Aya has a boyfriend

As I told you all, my little Marvin has gone to a nice new home. She was housed with her sister Aya, who was my first white zebra finch chick. She sure is pretty! Well we needed a male to go with Aya and we didn't know anybody with a single zebra finch they could spare. Luckily, we found a guy last week who bought him to us last night. He's a normal grey, very handsome and everything but the only problem is he is like half the size of Aya! My zebra finches are all exhibition birds, so they're a good deal bigger. He is really puny though haha. I've decided to call him Bob, being as it was Bob Marley's birthday yesterday I'll upload pictures soon!

Here's some terrible pictures of Bob taken on my iPod, with the lighting in there it makes my pictures look terrible. UV bulbs are like really really bright





he has the biggest zebra finch beak I ever did see, especially being as he's so tiny

No no no no not at all! Just recently I've been sitting and watching them while usually I don't really watch them often. But the male (Sweeps) will come up to the bars and tilt his head and you, do a MEEEEP and bounce away and the female is much more reserved. She just kinda hides away in a corner, and has a go at him if he's bothering her a little bit. Aya likes to forage on the ground a lot! And I'm not sure about Bob yet
