Collection: Foreign Finch

There are now several varieties of domesticated foreign finches and their hybrids and many are becoming available in various colour mutations, but perhaps the most common are the Zebra Finch (Typical clutch size 4-6 eggs), Bengalese (typical clutch size 5-8 eggs), and Gouldian Finches (Typical clutch size 4-6eggs). They originate mainly from tropical regions and therefore can benefit from feeding regimes suitable for tropical finches such as Haith's Foreign Finch Mix.

Seed mixtures suitable for this group of birds are based upon high quality Mixed Millets along with Canary and other plain seeds to give variety. Mixed millets usually consist of Red, Yellow and Japanese Millet along with high quality Panicum and Haith's Canadian Canary Seed all go to make the basis of a good domesticated foreign finch diet. Plain Seeds such as Niger, linseed, rape, hemp and teazel and sometimes, pinhead oats and sesame seed are all beneficial and used in tonic mixes to give variety and to make up some of the discrepancies in essential vitamins and minerals.

Most adult foreign finches will take Haith's Prosecto Insectivorous Food and rearing foods such as Nectarblend, Egg Biscuit Food and Haith's Rearing and Condition Food during the breeding season to help maintain their own condition and also to feed their developing chicks.

There will be times when there are signs of birds getting out of condition and then Haith's Foreign Finch Tonic Food can work wonders. Foraging activity should always be encouraged and there is no better way than to offer Haith's Millet Sprays suspended from the enclosure roof. Soaked millet sprays are also very beneficial as a rearing food but don't leave them around too long as they will develop moulds which can cause illness.
