Housing & Hubandry For Finches & Waxbills - An Overview

Why is where and how your choose to house your birds so imporant?

A cage is important, but knowing what kind of cage for your species, where you place that cage, what you put in it, and the number of times per week you spend cleaning bird cages is just as important. 


Read through the articles linked here to find out what type of cage is best for housing finches and where you should set that cage up. When you're ready, read through how to go about expanding your single cage into a full bird room, what optional equipment you may need, how to keep those cages clean, and what dangers may lurk in your aviary. Be sure to only keep houseplants from our Safe & Harmful Houseplant list near your birds.
