Strawberry finches for sale, the Strawberry Finches are petite little birds and as beautiful as they are charming.

Care and Feeding of Strawberry finches for sale
Fresh food and water must be provided daily. A good finch seed mix will provide their everyday preference for white and yellow millets and canary seed and is readily available at a pet store. In a separate cup supply green foods regularly, such as lettuce, spinach, celery tops, and chickweed. They also enjoy sprouted canary seed. Other supplements include green seed, mealworms, aphids, papae, and daphnia. Finch treats of seed with honey, fruits and vegetables are fun for your bird too, as well as nutritious!
Grit with charcoal is essential to aid in digestion and it contains valuable minerals and trace elements. Grit should be provided in a special cup or sprinkled over the bottom of the cage floor. Provide a cuttlebone because the calcium it provides will give your bird a firm beak, strong eggshells when breeding, and will prevent egg binding. The lime in the cuttlebone also aids in digestion.
Offer your finch a bath occasionally by providing a bath dish that is 1″ deep with a 1/2″ of water, or a clip-on bathhouse.
Their nails may occasionally need to be trimmed, but be careful never to clip into the vein as the bird can quickly bleed to death. Bird nail trimmers and styptic powder to stop the bleeding are available at pet shops. Buy Strawberry finches for sale
