Finches love to have visual contact with people, however, typically do not like to be handled. Talking and whistling to your bird will provide them the interaction and socialization they need. The soothing sounds of the male bird make the finch an entertaining pet. There are multiple species of finches and some do not get along. As a general rule, larger species of finches should not be housed in the same cage as smaller species.
Things to remember
Nutrition Feed her 1-2 teaspoons per day of a pellet or seed-based, fortified finch diet.
High metabolic rate Because a finch's metabolism is very active, food should beavailable at all times.
Long-term companions Before purchasing, be aware that a finch requires a long-term commitment of approximately 5 years.
Supplements Be sure to provide a cuttle bone in your finch's cage at all times.
Habitat Finches like to fly, so when selecting a cage remember that length is better than height. Your finch's cage must be large enough for her to comfortably stretch her wings and fly from perch to perch. The bigger the cage, the better.

My Zebra FinchesI bought my male zebra finch from PetSmart and a female from another store. The male is pretty and both him and the female are very small. The male is loud and sings all day. They both sing, but the female is quieter. They are both playful and energetic. They are fun and good to watch. They are easy to take care of. Although I wanted a quiet pet, these birds are good pets.
