Frequently Asked Questions
Gouldian finches for pets?
Gouldian finches are very hands off because they are much too fast, small, and constantly alert to be handled. They are very active, cheerfully vocal, and beautiful to admire with the eyes and can make an excellent addition to the right household. If you are more content with admiring birds with your eyes and ears, rather than handling them, the Gouldian finch might be the pet of your dreams!
How many do I need?
The Gouldian finch does not need any company, but they will be more charismatic if given the opportunity to share their space with a playmate, as well as more interesting to observe.
What kind of diet do they require?
Like most birds, Gouldian finches enjoy seeds! Pisces recommends mixing together a medley of seeds, fruits, and veggies. Try to steer towards leafy greens like small pieces of lettuce, spinach, dandelion, etc. For a special treat, add small insects to the mix. Always purchase a seed mix specific to finches and make sure your finches have access to seed and fresh water at all times.
What kind of enclosure do I need?
Get the largest cage you can, keeping in mind that horizontal space takes priority over vertical space. Make sure the space between the bars is not large enough for the finch to escape or get stuck. Place a variety of different perches at different heights throughout the cage. Line the bottom of the cage with newspapers to easily dispose of waste.
