Society Finches make a perfect pet for beginners. They are inexpensive have an ideal temperament, and are very easy to take care of. Remember water and fresh food must be provided for these robust birds daily. Millets and canary seed will be provided by a good finch seed mix, available in any pet store. Society Finches should also be provided with green foods, on a regular basis. I would suggest some spinach and chickweed. Egg foods, apples or pears can also supplement their daily food. If you would like to treat your bird you can give them some seeds with honey, fruits or vegetables.
Essential for your Society Finches diet is grit with charcoal to aid in digestion, it contains trace elements, and valuable minerals. It should be provided in special cups or sprinkled over the cage floor. I would also suggest a cuttlebone because the calcium will aid a firm beak, and also hard eggshells when they breed. Cuttlebone also prevents egg binding in females. The lime in the bone helps the birds digestion. Society Finches with a good diet lot’s of exercise are most likely never ill. They are very hardy birds.
An occasional bath will be very much appreciated from your society finches. Simply provide a dish in the bottom of the cage about 1 inch deep only fill it half way. Another option is to clip a bath house on the side of the cage. Do not forget to trim the nails, you should be careful never to clip into the vein if you do your bird can easily bleed to death. Buy some steptic powder with your bird nail trimmers available in any pet shop.
I hope this Article brought some clarity how to look after your Society Finches. Enjoy your friends they are lovely companions. provide lot’s of fun and entertainment, when looked after correctly.
