My MIL had a zebra Finch that was a mutation. He was white, beige and brown. We have had him almost a year because my MIL got sick and could no longer care for him. After 7 years he passed away.
he also had bumble foot but that never stopped him from singing or doing his daily activities. I still have 4 finches 3 males and 1 female. The male and female are in a separate cage.

Sorry for your loss, but 7 years is a long time, they normally only go 3-4 years so you did well. We had a pair and the female died in a problem laying an egg, and the male died a few days later for no apparent reason other than missing his mate.
