Pet Zebra Finches for Sale

Pet Zebra Finches For Sale

The pet Zebra Finch (Taeniopygia guttata [formerly Poephila guttata], is hardy and relatively easy to care for, so they are an excellent choice for the new owner. This darling little Finch has amazed finch enthusiasts for decades. Originating in Australia, this wonderful bird has become the most common household finch in the United States.  

Each male pet Zebra Finches song is different, although birds of the same bloodline will exhibit similarities, and all finches will overlay their own uniqueness onto a common rhythmic framework. Sons of pet zebra finches generally learn the song of their fathers with little variation. Songs may change during puberty, but afterwards they are locked in for the life of the pet bird. Scientific research at Japan's RIKEN institute has suggested that singing to female zebra finches is an emotionally rewarding experience for male pet zebra finches.

Because male pet Zebra Finches learn their songs from their surroundings, they are often used as avian model organisms to investigate the neural bases of learning, memory, and sensorimotor integration. The zebra finch genome was the second bird genome to be sequenced, in 2008, after that of the chicken. The popularity of pet Zebra Finches as model organisms is also related to their prolific breeding, an adaptation to their usually dry environment. This ability also makes the pet Zebra Finch popular as pet songbirds.
