Leonard and Pearl knew each other at the pet store. Their bond grew stronger when they came to live with us. They groomed each other. They slept nestled each night in their grit cup. Then Pearl died.
Leonard was alone. Since finches are not loners, I obtained a new roommate for Leonard. You always worry a little. Not all roommate situations work out well.
Happily, this one has. Indeed, these two may turn out to be more than roommates. Hudson layed an egg. Leonard has been seen, er, mounting Hudson. Can a Spice Finch and a Society Finch produce a brood? Spociety Finches, perhaps?
