Here goes.... I did a kind thing today by rescuing 2 finches from a man who was selling all 27 of his assorted birds. Yes, 27. They were all housed in his finished basement, they all never saw the light of day. How awful is this? I am keeping them separated from the 4 finches I already have. I gave them a nesting house, extra perch, millet, new seed, fruit and veggies. They are by a window and they can finally see daylight. This made my day.

I will have 6 finches in total, 3 males, 3 females. This is the limit for me. Anyone know the best way to make the transition easy when I add them to my big cage? All advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.::eek:

I'd gladly send pic's but have no way to do it.

That's great. I agree, pictures would be great when they are settled. What type of finches are they?
One a society and the other, zebra.

How awesome of you to take them in. I love the title... meeping. :D I hand fed a couple babies many years ago for a co worker and ended up forever calling Zebra finches: Meep Meeps
My daughter "meeps" back and forth with them when she visits. Its really cute.

I'm glad I helped your day! I'd take more birds but I live in an apartment so I have all the birds I need. I also have 2 budgies, Rhapsody and Blue.

Congratulations on your new additions! :)
Thanks! Today they saw the sun for the first time plus millet and lettuce. So far so good.

Congratulations on rescuing them! I'm so glad they have a new, loving home to be theirs ;)

If you take a look at this link, it should help you figure out how to post pictures :thumbsbup:

I've never had finches, but I imagine you'd introduce them the same as budgies. After the 45-day quarantine, rearrange the big finch cage and put everyone in. Rearranging it should help aggressiveness over territory be eliminated, and hopefully everyone will get to know each other well.

Best of luck and we're looking forward to pictures! :D

It's great that you managed to take in these finches in need of a good forever home!
I would also love to see a couple of pics if you are able to take them. :)

Mine are very fun to watch and they often give out a morning call when they hear me coming. Today they not only got fruit & veggies but small pieces of twine to add to their nests. Their favorite veggie is green peas. Funny thing though, they never had babies, just eggs with yolks.:confused1:

I have 3 society and 3 zebra. They're very nice pets just like my keets.:proud:
