Ask A Question


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.

Experience in the area

I own finches, have read handbooks on how to care for them,and have researched the internet dry on finches.

What do you like about this subject?

I like the fact that I will be helping people and hopefully saving fragile lives.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to help people who are inexperienced bird owners, like I was, know enough about their birds to at least give them a good life.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

All birds need a heater on them to keep them warm.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Societies of the same gender will be better foster parents.

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

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
