Bicheno Finches their care and Breeding: by A.J. Mobbs (Author)
Bicheno Finches their care and Breeding: by A.J. Mobbs (Author) (9780958710220)
One of the main problems experienced by potential breeders of this small finch is the difficulty in sexing by visual means.  The author describes an almost infallible method of sexing, which will no doubt prove helpful to those who, in the past, have given up any attempt to breed the Bicheno because of their inability to identify correctly true pairs.

The World of the Zebra Finches: by Cyril Rogers (Author)
The World of the Zebra Finches: by Cyril Rogers (Author) (9781852590123)

Zebra finches have been bred in captivity for many years and as a result, many different mutations have appeared. This is a detailed study of these fascinating cage and aviary birds. Recommended to all who wish to study the various colors available. The color plates bring together all the possible colors at the present time.  

This book covers the development of Zebra Finches from their first introduction into domesticity to the present day.  It traces the introduction of each mutation and mentions the personalities involved.  The management of these fascinating birds is also covered.  In addition, possibly for the first time, all the main mutations are shown in full color from paintings by Miss Frances Fry.
