Finch Update 27-10-2013

In a medium sized cage with nesting box:

  • The pair of fawn Zebra Finches have constructed a nest and laid two eggs.
In the aviary:
  • The pair of Gouldian Finches are happy and enjoying the warmer weather;
  • The pair of Painted Finches are happy fossicking around in the sand on the floor;
  • The pair of normal/grey Zebra Finches have constructed an elaborate nest in a dead clump of grass in a pot plant and laid 6+ eggs.
In the medium sized “holding” cage:
  • Two male charcoal Zebra Finches are keeping each other company.  One was in the aviary but his partner died last week.  I had thought it was the male that had died… hence the two males…
