    Zebra & Society Finch Compatible Companions?

    Hello Everyone, I am new here, and I was guided here by @Atomiklan to seek out some advice regarding his society finch, Atticus, and my zebra finch, Boo. I have a fair amount of experience with birds, having raised a couple of wild birds and also rehabbing several abused/neglected parakeets. A...

    Sleepy burb

    So Charlie did the funniest thing a few days ago. I got home one night and my heat had some sort of an error and it was a little chilly downstairs. Went to check on the finches and Charlie was shivering :( as he is not allowed to snuggle up with Emma right now. So I decided to get him out of...

    Pictures Interesting nest situation

    So I went ahead and let Charlie & Emma nest. I am not going to re-explain or justify my reasons. You can read about them in my last post here: Charlie & Emma | Avian Avenue Parrot Forum Things have developed into a rather strange situation and I'm curious if anyone has experienced this before or...

    Charlie & Emma

    Hey all, need some opinions. C&E have been in a nesty mood for the last month or so. Its probably been a good year since I took their nest away from their last nesting season. Usually they are content without a nest, at least Emma is. She ignores Charlie's advances and life goes on like normal...

    Finchy Xperiment

    So earlier tonight as I was cleaning up the kitchen I heard some unusual commotion emanating from the finchy household. Usually Charlie and Emma settle down for the night on the weekends (relative to my schedule) around the time I start wrapping up downstairs. They have a pretty regular...

    Funny mashup

    Had a really funny dream last night. Dreamt I had to take Charlie (Society Finch) to the vet. Nothing was particularly wrong with him. In fact I remember thinking to myself, ugh... this vet is not doing anything useful and its gonna cost me a fortune. That's not the funny part... In fact, that...

    Behavioural direction

    Let me pose a hypothetical question. Lets say you take two brand new, non tame society finches and allow them to breed. You then 100% hand raise the babies to the point that they are the complete opposite of the parents (100% tame). Lets say you then reintroduce all the birds together again and...

    Red Bull Air Race...

    Charlie and Emma are so funny sometimes when they get really active and fly around the kitchen. I've started to notice a pattern in some of their flights. They have a tendency to come out the cage and do a loop around my head. They seem to try to get as close as possible too when looping. It's...

    Pictures Charlie & Emma are at it again!

    So Emma has picked out a favorite spot on a branch near the corner of their cage and seems to have decided this will be their new nesting site. I'm not saying it's an impossible spot, but it is quite funny watching Charlie try and try and try to make this spot work (well get it started at...

    Interesting observations

    So to those of you who followed my post from a few weeks ago about handling the finches daily, I ended up abandoning it completely. It started to become a "chase" with Charlie and was really stressing him out. We almost had an accident too so I put a stop to it. Its been a week or so now and I...

    Handling conditioning

    Ok so I know I have asked this before in some sense. Lately Emma and Charlie (mainly Charlie) have been quite scared of me. I have had to catch them a few times for various reasons including a nail trim recently, but I actually attribute this behavior more to less daily hands on interaction. At...

    Divorce! Well... separation...

    So I am sad to announce that Charlie and Emma have been separated for the time being. I noticed that Emma was spending an unusual amount of time out of the nest. Usually they trade off pretty regularly. I decided to watch them closely and it turns out Charlie was being very aggressive towards...

    Second clutch

    So Charlie & Emma are on their second clutch (at least since arriving home with me) and interestingly enough, Emma decided to only lay 6 eggs this time. I know you may be asking, "I thought you weren't going to let them lay eggs this time?" Originally yes, that was the plan, but then I thought...

    Pictures Casa De Finch

    So I finally got around to building a new home for the chicken nuggets. Their original home was purchased at the store and it worked, but I wasn't happy with how I had it mounted in the cage, or the poor job I did lighting it. Whenever I needed to remove the coconut, it was always an ordeal and...
