Help Breeding Zebra Finches

I had to take my male zebra finch out of the cage while the female was laying eggs, because she was fighting with him. Now the babies are hatching and I want to know if I should put him in again.

It may be that the female is still young and isn't into the nest/egg frame of mind yet. I would remove the ivy from the cage as it may be poisonous to them.

When I had my zebras, I went to this site a lot for advice. They were very nice and very helpful.

Make sure you have plenty of room. Your cage is going to get crowded.

Trade some young birds to promote genetic variety.

A calcium source and lots of good food should help divert his attention. Don't rush the reintroduction. She has her own agenda until she notices that he is really cute and then it will start all over again.
