    Society Finch Nest Behavior

    I am the owner of 2 diamond doves and 2 society finches. I recently crocheted a nest liner for the nest in their cage, wanting to make it more cozy for them and expecting them to enjoy it. They are very put off by the liner I made for them and don’t want to get in the nest when I put it in...

    Bioactive birdcage?

    Hi, Sorry if this is not in the right category, I’m very new to this forum! I currently have two zebra finches. I’ve kept many different species of parrots and passerines but have settled down and am pretty happy with my two little finches. For a long time I’ve felt that they need an upgrade...

    Should I cover my finches?

    Hey Everyone! When I first got Will and Arlo I didn’t cover their cage at night because my friend with budgies said they can get night terrors if you cover them the first night. So I decided to wait till they were settled in. I have had them for a while now, (over a month I believe) and I still...

    Can you keep 4 female zebra finches together?

    I know that you are supposed to have two or 6+ finches, not 4, when you have male-female pairs, but what about all female? Could you keep 4 females together?

    Where to get finches

    Hello! I am new to finch owning, and I am thinking of getting a mixed finch aviary in the future. Where I live (Massachusetts) there are only Zebra and Society finches available easily, and the only way to get the more uncommon finches I want is through shipping. What are your guys thoughts on that?

    How should convince my parents to bring my birds to the vet?

    Today, when I was hand-feeding my female zebra finch Flower, I looked at her feet and saw something I did not expect. Her feet were covered in white stuff (probably scaly mites) and the part of her feet between the three-toe section and the hallux was pink. So I am thinking that they have...
