I love them! I have a soft spot for certain pied zebras, but these are beautiful.

They're gorgeous, congrats! Mine never successfully bred, I just had zebra finches coming out of here, there and everywhere

I hear a lot of people call them owl finches, but I have always known them as Bicheno finches

Maybe that's a U.S. versus Europe thing? I've never heard bicheno finch.
