Zebra finch

Post by Rob » Tue Mar 20, 2018 1:17 pm

Hi everyone,

Last night I picked up a lavender finch which also came with a zebra finch. I've never had a zebra, and never really wanted zebras, but now that I have one I'd like to know what I have (and I'll probably find a mate for it). The picture isn't the best, but it's all I have at the moment. From the research I've done, my best guess is a dominant silver, but really I'm no expert. I'm curious what your thoughts are.

Thanks

Fraza I've been looking for a female lavendar for quite some time now, not wanted to pay store pricing for one. I got a good deal on this one though :) Hopefully I'll have luck with breeding.

It might be hard to tell in the picture, but I thought she had tear drop eyes.

I think she is a female Florida silver.
