Baby zebra finches


One baby came out and perched for a few minutes how many days should I give to them to get comfortable with there environment out of the nest should I give them once they have all come out I don’t want to take it away to soon but at the same like u said uts best to give mum and dad rest who don’t seem to be wanting the nest back just yet anyway thank you


Answer:

Hi Penny,

Once they are all out, take the nest out. Otherwise they will keep going back into it. The parents will be weaning them and once eating on their own, you move them to another cage and watch them to make sure they are all eating well.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
