    Hallo, German Finch Lovers!
    I'm sorry I can't write in Deutsch, but I , begging Your pardon, need Your advice.
    Some Years ago I bought two pairs of Timor sparrows (Lonchura fuscata) from our friend Marco Baumgartner. They actually are three cocks and one hen ! I was able to breed them easily, anyway. Unfortunately , I was so sure these were easy birds, I parted from all the offsprings. The following year I had clear eggs only. I soon realized I was left with three sterile cocks and one good hen. So, I tried crossing the lone hen with a Java cock.
    I had many clear eggs, and, happily, two hybrid hatchlings, which I hand raised. They are two cocks and are now singing a lot. So, this is my question: do You think they could be sterile? If no, which is the best next option? That is : to back-cross them with their mother or give them a Java hen?
    P.S. I couldn't find any actual Timor breeder in Europe (except one in France who has hundreds but don't sell one of his birds !)

    Dear Roberto,

    hey, roberto....

    look in your private news for a new adress.......
    Unfortunately it is difficult to breed Timor sparrow. And a hybrid is - competent according to breeders - infertile .
    Over the breeder in Luxembourg Mr. Weyrich : the entire breeding 2007 was stolen completly 8( .

    AND : Timor needs much space to fly - otherwise they will be agressively .

    NO CAGE !!!!!!

    Thank You very much for the link and advices. I know Weyrich (or, better, his site!) from some years, and was shocked to hear what happened to his birds. Today I am going to put nests in my aviaries and cages, so, in a few weeks , I will know if Timor-Java hybrids are fertile ! Unfertile eggs is a big and widespread problem with Timors. I suspect this species has a different breeding behaviour from Javas . (Maybe javas are so easy breeders as they are domesticated from some centuries, while timors are still "wild" birds). I am not at all interested in making hybrids , but as i am left with one only timor hen, I am trying all what I can.
    I will update the forum with my results.....

    Hello Roberto,

    I think, the hybrids are fertile, because the parents are very closely related - mostly the male offspring is fertile...
    If you cross back the offspring, you never get back the "pure" Timor again - therefore it doesn´t make any sense to cross the young male with his mother.

    I wish you a good luck - it´s difficult to find Timor sparrows, but sometimes...
