    Zebra Finches

    I'm thinking of getting a same sex pair of zebra finches at the next bird fair(June). I'll be reading about them on the internet, but any info I can get here would be nice .

    I have this cage, that used to be my budgies. Would it be big enough for two? I have no problem with getting a nice flight cage, but I thought I'd ask.

    Also, what kind of diet is best? Pellets, seeds, plus fresh things right? Just like hookbills, but on a smaller scale?

    That cage should be fine for two. Pellets have no place in a finches diet, just seed and fresh foods (greens, veg, fruit, egg etc), livefood can also be given.

    There's an article here on finches that should help.

    There tend to be tons at the bird fairs, so I don't think I'll have much of a problem finding a pair. The hard part is picking one out!
