Potential Finch & Waxbill Health Issues - An Overview

While you may never see some of these issues, it's important to know about them all!

There's nothing more frightening to a bird owner than to find their bird sick on the bottom of the cage.  In this series of articles, we discuss the various finch & waxbill health issues most commonly seen in the aviary, how they come about, and how to avoid or correct them.


While we do offer some suggested treatment, we do NOT condone using this information without first acquiring an accurate diagnosis from an Avian Veterinarian. Use this information with caution and at your own risk.
