Finch Bird

Finches are one of the more popular pet birds.

Exotic Zebra Finches, Poephila guttata, are small birds (averaging 9cm) and are native to the the Australian grasslands.

Another major attraction of the zebra finch is the soft chirping sound it makes. Many individuals find the sweet sound of the zebra finch to be soothing and pleasant, in stark contrast to many other varieties of loud squawking birds. The male is also generally the more vocal of the sexes.

Zebra finches are extremely social birds; however, only social with other birds. Typically, zebra finches are shy around people and do not like to be petted or held.

The Zebra Finch's primary food is seed. Millet is the principal seed in any finch formula. Properly balanced seed formulas are readily available at pet shops. Zebra finches love millet sprays. Zebra finches also need a diet supplemented with certain greens, vegetables and fruits.

Finches eat high seed diet that is high in fat and not as nutritious as other diets. They are harder to increase protein levels than some other species. A vitamin supplement in the water is recommended. The brand name Vivi 13 doesn't change the taste. having plenty of food available at all times is crucial as well.
