Raising Baby Zebra Finches

My zebra finch has laid eggs. When they hatch will all of the birds be able to live in the same cage as their parents when they are mature?

The mother will lay about eight eggs, which will hatch in about two weeks.

Be sure to count the amount of eggs laid and without disturbing the nest too much or at all.

If after three weeks has passed and the eggs have not hatched, they are not ever going to hatch and must be removed quickly as the mother will lay more eggs, and then it will be hard to tell which ones are going to hatch and which ones are not going to hatch.

It is necessary to separate the pair between egg layings in order to rest before breeding again.

After 21 days the baby birds will leave the nest to the cage and start to eat on their own.

After 6 weeks they will develop their adult coloration and feathers.

Separate the little finches from their parents after 6 weeks.

They should be moved to a separate cage at this time.

Talk to your local bird store about selling or trading them for seed and supplies.
