Post: no babies wanted
Posted by Pat on 9/05/06
We thought it was a good idea to get a male Zebra Finch for
the songs and a female for company. She has been dropping
eggs all summer. We were told if we didn't want baby birds
to simply not provide nesting materials so we haven't. I
have noticed the male plucking her feathers and playing with
them. Now I realize he may be trying to make a nest using
her feathers. She now has most of her tail feathers missing
and some off of her underside. What should we do? Provide
a nest or nesting materials so he will stop plucking at her
and remove the eggs? Maybe we should have gotten 2 females.
