Finches: Australian


Australian finches inhabit a wide range of grasslands and forests, usually close to water. They are typically found in open steppes with scattered bushes and trees. These finches can be kept in breeding cages or mixed aviaries with other bird species such as canaries, budgies, cockatiels, quail or small parakeets. They are bright and chirpy birds as well as being very inexpensive. The Bengalese finch will also foster all of these bird species.



Easy to Sex: Some species can be visually sexed but Bicheno and Hex finches are more difficult. Lifespan: 5-12 years. Diet: Foreign finch seed, millet sprays, egg food, mealworms, small insects and green food. Specialties: They should have a bath on a daily basis and be kept in the dry and warmth through the colder weather.
