• 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.
A healthy parakeet diet includes commercially balanced diets, such as Lafeber Premium Daily Diet Pellets, as well as other food, fresh vegetables and some seed. A well-cared-for cockatiel can live for more than fifteen years.
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.
