My Finch Laid an Egg?I have two pairs of finches in my cage and they are doing good. One day I met with a surprise and there's an egg in one of my finches' nest. The next day there was only one egg and the next day an egg was there. But today there's no egg. I need to know whether this is the last egg or there's still a chance of getting more eggs.

Baby Zebra Finch Leg Problem?Hi, My baby finch is 6 weeks old but is yet starting to change its beak color but was (maybe) beaten up by its father. Yesterday his 1 leg seemed to stop working and today other leg as well. I massaged his 1 leg a bit but I am worried. What should I do? The leg doesn't feel broken just unfunctional. Should I keep it separated or along with mother. Please advise as it is impossible to contact or see any vet.

One Of My Female Finches Is Male?About a year ago, my LPS sold me two zebra finches. As you can tell by the title, they sold me two zebra finches claiming they were females. I believed them, because I have had a male Finch before. These two "girls" looked like girls. I just didn't want a breeding pair.

Baby Zebra Finches Dying?I started raising Zebra finches two years ago. They are very prolific and everything has been fine until now. I have over 200 birds. The cages all started at about 3x3 feetand 6 foot tall. I've connected four of them. I would have a baby death once about every other month. Now all of a sudden I'm having two or three deaths every day.
