Finches constitute one of the best loved classes of birds that are kept as pets at home. From massive aviaries to cages maintained by kids, finches are kept as pets because of the birds’ beautiful plumages and likable temperament and personalities.
Nearly all of the finches that are sold as domestic pets are species from the scientific family Estrilidadae. Many species sold in the United States originated from the tropical and subtropical regions of the world.
The easiest way to acquire finches is through pet shops and commercial aviaries. It is recommended that you find a good finch breeder/commercial aviary in your locality so that you can also consult with the experienced staff from the aviary. It is always a good thing to have actual experts that you can talk to when you need specialist knowledge about your new pets.
