  2. Hi Chris,

    I don't have zebra finches my self but found this information http://zebrafinchsociety.co.uk/index2.php?option=com_content&do_pdf=1&id=37

    It says that the hen will be swaying from side to side and fanning her tail.

    Hope the link is useful.
    Kind regards

  6. Hi Chris,
    So sorry to hear about your zebra finch female. It would seem that small birds often get egg bound. Some of my quail have been egg bound before, so I know how you feel. Kind regards
