Animal Stories - Society Finch


Animal-World Information about: Society Finch

   The word "society" suits these little birds to a tee, as they are very social and like to get into everybody's business! Society Finches make great pets for the beginner. They are one of the easiest birds to care for, very hardy, inexpensive, and are prolific breeders.

I have 2 societies, I think they didn't mate because they didn't prepare a nest, the female doesn't look that fat, it a little fatter then the male, how do I make them mate without buying more?

I received 3 finches for my birthday. Within about three weeks, they had laid four eggs. Okay, I thought, they aren't all going to hatch...
Guess what. They all did.
So now I had 7 finches. My cage was beginning to look awfully small, so we were gifted with a much bigger one from a friend of my father's. There was a catch, though; we had to adopt a new finch, this time a Zebra Finch.
So now I had 8.
They recently hatched another egg, I believe about four days ago.
So now I have 9.
Lovin' every minute of these wonderful pet birds.

I took eight finches from a friend that was no longer able to care for them and although she was sad to see them go, she was happy that they would be going to a good home. I now have four adults and four adolecents, and they are so much fun to watch as they go about their daily routine. I am really appreciative of all the good tips that I am getting from everyone. Two of them are now showing signs of nesting behaviors, so this will be something to watch as they go through the process.

Good Morning,
I hope i am not out of line here. I am new to this site. My son was recently given a pair of finches.They have bonded well nested and have 6 eggs due to hatch any day now. I was wondering if some one could tell me what chances might be that they are related the female is brown with specked chest and the male is brown with white chest and head. I was unprepared for this so soon after getting them. the nest was already in the cage when given. I am hoping the previous owner would have told us if they were and why the nest if they are not a breeding pair? can any one help me here?

We purchased 2 society finches Nov 2008 and they had their first babies Jan 2009. They laid 4 eggs, but only two babies were born. We watched the mother and father feed the babies, and at one point one of the babies had been thrown from the nest and landed in the food bowl. I picked up the little pink body and put it back into the cage. They didn't throw the babies out any other time, yet I was always anxious as I looked into the cage numerous times during the day. I was amazed how fast they grew and how they were the size of the parents in 4 weeks! We watched how the mother taught the birds one by one how to fly and eat. Now they are 5 weeks old and the mom has laid 5 more eggs. It is interesting to see how all 4 birds get into the nest while there are 5 eggs inside! We love our finches.

I have number of finches; black cheeks, orange cheeks, cream cplored, as well as only one society male finch paired with white albino zebra finch having 4 small cheeks. I don't know who crossed that female society male or other zebra male finch. I have a couple of spice finch having eggs as well as a pakistani silver bill couple, also laying eggs. One couple of red berry finch and one couple of tri colored finch, male try to charge female but female not charged. My only wish is to get owl finches and society finches. Of may ALLAH, I couldn't get them here in the pakistan market. In my city still they are not available.
