Our Zebra Finch eggs hatched.

Hi there people, hope somebody out there has experience with breeding zebra finches? Our pair of zebra finches laid eggs about 2 1/2 weeks ago and the eggs started hatching today. Is there anything we should do extra?? Or just keep the parents on a good diet and let them take care of the babys. This is the first time.
Thanks for any help.

sorry to hear this,perhaps yours are a young pair and inexperienced ?
mine did that with a clutch,and a couple they actually threw out the nest,
search the internet for a finch forum,someone will be able to offer a suggestion
i would hope.

I know nothing of baby birds but normally the parents feed their babies in a special way depending on the species. Eg some will eat and regurgitate the food and feed the babies. Robins collect bugs and worms and basically shove it down their throats.... Do you know or did you see the parents feeding the babies? you would have only fed the parents correct? Was there a special food that baby finches should get? Have you been able to find anything on the internet?
I know this is extreemly upsetting but you do infact have a breeding pair and they will re-produce again. Often fish Mommies eat their babies. So do Hamsters... just takes some time to get experience and comfortable with it all. You are also going to learn from this tragic experience.
Hang in there... try to keep reading. Is there a "bird person" or expert at the Local pet store who may have experience or try calling a bird breeder in your area. You can maybe find them on Kijiji for your area... they would be listing baby birds for sale. Worth a try.

with zebra finches they are very finicky you can,t touch the chicks at all just have to make sure they have lots of food and water with first time parents it is normal for the chicks not to make it
