Finches are generally seedeaters and eat a variety of plant seeds, especially grasses. Since season dictates seed availability, there are times of the year when insects and certain fruits, berries and vegetation will constitute the bulk of the diet.
Birds that are extremely young, stressed, injured, laying eggs or raising young may have certain special requirements. There are specially formulated pelleted foods available for birds with specific nutritional requirements. Consult your veterinarian regarding these situations.
Always monitor the amount of food eaten every day by each bird.
Offer fresh water every day.
Offer a variety of fresh foods every day.
Offer fresh fruits and vegetables every day
Clean all food and water dishes daily.
No to a food item one day does not mean no forever – KEEP TRYING!
