Finches are small, active birds. They are beautiful birds and great pets for all bird lovers. This article will teach you how to decide on what type of finch you want.
Consider how much you want to spend on your finch. Finches can cost anywhere between $10 and $100, but you also have to consider the cost of the cage, food, food dishes, perches, etc.
Choose what breed you want. Probably the most common breed for pet finches is the zebra finch, but there are other breeds that are good for pets, such as the spice finch, strawberry finch, society finch, and Gouldian finch.
Consider how much time you will spend caring for your finch. Some finches need more care and attention. If you are busy most of the day, then you will probably want a finch that mostly cares for itself, but if you are planning to spend a lot of time with your finch, one that needs a little more care won't be a problem.
Consider other pets. If you have a cat or dog, you may reconsider getting a finch since these animals usually don't get along. Although, if you are lucky, you may be able to find a finch that can befriend your other pets.
Search the internet for websites that give information about how to care for different breeds of finches.
Be sure you are capable of caring for a finch before actually purchasing one.
