Traits:  Their willingness to bond and even sit with their owners make society finches popular pet birds. Society finches are friendly and get along well with other species of birds. They make good parents, and they breed easily and successfully. Society finches can be a comical and will often break into a soft song. As their name suggests, the overall well-being of a society finch thrives when they are kept in pairs or colonies.

Behavior/Health Concerns:  Provide a varied diet for your society finch that consists of seed, greens, cuttlebone and egg food. Yellow, white and panicum millets along with canary seed make up the base bird diet for these finches. You can also provide spray and Japanese millet along with fresh greens such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Society finches enjoy bathing frequently, so keep a shallow dish for bathing water as well as clean drinking water. Replace with fresh water and keep your birds' dishes clean. Society finches often require additional food during a molt.
