Zebra Finches

Zebra Finches originate from Australia and a few of the more eastern Indonesian islands. Domesticated forms include several colour variations as well as crested and yellow-billed varieties.

They are delightful little birds, very easy to care for and will even breed in small groups. They can be housed in aviaries and will readily breed in typical breeding cages. In temperate regions they can be housed in outside aviaries providing there is adequate shelter and protection from freezing weather conditions.

Feeding is simple, consisting of a basic millet / canary seed mix including a few other seeds for variety. Haith's Foreign Finch Mix is ideal for the purpose but fresh chopped-up greenfood should also be offered particularly when breeding.

Parents and young can all benefit from a supplementary diet of Haith's Rearing and Condition Food, Egg Biscuit Food or Nectarblend and Prosecto Insectivorous Mix throughout the breeding season.

The typical clutch size is 4-6 eggs.

Haith's Millet Sprays are also a very important addition to the diet as they also provide a welcome opportunity for the birds to forage. Millet Sprays are also very beneficial when soaked and can be used as a rearing food.

Like all seed-eaters, Zebra Finches require a Fine Oystershell Grit and Small Cuttlefish bone, and Granulated Charcoal can also aid in the digestive process.
