Society Finches: Why They Are So Ideal As Pets?

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

Society finches, also known as Bengalese finches, are among the most suitable pets around the world. They are completely domesticated birds that cannot be found in nature. Domestication of animals itself implies that they are content to live in captivity, and in the wild. That is why they feel untroubled by your presence and do not look at you as a potential disturbance of their harmony. They are comfortable singing, bathing and eating in front of you, unlike other species that need more privacy.

The word "society" is the first step of describing their basic nature. These finches are very social, cheerful and charming birds, whose need to interact with other birds remains unchanged during their lifetime. It is a great pleasure watching their behavior in larger cages and aviaries, in order to observe how they spend their time flying, mating and chirping, jumping from one place to another. They are happiest when they live in groups. That way they could engage into various levels of communication with other birds and their temperament comes to the fore.

They are not aggressive at all. These little birds are very suitable for interaction with other kinds of birds, including other finches and little domestic birds like parakeets and canaries. Their friendly behavior is generally very noticeable, and it makes other birds feel that they are loved and respected. Due to their social and meek nature, getting a society finch would most definitely decrease the possible tension in the cage. These finches always tend to keep the peace and friendliness in their little society. That is why they deserve the best care and respect from you.

Previous experience with keeping or either breeding birds is not necessary because these finches adapt easily to your home conditions. Of course, basic information and enthusiasm are highly recommended, but all essential facts about their needs and care are quite easy to learn. Keeping some other kinds of finches requires broader experience and knowledge and little mistakes may be fatal for them. A lot of inexperienced bird enthusiasts find their hearts broken after a failed attempt to house birds that have special demands.

Society finches' alternate name, Bengalese finches, indicates that their land of origin is not Australia, as some may think. Their roots lay in the tropical lands of Continental Asia. Experienced breeders from Japan and China created these little birds, therefore, they virtually hybrids. They have three basic colors, but during the last century experienced enthusiast succeeded to produce a few more color appearances. For example, there is an albino finch, which is a member of the same society birds family. It is entirely white with beautiful, glowing red eyes.

Even two males are not aggressive toward each other, but they need company of females. You can use two males to foster eggs and chicks of other birds. Two male finches of the society family can take care of other bird's eggs and chicks, even better than a male and a female together, or two females. It is highly probable that they will accept other bird's eggs and will take good care of them.

Unlike some other finches, there are only minor differences in the appearance of males and females, which means they look almost exactly the same at first glance. However, there are ways to find out the bird's sex.

Now you know a little bit more about them. You know they are ideal pets for you and your family. You know they are vivid, charming and very special. Now the idea of offering them the warmth of your home sounds great.
