    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?

    I am looking for a breeder for a variety of finches, and there are none in my state (Massachusetts). I have come across a breeder online that has all of the birds I’m looking for, called Lee’s exotic birds, and I’m wondering if any of you guys have purchased from him and/or know if it’s legit...

    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?

    Mixed finch aviary

    I am new to finches, I’m getting my first (zebra finches) in a week. I am thinking of buying a second a very large flight cage, and starting a mixed finch cage. I am wondering if any of you know if Gouldians, star finches, and society finches would do well together. Thanks!

    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...
