More baby CCFW’s

I was cleaning up the cages today and found that a pair of our finches had a surprise for me.  I was ready to toss the eggs because I didn’t think they were fertile, but I was surprised by finding these two baby Continental Chestnut Flanked Whites.  They are about 4 or 5 days old now.  This is the first day their Mom has let us look in the nest.

This is the first time these two birds have bred together.  We were a little concerned about the male:  he is missing one foot and we were concerned that he might not be able to breed properly.  Needless to say, he has proved this point….
