    Surprises - nice and not so nice

    i am so please to read this as i had a pair of their chicks out of the nest so i put the remaining 3 eggs under a pair of silverbills which have been sitting on their own infertile eggs and 2 have hatched today so that gives me some hope that they might survive steve

    expanding outlook

    hi they are lovely bird that you bought,just a couple of things though the owl finches closely related to the zebs and could mate giving you hybrids (if they are put in your aviary together, plus they need heat which i found out after mine died steve
