They're great I'm feeding them a breeding diet so that I won't have to be surprised, it has these ingredients: Hardboiled egg (with shell), raw pistachio kernels, Pasta, bean sprouts, lettuce, and a tablespoon of seed and a tablespoon of pellets... This is enough for Sparta and the finches and a bit extra they love it, also, my friends have some beautiful finches, one is a female with male markings (I was confused too, but they had it sex checked it sure enough, it was a female) They said that I can take as many as I like (for free) So when Issa and Zebby's first clutch are in breeding condition, I'll pair them up with one of my friends'
Thanks for asking
Sounds good here is a picture of one of my female charcoal zebra finches there brown pigmentation is turned into black pigmentation .
