Common finch diseases

Spotting a sick finch is most of the times an easy task, especially if you know sign to look for. Most sick finches will become very docile and not move at all, they will stay clear of other birds and their activities and almost lost total interest in their surroundings. Food intake will drop and the bird unless treated may not fully recover.

If you are deciding to breed your finches it recommended you get well prepared before you start. If your birds are already in the nest and laying eggs then hopefully this page will assist you in making sure you have what you need and also be prepared for any unforeseen circumstances.The below are guidelines only and I do ask that you also  research the breeding habits of your finch species.


Save the Gouldian Fund

Recent estimates suggest that less than 2500 Gouldian finches (Erythrura gouldiae) remain in the wild. Although once common throughout northern tropical Australia (Northern Savannas), recent declines now mean that the Gouldian finch is pretty much extinct in Queensland and restricted to small and isolated populations in the Northern Territory and Kimberley regions of Western Australia.

Save The Gouldian Fund was established in 2005 to promote awareness and fund valuable research into the decline of the Gouldian finch

Finch Compatibility

Certain species of finches are known to be territorial, aggressive and prolific breeders. these problems can be managed and possibly avoided if you understand on finch compatibility. We have touched previously on Mixed Aviaries (Mixed Collection) under the breeding section as well as Colony aviaries. But for this topic we will need to dive into it one more time.

See what finches work well together and which ones definately don't.

I have often wondered if my selection of seed mix is actually the right choice. Somehow I get the feeling there are cheaper less, wasteful options.
After a few interviews the results are in!
