Zebra Finches

Zebra finches breed readily, and are a good beginner’s bird, easy to care for and requiring a minimal time commitment. Because they are generally kept in pairs, zebra finches will not need you to keep them company — merely play the radio while you are out, and talk to them when you are in — other than that they will be fine on their own.
