Traits:  Gouldian finches often develop a strong bond with their owner and are known for their loyalty. However, the Goundian finch also craves time with other birds. Gouldian finch owners notice these pet birds are intelligent and constantly watching the actions of their caretakers. Gouldian finches are social birds, so when keeping a pet Gouldian finch, it is best to have more than one, possibly two of the same sex to avoid breeding.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  The Gouldian finches are susceptible to egg binding, constipation and mites. Provide a varied diet for your Gouldian finch that consists of seed, greens, cuttlebone and egg food. Finches can be sensitive to diet changes and cold temperatures, so they need time to acclimate to changes in their environment. Gouldian finches require more food during a molt. House Gouldians in a large cages to allow for plenty of room for flight. Gouldian finches also enjoy bathing as often as the owner will allow.
