Available Babies & Blog

I adopt out birds according the the natural reproductve cycle and can only estimate the color and availability. I do offer a birth certificate, leg band and health guarantee. Please note every finch is hand fed from a very young age- If you are a show breeder and do not require them to be hand fed, the adoption fee is reduced as my expenses are greatly reduced. I am also open to 'finch trading' for supplies or specimens.

I also design custom enclosures, and modify your existing enclosures. For more information please contact fetchingfinchesaviary@gmail.com

We are awaiting 7 new clutches (6 eggs each) in the coming weeks. While some of these have been reserved, there are many still availble and I will be clear with updating from now on. I appol...

Introduction of a New Bird

Posted by fetchingfinchesaviary@gmail.com on January 14, 2015 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Consider thee steps when integrating a new finch into an existing community:

Zebs make up for their small stature by being slightly territorial (yet at the same time social) and work well in community cages provided their is ample space. Introducing a new bird to the community can disturb the social order and the new bird can be met with aggression. There are a few steps to prevent this:
