have been well taken care of by their parents. It was so funny at night because Abraham would herd them back to the nest to roost. All while they were raising their young I was watching them close and they remained in good shape too. I have really been enjoying these little birds so much. I could spend hours watching them.

I still am so excited I am beside myself after watching these new lives develop. They are all happy birds. They come to this side of the cage and talk to me all the time. They are so sweet. and beautiful. Fat, healthy and they have been eating on their own for some time now. The little males are busy trying to sing and develop their songs. I just love these little guys.

I want to let everyone see what a great job Chelsea does in her breeding program. These guys are so active and cute. I am also currently looking for a home for them and entertaining any offers for their adoption. I would like a rehoming fee of $30 per male but am open to negotiate. I am located near Tacoma, Wa. and able to meet locally for pickup. Click here to contact me via email.

    Hi Chelsea,

    This is the most beautiful article. Thank you so much for creating it. You are such a wonderful friend.

    Thank you for the flowers you sent to the hospital. Every time I looked at them I smiled. They were so beautiful. Thank you for being so generous.

    I am finally home from the hospital. Praise God! My time there went from 3-5 days to 10. The surgery went well but they had to go back in and put a stint between the kidney and liver. The Doctor said I had the most unusual anatomy he had ever seen. The tumor was on the lower lobe of the kidney, but the kidney had already crated a new vein to the liver and tissue to compensate for the tumor. He said that when he removed the tumor I still had 2 whole kidneys. Praise God for another miracle. The tumor was cancerous but he got it all. Pathology report looks great. Now I just have to rest and heal. No travel for now and can’t lift more than 10 pounds for the next 60 days. I go in Friday for my post-op check up.

    Thank you for your prayers and friendship. They mean so much to me.

    I am going to sign off for now and get my babies fed. I will talk to you again soon.

    Love and friendship always, Marie

    • Hey Marie! I am very glad to hear it & of course your are most welcome! 🙂 I did call to check up on you and make sure that everything had gone okay so I sort of spoiled the happy surprise but I am also elated that things went even better than anticipated/hoped for. I would expect nothing less but wonderful karma for such a wonderful person & friend!

      I’m looking forward to hearing from you again soon, and if I don’t hear from you by next Thursday then I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂 Wishing you a quick & full recovery.~

      Your Friend,
      Chelsea
