Where They Like to Live

The cage for a finch is much like a canary cage, however finches love space and love to fly, sing and socialize. The minimum cage size for two finches is (62cm x 36cm x 46cm) with metal bars spaced no more than an inch apart. Perches should be made available to allow the finch to exercise its feet. The most suitable bedding used in a finches cage is sand paper or beach chippings.

Where do they come from?

Zebra Finches come from Australia, the Bengalese Finch originates from Japan and China. Java sparrows Finches come from Southern Asia.

Exercise and play

It is a good idea to provide toys within the cage for finches, perches and balls are recommended. Fiches rarely like being handled so it is important that there are proper toys available for them to interact with instead.
