    Beeper the tame finch

    This is my handraised tame finch Beeper. He was from my last clutch and was tossed at 7 days old. Handfeeding him is one of the greatest experiences of my life. He is the sweetest finch ever and follows me all over the house. He loves to cuddle under my chin and preen my hair. He gets very exited when he hears the water running because he knows he is about to be fed. And he sits on my arm as I am preparing his food which makes it pretty hard. He hates other finches and thinks he is a person. I put his brother in his cage and he nipped at him and chased him around. lol I didn't post about him before because I didn't know if he was going to make it or not. He was very weak when I found him and started handraising him. I can tell he is a male because he has faint stripes on his chest.
    Here he is where he would like to be all the time He aims straight for my hand as soon as I let him out of his cage and poofs up and looks very contented. This is just after a feeding so he is a little messy (you can tell he is well fed look at that crop)


    He loves being scritched behind the ear and will tilt his head to the side and close his eyes in bliss.


    Most of all he loves being scritched under his little chin he tilts his head up and usually falls asleep.


    Well thats my special baby Beeper's story hope you enjoyed it.

    Aww!

    He is SOOOO cute! I love little tiny birds, there is something so innocent and sweet about them, and when they can be as trusting as that to a big scary human, it is something so special.

    Hehe, Ive never seen something like this before. They all are so afraid and flying around in the store cages. Cute little-one.
