The Penguin Zebra Finch








© 1977 Poule d'eau Publishing

The Penguin has been a favorite of mine since the very beginning of my keeping of Zebra Finches! It has been around for a long time, but it has never been commonly available, and seems to lurk in flocks of zebras in small numbers. Penguins have dark upper body color, the feathers of the wings and back are edged with silvery-white . Upper breast and underparts bright white (no breast bar on males is the goal!). The cheeks and flanking are bright orange. Females are striking with white cheeks and bright white breast and underparts. It is recessive mutation. I have produced Penguins in a variety of colors even Black Breasted Penguins which have no breast bar but exceptionally large cheek patches. These are rare and beautiful. I'm working on producing Black Cheek Penguins currently. Below are some of the varieties of Penguins that I am currently keeping:
