    Widowed Finch and Advice for the Future

    Hello friends, We said goodbye this morning to our dear Spice finch hen, Nutmeg. Her mate, Cinnamon, has been calling out today and it breaks my heart. They were purchased together, and I've had them about six years. I'm worried about buying just one more finch for him, and having him leave us...

    Finches vs. Canaries

    Hello everyone. Currently, I'm choosing between some finches or canaries. I've heard good things about both, but I was wondering what you guys thought. I'd prefer a bird that was on the larger side and it would be great if they were known for getting along with other birds. Also, I'd love to...

    Should I continue using this?

    Because my birds have finished their seed mix, I decided to buy a new seed/pellet mix. My dad limited me to 10$ or less on the price and all the other seed mixes contained mostly just millet sadly, so I decided to go with this: All Living Things® Seed & Pellet Medley Finch & Canary Diet | bird...

    A reminder why it's important to properly maintain outdoor bird feeders (medical images within)

    This is a case from a local wildlife rehabilitator... Here's a resource with more details about the condition, and a recommendation for what you should do if you see a bird with conjunctivitis... We encourage people to take down their feeders for at least a few days to encourage sick birds...

    Pushy male zebra finch siblings

    Hi, I currently own 2 male zebra finch siblings in an apartment, they're both a little over 1 year old. They were handfed and are social with humans, and seemed bonded to each other when i got them at 2 months old. They would always cuddle together and preen each other. Mambo is the more pushy...

    There is something sticking out of my finch’s cloaca!

    Today morning I noticed that he had a little bump on his cloaca that was visibly disturbing him. I didn’t think anything of it because I thought it was poo stuck to his feathers. Some time later when he was sleeping, I saw that something long pinkish-white was sticking out of it. It got longer...

    Sprained finch leg Help needed!!!

    Hello. Saturday evening I noticed my zebra finch had hurt her leg. It’s been hard for her to fly and stand on her perch. Today I took her to the vet and there was no fractures in the x ray. I was given pain killers and antibiotics. They told me she sprained her leg. They did not put a splint...

    Two New Friends

    Hello All! It's good to be with you. My new companions are a pair of female Cut-throat Finches. Fortunately, I discovered a large local bird store in Florida, and they were very helpful when the birds picked me! These are the smallest birds I've had the pleasure of knowing.

    I captured the perfect moment

    Hello everyone, I just took a picture of a European Goldfinch and a little ant looking right at each other! I guess the finch ate the ant afterwards though :laugh:. But I think it turned out to be a cute photo and thought I'd share it here!
