Requirements of Questions: -CHECK MY WEBSITE WWW.FINCHFAQS.WEBS.COM BEFORE ANSWERS BEFORE ASKING ME -Must use proper grammar (typos I can understand but if you won't make an effort to type properly don't expect me to make an effort to answer your question) -Must include finch species if known and if bird is domestic or not (if you don't say, I will assume it's domestic) -Be as descriptive as possible -No asking about how your bird died If the above requirements are not met, I will dismiss your question (especially the dead bird one). I have no issue donating my time but will not waste it either. I have owned various species of Finches for over thirteen years now and have done everything from hand-feed babies to nurse sick adults back to health. I am most knowledgeable on how to treat Air Sac Mites, feather mites, finch breeding, and finch first aid.
I own finches, have read handbooks on how to care for them,and have researched the internet dry on finches.

I would try getting him a girlfriend. Start by putting their cages beside each other so they can get used to each other without being able to fight. After a month or so start to introduce them slowly (preferably
This is actually normal behavior for Society Finches. All Society finches will stuff themselves into one nest. If you're worried about babies getting squished, put some dud eggs in the nest as well, this
I would wait until she is fully recovered before introducing a new male. She sounds pretty traumatized. Putting her into a recovery cage was a very good idea. If you haven't done so already, move her
