Well, my two finches have been sitting on their one little egg very diligently over the past couple weeks and it finally hatched today! It is very teeny (about an inch long), has little patches of strands of feathers (looks like eyelash yarn) on its head, wings, and tail. Daphne has been sitting on him/her (we're calling it Baby until I can find out the gender) all morning and Herbert has been a very doting father.

Here are the proud parents:

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Baby!


Excuse the yuckiness. Their "nest" is really just a feed dish. I had strips of an old dish towel in there but they threw it out and filled it with chunks of their cage liner...can't be too comfy for Baby, though. :-/
