The zebra finch is the most common estrildid finch of Central Australia and ranges over most of the continent, avoiding only the cool moist south and some areas of the tropical far north. It can also be found natively on Timor island. The bird has been introduced to Puerto Rico and Portugal.
These little finches are transferred to stores on a daily basis and due to the fast turnonver of these pets, it is difficult to provide the exact date of birth.
The babies are mostly in between 2-4 months of Age.
The baby birds can look very different from their parents. Even the brightest songbirds often have drab, dull offsprings, and many baby birds have spotted or streaked plumage as camouflage protect them from predators until they learn to fly and be more independent.
The babies do not show exact color when they are young and being a baby it is difficult to determine the gender. The color and gender is not guaranteed.
These birds live in flocks and roam in the wild togther. It is recommended to keep them in a minimum of pair as the baby birds get stressed out easily and do not make in the new environment easily.

UVB enables birds to produce vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin,” which is essential for calcium metabolism and immune function. UVC is normally filtered out by the earth's ozone layer and does not exist on the planet naturally.
UVB plays a very important role. It allows your bird to synthesise Vitamin D3 in their skin or through a special process involving the preening gland. Parrots need Vitamin D3 to metabolise calcium which they use to produce eggs, build and maintain strong bones and maintain normal growth.
Keeping your bird under right amount of UVB needs some consultation with a Certified Professional.
Despite other benefits from UVB, it helps processing the calcuim in captivity and help improving the birds vision.
