Marvin

I thought I'd show you some pictures of the hand tame zebra finch youngster I have and am keeping it's super cute and super cuddly. We don't know yet whether it's male or female and it will take a while for it to fully mature. I'll know sooner or later though 'cause the orange cheeks should come through















he's so cute

hehe thanks guys finches are hard to tame but he's great!

my boyfriend came up with the name haha. He couldn't remember out of my friends which was Melvyn and which was Martin so he ended up calling them both Marvin, then he said he'd call his son Marvin and I said thar kid would hate him so he named the poor zebbie Marvin Rollins

I did indeed. He was very pushed aside from his 4 siblings, they wouldn't let him near them and they wouldn't let him nest with them at night it was really sad but every time I came in the aviary he'd fly over to me, so I decided to keep using that and now he's the cutest, snuggliest little thing on the planet haha!
