Hi finch friends!

This is Becca — I posted several months ago about my work as an ornithology technician in the New Hampshire forests.

I also keep a small (but growing) colony of zebra finches in a spare room in my apartment.  I can’t wait to post someday to share with you my trials and tribulations as a new finch owner but longtime bird lover, though for now I post with a different purpose!

I have embarked on the journey of breeding these little birds from time to time, both for my own personal enjoyment and to encourage pair bonding to stabilize my once-squabbling colony.

Given my space limitations, however, I sometimes find myself with several babies in need of good homes.  Chelsea has kindly allowed me to advertise my available birds here.  She has been a truly invaluable mentor in helping me foster these fat little friends!

Right now, I am looking for homes for three CFW sisters and a CFW/Fawn male.  Their parents, named Bean and Pancake, are personal favorites of mine for their especially fluffy demeanor and bold personalities.

The fledgies are still young (less than 2 months old) and seem to delight in rolling around in feces, but they are sweet and perky — and just starting to squeak tiny “beeps” of their own.

Here are a couple of fledgie photos:

While they were still very young.

Please let me know if you are interested in current or future babies!  I am located in Alabama, but I should be able to ship for a fair price.  I will adopt these little ones out FREE OF CHARGE to a loving home.  Contact me via email.

Thank you, and happy finch keeping!

-Becca

    What part of alabama are you in? I would be interested in adopting 3 or 4 finches. I have 3 now and I have quite a large aviary. I could easily house 15 or so.

      I’m in Auburn! I’d love to adopt to you if you’d like any CFW ladies or a wild-type male (probably fawn, waiting till he finishes molting into big-boy plumage before confirming his brownness).
