I have raised dozens of them over the last couple of years. You can read more about them on Garrie Landry's site at www.zebrafinch.com. I'm one of only a few breeders that have raised them in the US, but they are more readily available now that Garrie is selling fallow eggs on ebay occasionally.

They are very pretty, especially the cinnamon varieties, although the normals are nice too. I hope to produce some silver and ivory fallows this year. I have had them in normal, cinnamon, blue faced, red breasted, and combinations of the above.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend them for beginners, but for an experienced breeder looking for something new to work with, they are very very interesting.

The stock we have to work with is much stronger than it has been in the past, but it is still a work in progress, and it will take disciplined breeders to keep it moving forward.

I have really enjoyed working with this mutation. Any other questions, I'll be happy to answer them.
