when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have

Sweet, Sweet, Sweet. I love Finches... they sound like little squeaky toys. Congratulations. Thanks for the pics.

I have question, does anybody know of a good way to prevent the adults from breeding again? They have already started again, and the baby's aren't even Weened yet. But the male is still feeding the baby's very well, what should we do??? HELP!!

We talked to the LPS and they suggested switch the eggs with fake eggs before the adults start incubating. And over time with the eggs not hatching they will get bord and leave the nest! Sure hope this works, we really want to give the Chloe(the female) a break!! Today I went out and spent $500 on 2 new cages, one for the adults and one for the little ones, man bird cages aren't cheap. My wife has me, I spent over $800 on my new aquariums!! So She kind of had me,LOL!!! P.S. They where stuck in a kind of rabbit cage before, they look alot more happy now .

Anyboby out there close to winnipeg? The parents laided more eggs, and my wife would'nt let me get rid of them! So now we have 6 more eggs to deal with! If anybody is in the area PM if you want some new finches. I've been doing some research on these little guys and they are little breeding machines, it can be very hard to stop them!!.......
