They are: yellow molted, brown molted, and white. Within these colors are a variation in the shade, distribution and intensity of these colors which vary greatly. While males and females look very similar, only the males sing which becomes prominent during breeding season.

Like most pets, the Society Finch will thrive when provided with adequate care. They are also excellent breeders and easiest of the Finches to keep. While Society Finches make great pets, are colourful, active and surprisingly vocal, they are not “hands-on” pets as they are too small, fast and nervous to be handled. They are perfect pet if you enjoy watching birds and listening to vast array of interesting sounds.

You should also know that society finches are very social as well and will gather and interfere with one another’s nesting. Pairs should be separated for breeding for the exception at all other times, this highly social bird should be kept in groups.

One Finch or Two? Just as most species, your Finch will do best when accompanied by a friend. In addition it will also be more fun for your to have two finches as you can watch their interactions with each other, not to mention that they will also live longer and lead more fulfilling lives themselves.

Finch Supplies: It’s vital that you give your bird as much space as possible to fly, so house them in the largest cage you can afford. When considering bird cages, keep in mind that horizontal space is more important than vertical space as it provides more room to fly. As a suggestion, the minimum size to consider would be a cage about twenty inches (fifty-one centimers) long. As for cage construction wrought iron or powder-coated steel are the most durable and longest lasting. Lastly, consider bar-spacing when purchasing a bird cage so that your Finch cannot get his head out, or he may become stuck or escape.

If you have space for an aviary, which is essentially a room-sized cage that houses several pairs of finches or other bird species, keep in mind that it should offer a double door entry which makes it more difficult for the finches to escape. If you have plans to build an outdoor aviary, ensure that it offers protection from the elements and from predators such as cats and hawks.

Whether an aviary or a cage, your Finches will require a number of perches – epically to help him or her exercise. Perches can be made from many materials such as concrete perches or natural wood perches. Use newspaper or plain paper towels for the bottom of your cage. Do not use corncob or gravel as these can be dangerous for your birds digestive system.

Some finches love to splash about in a birdbath while other’s would prefer to simply be sprayed down every once in a while. As a result, be sure to add a shallow dish with water and clean it out regularly. Keep a spray bottle handy and set its nozzle to mist/spray mode.

You’ve taken some time to think about it and you’ve decided that you want a bird as a pet? Good choice! Here at Petware House, we have many birds to choose from. Before making a final decision its best to visit our showroom to see how all the birds interact and behave.

Take your time to think about which bird is right for you, are you thinking of a Society Finch, budgie or cockatoos? Don’t hesitate to research your bird of choice, here on website and learn more about our birds. Once you have considered it, there are questions to ask that will lead you to making th right decision. Of course, we are always here to be of assistance, so don’t hesitate to contact us or visit our show room.

Once you have understood all the particulars for the chosen bird – which can vary greatly between species, you will need to consider how serious a commitment they may be. For example, some species of Parrots live longer than humans. If you do choose to purchase a pet that can outlive a human, then you have to think about and make arrangements after you pass away. Also, some birds can become attached to humans which means that any changes can be very stressful for them, where as other species have shorter life-spans and are less likely to have to deal with this.

As with any pet, there is always a cost associated with ownership. The cost of vet bills, food and accessories can all add up. Obviously, the costs will vary between pets, but there will always be a cost involved. If this is a factor, you can always consider having a bird pet which falls comfortably into your budget.

With some birds, comes the potential for noise. You will have to take this into consideration if you live in an apartment or condominium. Ask property managements if there are any noise restrictions as birds can be quite noisy at times and finding out just how loud the are can help you narrow down your options.

Some birds require a high-level of maintenance and a lot of time spent with them, such as parrots. As a result, think about how much time you will have available. Some breeds require increased levels of interaction whilst some will be quite happy in a group with the right food, water and bedding.

To help you determine the best bird pet for you, ask yourself, how much interaction do you want? Do you just want to watch them or listen to them, if so, then this can determine the kind of bird for you, such as a canary. Of course, Parrots can learn to talk so there are different levels of interaction from both yourself and your pet bird.

There is no question that birds make for an amazing pet, but you have to take the welfare into consideration as well as the implications it will have on you as an individual or as a family because once you bring them into your home, they become a family member.

• Finches are well known for being as vocal as other kept birds, but their tiny voices do not carry as far as larger birds, like parrots. As a result many people choose this bird if they live in condominiums or apartments. The soft, pleasant chirps of a small finch are quite soothing, so some people choose to spend much of their time in the same room with their birds as possible.

• We’ve domesticated a number of small birds that are common pets, but the Finch is the smallest of them. Most finches measure less than four inches in length from the beak to the end of tail feather with a weight of less than an ounce.

• A Finch can be easily frightened and stressed if handled. As a result, it is generally recommend that if you keep a Finch pet, to handle it as little as possible. Your Finch will become accustomed to observing you as a house mate, the majority of them will never get comfortable to perch on your finger or handled in any way. Keep handling to what is necessary just for the bird’s health and medical attention.

• The Finch, just as with another bird species require socialization in order for it to thrive in your home. They also prefer socialization from other finches instead of that of a human companion. We suggest keeping them in pairs or a small flocks instead of being kept alone. Birds who are kept alone with no means of companionship can become unhealthy and mentally and emotionally unstable.

While the society finch is an interesting we have domesticated it for such a long period of time, it no longer exists in the wild. It is perhaps the domesticated version of the white-backed munia which evolved from a Chinese subspecies of the finch that was imported from Japan several hundred years ago. Through selective breeding of this species, we have created mutations that have made the extremely popular birds.

Like a re-run of the move Mars Attacks the parakeet is no stranger to the Ack-Ack-Ack and is form of Parakeet talk. Your parakeet is simply expressing his or her excited and happy nature.
