Forgive me for the double post here.
So today we went and bought a new pair of zebra finch males, so that our remaining finch (Fiji) wouldn't be lonely. Although I feared all sorts of problems with the transition, things went well. My bird starting eating again, they all bathed in turn, and there's no fighting or aggressive/submissive behavior (at least not yet.)
What was fun (and surprising) is that the store had white zebra finches. (They're actually what I'd consider white ticked; they're not absent of pigment as entirely as a real white finch is.) This makes for an interesting trio in the cage.
Anyway, I now introduce to you the new trio of finchlings, as photographed from left to right: Tiki (named after our beloved one that just passed,) Fiji, and Noni. Finches are incredibly hard to get a picture of in a small cage.
